I think they're losing their momentum every day
They're trying 3% percent too hard
Can't you see the look there on his face?
I think they'll do okay for now
And in a year throw in the towel
But they're losing their momentum every day

They won't be doing this much longer without pay
And when it all comes crashing down I can't wait to see the day
We can say we told 'em so
They're just a little bit too old
And they can head home head in hand like a disgrace

Do I regret I even wasted the breath it took to sing?
Do I regret I ever admitted to a little and bled it all out on the page?
Do we regret they're out there waiting?
For someone honest to take the stage?
Will they want their ten bucks back
or leave knowing that this means more than anyone could pay?
It's all just as well
The ones that can tell
Know we're here to play

    General CommentThe verses are written from their critics' perspective, the whole questioning of their dedication. The chorus is this super-intense sincerity and love for what they do.

    General CommentPretty obvious it's about them trying to prove themselves and fight off the critics. Awesome song.

    General CommentIt starts out from the perspective of the music critics, as they take notes on the every flaw in the musician. Then is shows all the worries musicians endure before shows through their eyes. Great Song ;)
