about

Our "adulthood is depressing and lame" song.

lyrics

All I see are people who are doing what they’re told.
We haven’t found a meaning in the lives that we are sold.
In a race to grow up, building walls to keep us safe.
The rules we have to follow when we’re taught how to behave.

It’s a forgery.
They have sold me on a dream that I will never be.
It’s a forgery.

I can’t take the rhetoric from those with tired eyes.
Their vision of perfection covers them like a disguise.
I’m following a light that looks about to fizzle out.
Knowing that the darkness covers me like a blackout.

It’s a forgery.
They have sold me on a dream that I will never be.
It’s a forgery.

My finger on the pulse of it.
Watch the way they fall.
So deep they can’t escape it,
oh, at all.

The hardest part of all of this is that I’m now the guide.
I’ve been passed the torch and told to keep the flame alive.
But I refuse to give in, to reject my child heart.
Won’t trade success for happiness in a world so torn apart.

It’s a forgery.
They have sold me on a dream that I will never be.
It’s a forgery.
Many questions carry answers harder to believe.
It’s a forgery.
They have sold me on a dream that I will never be.
It’s a forgery.
