You've got it all figured out, yeah you've got a plan
To get us out of here and wash my hands clean of the tax man
You've got it all set up like you're in charge of fate
You're gonna make me famous like that's what I wanted in the first place

Now you're talking at me like I've never done this
Like I'm some kind of 20 year old poet with tits
Well Mister let me tell you I have no illusions about the music business
And ya know if I didn't like, I'd quit

But don't tell me that no one's listening
Don't tell me fans don't care
Don't you assume they are gonna buy just anything
'Cause when we're out in the clubs listening to the music
You're in a box answering Emails

5 million dollars yeah throw it against the wall
And if it doesn't stick watch everybody point their fingers at the artist
10 million copies sold, hey kid, you're a hit!
But at 10% ya know that's 90 for them

Plus the hotel rooms they destroyed
When you were singing your heart out during south by southwest
South by southwest

Don't tell me that no one's listening
Don't you tell me that fans don't care
Don't you assume they are gonna buy just anything
'Cause when we're out in the clubs listening to music

You're in a box pulling out your hair
They're in the clubs listening to music
You're in a box answering your Emails

Yah, it's a little better, now that I'm on an independent,
But you can still hear them saying; you know a radio hit
Would really validate this artist and
Do you ever think she's really gonna make it really really
Really really big?

The live work, yeah it's great
And smiles and crowds are forever
So I gotta just keep on saying to myself, ya know
The journey is the destination
The journey is the destination
I said the journey is the destination
The journey is the destination

Don't tell me no one's listening
Don't tell me fans don't care
You'd better not assume that they are gonna buy just anything
'Cause when we're out in the clubs listening to music

You're in a box pulling out your hair
They're in the clubs listening to music
You're in a box answering Emails
We are in the clubs listening to music

And we all know you wish you could be there
I got your telegram
