Great lyrics by stellarartwars!
Had to go for a simple punk-rock tune… A bit too noisy and muddy though. Just couldn’t clean it up ;(

(Just discovered that flash play makes mix louder and bassier, but streaming plays it in it’s original form… I hope it’s not only by me! Anyway, in this case streaming works much better!)


If I was a doctor
And cured the sick for free
Would the other medics
Launch a lawsuit against me?
If I fed the starving
Would you call the cops?
Accuse me of stealing trade
From what they couldn’t afford
To buy in your shops
This is what they call music today
It’s a 9 to 5 where the desperate folk
Scrabble over peanuts pay
It’s a hard knock life
When you finally discover
That the faceless men in suits
Fight musicians one against the other
If I try to help
Would you kick me in the teeth?
I ain’t hurting you
So why the hell have you got beef?
I’ve a budget fifty times
As small as you
Yet a little competition
Seems to leave you sad and blue
I don’t want no fancy vids
Cosmetic sales to little kids
I’m not in this game for pay
I just wanna sing and play!
