B.o.B – American Dreamin' lyrics

[B. O. B]
Well I got up today
And I put on my shades
And I said I was fine (I'm fine)
But everyone knew that I was lying
If you look at my face
And the way that I behave
You will still see a disguise
Even if you was blind (damn)

But now I'm saying bye, goodbye
American Dreaming
American dreaming
It's not that hard to find
Cause most of the time
I'm American sleeping
I barely can see it
But now I'm saying bye, goodbye

As I rhyme and I rap
The average listener is blind to the fact
That my mind has been tapped
I carry the World as it lies on my back
My spine coulda cracked so
Please pay me no mind as I laugh
This is all a stage every line is an act
Killing the American dream with a trap
Like a axe, I'ma put it in a sack
I'ma put it in the back of the black cadilliac
Cause I'm travelling
Some say that I'm throw like a javelin
I'm really tryna expose to the galaxy
Then break off the mould to normalities
People called the election a tradegy
Looking at the screen like this can't be happening
I aint saying that I'm some kind of activist
But someting be attacking us


Okay, bring it back
I was filling my time just posing
Like a mannequine you pass by
Tryna make it one day to the big league
Where the girls aint hard to find
All the time I was just searching
A plastic promised land
And I got myself entangled in a corporated plan (sign here)
But a dream is nothing
And it's everything at the same time
So you never know when you might wake up
And find you was just living a lies
Goodbye, just like Trey said
Goodbye America, Goodbye
Cause anything but the truth is a waste of time
