The Lyrics

Our group is changing almost all the time.
Folks don't know what we're called anymore.
There's a stranger running thru his lines,
And a drummer who wasn't here before.

I was thinking that maybe we'd need a name,
Not a list of guys that's often changed.
Just something that fans could call us,
With appeal and sorta strange.

A name,
A band needs a name.
A name.

It's hard to rise to fame
When bands remain unnamed,

To win some fans, you gotta have a band.
To win demand, you gotta have a brand,
Something that rolls off the tongue.

Some time before, we played and roamed the land.
I was stalked by a groupie of the band.
I was the last on a vast list.
She was craving my heart but seemed like second-hand.

A name,
A band needs a name.
A name.

Something that stays ever young.
