Track Name: Fake Out
I don't really know
what you want from me.
Who you really are
isn't clear to see.
People know you as
a liar and a cheat;
is that all that you
really want to be?
You think you know for sure
I'm just another fool
I don't know what you heard
I will not be your tool
We know just how it goes
I got you figured out
I know, I know, I know
It's just a fake out.

I know, I know, I know
It's just another trick.
You think, you guess, I'm sure,
call me a cynic.
You know I've seen your show
and what it's all about.
And so, I know, I know,
It's just a fake out.
Track Name: Icons
We packed our bags;
we headed for the west, saying
"Don't look back;
don't even stop to rest."
We looked for icons;
we only found cliches.
Symbols of the past
But nothing for today.

I swore and I swore:
"Everything will be okay.
What we're looking for
Is just beyond the way."
You couldn't stay;
The future was much too close.
You're moving on;
you won't become a ghost.

You're jumping ship;
you can't afford to rest.
You gotta deal with that
Heavy feeling in your chest.
You looked for an icon,
you just found a cliche.
I just didn't know
What had become of me.
Track Name: Caffeine
Just another day;
I'm tired, I'm groggy.
Chase the fog away
And give me some energy.
Gonna be okay,
Just get me some coffee.
There's no other way
To save me, I guarantee.

I just got to have some caffeine.
