lyrics

There's a long long list of all I haven't got
And lucky bastards who should all be shot
Now every corner's been taken, gotta find a new room
Don't say you don't cause you're scared cause it's all over too soon

I've seen old shots of Charlie Watts
I've seen old shots of Charlie Watts
I do not wish for what i haven't got
But i've seen old shots of Charlie Watts

The American dream i had last night was a bad dream
The American dream i had last night was a bad dream

This town is a shitpit of black-flagged ships
Where underaged women with oversized lips
Are pulling us down with a shake of their hips
We buy them big drinks but they only take sips

Knowing the score means knowing what worked before
And being at bat means put your back into that
The rats they are gnawing me to shreds
From coast to coast, in a thousand beds of

American dreams that I had last night, they were bad dreams
The American dream i had last night was a bad dream
