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

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

    Don't frown, don't scorn, cus I walk a different street to you
    You look so worn, I bet that life is has got you blown
    But it will never get to mee
    Somebody told me that I always have to bow

    If that was true I would have fallen apart by now
    The more you think, the less you act their ways
    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 their gone
    Apathy is all I sense, the feelings too intense
    Sitting on a fence and can't decide
    Don't frown, don't scorn, cus I walk a different street to you

    You look so worn, I bet that life is has got you blown
    No body will ever get to me
    Somebody told me that I always have to bow
    If that was true I would have fallen apart by now

    The more you think, the less you act their ways
    So can you hear this, the fake sound of progress

    All these words that I accounted for, never fear another day
    Always charged but 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 let me smile again...
    Smile

    Tell me now can you hear the sound, of the record spinning
    Round and round, for on and on it sounds like the same old
    Song that I keep singing, it sounds like

    Dah dah dah dah (yeahyeah sounds like) dah dah dah dah
    (all these words that I accounted for, I'll never fear another day)

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

    Yeah yeah yeah progress

    Make me smile again
    (the fake sound of progress)
