The strength of your dreamin
Prevents you from reason
The American dream
Only makes sense if you're sleepin

from Lowkey – OBAMA NATION Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

To all non Americans who want to go to America chasing the American dream, listen—– AMERICA DREAM IS ONLY A DREAM! Your dream prevents you from opening your eyes and seeing the reality and the reality is that America … sucks.

He may have got the inspiration for these lines from the following George Carlin quote:

That’s why they call it the American Dream, because you have to be asleep to believe it.
