lyrics

Promisemaker Pete
----------------------------

He’ll sell you a dream for free
But falling asleep will cost you a fee
You’re gonna be a star
Or he will say you’re not too far
So sign the deal to make it real
It’s gonna be too late too soon
Just do what I say, my protege
It’s almost guaranteed
There’s trophies on the wall
But the writing’s kind of small
Cause the names tell a story
Of someone else’s glory

Promisemaker Pete
He’ll send you down the street
When the next one comes along
It don’t matter if it’s right or wrong
As long as his cut is sweet
That’s Promisemaker Pete

He’ll drop the names to make his claims
And tell you tales that promise fame
Connections that he’s made are
Good as gold so long as he’s paid
It’s subscription-based success or
So he’ll constantly profess
It’s almost simply automatic
Reviews are practically ecstatic
The photos on his page are posted
With hopes you’ll think he’s backstage
He keeps books he’s never read but
Reads the cheat note versions instead

That’s Promisemaker Pete
He’ll send you down the street
When the next one comes along
It don’t matter if it’s right or wrong
As long as his cut is sweet
That’s Promisemaker Pete

I don’t know why he has to lie
To get his way
To him it’s all a line on his
Misleading resume

Don’t sell your soul for an
Overblown goal, that’s right
He’ll make the case fees are
Commonplace, that’s right
Promisemaker Pete
He’ll sell you down the street
That’s right
Oh Promisemaker Pete
He will send you down the street
That’s right
Promisemaker Pete
Oh he will sell you down the street
That’s right
Promisemaker Pete
He’s just lookin’ for a cut that’s sweet
That’s right
Promisemaker Pete
He will send you down the street
That’s right
