Time to Make Demands

about

Live recording, originally for the NPR Tiny Desk Contest, but liked the performance enough to get it out anyway.
This song is both a tribute to my fellow working singer songwriters and me, and a message to those who seem to forget how great it is to actually go and see live music verses just looking/listening online.

lyrics

This is the dawn of something credible.
And when did we become so terrible?
We scream at levels so indelible
But you hear whispers at a decibel.

Maybe I'm lying through this microphone
But you can't hear it 'cause you're still at home.
Maybe I'm dying for this after all.
So here's the pride that comes before the fall.

This is the thing that you've been hungry for
The knock that you weren't hearing at your door.
This is the place that you've been heading for
Now that you are, what did you come here for?

Maybe I'm lying through this microphone
But you can't hear it 'cause you're still at home.
Maybe I'm dying for this after all.
So here's the pride that comes before the fall.

Don't run 'til you fall over
Just 'til you can barely stand.
There's no four leaf clover.
It's Time to Make Demands.

Maybe I'm lying through this microphone
But you can't hear it 'cause you're still at home.
Maybe I'm dying for this after all.
So here's the pride that comes before the fall.
