faster and louder lyrics – peter furler

“faster and louder”

chill out, you’ve earned a break
time to start another page
artists of a certain age
writing ballads, eating salads

there must be something more
who we getting mellow for?
shake me if i start to snore
is this why we fought a war?

so long, my soul longs
fast songs, joyful, joyful
i wanna make some noise
wanna cause a stir, faster and louder

chill out, turn up your nose
mellow tracks will decompose
cut ’em slow, candles lit
if you’re ho*rs*, whisper it

‘stead of singing sedatives
cut ’em like a set o’ shivs
sharp and pointed to the soul
this is why we rock and roll

so long, my soul longs
fast songs, joyful, joyful
i wanna make some noise
wanna cause a stir, faster and louder

we know what we know
we won’t take it slowly
if you’ve been mellowed out
i know the cure, faster and louder
faster and louder

slower and softer it goes
only your lazy boy knows
it sneaks up behind you like sin
the devil he just wants you chilling

so long, my soul longs
fast songs, joyful, joyful
i wanna make some noise
wanna cause a stir, faster and louder

we know what we know
we won’t take it slowly
kids, let me hear you scream
if you concur, faster and louder
faster and louder, faster and louder
