Acerbic wit and social commentary slips against a mixture of bluegrass and rock and roll letting the listener have a taste of just how goddamn hard it is be to be a musician. Exploding electric guitars, shattering keys and a pounding beat will have you stomping along even after it ends.


Bread rolls, dinner rolls
Bookerman look like you got no soul to me
I spy with my little eye nothing I want to buy
That I can't get for free
Why take some bacon when you can have the whole hog
Why run so fast pretty momma when you only have to jog, yeah

Hey man what's the plan
Please say you got a hundred grand for me
I know I just said I don't need no bread
But that's what you call hipocrisy
We all got to eat from the same garbage can sometimes
We all got to know where the next paper bag will be going
Will be going

Bright lights, bar fights
Uptight, out of sight, you don't know where I've been
And if you give me no cash for busting my ass
Well that right there's a god damn sin

We're surrounded by water so I better not bother
But I want to see this fucking place burned right down to the ground
And if you give me no dough, well I just don't know
What to say, man, I won't make a single sound

We all got to eat from the same dinner table sometimes
We all got to know where the next paycheck will be going
Will be going
