"Industry" as written by and Jonathan Michael Mclaughlin....
My debut is coming soon
You already know what I'm gonna do
You got my time on the dotted line
But you show up invited and before I sign
And someone say I'm not making mistakes
But please don't be fake

My debut comes today
And my feelings have all run away
With the man that I am but understand
Hey, if I don't keep going it'll just go to show
That I've been beat by an industry I've never seen

This is me on my knees
Singing take it all from me, take it all
Speak to my needs, my needs
Oh, and take it all, oh, just take it all, this is me

So the crowd gets quiet, I start to play
And I think they're buying what I got to say
But to my defiance the music fades
And we all sit silent and I crawl back inside
Because it wasn't supposed to go this bad

This is me on my knees
Singing take it all from me, take it all
Speak to my needs, my needs
Oh, and take it all, oh, just take it all, this is me

And when you grow silent I start to fall
And when you grow silent I start to fall
And when you grow silent I start to fall
When you grow silent I

And when you grow silent I start to fall
And when you grow silent I start to fall
And when you grow silent I start to fall
And when you grow silent, when you grow silent

This is me on my knees
Singing take it all from me, take it all
Speak to my needs, my needs
And take it all, oh, just take it all

This is me on my knees
Singing take it all from me, take it all
And speak to my needs, my needs
And take it all, yeah

    General CommentExactly. Jon McLaughlin is EVERYTHING I listen for in a great, feel-good, I-can-totally-relate artist, and this song is just another example of how crazy it is that he's not HUGE!!
    I'm going to enjoy it now, though, because I know someday he's going to be all over the radio, and I'll be the one telling everyone that it's about time!

    This is me on my knees
    Singing take it all from me
    Take it all
    Speak to my needs
    My needs yeah
    And take it all
    Oh just take it all
    This is me


    yes. this is Jon McLaughlin.
