"It's A Motherfucker" as written by and Mark O. Everett....
It's a motherfucker
Being here without you
Thinking 'bout the good times
Thinking 'bout the bad
And I won't ever be the same

It's a motherfucker
Getting through a Sunday
Talking to the walls
Just me again
But I won't ever be the same
I won't ever be the same

It's a motherfucker
How much I understand
The feeling that you need someone
To take you by the hand
And you won't ever be the same
You won't ever be the same

    General CommentI think this song is either about his girlfriend dying or it's about them breaking up. This album is very depressing, it's all songs about death or something as depressing. GOD I LOVE EMO! eels rule.

    ender, emo is hardcore: emotional hardcore.
    not the eels.

    i find it amusing that on the "parent-friendly" cd it says "it's a MONSTERTRUCKER!"

    General Commentthis song could be for death or a break up. it's all about losing someone and remembering everything and having a hard time moving on

    General CommentTo me it's about figuring out what to do with yourself after being in a relationship. Finding yourself on your own again. Sunday afternoon is usually when we have the most time on our hands and if you don't have anything to do but sit around and dwell on the past it can get pretty depressing.

    General Commentthis song reminds me of what i once had. it's the realisation that you fucked up. the realisation that, despite everything that may have happened, good or bad, that they effected you, helped mould you, became a part of you. and now they're gone.

    General CommentI've got a much-needed correction for the third verse:

    -------------
    It's a motherfucker
    How much I understand
    The feeling that you need someone
    To take you by the hand
    -------------

    General CommentIf i remember correctly, the song is to his sister who commited suicide when he was writing the album. Of course it's open to interpitation of how it makes you feel. It's very beautiful and it's been comforting for me in the wake of my best friend's death.
