words and music by Kristen Cothron


I guess all I need is a road that leads home to a bank and a bar and a man who knows what it is.
What it is now really... Oh but I’ll settle for silence and cigarettes
Am I sober? That depends on just what comes next...
Cause it’s all about what’s hot and did you find that to be your absolute celebrity?
It’s always an afterthought and I should have known it could never complete me...

So why don’t you make me famous?
You know art without applause can only be aimless
And why should I dance all night long alone?
...and let the radio drive me home...

So I can sing and I can scream if holds your attention
Just as long as you don’t forget
That it’s not god and it’s not love not politics and not fate
And I don’t hate you, and I don’t miss you,
Sure I want you but I can’t relate you you...


This is no negotiation between hearts and their relations
See I have found my own complication

Glory and fame may be fleeting, but obscurity is forever
And opportunities never come knocking at your door
It should always be open and your bridges never burned
