The Quieter Side of Father Time


Oh, I’m just your normal musician
Ok, not so normal but still
I do what I can to find me some success
Who knows, maybe someday I will

So enter the big-mouthed promoter
He’d surely help me get ahead
and I was excited til I got his Email
My stomach just dropped when he said

I cracked the code
That’s what he told me he cracked the code
and though now he acts like it was nothing at all
then it was some big motherlode

I wrote back, said his Email dismayed me
He told me that it was my call
but I didn’t want him for his safecracking skills
and legal or not it was wrong

He said sorry for being so cryptic
but he had to be, well, here’s why
He got the info from the upper management
which later on they would deny

He cracked the code
I didn’t get into music to go down that road
The artists who need to must not be too good
but on with this lame episode

I told him Forget it, and dumped him
I wasn’t gonna make no big public stink
but he got so defensive in such a short time
Had a near nervous breakdown I think

He’d said that he’d knock out my molars
Showed me all of the hate that he’s got
Yeah he’s one tough guy on a bulletin board
but that scumbag put me in this spot

He cracked the code
A few gentle words, well, they made him explode
and someone not guilty, they don’t act like that
but I guess he reaped what he sowed

I went out to hear some live music
and I carried this dilemma along
Then it came to me, how to get it off of my chest
and soon enough, I had this song x

FT was approached by the top promoter on the large indie site because his song had debuted at #1. Promoter promised him serious new exposure. A day or so later, promoter revealed that his trick involved some combination of checking boxes he learned from upper management of the site. FT has ethics, he was against this sort of thing. For awhile he was in turmoil about disclosing what happened as he dropped the promoter. Then he decided to tell all in this song.

An entertaining story about staying true to one's ethics. Features some lovely harmonica and vocal harmonies.
