"After the Scene Dies" as written by and Patterson Hood....
The graffiti on the backstage wall
Gets painted over in a muted shade
And the club becomes an Old Navy
After the scene dies

When the last six-string slinger
Has to bow down for insurance
And accept the mundane
After the scene dies

When the last one leaves
And the last note fades
And the last dream's been put away
Shut the light off, shut the light off

When the front-man turns to Jesus
And the drummer moves away
I'll still be doing what pleases me
After the scene dies

When the bartender passes and the owner cashes out
And they box up the glasses
And they take the sound system down
Guitars back in their cases, don't forget my fries
After the scene dies

When the last one leaves
And the last note fades
And the last dream's been put away
Shut the light off, shut the light off

After the scene dies
After the scene dies
After the scene dies
After the scene dies

What you gonna do when the club shuts down?
What you gonna do when the club shuts down?
What you gonna do when the club shuts down?
After the scene dies
