lyrics

The freeway is a parking lot, but I don't care
Standing here watching clouds of smog floating through the air
Up ahead in the distance is the horizon line
I've heard it said that you could see mountains once upon a time

Yeah I know that you come here
If you're not afraid to disappear
But my story wont end that way
Yeah I know no matter what your plan is
Chances are you're probably gonna vanish
I know this dog will have his day, so I say

Lady luck I wanna dance, won't you take me by the hand?
Does the world really need another rock n' roll band?
I'm getting high on my supply but there is really no demand
Does the world really need another rock n' roll band?

Friday it's a lottery, everybody plays
You work your day job then rush across town to take the stage
Play your heart out to a full house or an empty bar
To some new fans or a few friends telling you you'll go far

Look around and all I see
Too many other fools like me
Chasing the same illusive dream
How can I hope to stand out from such an enormous crowd?
It's too late to change horses midstream so it seems

Lady luck I wanna dance, won't you take me by the hand?
Does the world really need another rock n' roll band?
I'm getting high on my supply but there is really no demand
Does the world really need another rock n' roll band?

Do you really think you can go all the way?
Don't you know how many people seek fortune and fame?
What makes you think you're better than us?
Come down from your cloud you'll find that the real world's enough

Lady luck I wanna dance, won't you take me by the hand?
Does the world really need another rock n' roll band?
I'm getting high on my supply but there is really no demand
Does the world really need another rock n' roll band?

about

The Relevant Elephants Boston, Massachusetts

Beginning in 2011 as a loose collection of street musicians, The Relevant Elephants gradually moved on to the pubs and bars of their native Boston. By 2014, their lineup had solidified into a self-contained rock'n'roll unit, and 2015 saw the release of a debut EP.

Five years after their subway busking days began, the band's first full-length "Paper Walls" dropped, and the guys relocated to LA.
