3-40 (c) Treija 2008

I'm not Britney Spears, I'm just sititng here
Playing a gig, in a bar, with my friends,
This bloke steps up, Big D, from A&R
Says 'I'm gonna make you a star'
Sat me down, said 'I'm, with the best'
Slapped a contract on the desk




Now the pressure's on to kick it like the rest,
Won't see a penny till i recoup your investment
So i'll cut this track in 3 and 40 seconds


I've got to get my head checked, I've got to wake up not wrecked
but it's all control and no soul, selling my art for some, high place chart.
I sold my soul, for radio, there's no Rock & Roll there's no...

Compromise, gotta sell those records, stack 'em high
Music-Wise, yeah it's pretty vacant but to make the charts,
But the song that the radio's play are 3-40 ...

They don't care what i feel
It\s all about the 6 figure record deal
I'm Keeping It Real

Big D, he's worked wih Mika, worked with Usher,
worked with blah, blah blah, he says, 'stick with me you'll be a star, you've got to change your ways'

The alarm bells ringing as he turns and says
'Sometimes selling out is good, coz you'll get praised,
Being true won't buy your mansion in L A'
So if i change my style, will i go all the way.

Counting Down, 3-40 s-....
