lyrics

Driving down the highway on the lookout for the cops
Breaking every limit we're the band that never stops
Eighty miles an hour and five hundred miles a day
After two weeks every exit starts to look the same

We don't have a future, we don't have a past
All we have are speeding tickets and a tank of gas
We're not on the TV, we're not on the charts
You don't know our faces and you don't know who we are
We're zero stars

Wake up at the crack of noon and head out on the road
Get lost for an hour while we're looking for the show
Tear the roof off every night and load back in the van
Find a place to sleep before the whole thing starts again

We keep making records, we keep writing songs
We are happy hiding underneath the underground
We don't play areans, we only play in bars
We don't need to pay someone to plug in our guitars
We're zero stars

We don't get a paycheck, we don't have a boss
We don't sit in cubicles with memos on the walls
We don't need a weekend, we don't need a break
We are on vacation for forever and a day
We don't have a future, we don't have a past
We maxed out the credit cards and we're out of gas
We're not on the TV, we're not on the charts
And we really don't care if you don't know who we are
We're zero stars
