I’m not a friend or foe, I’m a confident liar
What you need the most, I’m going to hang from a wire
And while I watch you jump, I catch my breath
So, I can leave this place and move onto the next

You’ve got mouths to feed, I’ve got to check my phone
Everybody look at me, so I don’t feel too alone
But is there no one left, to hold my hand
Just forget about the others, because I’m an American

You can build your houses, you can pick your truths
And all the money comes to you or does what it’s supposed to do
There are fireworks out, you can use your name
To get your fame and fortune, it’s the American way

I can do no wrong, they say god’s with me
I get to cast my shadow while you beg in the street
Well, you can hold your own, you don’t need my hand
But here’s a dollar for your trouble because I’m an American

I think I want to die for this, but there’s not much for me
Dressing like a patriot in a Cinderella story
There’s no way out after what I say
No one forgives you, it’s the American way
