Album: Bitter Rivals (2013)

Songfacts®:

  • This less than 3-minute song finds Alexia Krauss dissing the American Dream. Guitarist Derek Miller explained the song's meaning to NME: "It's a comment about what a lot of people want in life. I think what constitutes maybe a lot of people's American Dreams terrifies me. I mean a car, whatever. You want a nice automobile? Wonderful. But the spoils become the thing itself sometimes in this county. It's easy just to sit here and have this conversation because we have power and money. By which I mean lights are on in my apartment right now. So I'm keenly aware of that."
