lyrics

What is the source of the sound that your hearing?
There are no drums and yet we hear drums
What is recording and what is performance?
What is programming and how does it fit in?
Is there a gain you made in coming out tonight?
Or could you have just stayed home and just spun the record?
Half of its mechanical, have of its rote
There are no drums and yet we hear drums

Silencio!
No hay banda!
There is no band and yet we hear a band
Silencio!
No hay banda!
No hay orchestra, no hay orchestra!

This is a performance that’s less than a hobby
Mine is more than a hobby, not quite a career
But this isn’t ideal, there is so much extra
So little guitar in playing guitar
So get on board and get linked in
And practice and practice and give it a spin
And press the flesh and hold the right hands
Dress to the nines, and take the right stands

Silencio!
No hay banda!
There is no band and yet we hear a band
Silencio!
No hay banda!
No hay orchestra, no hay orchestra!
