Fake Jake and Fake Smiles

Fake Jake
Many years ago
I proclaimed to the world

I was Jake
And I was not a fake

But I was the real deal
But over the years

I too have become fake
And yes Jake
Is also nothing but a fake.

Fake Smiles

The old soul classic
Smiling faces got it right
“Smiling faces sometimes
Pretend to be your friend

Smiling faces show no traces
Of the evil that lurks within (can you dig it?)

Smiling faces, smiling faces, sometimes
They don’t tell the truth

Smiling faces, smiling faces tell lies and I got proof
Oh, oh, yeah

Let me tell you
The truth is in the eyes ’cause the eyes don’t lie, amen

Remember, a smile is just a frown turned upside down my friend
So, hear me when I’m saying

Smiling faces, smiling faces, sometimes, yeah
They don’t tell the truth

Smiling faces, smiling faces tell lies and I got proof
(Beware) beware of the handshake

That hides the snake (can you dig it, can you dig it?)
I’m a-tellin’ you beware of the pat on the back
It just might hold you back

Jealousy, (jealousy) misery (misery) envy (envy)
I…”

Boy did the singer get it right
In this world of fake things

Where the market rules us all
The art of the fake smile
Has been perfected

They say that many people
Have mastered the art of the fake smile

Where you smile
and pretend to like someone

your victim
does not suspect

that the smile
is because you are thinking
of stabbing them in the back

oh yes in a world of fake people
beware, beware of smiling faces.
