My Thoughts, Their Words

Sometimes, I'll hear a line from a song and it hits me like a punch. They feel so personal, as if they were pulled from my own subconscious. I didn't write these lyrics, but I'm grateful someone did.
________

I don't know what to want from this world.
I really don't know what to want from this world.
I don't know what it is you want to want from me.
You really have no right to want anything from me at all.

Why don't you take it out on somebody else?
Why don't you bore the shit out of somebody else?
Why don't you tell somebody else that they're selfish,
A weakling, coward, a pathetic fraud?

~ John Grant, lyricist and musical genius
