My time, my terms. “Not Now” is a call for clarity in a scene that’s overrun with stimulants and distractions. It’s a reminder that we don’t just wind up where we are. We make choices and we’re in control of those choices. If we don’t like our surroundings, we can change them, or leave them. Or we can decide to stay and immerse ourselves, all the while knowing that we’re more than what surrounds us, no matter how loud hot dark tasty all-consuming it is.


There’s a bigger, brighter, louder world.
Full of silly, empty girls.
A bottle service to be poured.
A thumping beat you can’t ignore.
You say that you’re all done with it
Tired of the clubbing shit
You want to just hang out and think
Without a fourteen-dollar drink

What happened to that guy I knew?
there’s nothing that he wouldn’t do.
What happened to that girl I knew?
there’s nothing that she wouldn’t do.

There’s more to me than this.
There’s more to life than this.
There’s more to do to see.
There’s more to me than this.
There’s more to life than this.
There’s more to do to be than this.

There’s always something outside waiting
Chances that you could be taking
A once in a million night
Underneath harsh spotlights
The louder they turn up the sound
The who you are gently drown
When everything is hit & run
Who are we when the night is done?

Do you really need that something more?
What else is worth looking for?
Not that you would ever quit
It doesn’t get - better than this
What you need is what you got
One more round won’t make it stop
