American Zero

I get my money in American ways
Cause I’m all American
I get my way because I talk a big game
Eat me I’m American

She wants her money quick, in physical ways
Cause she’s all American
I think her talk is cheap until she gets paid
Kiss me I’m American

Don’t count me out
Don’t you count me out
I won’t be somebody’s hero
Don’t count me out
Don’t you count me out
We’re all American zeroes
I’m your zero
I got nothing but I love you
Isn’t that enough to fill you up?

She goes to parties for a drug that is new
Cause she’s all American
She’s barely breathing in her red white and blue
Classically American

I need a miracle to change up my mood
Cause I’m all American
I’m scared of pills and guns and cheap fast food
Kill me I’m American

Don’t count me out
Don’t you count me out
I won’t be somebody’s hero
Don’t count me out
Don’t you count me out
We’re all American zeroes
I’m your zero
I got nothing but I love you
Isn’t that enough to fill you up?

Gimme something to believe in
Do you have a reason
Why you never look me in the eye?
Gimme something to believe in
My body’s losin’ feelin’
My body’s losin’ feelin’
My body’s losin’ feelin’

I won’t be somebody’s hero
We’re all American, all American zeroes

Don’t count me out
Don’t you count me out
I won’t be somebody’s hero
Don’t count me out
Don’t you count me out
We’re all American zeroes
I’m your zero
I got nothing but I love you
Isn’t that enough to fill you up?
