Work Horses vs Show Ponies

from Perspectives & Objectives (2013) by Antillectual



The only road to good shows is bad ones. Just go start having a bad time, and if you don't give up, you will get better. - Louis C.K.

Being in this band is our main passion, giving it our all. I’m sure we told you before. But as with anything else in life, if you love (doing) something, it will take a lot of time and energy to make it work and get ahead. There’s no luck and less talent than you think involved. In the end it’s only one decision: Start a band.


Feel free to parade on the dog and pony show
We’ll carry our load in the meantime
Don’t call it just luck, what happens off stage you don't know
It's simply a choice, make up your mind

Alright stop, collaborate and listen
If you can’t stand the heat, get out of the kitchen

Who told you that this was going to be easy?
Nobody told you that you would surely prevail
What holds you back from doing as you please?
Those who never try will never fail

But who knows, all placed bets might turn out wrong
I'll stick with this horse for as long as it's on the run
I've looked it up, I’ve tracked it down in the brochure
But couldn't find “give up” or “slow down”
