In my youth it seemed to be that the truth was far from me so I'd play my records, tapes and reels
Those songs were powerful and those words could touch your soul but it's now all copied, pasted beats
And there might be telephones that can teach you all you know but it seems like rock and roll is dead

In my life I need to know there's a safe shelter from the contrived, bland, mass produced machine
It's not just a fashion muse with no heart, I'm begging you to escape with all of what this means
And there might be digital that can fix what's terrible but it feels like rock and roll is dead

In my world I need a door to a place that I can rest my soul but this room's been tainted, stripped and cleaned
It's no good what they sell to you and no truth ever makes the news and it's real to fake it on the screen
But they look you in the eye as they birth the latest lie and they know you're falling now for this
And you don't know any more cause they took it nice and slow and it's all cause rock and roll is dead


from The Trade In Lunacy, released April 4, 2016
