Wristband

Album: Stranger to Stranger (2016)

  • I stepped outside the backstage door to breathe some nicotine
    And maybe check my mailbox, see if I can read the screen
    Then I heard a click, the stage door lock
    I knew just what that meant
    I'm gonna have to walk around the block if I wanna get it in

    Wristband, my man, you've got to have a wristband
    If you don't have a wristband, my man, you don't get through the door
    Wristband, my man, you've got to have a wristband
    And if you don't have a wristband, my man, you don't get through the door

    I can explain it, I don't know why my heart beats like a fist
    When I meet some dude with an attitude saying "hey, you can't do that, or this"
    And the man was large, a well-dressed six-foot-eight
    And he's acting like Saint Peter standing guard at the pearly

    Wristband, my man, you've got to have a wristband
    That you don't have a wristband, you don't get through the door
    And I said wristband?
    I don't need a wristband
    My axe is on the bandstand, my band is on the floor

    I mean it's just

    (Wristband)
    (Wristband)
    (Wristband)
    (Wristband)
    (Wristband)
    (Wristband)
    (Wristband)

    The riots started slowly with the homeless and the lowly
    Then they spread into the heartland towns that never get a wristband
    Kids that can't afford the cool brand whose anger is a short-hand
    For you'll never get a wristband and if you don't have a wristband then you can't get through the door
    No you can't get through the door (wristband)
    No you can't get through the door (wristband)
    Say you can't get through the door, no (wristband)
