    Lyrics

    Songs, when the truth, are all dedicated to you
    And this invisible world I choose to live in
    And if you believe that then now I understand
    Why words mean so much to you
    They'll never be about you

    Maybe you're young without youth
    Or maybe you're old without knowing anything's true
    I think you're young without youth

    Then you contract the American Dream
    You never look up once
    And you've contracted American Dreams
    I require you to stop and look up

    Sing a song about myself
    Keep singing a song about myself
    Not some invisible world

    Constantly searching to find something new
    But what will you find when you think that nothing's true?
    Maybe it's that nothing is new
    So you let me hear songs that were written all about you
    The good songs weren't written for you
    They'll never be about you

    Then you contract the American Dream
    You never look up once
    You've contracted American Dreams
    You never look up once, so dont look up

    Sing a song about myself
    Keep singing a song about myself
    Not some invisible world

    And I won't tell you what this means
    'Cause you already know
    And I won't tell you what this means
    'Cause you already know

    So sing a song about myself
    Keep singing a song about myself
    Not some invisible world

    You came along and found the weak spot
    That you've always wanted
    Let yourself be everything
    That you've always wanted
    It doesn't have to be so decided
    As you've always wanted
    No need for explanations
    You've always wanted

    And you'll find what you'll find
    When you find there's nothing
    And you'll find what you'll find
    When you find there's nothing
