"All Downhill From Here" as written by Jim O'Rourke....
Don't believe a word I say
Not that you would anyway
I may be insincere
But it's all downhill from here

If I seem a bit remote
You'll feel better if you say I'm a misanthrope
Or whatever floats your boat
As for me, I'd rather sink my own

Even though I'm here, you should feel all alone
Maybe the point of this you've just outgrown
There are names for me that are better known
Just draw a line and I'll add my own

    General CommentI think its about the beginning of the end of a relationship. I really like the vocals on this one.

    General Commentmy favourite line: "oh whatever floats your boat"
    i agree it's the end of a relationship...but not necessarily love. maybe friends falling out, or maybe they weren't even very good friends to begin with.
    the guitar in this one is great.
