Moving Sliders

lyrics

Keep it down, down, down
He groused into his microbrew
Do they really need to be here?
Cause my money and me were looking for a room to ignore
And we can walk each other down Park St.
Get each other smashed at the library
Shout it till Andrew Jackson's ears bleed

On this rock I'll build my lounge
For conversational insiders
Cause money changes everything and moves the sliders

It's traditional; this ain't nothing new
Do you need him to explain it to you
Coming from a long line of men talking over guitars
And he won't tell you twice but he won't need to
He's trying to be nice, he's trying to help you
Take a minute, man, and think it through

On this rock I'll build my lounge
For conversational insiders
Cause money changes everything and moves the sliders

So pull down the white board and cancel your plans
Unplug the microphone while clapping your hands
The waiter saluted and fell back into line
Left the tab open, pushed a tear from his eye
Genuflecting to his betters as he topped off the wine
Just keep showing up, man, you'll get it in time
From the townies and the students
To the flies and the spiders
Money changes everything and moves the sliders
