Songs when the truth,
Are all dedicated to you,
In this invisible world I choose to live in,
And if u believe that,
That now i understand,
Why words mean so much to you,
They'll never be about you.
Maybe your young without youth,
Or maybe your old without knowing anythings true,
I think your young without youth.

Then you contract the American dream,
You'll never look up once,
You've contracted American dreams,
I'd aqquire you to stop and look up.

Sing a song about myself,
Keep singing a song about myself,
Not some invisible world.

Constantly searching to find something new,
But what will you find when you think that nothings true,
Maybe it's that nothing is new,
So you let me hear songs that were written all about you,
The good songs weren't written for you,
They'll never be about you.

Then you contract the American dream,
You'll never look up once,
You've contracted American dreams,
You'll never look up once,
Don't look up.

Sing a song about myself,
Keep singing a song about myself,
Not some invisible world. [Repeat x2]

And i won't tell you what this means,
'Cos you already know,
And i won't tell you what this means,
'Cos you already know.

So, sing a song about myself,
Keep singing a song about myself,
Not some invisible world. [Repeat x3]

You'll find what you find,
When you find there's nothing. [Repeat x2]

    Correct lyrics:

    Songs, when they're truth
    Are all dedicated to you
    In this invisible world i choose to live in
    And if you believe that
    Then now i understand why words mean so much to you:
    Because they'll never be about you

    Maybe you're young without youth
    Or maybe you're old without knowing anything's true
    I think you're young without youth

    Then you contract the american dream
    You never look up once
    You've contracted american dreams
    I require you to stop and look up

    Sing a song about myself
    Keep singing a song about myself
    Not some invisible world

    --
    The good songs weren't written for you
    And they'll never be about you

    Then you contract the american dream
    You never look up once
    You've contracted american dreams
    You never look up once
    Don't look up

    Sing a song about myself
    Keep singing a song about myself
    Not some invisible world [x 2]

    And i won't tell you what this means
    Cause you already know
    And i won't tell you what this means
    Cause you already know

    So

    Sing a song about myself
    Keep singing a song about myself
    Not some invisible world [x 3]

    You came along and found the weak spot
    That you've always wanted
    Let yourself be everything
    That you've always wanted
    It doesn't have to be so decided
    That you've always wanted
    No need for explanations
    You've always wanted

    You'll find what you find
    When you find there's nothing

    And you'll find what you find
    When you find there's nothing...
