I live under a rock with a blacklight
I'm a dumb pop star in my own right
Started life at age 15, got ahead with fake ID's
If you're with me
Sold my soul to the man with a handshake
Lost control but I don't think it's too late
We're dying young on broadcast news
Forever 21 is cool if I make it

Girls, let's put on all of our clothes (ha!)

I don't wanna be like american kids
I am not on drugs and I've never been
I don't care about your party, I belong to nobody
I don't wanna be like american kids
Drugs don't work like they did for my parents
I'm not down with the new hit
'Cause today I just don't get american kids

Last time I told mom that "I love you"
Was the last time I ate food from a drive thru
It never happened like they say
I think my father may be gay but I don't know

So I burned all my shit in a bonfire
All my teen regrets were a trip wire
I should be everything you hate
I should be higher now than space but I'm static

Boys, aren't even boys anymore (ha!)

I don't wanna be like american kids
I am not on drugs and I've never been
I don't care about your party, I belong to nobody
I don't wanna be like american kids
Drugs don't work like they did for my parents
I'm not down with the new hit
'Cause today I just don't get american kids

Liberty isn't cheap and it ain't free
I'm a millennial blame it all on me
American kids
American kids
American kids
