LYRICS

SO YOU SAY YOU'RE ON TO SOMETHING
AND YOU'D LIKE TO SEE IT THROUGH
BUT YOU'RE WORKED TO THE BONE
AND THERE'S ONLY SO MUCH YOU CAN DO
AND YOU THINK IT'S ALL FOR NOTHING
IF YOU GOT NO CAST AND CREW
AND YOU'RE MAD AT YOURSELF
CUZ THERE'S ONLY SO MUCH YOU CAN DO

YOU NEED TIME TO RELEASE
YOU NEED MORE SKINNY JEANS
YOU NEED MESSAGE MACHINES
YOU NEED INTERNET SCHEMES
BUT IT'S NEVER AS MUCH AS IT SEEMS

PLAY FOR NEXT TO NOTHING
IN A NEXT TO EMPTY ROOM
SO YOU PEDDLE YOUR SWAG CUZ THERE'S
NEVER ENOUGH COMING THROUGH
AND YOU STICK IT OUT FOR ONE THING
THAT YOU'D LIKE TO SEE COME TRUE
YOU CAN GO QUIT YOUR JOB CUZ YOU'VE
COVERED THE RENT AND THE FOOD

YOU NEED SOME KINDA PLAN
YOU NEED WORK ON THE VAN
YOU NEED MERCH FOR THE STAND
YOU NEED HELP WITH YOUR BRAND
AND IT'S MORE THAN A FELLA CAN STAND

AIN'T LOOKING FOR A MONEY TREE
OR NO HOUSEHOLD NAME WITH THE BOURGEOISIE
I JUST HOPE THAT WE CAN HACK IT WITH THE NEXT LP
AND LOOK STUPID TO A LESSER DEGREE

SO YOU SAY YOU'RE ON TO SOMETHING
BUT IT'S LIKELY THAT YOU'RE SCREWED
CUZ THE TUNES AREN'T ENOUGH
AND THERE'S ONLY SO MUCH YOU CAN DO
AND YOU THINK IT'S ALL FOR NOTHING
AND IT'S TIME YOU MIGHT BE THROUGH
YOU MIGHT GIVE UP THE DREAM
CUZ THERE'S ONLY SO MUCH YOU CAN DO
