Cool Congress, Faker, Lyrics, Video

Cool Congress “The Faker” Live at Lee’s Palace, Toronto 1991

 

The Faker

Oh in the silent city

Under the silent rain

Your soft breath’s memory

Just isn’t the same

 

Something woke me – woke me

Up out of the night

Something so much louder than

The cross of neon light

 

Chorus:

I don’t speak no evil

Hear no evil

See no evil at all

 

You see me as a faker

Choking on a theory

You tell me Chad we need you

You’re the kind of man who’s right

 

Not good or bad or godly

And you understand our ways

Not criminal, saint or naïve

And you understand our ways

 

Chorus:

I don’t speak no evil

Hear no evil

See no evil at all

 

(Solo)

 

Chorus:

I don’t speak no evil

Hear no evil

See no evil at all

 

You were coming apart again

So I joined you like a pin

You move too fast and that’s no good

And you only stop at red lights

 

You lie still and I just live above

You and the city like the night

I move fast but I’m getting somewhere

Just me and the speed of light

 

Chorus:

I don’t speak no evil

Hear no evil

See no evil at all

I don’t speak no evil

Hear no evil

See no evil at all
