Surface Lyrics


by Passing Strange Cast. From Passing Strange


NARRATOR:
And then the billy clubs stopped swinging,
And the police held their breath...

Mr. VENUS:
What's inside is just a lie.

NARRATOR:
Molotov cocktails cops could handle,
But performance art scared them to death.

Mr. VENUS:
What's inside is just a lie.

NARRATOR:
And then the frontline of the uprising became a gilded stage.

Mr. VENUS:
What's inside is just a lie.
There's only surface.

NARRATOR:
Welcome to Mr. Venus' Riot Carabet!

Mr. VENUS:
What's inside is just a lie.
What's inside is just a lie.
What's inside is just a lie.
What's inside is just a lie...

Ideas are dependable, there's a new one every week.
Emotions are expendable because they aren't unique.

Ideas are dependable, there's a new one every week.
Emotions are expendable because they aren't unique.

Culture is cosmetic!!!
Culture is cosmetic!!!
Culture is cosmetic!!!
Culture is cosmetic!!!

What's inside is just a lie.
What's inside is just a lie.
What's inside is just a lie.
WHAT'S INSIDE IS JUST A LIE!!!

NARRATOR:
Now, say your songs sounded like this:

YOUTH:
Don't try to hide...
The truth inside...

NARRATOR:
And then you heard this:

MR. VENUS:
WHAT'S INSIDE IS JUST A LIE!!!

NARRATOR:
It would have to make some kinda impression on you, now wouldn't it?
Or in other words...
His song was ugly, cold and cracked,
But Venus had something our hero lacked:

YOUTH:
Courage to bleed...

NARRATOR:
Venus gave him...
SPEED!!!

OK, and I know this is gonna sound a little bit crazy, but according to the Nowhaus manifesto and I quote: 'What's inside
each and every one of us here in this room, what we mistakenly call our thoughts, our feelings, and our dreams, have actually
been put there by a system, therefore...'

MR. VENUS:
What's inside is just a lie...

NARRATOR:
Our minds have been invaded, conquered and occupied. Hence:

MR. VENUS:
What's inside is just a lie.

NARRATOR:
And like a catch refrain that gets trapped in your head...

MR. VENUS:
What's inside is just a lie.

NARRATOR:
Somebody else's desires get lodged in your brain...

MR. VENUS:
What's inside is just a lie.

NARRATOR:
And the only way to become your true self...

MR. VENUS:
What's inside?

YOUTH:
I'm starting to feel real...

NARRATOR:
You gotta create your true self.

MR. VENUS:
What's inside?

YOUTH:
I'm starting to feel real...

MR. VENUS:
What's inside?

NOWHAUSERS:
We wish to create an anti-bourgeois living community
That stands in opposition to capitalist society.

NARRATOR:
You can turn your life into a work of art.
You can turn your life into a work of art.
You can turn your life into a work of art.
You can turn your life into a work of art!

MR. VENUS:
What's inside?

YOUTH:
I'm starting to feel real. I'm starting to feel real. I'm starting to feel real. I'm starting to feel real. I'm starting to
feel real. I'm starting to feel real. I'm starting to feel real.

MR. VENUS:
What's inside is just a lie!!!!

YOUTH:
So the Real I've been searching for...
Is in the beauty of these burning streets.
It's the song I couldn't write yesterday.

MR. VENUS:
What's inside is just a lie!!!!

YOUTH:
Till May Day gave me courage to bleed...

DESI:
Only love is real, yeah...

YOUTH:
I'll write a song called revolution.

MR. VENUS:
What's inside is just a lie!!!...

YOUTH:
Cuz May Day gave me the courage to bleed.

DESI:
Only love is real, yeah...

YOUTH:
And now I'm ready.

BAND/ALL:
YEAH!

YOUTH:
And now I'm ready.

BAND/ALL:
YEAH!

YOUTH:
And now I'm ready.

BAND/ALL:
YEAH!

BAND/ALL/YOUTH:

YOUTH:
And now I'm ready.

BAND/ALL:

YOUTH:
And now I'm ready.

BAND/ALL:

YOUTH:
And now I'm ready.

BAND/ALL:

YOUTH:
To

BAND/ALL/YOUTH:

YOUTH:
And now I'm ready.

BAND/ALL:

YOUTH:
And now I'm ready.

BAND/ALL:

YOUTH:
And now I'm ready.

BAND/ALL:
YEAH!

YOUTH:
To

BAND/ALL/YOUTH:
