I am not throwing away my spot
I am not throwing away my spot

yo I'm right at the junction
and I still like my tungsten
and I'm not throwing away my spot.

I'm gonna rise up
hit that actor as he tells it
I'm gonna rise up
in the dark no way he sells it

rise up rise up rise up rise up

I'm gonna rise up
store some halogens in secret
rise up
I have an arc lamp if I needs it
rise up
no burn of honor with LED sh*t
rise up rise up

some of us have to have the old way
watch the ash fall and the glass spray
the gunshot pop as fil-a-ments fray
and the LD wants it his way?

Hell there's no hist'ry in what HE say.

And I am not throwing away my spot
I am not throwing away my spot
yo I'm right at the junction and I still like my tungsten
And-I-am not throwing away my...... spot

No mention of gaff tape? Blasphemy!
Be careful what you ask for....


No one else is in the room when we’re gaffin
the room when we’re gaffin the room when we're gaffin
No one really knows how the cable gets layed
they just assume that it happens
but no one else is in the room when we’re gaffin.

My God, In Gaff we Trust
But we never really know what got discussed
Click boom then it’s fastened
But no one else was in the room when we’re gaffin.

And I wanted what I got
When you got shins in the game you stay in the game
And someone trips unless you play in the game
Oh you get love for it
You get hate for it
But you get nothing if you

God help and forgive me
It aint gonna build something that’s gonna outlive me
And no one else was in the room when we’re gaffin.

And maybe just one more before I get kicked off the forum.....

How does a bastard, orphan, son of a whore And a Thespian,
Dropped in the rafters with a forgotten spot
In a theater by providence impoverished
In squalor, grow up to be a genius tech whiz scholar?

With ten-dollars finds a way to save a thousand
Got a lot farther by thinking a lot harder
by knowing how to solder
by knowing the gel charter
by fourteen they put him in charge as a cue starter

And every day while actors were being dismissed and sent away
Across the faders he struggled and kept his guard up
Inside he was longing for something to be a part of
The brother was ready to busk and cue, till martyred

Well the word got around they said this kid is an insane sage
Took up a collection just to send him to the main stage
Get your work with the local but don’t forget from whence you came
And the playbill’s gonna show your name

What’s your name man?
Alexander Hamiltech
My name is Alexander Hamiltech
And there’s a million things I havn’t done
Just you wait Just you wait.
