"Genuine Imitation Life" as written by and Jake Holmes....
chameleons changing colors
while a crocodile cries
people rubbing elbows
but never touching eyes
taking of their masks
revealing
still another guise
genuine
imitation life

people buying happiness
and manufactured fun
everybody doing
everybody done
people count on people
who can only count to one
genuine
imitation life

all the pretty clouds
are a lovely shade of black
you find the right direction
someone tears up all the track
people worship crosses
fingers crossed behind their back
genuine
imitation life

old friends get together
but it's solitaire they play
everybody's rainbows
done in different shades of gray
its a lovely place to visit
but I wouldn't want to stay
genuine
imitation life

in a genuine
imitation life
