Track Name: Average American
The King is dead, long live the king
But when we think of him we sing
Witch doctor shake rattle and roll
But isolation took it's toll

Chorus:
Connect the dots that you see in the night sky
So when you see your name in lights then you'll know why
And when you do it make it look like you don't try
And then they'll say "HEY! That ain't no average american."

They're gone, they're gone they won't come back,
And for those souls you're dressed in black.
And in your head you're doing time.
You walked the line, you walked the line.

To connect the dots that you see in the night sky...

Whoa. Whoa-oh-oh. Why can't I be like that?

The Shaman walks between two worlds and draws the line.
He draws the line.
To entertain, confuse control and re-define the normal side.

To connect the dots that you see in the night sky.
So when you see your name in lights then you'll know why.
And when you do it make it look like you don't try.
And then they'll say, "Hey!" that ain't no average american.

There is no average american.
