"All The New Poisons" as written by and William G Mc Shane Nichelos Colby....
I saw you laughin' at pictures in magazines,
starlings from way back when you were a kid
and like everyone did you worshipped them till the end
Then two albums later came short-haired invaders
and Flannel kicked Leather's ass
You cursed what you knew was once to be true
and tried to light Metal with gas
And the Poseurs are now laughing
as the Circle of Fads spins again
and now you dress like my old math teacher
Starling - I remember Metal Kings
Starling - Don't forget the Metal Kings
Hey, were you guessin' that this history lesson
would not have a chapter for me?
Yes it's true, I'm not terribly cool
but I don't have a plan to be
All the new Poisons just have different toys
and they all play their part perfectly
Albeit cooler, my Rockathon Ruler measures a small victory
Nothing's ever wrong that's real
And fakebooks can't show you how to feel
But it's over for me on the day my stomach's full
JADED!
And they'll say that we're not cool enough
when fashion has left us behind
And we'll just laugh and forget what year it is

    General Commentit sounds like this is about getting irritated at fads replacing what you held dear, or even the things you love turning into fads. it's saying the music that really matters and is well-made will always prevail, even if only in the hearts of fans. and that people who truly care about the music won't get upset when fad followers scoff them for hanging on to something older, because it won't matter to them.

    General CommentThe cool thing about The Ultimate Fakebook is that they think a.that they're still in highschool and b.it's 1986. That's what makes them so delightfully unpretentious compared to some of their peers. Whatever though. UFB rocks!!
