Rayland Baxter - Strange American Dream Lyrics




Hey baby
Hey baby

Maybe I was born sick
In a castle on top of the world
Maybe the whole gang is better off
Makin' money out fightin' a war
Terminal motion
Keeps spinnin' me around
Temporary devotion
With a picket fence and a rowdy crowd

Well I was sure that everything was goin' fine
Until you took the shot and killed me with your mind
I'm a man and I wanna be honest
I'm better than I used to be

But now the whole world is wired up
On the red, white, and the green
And all the boys and girls are growin' up
In a strange American dream

Temperature risin'
And the water tastes like blood
Look at all of the sensitive people
Screamin' from their yards
And my neighbor down the street
With the pretty face and the rubber jaw
Has plenty there to eat
But she don't share nothin' at all

Well I was sure that everything was goin' fine
Until you took the shot and killed me with your mind
I'm a man and I wanna be honest
I'm better than I used to be

But now the whole world is wired up
On the red, white, and the green
And all the boys and girls are growin' up
In a strange American dream

This ain't nothin' like
What I thought it'd be like
When I was a little kid
I drew dinosaurs fightin' wars
Behind the doors I reinforced with
Red, yellow and green
From all the cameras in front of us
I couldn't tell you what it is I see
So I close my eyes and realize
That I'm alive deep inside this
Strange American dream

But now the whole world is wired up
On the red, white, and the green
And all the boys and girls, yeah they're growin' up
In a strange
In a strange
In a strange American dream

    Pop music doesn't get any better. Please find this song pop radio

    Ryan Bham

    You do know pop only stands for popular? Would love to say this is above and beyond what’s considered popular music these days.

    This is real, good feeling music. I agree in a sense that this deserves to be what’s popular these days. Talent, they play their own instruments and the lyrics aren’t the same 3 words nor same 3 chords.

  16. Ari Maulana
