The Fake Sound Of Progress Lyrics

Somebody told me that I'd always have to bow,
If that was true I would have fallen apart by now,
The more you think, the less you act their way,
So can you hear this, the fake sound of progress?

Never reason with a fool, but is that unkind,
Looks like I've lost my mind once again,
I know it all sounds so contrived, but it's got to me,
You know I've got to be more than this,

Don't frown, don't scorn, cause I walk a different street to you,
You look so worn, I bet that life has got you blown,
But it will never get to me,

Somebody told me that I'd always have to bow,
If that was true I would have fallen apart by now,
The more you think, the less you act their way,
So can you hear this, the fake sound of progress?

And I feel the way you hold, hold me back from this,
Chances that I've missed, now they're gone,
Apathy is all I sense, the feeling's too intense,
Sitting on the fence, can't decide,

Don't frown, don't scorn, cause I walk a different street to you,
You look so worn, I bet that life has got you blown,
But it will never get to me,

Somebody told me that I'd always have to bow,
If that was true I would have fallen apart by now,
The more you think, the less you act their way,
So can you hear this, the fake sound of progress?

All these words that I can't afford,
Never feel another day
All these thoughts that I need more, make me take away
Tell me now, can you hear the sound
Of all these people falling down
growing back into the ground, make me smile again...
Raaaaaah, swing it!

Da da da, da da da da-da (it sounds like)
Da-da da da, da da da da-da (it sounds like)
Da da da, da da da da-da (it sounds like)
Da-da da da, da da da da-da (it, sounds, like, this!)

All these words that I can't afford,
Never feel another day
All these thoughts that I need more, make me take away,
All these words that I can't afford,
Never feel another day, make me take away,

Somebody told me that I'd always have to bow,
If that was true I would have fallen apart by now,
The more you think, the less you act their way,
So can you hear this, the fake sound of progress?

Make me smile again (the fake sound of progress)
Make me smile again, yeah (the fake sound of progress)
Make me smile again (the fake sound)
Of progress.
