I've got a big house
I've got a fast car
I believe I am free

I'm a good citizen
Proud of my children
I love my wife
I love my life

But something isn't sitting right
Something wakes me up at night
The background noise
The background noise

Something isn't sitting right
Something wakes me up at night
The background noise
The background noise

My government respects me
My gun is my security
My wealth accounts
My loyalty counts

I abide by society
I give to charity
I turn to faith
when I cannot explain

But something isn't sitting right
Something wakes me up at night
The background noise
The background noise

Something's not sitting right
something wakes me up at night
The background noise
Noise

But something isn't sitting right
Something wakes me up at night
The background noise
The background noise
