Fake

Fanfare
Instrumental (except the word "Fake" at the end)

 Everything Is Fake
Why should I try to love someone like you
Everything is fake (fake)
Everything is fake (fake)

Make no mistake
Just for your sake
I endure this ache
Something I just can't shake
Everything is fake
Everything is fake

Why should I believe in someone like you
Everything is fake
Everything is fake

 

Back Of My Mind
[rev. July 10, 2006]

If you think and think that it's easy for me
To see you in her arms then you're stupid I see
You're talking sweet things, I know what you said
It's the same thing you told me when we were lying in bed

In the back of my mind
I can hear it in the back of my mind
In the back of my mind
I hear your sweet talk in the back of my mind

I see you across the road, you're avoiding my stare
Once you loved me only and now I am not there
You're making love moves, I know how it's done
And I really thought that I was the only one

In the back of my mind
I can feel it in the back of my mind
In the back of my mind
I can feel your fingers in the back of my mind
In the back of my mind
It wasn't how I pictured in the back of my mind
In the back of my mind
Who invited her there in the back of my mind
In the back of my mind
We'll just make some candles in the back of my mind
In the back of my mind
The airplanes cost your models [2:44] in the back of my mind
In the back of my mind
Sucking only/all your [2:55] dreaming in the back of my mind
In the back of my mind
Corals sleep together [3:05] in the back of my mind
In the back of my mind
Morning comes I'll kill you in the back of my mind

 

I Cannot Feel You
[rev. July 10, 2006]

I cannot feel you
I cannot feel you
I should have held you
I should have felt you
I know

In your presence I feel small
I don't feel I'm there at all
Just a picture on the wall
Tiny boat sinks in the sea
Just the way you sunk in me
Maybe then one day you'll see
That I am not the one you should have ended

You're not the only one

In the morning I'm alone
Empty in a loading zone
In the traffic slowly drawn
Threading through the raining tide
Feel God's love come falling down
Don't let me be the one to drown
Cause I am not the one, you should have ended

 

Air
Mostly Instrumental
("Feel air tonight" repeated occasionally)

 

F Outa Fake
[rev. July 10, 2006]

You're not so real and this is not Dada
(Da-da da da da da)
Your feet in New York, your head is enormous
(Huh-huh huh huh huh huh)

Take the F out of Fake
And all that's left is the ake and I'm achin'
Baby you've been fakin'
Fake

Zip up your pants, I don't like your hairdo
(Do-do do do do do)
Your cover's been blown and I'm blown if it covers you
(Ooh-ooh ooh ooh ooh ohh)

Actin' like a fool with your banana
(Na-na na na na na)
I think that banana is in a coma
(Ma-ma ma ma ma ma)

Japanese tourist and a koala
(La-la la la la la)
You think me a pharoah, loved Frank Sinatra
(Tra-la la la la la)

(Da-da da da da, Da-da da da da, Da-da da da da da)
(Do-do do do do, Do-do do do do, Do-do do do do do)
(La-la la la la, La-la la la la, La-la la la la la)
(Ma-ma ma ma ma, Ma-ma ma ma ma, Ma-ma ma ma ma ma)
(La-la la la la, La-la la la la, La-la la la la la)
(Tra-la la la la, Tra-la la la la, Tra-la la la la la)
(Da-da da da da, Da-da da da da, Da-da da da da da)
(Do-do do do do, Do-do do do do, Do-do do do do do)
(La-la la la la, La-la la la la, La-la la la la la)

 

Never Gone Away
Young sweet captain slides through a door
Off to his fake and foreign war
I take up the roses, water the grave
Light up my candles, try to be brave

As if he's never gone away
Never gone away
Never gone away
Never gone away
Never

Beautiful lady, hallowed thou art
With your ghostly baby and exposed heart
Protect us in storms and dangerous times
I think of him now and marvelous signs

 

Bring Me Down
Nothing's happening in this town
Why'd you wanna bring me down
You're the one who wears a frown
Why'd you wanna bring me down
Vicious lies are going 'round
Why'd you wanna bring me down
Something evil in your sound
Why'd you wanna bring me down
What's this letter that I found
Why'd you wanna bring me down
Drinking, drinking till you drown
Why'd you wanna bring me down
Three o'clock in your dressing gown
Why'd you wanna bring me down
Cause I smile I'm called a clown [second time through she sings,"...called a frow" and laughs]
Why'd you wanna bring me down
Smash my face into the ground
Why'd you wanna bring me down

(Why'd you wanna bring me down)
(Why'd you wanna bring me down)

 

Nympho
[rev. July 10, 2006]

Ivan is so terrible
Atilla is a hun
William wants to conquer me and
Ghengis can have fun

Cause I'm a nympho and I don't care

Richard took a photograph
Andre wrote a poem
Wolfgang played a symphony
I got something I can show 'em

Cause she's a nympho and she don't care

(Do-do do do do-do-do)
(La la la la la-la-la)

Lying in my bed one day
Looking at the sky
Dreamed I was an anchor

Cause I'm a nympho and I don't care

Driving in a motorcar doing 69
Head off for a bed and lie

[Names of people she's presumably had, with some other words thrown in]

 

Bride Of Jesus
[rev. July 10, 2006]

Come inside, I am the bride of Jesus
Come inside, I am the bride of Jesus

Come inside
Come inside

 

Desert Song
[rev. July 10, 2006]

The sun burns into my dream
Long, long ago he came to me
The great plan of his empire
A thousand naked angels watching in his eyes
A fire he saw ??? [1:08] to the dark
He gives me the true eternal word
Spoken by the masters of forgotten groups [1:27]
Tongues that whispered in the drink of caves
The old prophet remembers
The old prophet remembers
Remembers
Remembers

 

You Gonna Get It Some How
[rev. July 10, 2006]

If you're looking for something
You could find it here
If you'll only say the word
You will feel me near

(Gonna get it some how)

In my sleep, baby
Sleeping in the light
Dream of me, oh dream of me
Dream of me tonight

You're gonna get it some how
You're gonna get it some how

Talking to my daddy
Talking to the Lord
Asking for this one sweet favor
Delivered to your door

You're gonna get it some how
You're gonna get it some how

Falling deep in love with me
Look what it's done to you
Just take off your comment [3:04]
I know what to do

You're gonna get it some how
You're gonna get it some how

 

Fakin' It
I see you walkin' up the street and fakin' it (fakin' it)
The sleeping dog lies dead at your feet and you're wakin' it (wakin' it)

Come on baby, stop playing that trumpet
Why don't you take it out and dump it
And if you don't like it then lump it
Cause you're fakin' it (fakin' it)

One orgasm after the other and you're fakin' it (fakin' it)
You didn't want to cook your goose but now you're bakin' it

Your look gives me a thrill
But lately you've been fakin' it

I'm makin' money out of these shit holes, you're fakin' it
Served you by the hand that feeds you now you're shakin' it (shakin' it)

 

I'm Sorry Mrs. Hunt There's Been An Accident At The Plant
Instrumental

 

Thank You
Walk into fire like I knew that you would

You know the things you wanted
You did everything you wanted to
Now all the rooms are haunted
As it once was, so enchant me again

Walk into fire like I knew that you would
All I can say is thank you, thank you, thank you
You're just a lie if it makes me feel good
All I can say is thank you, thank you, thank you

Oh stop [1:09, 3:12]

I don't want nothing out of this
I just want to get out of this
You used to really love it
As you once were, so enchant me again

So really deep/Surreal deed [1:48]
In the crystal screen door [1:54] of heaven
Her love of fish [2:00]
Bright, unusual
