"Amerika" as written by and Eric Cannata Jacob Tilley....
And so I've arrived
With gold in my eyes
Are you paying attention?

I was searching for something
As I watched you run
I was sad when you said that you never really wanted some
Were you looking for someone?
As I watched you go
I am mad because I don't know what you used me for
I've been looking for so long
In Amerika
Throw my hands in the air!

Flash faded
Say you care but you don't
You know I hate it!
It's a rich kid game didn't grow up with a throne
It's all it really is

I was searching for something
As I watched you run
I was sad when you said that you never really wanted some
Were you looking for someone?
As I watched you go
I am mad because I don't know what you used me for
Always talkin' 'bout one day
In Amerika
It's the same story, oh
You want glory son
I've been looking for so long
But you cut me out!
Throw my hands in the air 'cause I

Your palace
All the friends you own
So jealous
Felt that rich kid pain what it is to be alone
It's all it really is

I was searching for something
As I watched you run
I was sad when you said that you never really wanted some
Were you looking for someone?
As I watched you go
I am mad because I don't know what you used me for
Always talking about one day in Amerika
It's the same story, oh
You want glory son
In Amerika! In Amerika!
In Amerika! In Amerika!
In Amerika! In Amerika!

    General Commentwell it's about the pursuit of the american dream, achieving that dream and realising how empty and lonely money and success really is 'that rich kid pain what it is to be alone'. It's a really fantastic song and deals with so many themes. It is also a critic of materialism and capitalist ideals how money even allows u to 'own' friends. In the end he says 'I am mad because I don't know what you used me for'. I think this is him shouting out at society saying why did you tell me that i should seek 'glory' when all i would find is loneliness. That is how society uses you putting empty ideals in your head. I also think he's talking to his child who's about to make the same mistakes as him as at the end he says 'same old story oh you want glory son'. if anyone knows why he's spelt america with a k please say.
