"American Dreams" as written by and Jason Evigan Jacoby Dakota Shaddix....
It feels like American dreams caught on fire
We’re tearing down the white picket fences
A solider bleeds and a soldier dies
Have you ever thought the world was a sickness?
I’m a son of it, fucked up from it
Casualty of my family ‘cause of it
We dare to dream or live to die
Reunited by the truth at the right time

Something’s wrong here or so it seems
‘Cause I’m not sleeping in American dreams

American lies
We’re trying to see through the smoke in our eyes
So give me the truth, don’t tell me your lies
‘Cause it’s harder to breathe when your buried alive
By American dreams

With every bullet hole there’s a blood stain
Another family that’s struggling to keep sane
‘Cause the neighborhood ain’t a safe place
Got us all wearing black every Sunday
And I’m growing numb to the violence
Sing along to the sound of the sirens
We’re trying to keep ourselves alive
But it’s hard to get by when it feels like

Something’s wrong here or so it seems
‘Cause I’m not sleeping in American dreams

American lies
We’re trying to see through the smoke in our eyes
So give me the truth, don’t tell me your lies
‘Cause it’s harder to breathe when your buried alive
By American dreams

‘Cause I’m not sleeping in American dreams

American lies
We’re trying to see through the smoke in our eyes
So give me the truth, don’t tell me your lies
‘Cause it’s harder to breathe when your buried alive
By American dreams

By American dreams
