Failure - Counterfeit Sky Lyrics

It's no mistake
It's all your fault
What holds you down
Just find your ghost

One more sunlight breaks you down
The counterfeit sky sells you out
After all the change, nothing's changed
Wake up laughing and don't know who you are

It's not a switch
Or a reflex
In all the ways
You sink your guest

One more sunlight breaks you down
The counterfeit sky sells you out
After all the change, nothing's changed
Wake up laughing (Wake up laughing)

Are you mine all the time?
When you dream (When you dream)

One more sunlight breaks you down
The counterfeit sky sells you out
After all the change, nothing's changed
Wake up laughing and don't know who you are (Who you are?)

Are you mine? (Who you are?)

One more sunlight breaks you down (Breaks you down)
The counterfeit sky sells you out (Sells you out)
After all the change, nothing's changed
Nothing's changed

Failure Counterfeit Sky Comments
  1. Andrew Evitts

    What a Fantastic Planet


    This band really deserves more.

  3. Matt Snow

    Whenever I have a bad moment my metal jukebox cues Greg's opening guitar riff.

  4. Barry Norgaard

    Please don't hate me for saying so but the chorus sounds like Katy Perry's song, Extraterrestrial. I love this song but just sharing an observation!

  5. Joseph Slattery

    Ken and Shepard, do you think he played ME2?

  6. martinberg78

    Really sad how underrated Failure is. Here is an excellent example of how the government chooses what you lisen to.

  7. Traine Lavalais

    Classic Failure music

  8. eliksc

    Trying to figure the video out..
    Maybe generations failing over and over due to following their failing elder's beliefs? Or newer generations not grasping their elder's wisdom? Or both?
    Still do not know if that is Failure's message or the video creator's..?


    4 damn years asking me the same question mate ;). Failure at his finest.

  9. Rich Jones

    awesome song - listened to it about 10 times in a row...

  10. Cynic Snacks

    I’m actually disgusted by how underrated this band are.

  11. Eliot Fish Music

    Thank you for existing

  12. msfasa

    Why does it say the artist is the Red Hot Chili Peppers in the details?? YouTube get it together!

  13. jompe84

    The astronaut is from the cover of the 1996 album.
    The man who's planting seeds represents god.
    The seed represents life, but god don't want the astronaut to plant it, because he has
    seen mankind erase life on other planets. So places him in an eternal loop.

    Traine Lavalais

    Truthfully spoken. It is like saying no problems are solved on Earth because man is the cause.

    Bodie Dutch

    @Jacob Irby ditto kiddo

    Lance Shelton

    Or God slapping his hand with the seeds represents the unknown or chaos with life that rises from that rapid change.

    Donald Tuck

    I'd say it's more on the cycle of things like the yugas of time and the hitting of the seeds is braking the wheel of time creating a real change

    David Sturgeon

    I don't think so. The old man is the same guy, just old. He smacks the seeds out his own hands. It means "live". Kind of like the saying "if I could go back in time, I'd smack myself". The point I think is to live your life and not to stick to the norm of your everyday life. You're going to look back at your life in the future one day and hopefully you don't want to smack yourself. Maybe..maybe almost?

  14. Колосов Семен

    Настоящее произведение искусства. По всем параметрам.
