Streetlight Manifesto 1234 1234 Lyrics

Last updated: 01/19/2011 10:00:00 AM

You, you try, you try to get by,
you’re never going to pull it off,
you shouldn't even try.
You're a wet cigarette,
you’re always second best,
they're never going to give a shit about anybody but themselves.
So you fight for them to realize,
there's more to life,
there's more to you,
there's more than meets the eye.
And when you're done, the battle's been won,
you sit back, you smile,
And this is what you hum, you hum,
Whoa, whoa, oh, oh, whoa, oh, oh, whoa, oh, oh,
Whoa, whoa, oh, oh, whoa, oh, oh, whoa, oh, oh.

You, you try, you try to get by,
you’re never going to pull it off,
you shouldn't even try.
You're a wet cigarette,
you’re always second best,
they're never going to give a shit about anybody but themselves.
You fight for them to realize,
there's more to life,
there's more to you,
there's more than meets the eye.
And when you're done, the battle's been won,
you sit back, you smile,
And this is what you hum, you hum,
Whoa, whoa, oh, oh, whoa, oh, oh, whoa, oh, oh,
Whoa, whoa, oh, oh, whoa, oh, oh, whoa, oh, oh.

(Years!) go by, the time it does fly, (Whoa oh oh)
Every single second is a moment in time, (Whoa oh oh)
that passes oh so quick, and it seems like nothing, (Whoa oh oh)
but when you're looking back, well it amounts to everything,
(Whoa) I've got myself, I've got my friends, (Whoa oh oh)
I've got my little family, but that's not where it ends, (Whoa oh oh)
This one goes out to you, it goes out to everyone, (Whoa oh oh)
It's in the name of honesty because life has just begun.
Whoa, whoa, oh, oh, whoa, oh, oh, whoa, oh, oh,
Whoa, whoa, oh, oh, whoa, oh, oh, whoa, oh, oh.

Look around little brother can you tell me what you see?
You're a big boy now, so take responsibility,
you never had it hard, but now it's getting tough,
so you (whine! whine! whine!) and you say you've had enough.
You say I'm full of shit, that I'm a hypocrite
I shouldn't talk when I can't take the advice that I give,
Well maybe you're right, but open your eyes:
the main difference here is that I (try! try! try!)

Whoa, whoa, oh, oh, whoa, oh, oh, whoa, oh, oh.
Whoa, whoa, oh, oh, whoa, oh, oh, whoa, oh, oh.

Whoa, whoa, oh, oh, whoa, oh, oh, whoa, oh, oh.
Whoa, whoa, oh, oh, whoa, oh, oh, whoa, oh, oh.

[Windows voices go on to tell story behind the cd]

Please describe the experience of making the new album.
Making the record was not unlike shitting out peach pits.

2: What took so long to make it?
Did it take long? If so it's because we are very busy. Bands make almost nothing from record sales, so we were out touring and whoring in order to pay rent. Plus some other reasons which we are keeping quiet.

3: What is the record exactly, as it's called Keasbey Nights, but no-one knows yet what the record contains.
It's Keasbey Nights. We wanted to get it right for once. Plus it lets me sleep at night knowing that blood sweat and tears are poured into and album as opposed to paying 13 bucks for a record they only put a flashy new cover on it. This release is a pre-emptive strike, I guess. Whatever you want to call it, it will piss people off. And that, at the end of the day, is all that really matters.

This confuses me, aren't they paying 13 bucks for a record they already own? Because that is what I thought was happening, sounds like I have it wrong?
Yep you've got it wrong. If there's one thing I can't stand it's when a CD is re-released untouched sonically, with a new cover, and maybe a live video and ? kids are tricked into buying this new edition of something they already have. I was upset when I was told the guys were going to do this with Keasbey so I offered to re-record it, because I've always thought it sounded like pure garbage sound-wise. Plus the budgeta are laughable, particularly for a band with 7 musicians to record, so we used some of our own money and took our time with this one. So we used some of our own money and took out time with this one. I'll tell you right now, we have no intent of hiding our intentions, we wanted to prevent the re-release of Keasbey untouched as well as to get the record to sound how it should have sounded originally. For that we sacrificed months of our time, and our money and now we feel what we have is worth paying for. Although, truth be told, I don't care if a single record is sold as it is, indeed, old music and kids have a right to know what it is and to decide whether or not they'll pay for it. Do I think it's worth 13 dollars? Yes, very much so, but that's my opinion. What other people decide, that's their own opinion. We're going to keep doing what we do whether or not a single record is sold.
We're going to keep doing what we do whether or not a single record is sold.
We're going to keep doing what we do whether or not a single record is sold.
We're going to keep doing what we do whether or not a single record is sold.
We're going to keep doing what we do whether or not a single record is sold.
We're going to keep doing what we do whether or not a single record is sold.

Wow. Okay. First time I have heard it said that this is the same songs. Every time you were asked, you skirt that issue.
Whatever you want to call it, we will piss people off. And that, at the end of the day, is all that really matters.
As my good friend always says, you are indeed a cassette, and unfortunately just don't get it. Peace out bitches.

correction | Reviewer: Kevin | 4/11/10

Sorry to put my correction here, but the link is giving me a blank page, There's probably something is wrong with my Java. I believe the "?" you have in the interview is "plus the budgets are laughable". And it's hard to tell with the synth voices, but I think "chipping out each piece" is actually "shitting out peach pits." At least it makes more sense, I guess.
