08. Faster and Louder

On Fire
by Peter Furler



 

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 hoarse / 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 // slower and softer it goes / only your lazyboy knows / it sneaks up behind you like sin / the devil, he just wants you chillin’ // 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

Behind the Song:
'If you wanted to pinpoint the one song on on fire that is most autobiographical, at least in terms of Peter’s music career, “Faster and Louder” is the song. Lyrically it’s the synopsis of his approach to music... “joyful, joyful, faster and louder.” All set, of course, within a quirky techno tune as memorable as anything you’d hear on Top 40 radio today. “If you’ve been mellowed out, I know the cure...” Peter sings. And this ‘Breakfast In Hell’ boy certainly knows.' - Melissa Riddle Chalos
