Suffer For Your Art

Playin’ on the sidewalk
Make a little change
Everyone’s an audience
All the world’s a stage
Believe in it with passion
Play it from the heart
Screw the latest fashion
Suffer for your art

Rollin’ out the food stamps
Buy a new guitar
Livin’ out a daydream
Sleepin’ in your car
Collecting unemployment
Break your mother’s heart
Rumblin’ in your stomach
Suffer for your art

Suffer for your art
Suffer for your art
If you wanna make a record
You must suffer for your art

No one said that it’d be easy
Or even worth your while
People still ignore ya
When ya make ’em smile
Though it may sound cheesy
Ya gotta make a start
If ya wanna quit your day job
You must suffer for your art

Suffer for your art
Suffer for your art
If you wanna land a contract
You must suffer for your art

Everyone you play with
Has to know their part
Has to have the same vision
And drive right from the start

Suffer for your art
Suffer for your art
If you wanna get to Cleveland
You must suffer for your art
