about

Sometimes I get pretty disillusioned with the whole 'musician' thing. Sitting through a young opening band that can't play the instruments their parents bought them in the same empty room you're about to play can get you down in the dumps if you think about it too hard.

lyrics

All these guitar players calling themselves musicians
All of these three-finger piano playing "musicians"
They learned the power chord, then must have just got bored
Figured there was nothing more
Is this who I'm trying to impress?

I never considered myself much of a musician
I guess that's why I have such a hard time with "musicians"
It's not I don't want you to have a point of view
I just wish that you'd tone it down
I mean, who are you trying to impress?

Wish I hadn't spent so long trying to be a musician
I may be a lot of things now, but not a musician
Maybe the second group I dropped out to do should have been a larger clue
"The stuff that you're writing doesn't impress"

Mammas, don't let your babies grow up to be musicians
It's a road with no end or reward for most musicians
I mean, just look at me, about to turn 30 with no record, no band, no degree
Just an ear that's harder to impress
