Queensrÿche I'm American Lyrics

I gotta have it, gotta drink the high life
I'll buy a new suit, black skinny necktie
I'll mingle with elite and imitate
And they'll never even get it 'til I hit 'em

I've got no fear 'cause I've weathered the breakdown
San Quentin to the edge of the Big Town
I'm a man of the people
In the home of the brave, and I'm no man's slave

Because I'm free
I deserve everything I can get
I'm American
I'm American

If you voted for the man you're wasting time
He's got his fingers dipped in everyone's pie
The news can't wait to promote
All the bullshit this government is selling

I've got this plan in motion, countdown
Assassinate, terminate, smack down
There's a war in my head and it needs to be said
If they think they can take me they're dead

Because I'm free
I deserve everything I can get
I'm American
I'm American

Because I'm free
And I'll get everything I can get
I'm American
I'm American

What do you believe in?
What are you living for?
Do you want what they're selling you
Another television war?

I can't stop! I feel I gotta have more!
That's right, more!
I want more!

Yeah, I'm free
I deserve everything I can get
I'm American
I'm American

Yeah, I'm free
And I'll get everything I can get
I'm American
I'm American

Are you free?
You deserve everything you can get
I'm American
I'm American

Yeah, I'm free
I deserve everything
I'm American
I'm American
