Freestyle (An American Dream)

by Marty Nelson

 

Well, I ain’t got a lot.

But I don’t need much.

Just a cut in the clouds

So I can reach out far enough to touch tomorrow.

 

Got my wheels from the revolution.

They say is gonna float the polar.

But ‘till the crumblin’ takes the shoreline

I’m gonna ride your smile as I hug these concrete rivers.

 

I’m goin’ freestyle.

Got some money in my pocket.

(Freestyle)

Got a taste for sweet things.

(Freestyle)

Ain’t nobody gonna stop it.

 ‘Cause every road in America leads to an American dream.

 

Oh, Oh. OH

Oh, Oh, OH.

Oh, Oh, Oh.

So come along with me.

 

Vault the fortress of permission

And trust the promise of your instinct.

Flee the safety of dark tunnels

For the light of the spark from your legacy generation.

 

Do you believe in the Angels?

Or does the voodoo rule your motion?

Either way, cast your eyes to the white line

And let the concrete current pull your body free.

 

I’m goin’ freestyle.

Got some money in my pocket.

(Freestyle)

Got a taste for sweet things.

(Freestyle)

Ain’t nobody gonna stop it.

‘Cause every road in America leads to an American dream.

 

Oh, Oh. OH

Oh, Oh, OH.

Oh, Oh, Oh.

Come along with me.

 

Carry me into the night.

Carry me into the night.

Carry me into the night.

Carry me into the night.

And I’ll be by your side.

Yes,  I’ll be by your side.

Yes,  I’ll be by your side.

 

Well I ain’t got a lot.

But I don’t need much

Just a cuss on my shoulder

So I can keep my mind off the roadside dark-side pleasures.

 

So with your hair flying straight back

Like a hurricane warning

Flash me those eyes and fuel my soul.

Though others swear I’m just a fool chasin’ Fool’s Gold.

 

I’m goin’ freestyle.

Got some money in my pocket.

(Freestyle)

Got a taste for sweet things.

(Freestyle)

Ain’t nobody gonna stop it.

‘Cause every road in America leads to an American dream.

 

Oh, Oh. OH

Oh, Oh, OH.

Oh, Oh, Oh.

Come along with me. (Let’s go)

 

Oh, Oh. OH

Oh, Oh, OH.

Oh, Oh, Oh.

Come along with me.
