FLARE

christy & the professorsChristy & The Professors, originally called Christy (Christy Foster) & The Professor (Nathan Foster), started in early 2013 as a fun project for a husband and wife team. Shortly after launching the project, the duo wanted to build a full band and added a few friends to play drums, percussion, and do backing vocals in the group. In August of 2013 local guitarist Shane Pitmon heard the band live and a week later asked to join the lineup. Over the next couple months the band made a few more lineup changes and in November 2013 added drummer Ryan Hudson. After adding Ryan, the current lineup was in place and Christy & The Professors began work on their debut EP.

christyChristy, like us, has struggled with fibromyalgia. Being in a rock band, she wrote a ROCK song about how she was treated by the medical community and thought it might resonate with others who have had a similar experience.  The song is called FLARE!


WORDS:
And they say that they think that it’s all in my head
And I say that I feel I’d be better off dead
All the blood that they drew they could never be fed
Forget you

And they say that they know how I feel
And they say that they know what’s for real
You’re just a cog in a broken medicine wheel
Forget you

I-I am not your waste of time
Your pride is such a shameful crime
Your ignorance it blows my mind
Forget you

You think that you know me
But you’ll never know me
You are such a waste of time

You think that you know me
But you’ll never know me
I never gave you what’s mine
Forget you

I-I am not your waste of time
No no you are so blind
I-I am gonna blow your mind
Forget you

  1. Love it, the song is just about us, and how we feel. And that no one listens to us, and they tell us that it all in our head. I think its wicked!

  2. Love this! Says exactly how we feel!
