I Quit

lyrics

Things were very different
in metal’s early year
you could leave your day job
and forge a new career

But now a good show means
some pizza and 9 bucks... this sucks.
So I’ve been thinking hard
and come to a decision about this shit
I QUIT

Seven hours in a bar every night on tour is not my idea of fun
I like traveling with my pals, but enough, hell with this, I’m done
I could be sitting at home with Netflix, relaxing while I draw up some art
Instead of being miserable and breathing in your smoke while bashing my head apart

Dudes are sick of listening to me whine
These guys want to tour all of the time
I’ll run things behind the scenes and write more songs but
as for shows, you’re out of luck, find someone who’s a better fit
Cause you know what?
I QUIT

NICK:
Tom, come on, you can’t leave the band
This is your baby, I don’t understand

We’re going in different directions, this blows
I don’t like bars and I don’t like shows

MIKE:
People won’t come if they won’t see your face
You’re our main draw, man, you can’t be replaced

That’s bullshit, people just like the songs
It doesn’t matter who does the screaming, you’re wrong

I would stay if this paid like a job
But I miss my home, I miss my dog
I wish you the best, I wish you well,
but from now on find someone else

BRIAN:
Please stay, nobody else could stir up such a pit.

That’s true, but I told you...
I QUIT
I QUIT
I QUIT
I QUIT
I QUIT

I’M OUT
I’M GONE
I’M THROUGH
I’M DONE
I QUIT
QUIT
QUIT

about

Lich King Greenfield, Massachusetts

We create new old-school thrash metal in the vein of EXODUS, VIO-LENCE, S.O.D., SLAYER and others.

We think the sound of thrash was perfected in the 80’s and we’re not trying to add anything to the mix. We’re just coming up with riffs and songs that the old masters didn’t.
