lyrics

There’s just no need for you to try to impress me
I’m on the road and I am seeking liberty
Well you only know what you have seen in magazines

So if you want some kind of recognition here
Go fix my microphone make sure the signal’s clear
I have no time for all your pettiness you see

We keep our mouths closed and pretend that everything’s fine
Before you’re stranded forever leave the scenery behind

Well it’s a lovely game and it’s complete with disdain
You just keep on chasin’ ‘round this thing called fame
Not this time
You’re whining again
What’s your story

You’re just so beautiful to watch when you tell lies
There is no glimmer of salvation in your eyes
I used to want to get to know you
You’re such a prize

We keep our mouths closed and pretend that everything’s fine
Before you’re stranded forever leave the scenery behind

Well it’s a lovely game and it’s complete with disdain
You just keep on chasin’ ‘round this thing called fame
Not this time
You’re whining again
What’s your story

Ask me for the answers
I don’t have the answers
Where do we go
Where do we go
I am on fire
On fire
again

Before Dawn Appleton, Wisconsin

“A hook and synth-laden wall of sound decorated with memorabilia from 70s punk rock, 80s new wave, 90s club music and, well, just about anything else you can think of! With a timeless showmanship and knack for comedic timing, this two-person outfit is guaranteed to start a full-on dance party with or without you.” – Shawn Petsche, Sled Island Music Festival Promoter ... more
