Somebody told me that I'd always have to bow
If that was true I would have fallen apart by now
The more you think, the less you act their way
So can you hear this, the fake sound of progress

Never reason with a fool, but is that unkind,
Looks like I've lost my mind once again
I know it all sounds so contrived, but it's got to me
You know I've got to be more than this
Don't frown, don't scorn, cause I walk a different street to you
You look so worn, I bet that life has has got you down
But it will never get to me

Somebody told me that I'd always have to bow
If that was true I would have fallen apart by now
The more you think, the less you act their way
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 they're gone
Apathy is all I sense, the feeling's too intense
Sitting on the fence, can't decide
Don't frown, don't scorn, cause I walk a different street to you
You look so worn, I bet that life has got you down
But it will never get to me

Somebody told me that I'd always have to bow
If that was true I would have fallen apart by now
The more you think, the less you act their way
So can you hear this, the fake sound of progress

All these words that I can't afford,
Never feel another day
All these times that 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, make me smile again...

Tell me now, Can you hear the sound?
Of records spinning round n round
But all in all it seems like the same old song
That I keep on singing, It sounds like....

(dah dah dah dah dah dah dah dah dah dah dah dah dah dah dah...)
Yea it sounds like, yea, yea, yea, it sounds like this

All these words that I can't afford, never feel another day,
All these times that I want more, make me take away
All these words that I can't afford, I'll never feel another day
It makes me take away

(away.... Away... The fake sound... The fake sound...)
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 way
So can you hear this, the fake sound of progress

(The fake sound of progress... The fake sound of progress... The fake sound of progress...)
Make me smile again
Make me smile again, yeah
Make me smile again
