Proper (USA)

"Curtain’s Down! Throw in the Towel"

[Verse 1]
First off I’d like to say I won’t apologize for being so brash
It seems to get your attention, maybe a little bit of cash
To put in my gas tank to last the road a few days
'Cause letting words speak louder than actions was just how I was raised
I failed to learn from my parents:
"If you got nothing nice to say, don’t speak at all"
But my favorite punk bands taught me to never take the fall
For every f*ck up someone’s bound to make
But if you do then write one hell of a song for every “honest mistake”

[Chorus]
This is it, it’s it for me
I’ll spend my whole life under dull lights
'Cause that’s where I want to be
You might think it’s a waste of time
How will I ever know if I don’t try?

[Verse 2]
And second I’d like to say that this will be a lot different than my first show
I’m streets ahead of that kid you knew writing sh*tty songs 5 years ago
Been doing it long enough to know what I should be expecting
But it still blows my mind to see kids pay for a show and spend the entire time texting
They say: "the music scene is dead" and "the crowd has died", and "There’s always someone in the front row talking louder than I can even scream" - maybe he’s got something more important to say?
Or maybe we’re just wasting their time on stage?
But if one person connects to just one thing I say
Then that’s enough for me, 'cause we’re not just here to get paid

[Chorus]
This is it, it’s it for me
I’ll spend my whole life under dull lights
'Cause that’s where I want to be
You might think it’s a waste of time
How will I ever know if I don’t try?

[Bridge]
And last but not least I want to thank you for being here tonight
To watch me make an ass out of myself under the spotlight
"Can’t top the last album, should’ve stayed an opening act"
$10 words in a $1 sentence, but with half the class or tact
Seriously, all of the doubt aside
I hope you don’t mind if I tell a few stories about my life
So buckle in, let’s see how it goes, whoah

[Chorus]
This is it, it’s it for me
I’ll spend my whole life under dull lights
'Cause that’s where I want to be
You might think it’s a waste of time
How will I ever know if I don’t try?
This is it, it’s it for me
I’ll spend my whole life under dull lights
'Cause this is where I want to be
You might think it’s a waste of time
How will I ever know if I don’t try?

[Outro]
This is it, it’s it for me
I’ll spend my whole life under dull lights
'Cause that’s where I want to be
You might think it’s a waste of time
How will I ever know if I don’t try?
