I bought your record, and I fell crestfallen
By the borrowed blisters of an old time zone
'Cause I remember when the back beat wasn't programmed in
and heroes were still human and messed up

[Chorus]
And they rocked on real drums
And they rocked on real drums
don't let this carry on, dear son
Real drums forever...

I guess I can't say much, 'cause you got me dancin'
But if this ain't new disco, it sure as hell comes close
And I'll smile if you win, but now you've got me wondering
if this means you're inspired or washed up

[Chorus]

    Looking at the lyrics doesn't really do much. But hear the song and it'll rock your socks off.

    this is another song about UFB's beloved metal changing and selling out...saying their rock heros were regular people who used real instruments, instead of over-producing and creating music on a machine, and caring more about image than integrity. this is a running theme on both albums, if you pay attention.

    This song always reminded me of a band that used to rock Holland for a long time, but in the wake of a changing musical landscape decided to jump on what they see as the bandwagon because that's how they got famous the first time. You know you've seen it. Reminds me of the song "Box Set" by Barenaked Ladies.
