Federal Empire, The - The American Dream Lyrics




I smoke weed in the city of a Netflix nation
Laying in bed all day, stay naked
Never gonna stop until I have it all
I want a burger with fries, supersize my bacon
Big apple pie, as much as I can take in
Never gonna stop until I have it all

Singing ooooh
Give me liberty or give me death
Oooooh
Ain't nothing else

I want what I want, not what I need
Even if it kills me I'll be free
I want what I want, not what I need
The American dream
I want what I want, not what I need
Even if it kills me I'll be free
What I want's just what I want
The American dream

I want a house on the hill and a couple other mansions
G4, a jet and a Lambo to crash in
Never gonna stop until I have it all
I want a Playboy Bunny in a schoolgirl outfit
Botox lips in a Silicon Valley
Never gonna stop until I have it all

Singing ooooh
Give me liberty or give me death
Oooooh
Ain't nothing else

I want what I want, not what I need
Even if it kills me I'll be free
I want what I want, not what I need
The American dream
I want what I want, not what I need
Even if it kills me I'll be free
What I want's just what I want
The American dream

I like it bigger, faster, stronger
Give it to me louder, harder
I like it bigger, faster, stronger
Give it to me louder, harder
I like it bigger, faster, stronger
Give it to me louder, harder
I like it bigger, faster, stronger
Give it to me louder, harder

I want what I want, not what I need
Even if it kills me I'll be free
I want what I want, not what I need
The American dream
I want what I want, not what I need
Even if it kills me I'll be free
What I want's just what I want
The American dream
What I want's just what I want
The American dream

I like it

Federal Empire, The The American Dream Comments
  1. Santiago Barboza

    This song is amazing! As an Uruguayan who's biggest dream is to migrate to the US and became a citizen, it really touches me! That is the American Dream, freedom and unlimited opportunities!

  2. Racc Gaming

    Yep I'm American and this is the literal definition of modern day america. Great song.

    CarolinaLiarOnline

    thank you are you coming out to any of the new shows were playing

  3. Сам Радаковицх

    Very nice flow, and a well executed example of an intentionally anti-climactic ending. Truly amazing vocals, and instrumentals that don't overpower the lyrics like in many songs nowadays. Top tier song, good job.

    CarolinaLiarOnline

    thank you

  4. Lucyzi _

    I found this song on Amazon music and not only fell in love with the style in general but also with the lyrics! In my opinion songs where the lyrics actually mean something are way better, just like in this song here :)

  5. Kenny Gwin

    The American Dream is strong ,but the the government need is stronger ..

  6. dracoqueen12

    Kiwi Here, Great Song I Love It. :)

  7. дедпул епта

  8. dracoqueen12

  23. Sand A

    The lyrics are kind of sad to me, but I like the beat. Thanks for sharing~

  24. slimm 21

    Just found this band and this song. Good music good band

  25. StephanePare

    I like that you guys write complete verses, plural. It's a lost talent in this world of 4x 4 line, 1x 2 line verses, and sometimes a 2 lines bridge music wasteland. Keep on rocking, your songs are more repeatable for it

  26. confuse cup-cake

    got chance to see you yesterday at place bell with lindsey stirling, guys you were amasing ! totally sub from this day

    The Federal Empire

    thank you

  27. Jakestar05

    Great song! From UK with love! ❤️

  28. Marek

    Why isn't this song known more? So glad i found it, a true music gem

  29. Katia Lei

    I don’t know whether to interpret this song at surface value as literally “I want what I want” or if this song is actually a clever criticism of the typical american’s desires and views, and how they consistently choose what they want over what they need, to their own detriment (like the example of a burger and fries - you might want fast food, but it’s not what you need because it’s unhealthy and eventually makes you sick). Eh, imma interpret this as the latter, I really like to perceive this as a clever criticism of The Modern America. Really catchy as well! Love it :)

    Hype_Darkwater

    I think it is the latter, great song regardless.

    S i G G

    Either way, everyone jokes about their culture. Haha, it's funny, honestly, it's true about America. From experience, I must say, it is quite close.

    Fattest tuesday

    @S i G G true

    that guy

    howbout no

  30. Rada Qardava

    Love them

  31. theuncanspan

    Nice patriotic song with a country twist. Keep it up you guys, i know you since Carolina Liars and just as i happened to stumble on "i'm not over" for nostalgia's sake i saw your comment and that's how i know now about the band name change. I've thought all along that you guys got disbanded ever since. But you're such a promising band i wish you nothing but the best of luck.

  32. Sarah Stockhausen

    OMG this song is so nice, it's the Best song ever

  33. Jonathan Minoli

    Amazing song! i heard it on The Resident. From Argentina with love!

    The Federal Empire

    Heard you when you guys where in New Orleans and you guys were great!

    The Federal Empire

  60. Halvor Skålid

    I hope this is making fun of "the american dream" and not justifying the way Americans are. because the rest of the world see you as loud, obnoxus, fat, stupid. also America is like the most corupt Western country. Nice song tho, if you listen to as a song that makes fun of itself and America.

    The Federal Empire

    Halvor Skålid haha yeah it's a joke

    Citizen X

    @ halbush I guess the view from the lower rungs does suck. HAHAHA wherever you're from is little league. Guaranteed.

    DawnStarLightning

    The Federal Empire Oh thank goodness I was hoping it was satire. Lol I've just ran into a few too many people recently who would take this at face value..

    Noappeal 3604

    nah I love the way we are

  61. Not Stipis
