Tom Smith Fake It Better, Granito This song contains language that may be objectionable to some listeners and may not be suitable for radio broadcast.

Last night, at a comic con, as I met all my fans,
There was a picture I thought I drew, that was signed by another man.
I kept my cool, I asked this fool why my work was on his shelf.
I heard him whine, "These pics are mine, I traced every one myself."

Fake it better, Granito,
Or trace it really fine,
Say it's your original -
Shame it looks just like mine.

Fake it better, Granito,
'Cause plagiarism's crass,
Here's a copy for my lawyer,
Gonna sue your ass.

You've been many things, but most of all a gladhanding suckup jerk.
It's lines like this I feel have been copied from all my work.
Was I wrong? I stared so long and hard at your other prints,
All work at your display has been copied from all my friends.

So fake it better, Granito
To get your hit of fame,
Looks just like Ty Templeton,
But it's signed with your name.

Fake it better, Granito
And buff your resume,
Pretending you're an artist -
Well, it ends today.

When a fan loves an artist, it's hard to understand
Why he wouldn't like a ripoff being claimed by another man.
We never really noticed you, but now you're all we're seeing,
It just so happens Mark Waid is here, and he wants to rip out your spleen.

So fake it better, Granito,
It's just a piece of shit,
Get out of our Comic Con,
And don't let the door hit.

Fake it better, Granito,
'Cause plagiarism's crass,
Here's a copy for my lawyer -
Gonna sue your ass.
