Nice job on the banjo :note2:
Good use of descriptive details :D
Everything was clear except why Nate is called "cousin"

Better Nate than lever :wink:

I like the chord progression in the chorus it has a pretty intense build. might be an idea to try scream the 'and i feel bad' line just to see how it sounds... even just on one chorus, i think it could work but anyway nice job!

"The music business is a cruel and shallow money trench, a long plastic hallway where thieves and pimps run free, and good men die like dogs. There's also a negative side."

Hey Ben, thanks for the suggestion, seems it could work on the second chorus (after the second verse) :!:
