about

Inspired by Marlon Brando's character in 'On the Waterfront' by Elia Kazan from 1954 comes our musical take on how one could have been a contender.

lyrics

Contender

I’m so good at feeling bad.
No one can beat me in that.
I’m so good at feeling lonely.
Nobody calls me their one and only.

Put it to the test,
there’s no contest:

I’m the best at being depressed.

I put my hands in the air
to make it look as if they’re going somewhere.
I always scream and shout
because there’s nothing in my life worth whispering about.

Put it to the test,
there’s no contest.

Everybody’s supposed to be good at something,
good at something, at least at one thing.

I’m the best at being depressed.
