Nothing Maker

Chrissie Hynde has a new Pretenders album out, “Break Up The Concrete”, with a great song called “The Nothing Maker.” It’s very yogic in its way:

He doesn’t make shoes
Or design any shirt
Or take photographs
But no-one gets hurt

And he doesn’t look trendy
Like guys in magazines
You won’t see him at parties
He’s not the face behind the scenes

He makes nothing
He’s the nothing maker
He’s the maker of nothing
He’s the nothing maker

And he doesn’t paint pictures
Or write poetry
Or work on the stage
For others to see

And he don’t expect much
As Santa Claus knows
‘Cause he doesn’t make lists
Of toys and new clothes

He makes nothing
He’s the nothing maker
He’s the maker of nothing
He’s the nothing maker

Everyone’s chasing
A reason to live
Mostly they take more than they give
The succeeder justifies
Why he needs more than the rest
Believes his own lies
And thinks he’s the best

My guy doesn’t make movies
To suit an audience’s whim
He lives by a code
Known only to him

He doesn’t make money
To buy watches and cars
‘Cause there’s no time and no place to go
For a man who has nothing to show

He makes nothing
He’s the nothing maker
He’s the maker of nothing
He’s the nothing maker
