lyrics

We’re through with knockin’ ‘round this one-horse town
When you’ve been around the block as many times as we
It’s a struggle to maintain your sanity

It’s true, we never really made a splash
An A&R man flashed some cash
The album never hit the street
But we play it to our friends and family

While others try to kick against the gloom
By getting cosmic in a darkened room
We’re moving on to find a new frontier
We ain’t got no business bein’ here

We’re sick and tired of following the pack
So we’re veering from the beaten track
I swear the truth has never been so clear
We ain’t got no business being here

And now, because he never bet the ranch
They’ll never recoup that advance
How lovely it would be
If we used it to escape this industry

So we’re out of here, we’re free at last
From the shackles of our past
We lost the battle but we won the war
And the slaves will own the masters evermore

While others try to kick against the gloom
By getting cosmic in a darkened room
We’re moving on to find a new frontier
We ain’t got no business bein’ here

Ain’t nobody gonna shed a tear
As the curtain falls on our career
And obscurity looms ever near
We ain’t got no business being here
