"But, Anyway" as written by and Waymon Boone....
I think I've had enough.
I think I might erupt.
I'm looking for some information.

It's digging in the skin.
Whenever I begin,
There's gonna be a complication.

I take another breath,
It's deeper than the rest.
I'm swimming to the final breaker.

It's sitting in my mouth.
I wanna get it out.
I wanna know when somethings on,

But anyway,
I just can't be myself today, apparently
But anyway,
Cause nothing seems to come to me so easily.
But anyway,
Cause I mistake my memories for company.
But what a day, I've gotta say,
I can't believe in myself today.

Sitting on the bed,
Every finger spread,
Looking for some motivation.

If I can offend,
I'll try to fit in
And I don't need an explanation.

I think I'd better wake.
I'm starting to deflate.
I'm looking for some compensation.

I'll never understand.
I'll never be a man,
When I don't know when something's on,

But Anyway,
I just can't be myself today, apparently
But Anyway,
Cause nothing seems to come to me, not possibly.
But anyway,
Cause I mistake my symphony for suffering.
But what a day, I've gotta say,
I can't believe in myself this way.

And I'll face it face down, the long way.
And I'll face it face down, the long way.

I think it's got an end.
I think it's gonna bend.
I think I gotta a new impression.

So tell me how I look.
Tell me what I took,
To try to keep the conversation.

I think I'll get it right.
I'm fucking with the light.
I'll turn it to the situation.

I'm doing what I can.
I'll never understand,
When I don't see when something's on

But Anyway,
I just can't be myself today, apparently
But Anyway,
Cause nothing seems to come to me so happily.
But anyway,
Cause I mistake my memories for company.
But what a day, I've gotta say,
They're getting harder to seperate.

But Anyway,
I just can't be myself today, apparently
But Anyway,
Cause nothing seems to come to me, not possibly.
But anyway,
Cause I mistake my symphony for suffering.
But what a day, I've gotta say,
I can't believe in myself today.

I can't believe in myself today.
I can't believe in myself today.
I can't believe in myself today.
I can't believe in myself today.

    General CommentThe opening/verses riff is totally awesome. They use the delay effect very nicely here! This song, to me, is about those days where you feel out of it and out of place and don't feel like yourself, but you carry on anyways. You have to push through those days where you question yourself or you'll never make it. Like he says in the chorus - he can't be himself today, BUT ANYWAY. It's like he's not letting his own personal struggles get in the way of daily life and with other people. Sometimes it's best just to fight your inner battles with yourself and no one else can really help you. This is a good song, give it a listen. It's almost danceable.
