No Substance

Lyrics | Track Details

history doesn't make something right / consensus is not a
fact-based exercise / you're tied and bound to this self-
indulgent enterprise... / We call it America

a brush with a star, a token of love / a name in the sand,
enough is enough / a diet of air, a face on the net / a fish in
your palm, a television set

ONCE YOU CONVINCE YOURSELF / THE UNIVERSE FALLS
INTO PLACE / YOU'VE GOT YOUR IDEAS / AND YOUR POSSE
OF FRIENDS / YOU ALL MAKE UP RULES / AND THE FUN
NEVER ENDS

but still there's a problem that leaves you gasping for air / you
look for some meaning, blank smiles are all that's there / and
still water stales a soft summer breeze / you cling to your
hopes while you drop to your knees / There's no substance!


ONCE YOU CONVINCE YOURSELF / THE UNIVERSE FALLS
INTO PLACE / YOU'VE GOT YOUR IDEAS / AND YOUR POSSE
OF FRIENDS / YOU ALL MAKE UP RULES / AND THE FUN
NEVER ENDS

but still there's a problem that leaves you gasping for air / you
look for some meaning, blank smiles are all that's there / and still
water stales a soft summer breeze / you cling to your hopes
while you drop to your knees

There's no substance!
