"The Oasis" as written by and H. Jones....
The oasis is dry,
Brother open up your eyes and look aroud.
And look around.

The oasis is bland,
And the water turns to sand
I can't choke it down
I can't choke it down.

Now tell me,
what have you done?
Tell me you pissed off everyone.

So you threw up at the bar,
That's ok they know who you are.
Man, you're a star.
You're such a star

But don't let it feed your head,
Cause the music scene is dead
Right where you are.
Right where you are.

So tell me,
What have you done?
Tell me you pissed off everyone.

The oasis is dry,
Brother open up your eyes and look around.
For a brand new sound.

The oasis is bland,
Brother start another band.
Next time around,
That wont drag you down.

    General CommentI'm pretty sure that it's about a guy who used to be in a band, and he lost his creativity(the oasis), and now he's washed up, throwing up at bars.

    I think the "now tell me what have you done" is about him trying to make music again, but it's really terrible and everyone hates him for it.

    Maybe the "music scene is dead" is an excuse to why he got so bad, and also the "start another band that won't drag you down" is saying he could have been much better on his own without other people telling him what to do.

    cute song, whatever its about
