American dream

American Dream

I grew up hoping one day I can be me
So foreign, so hard for so many to conceive 
Realized early that me didn’t produce enough GDP
So I put me on hold, shit was too costly 
Then I thought if I work hard I can set me free
But by then me has been held so long in captivity 
That we couldn’t even figure out who me be
So I go back to paying for my occupancy 
In this one man cell but shit at least I keep it fancy 
Work so hard and so long I said fuck it
I just forgot to be me, forgot to be free
I guess that’s what they meant by the American Dream
