lyrics

addicts victorious was a band you’ve never heard of
and i’m relatively sure you never will
’cause they don’t care about you
and i’m relatively sure they never will

they don’t book, they don’t promote
they never even played a show
they never wrote a song you know
and they’re not going to

they don’t play for anyone (x3)
for anyone, oh, for anyone, oh

hugo alenez made a cassette tape
that i acquired in the seventh grade
from my brother who had seen them play when they existed
but they don’t write the kind of songs that lead towards music careers
so like the tape, they disappeared

they never thought of being fake
they never had one cent to make
they just sang for singing’s sake
because they wanted to

they don’t play for anyone
they don’t play for anyone, oh
they don’t play for anyone
for anyone, oh, for anyone, oh

pete peterson made an album
that somehow found its way into my apartment
and then found its way into my head
i’ll know his songs ’til the day i’m dead
until the day i’m dead

can’t say who he is, though i wish i could
i looked him up but it did no good
i cross my heart, i’d show trade if he would
but he’s not going to

they don’t play for anyone
they don’t play for anyone, oh
they don’t play for anyone
for anyone, oh

they don’t play for anyone (they don’t play) (x3)
for anyone, oh, for anyone, oh
