fake world, nyc

from simulation of an artist by ieatpants



after writing this song, i was motivated/inspired to create an entire album dedicated to philip k. dick (the empire never ended, 2012)

fake world, nyc, is a direct correlation of the world that Decker (Do Androids Dream of Electric Sleep?) lives in.

it's my life crossed with his in a confusing heap of belief, energy, faith, self-oppression, disappointment, and what constitutes "the real" and what difference does it all make?


in this life
that we make up
are you let down
do you give up

are you
let down by me
and this life
that we've made

this fake life
that someone made up
in their heads
and gave to us

we all try
to climb up
but they throw rocks
at our flesh

we all think
the same shit
we all dream
the nightmare

this fake world
on a movie screen
and we watch as
our lives break up

but one day
if we stand up
with a fake smile
we could wake up

the real world
is just too much
to take in
for all of us
