I have become that which I loathe:


First of all, nothing's happened, nothing's changed, and things are fine. I just love this song.


Grievances
by Daniel Johnston

If I had my own way
you'd be here with me today.
But I rarely have my own way,
I guess that's why you're not here with me today.
And the librarian said
"you can't buy no respect"
I said "hey lady what can you expect
when I'm lying on the floor?"

You're a lovely lady but you don't wanna be no girl of mine.
Well the only thing you ever done for me
was to help me waste my time.
And I saw you at the funeral;
you were standing there like a temple.
I said "hi, how are you? Hello,"
and I pulled out the casket and crawled in.
Yes i did.

Climbed up the mountain and I looked around--
some kind of circus with all them clowns.
I said "hey, wait a minute. Can't we slow down a bit?"
and I almost got hit by a truck.
Well it just goes to show you that we're all on our own
scrounging for our own share of good luck.
Stab your brother in the back,
and pick up your paycheck.

Good-bye lonely-hearts drawings
you never did work anyhow.
I'm looking for a nice girl
and I don't want no cow.
I'm heading out west
gonna find me the best.
Well I played the game but I failed the test.
If I can't be a lover, then I'll be a pest.
Yes I will.
