SWITCHFOOT - AMERICAN DREAM

[INTRO]
 E E E E (x1)
 G D A (x2)
 E E E E (x1)

[VERSE 1]
           E
When success is equated with excess
      G         D          A
The ambition for excess wrecks us
        E
As the top of the mind becomes the bottom line 
      E         
When success is equated with excess

[VERSE 2]
          E
If your time ain't been nothing for money 
            G          D             A
I start to feel really bad for you, honey 
         E
Maybe honey, put your money where your mouth's been running 
          E
If your time ain't been nothing but money

[PRECHORUS]
 E         F#m             A
I want out of this machine

It doesn't feel like freedom

[CHORUS]
 E                        A
This ain't my American dream
 E                          A
I want to live and die for bigger things 
 F#m                              D
I'm tired of fighting for just me 
E                              G D A G D A
This ain't my American dream     

[VERSE 3]
E
When success is equated with excess
            G                        D    A
When we're fighting for the Beamer, the Lexus 
        E                  
As the heart and soul breath in the company goals 
 E
Where success is equated with excess

[PRECHORUS]
 E         F#m             A
I want out of this machine

It doesn't feel like freedom

[CHORUS]
 E                        A
This ain't my American dream
 E                          A
I want to live and die for bigger things 
 F#m                              D
I'm tired of fighting for just me 
E                              
This ain't my American dream     

[BRIDGE]
       G                      D        A
'Cause baby's always talkin' 'bout a ring 
     G                       D         A
And talk has always been the cheapest thing 
       G                        E
Is it true would you do what I want you to 
     G                      D         A
If I show up with the right amount of bling?


n.c
Like a puppet on a monetary string
n.c
Maybe we've been caught singing
 E                    A     G
Red, white, blue, and green
               G
But that ain't my America,
           G
That ain't my American dream

[CHORUS]

 E                        A
This ain't my American dream
 E                          A
I want to live and die for bigger things 
 F#m                              D
I'm tired of fighting for just me 
E                              
This ain't my American dream   

E E E E
