View Lyrics

I got my glass
And I’ve got my wine
Been working on my temper
And honey I got time
I’d spend it all on you
But what’s the use?
‘Cause once you see the problem
You’re bound to see it through

Like you said try try try try try
Just try to see the world
In a better way

And I’m saying my my my my my
My point of view
Doesn’t need to change

And I’ve got my boots
I’m putting on my hat
I’m picking up my car keys
And I ain’t coming back
This way no more
I’m saying what’s the use?
I’m working on this theory
The blame is all on you

‘Cause you would lie lie lie lie lie
Until we’re dead and gone
But who could live that way?

And I’d rather die die die die die
Than see you waste your breath
On the shit you say
So I’m out the door

And I’ve got my legs
I’m gonna try ‘em out
And if I get me moving
You’re gonna hear me shout
You’re gonna know for sure
Ain’t nothing you could do
‘Cuase once I spot that problem
I’m gonna see it through

And I would cry cry cry cry cry
For lack of nothing else
That I would rather do

And I’m thanking my my my my my my my
My lucky stars
For getting through with you
So I’m out the door.

Notes
I don’t spend a whole lot of time in relationships. Perhaps one of the reasons behind that is my tendency to allow my will to be walked over. I don’t know if the root is a lack of self confidence, but I’ve always tried for the path of least resistance rather than speaking my peace, like I’m lucky to have somebody’s attention and I’m desperate not to do or say anything to lose it. As a result of this I just feel like a stronger version of myself when I’m on my own. This song is a fictional reversal of my usual persona. The narrator of this song is confident that his point of view is sound and he shouldn’t have to change who he fundamentally is for another person. He is able to assign blame when necessary instead of always shouldering it. He is able to righteously walk out when the situation is clearly hopeless, rather than hanging on for the sake of convenience. I like this narrator, despite the fact that he isn’t necessarily reliable. Certainly all the blame doesn’t belong in one place, and his surety of his correctness should be questioned. But he is decisive nonetheless, and that is a trait that I’ve struggled to attain.

Here’s hoping your Monday doesn’t totally suck.
