Fake It

lyrics

you gotta fake it til you make it
gotta dip til you dive
shake it til you break it
no one gets out alive

from the cradle to the grave
from the grave to the pie in the sky
you gotta fake it till you make it
and make it till you work it out right...

dabble in depression and scoliosis
got a back that's bent and a head full of neurosis
still I stand up straight and tip my face upright
I'm holding on for dear 'cause this the only life

dark clouds rolling in trouble on my mind
high waters hiked up man I'm ready to ride
I can't shake the feeling this aint as bad as it gets
I'm holding on for dear because this the only breath

sometimes I'm up sometimes I'm down
this mean old world keep on spinning around
and round and round I'm dizzy from the scope of it all
aint it big and blue and wet and having a ball

huddle up before the show one two lets go
no time to get ready let the rock just roll
let's intuit the groove til everybody in the know
get up and get in it and go man go go go

Hi there. You can sign up for my mailing list here: eepurl.com/bcruFT

I post a song once a week on Tuesdays. If I've just finished a song I'll record a rough demo and put it up. Sometimes its live recordings or weird electro collages. I also make a video most weeks using public domain footage. Check it out!

Thanks for taking the time to check out my music!

Jon
