Chelsea Grin – American Dream lyrics

[Verse 1]
Did you ever think that you'd be where you are today?
Did you ever dream that you'd be something really great?
But then it fades, and you except reality,
And you can't keep a straight face.

[Pre-Chorus]
Swallow another pill, say it's okay,
Everything will be okay.

[Chorus]
What have I done?
I just want to run.
I feel like an empty shell,
Created my own hell.
Lost inside myself,
Knowing that I failed,
This is how it feels!

[Verse 2]
Living the american dream,
What do you think?
Is it everything you thought it would be?

[Pre-Chorus]
Swallow another pill, say it's okay,
Everything will be okay.

[Chorus]
What have I done?
I just want to run.
I feel like an empty shell,
Created my own hell.
Lost inside myself,
Knowing that I failed,
This is how it feels!

[Bridge]
And I know I fucking failed myself,
I can't feel a thing anymore.

What have I done?
I just want to run.
I feel like an empty shell,
Created my own hell.
Lost inside myself,
Knowing that I failed,
This is how it feels!

[Outro]
Living the american dream,
Is it everything you thought it would be?
