The One Man Band Broke Up
[Hook]
The one man band broke up
The one man band broke up
Due to creative differences
The one man band broke up
And everybody mourned the pa**ing by pa**ing along

Oh f**k a simple requiem
For the moments in the dusty record bins once lived in by kings
Now graveyards for great stars that will never reign again
These deserts full of fractured limbs and scattered instruments that can still sing like kids
Are rotting into nothingness and the abyss is dim
I remember when you kept time with the ba** drum pedal
While your left foot played organ melodies...
A harmonica...
A banjo...
When you put an old hat out for the crowd pa**ersby wearing suits and ties tried to hide
But they couldn't possibly deny your banshee cries
Five decades in a wishing well
Only waiting for someone to toss a pail
Or a life vest
Or some type of help
But your body failed
And your mind failed
And your career fell into oblivion with the rest of your peers
Loving what you did only got you so far through these years
The moral of the story is
No one really gives a sh*t
But don't cry for the swatted flies
They loved what they did
The moral of the story is
No one really gives a sh*t
But don't cry for the swatted flies
They loved what they did
[Hook]
