lyrics

AMERICAN DREAM


All the world’s a stage
On Sunset Blvd.
All the angels wanna play
A role in my last song

Hollywood glamour
Starry-eyed beauty queens
Everyone wants to be them
‘Til tabloids scream murder scene

Sex, Drugs, Rock & Roll
Dark, erotic Film-Noir
Blonde-haired blue-eyed bombshell
Oh that pretty, Femme Fatale

Holly Wood’s got a dark side, who will she be tonight?
Will she play Ms. Suicide, or will she be the knife?

- But -

As long as I end up on the silver screen
I’ll be livin’ the American Dream
As long as I end up in a magazine
I’ll be livin’ the American Dream

I’ve got ten bucks to my name
But it don’t mean a thing
I wanna play the game
No matter what it takes

California Dream
I’ve been seduced by you
Even if you kill me
Under the pale blue moon

Baby, it’s not hard
Just let those clothes fall
We’re a slave to out art
Even if it destroys us

Do you have to be asleep to believe?
The American Dream is not quite what it seems

As long as I end up on the silver screen
I’ll be livin’ the American Dream
As long as I end up in a magazine
I’ll be livin’ the American Dream

Lights, camera
Red white and blue
The only thing I’ve become
Is black and blue

For every shining star
There is a sullen grave
And every hopeful dream
A tragic nightmare

If I’m always on the outside, looking in
Will I ever get to be, ‘Ms. American Queen?’

As long as I end up on the silver screen
I’ll be livin’ the American Dream
As long as I end up in a magazine
I’ll be livin’ the American Dream

Livin’ the American Dream
Live fast; don’t fall asleep
Livin’ the American Dream
Live fast; don’t fall asleep
