Amerika

Album: Home Of The Strange (2016)
  • And so I've arrived
    With gold in my eyes
    Are you paying attention?

    I was searching for something
    As I watched you run
    I was sad when you said that you never really wanted some
    Were you looking for someone?
    As I watched you go
    I am mad because I don't know what you used me for
    I've been looking for so long
    In Amerika
    Throw my hands in the air!

    Flash faded
    Say you care but you don't
    You know I hate it!
    It's a rich kid game didn't grow up with a throne
    It's all it really is

    I was searching for something
    As I watched you run
    I was sad when you said that you never really wanted some
    Were you looking for someone?
    As I watched you go
    I am mad because I don't know what you used me for
    Always talkin' 'bout one day
    In Amerika
    It's the same story, oh
    You want glory son
    I've been looking for so long
    But you cut me out!
    Throw my hands in the air 'cause I

    Your palace
    All the friends you own
    So jealous
    Felt that rich kid pain what it is to be alone
    It's all it really is

    I was searching for something
    As I watched you run
    I was sad when you said that you never really wanted some
    Were you looking for someone?
    As I watched you go
    I am mad because I don't know what you used me for
    Always talking about one day in Amerika
    It's the same story, oh
    You want glory son
    In Amerika! In Amerika!
    In Amerika! In Amerika!
    In Amerika! In Amerika! Writer/s: JACOB TILLEY, ERIC CANNATA, PAYAM DOOSTZADEH, FRANCOIS COMTOIS, SAMEER GADHIA
