Why Fake It?

The first recording of this song was made in Mark's Recording Studio in Copenhagen in May or June 1999. Freya didn't like the result, so the band rerecorded it in Rummet during the cmt-sessions. At that time they had performed the song so intensely that they were sick and tired of it. That's why it was not included on Chasing My Tale. Below you'll find Freya's original lyrics, which she wrote down exclusively for this site. Copyright by Freya Christine Clausen, 1999. (Used with permission).

Why pretend smiling? Why pretend laughing?
Why pretend? Why pretend? Why pretend?
Why fake interest? Why fake modesty?
Why fake it? Why fake it? Why fake it?
There's a wolf in my forest tonight
There's a rotten tooth in my Colgate smile
There's a black cloud in my summer sky
There's a storm coming up...

Why pretend caring? Why not be arrogant?
Why pretend? Why pretend? Why pretend?
Why make impressions? Why be kissing butts?
Why fake it? Why fake it? Why fake it?

There's a wolf in my forest tonight
There's a rotten tooth in my Colgate smile
There's a black cloud in my summer sky
There's a storm coming up...

Accuse me - I'll confess
Abuse me - I'll undress
You confuse me - I'm in distress
Excuse me - I'm a mess...

There's a wolf...... Etc.
