"Fake Sound Of Progress" as written by and Michael Richard/watkins Lewis....
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)

    General Commentim a big fan of lost prophets, the video for this song is kewl. acouple years ago when shinobi vs. dragon ninja came out i got into them. but its really about not givin in. in the video hes blowin off some executive A-holes and pretty much sayin screw u we'll go our own way and never change and we'll make it without ya.
