We broke down, trying to leave town
Flying down the road to change
We were born to run
Cali, here we come
Escape from Nowhere, USA
Say goodbye to white picket fences (bye)
Say hello to palm trees and Benzes
They say you got to fall to have it all
Now, we don’t want two kids and a wife
I don’t want a job, I just want a life
Sometimes the underdogs rise
And the mighty fall (And the mighty will fall!)…
This ain’t the same summer song that you used to know
‘Cause Jack left Diane thirty years ago
The world is spinning too fast for you and me
So, tell me, whatever happened to the American Dream?
I know a girl, I met her last night
She was fresh off the plane
She whispered in my ear
“Baby, come here, I’ll do anything to make a name”
Honey, take my hand, follow me, ’cause
I don’t want to hurt you, but he does
I just want to give you some real advice (listen, baby)
Never take candy from a stranger
And keep your eyes open for danger
‘Cause this right here is a twisted paradise
This ain’t the same summer song that you used to know
‘Cause Jack left Diane thirty years ago
The world is spinning too fast for you and me
So, tell me, whatever happened to the American Dream?
This ain’t the same summer song that you used to know
So, baby, let’s live and die before we’re getting old
You know that nothing is the way it used to be
So, tell me, whatever happened to the American Dream?
Na na na, na na na na, na na na na na na
Na na na, na na na na, na na na na na na
Na na na, na na na na, na na na na na na
We were born to run
Cali, here we come
We gettin’ out of here, baby…
Let’s get out of here (oh whoa)
This ain’t the same summer song that you used to know
‘Cause Jack left Diane thirty years ago
The world is spinning too fast for you and me
So, tell me, whatever happened to the American Dream?
This ain’t the same summer song that you used to know
So baby, let’s live and die before we’re getting old
You know that nothing is the way it used to be
So, tell me, whatever happened to the American Dream?
Na na na, na na na na, na na na na na na
Na na na, na na na na, na na na na na na, oh…
