Last Tuesday I sat across from another stupid record lable boss
He told me I made the notes a bit too perfect
Should try to be more like the Strokes.
Made me so depressed that now I can't get out of bed,
He wouldn't know an artist if I kicked him in the head.
I saw the brass ring and I'm never ever gettin' it,
I realized this afternoon while driving to Connecticut.

West Hartford is pretty far
From Philadlephia...
About five hours in the car!
It gave me time to think about my life
And now I have no doubt
Unless I get a nipple ring unless I shave my head
I better call a doctor to pronounce my career dead
I saw the brass the brass ring
I'm never, ever gettin' it,
I realized this afternoon while driving to Connecticut.

I've read that there was a time when there were record execs
Who would love to hear a well constructed melody.
That kind of person would do well with me,
But now it seems they only want you if you're angry
And you play two chords and shout out some obscenity
And since I don't do that the hell with me.
Ohhhhh!! La la la la la la la!!!

They're supposed to be in or they can't understand
How a song played on my guitar would sound right by a band.
They'd really like to sign me, but they're sorry, they're not able
Because Howie Day did not sell enough units for the label!
And just because my face is something less than photographic
Then I don't have 14 year old girls in my demographic
I could go on and on with their pathetic little excuses
I'd have to drive all the way to Massachusetts!
Well I saw the brass ring and I'm never, ever gettin' there
Yeah, I saw the brass ring and I'm never, ever gettin' there
Yeah I saw the brass ring
And I'm never, ever, never, never, ever, never, ever, never, never, ever...
I saw the brass ring and I'm never, ever gettin' there
I realized this afternoon while driving to Connecticut.
