about

Upside Down, written by Incognito Cartel's Tom Templeman and his co-writer Maureen Croissant-Prairie, touches on the underbelly of the music business. Both writers draw from their early experiences in music, and some of the unsavory characters that young and often vulnerable musicians must be wary of. "Everybody's your friend when you're up and coming," says Tom. "You cannot be dazzled by the flash, and you must always keep your head on straight or you can find yourself in a bad situation. Music is a great world, but like anywhere else, you have to watch your back and be wary of who you trust."

lyrics

FINGERS TO THE BONE, TRY TO GET THINGS OFF THE GROUND
TUNE AND TOUR AND PLAY WORKING FOR THAT PERFECT SOUND
BUILDING THE CROWDS, MAKING IT PAY
CERTAIN THAT THE BIG TIME IS JUST A GIG AWAY

(Chorus)
IT’S A CRAZY LIFE
IN A WORLD UPSIDE DOWN
WHERE WRONG IS RIGHT
AND A SQUARE IS REALLY ROUND
A FRIEND CAN BE WORSE THAN A STRANGER
AND A SMILE CAN REALLY MEAN DANGER
IN A WORLD UPSIDE DOWN

HE REEKS OF FLASH AND CASH AND DRIVES A FOREIGN CAR
SIGN YOUR SOUL AWAY AND HE’LL PROMISE YOU THE STARS
A BABE IN THE WOODS, A MOTH TO THE FLAME
LURED BY PROMISE OF FORTUNE AND FAME

(Chorus)
IT’S A CRAZY LIFE
IN A WORLD UPSIDE DOWN
WHERE WRONG IS RIGHT
AND A SQUARE IS REALLY ROUND
A FRIEND CAN BE WORSE THAN A STRANGER
AND A SMILE CAN REALLY MEAN DANGER
IN A WORLD UPSIDE DOWN

(Bridge)
GET BACK TO THE WALL, STAY IN YOUR LANE
DON’T FALL FOR HIS LINES, IT’S ONLY A GAME

(Chorus)
IT’S A CRAZY LIFE
IN A WORLD UPSIDE DOWN
WHERE WRONG IS RIGHT
AND A SQUARE IS REALLY ROUND
A FRIEND CAN BE WORSE THAN A STRANGER
AND A SMILE CAN REALLY MEAN DANGER
IN A WORLD UPSIDE DOWN
