Well I don’t know what you’re looking for
But I do know that you won’t find it at the Rainblo
So you might as well stay home
Well I don’t care what you’re looking for
But I do know that you don’t like drinking alone
And you’re too smart to act so dumb
Your Levis will wear thin
Where your knees bend again and again
Well I’ve seen that look enough times to know
What you’re in the mood for
But these here can’t be bad anymore tonight
You poor thing, already used to sleeping alone
And you’re too dumb to see those wet shoes are no use to you

I don’t know what you’re looking for
But I do know that you ain’t no god damn son of a bitch
You’re just more unlikable than you used to be
You’re a long ways away from the place we thought you’d be by now
You’re a long ways away from the place we thought you’d be by now
You’re a long ways away from the place we thought you’d be by now
You’re a long ways away from the place we thought you’d be by now

    General Commentwell, it's called "Note to self" so I can only assume these are all his views on himself.

    General CommentIs there also a little bit of the misfits? I think "I ain't no goddam son of a bitch" is on their song "where Eagles dare"

    General CommentI think you're right. I heard something about that from my friend.

    By the way...this is an Amazing song. Sounds alot like what I bet american football would sound like today. Mike kinsella is a genius.

    General Comment"And these eyes will wear thin
    Wear your disguise again and again"

    the real line there says "and your Levi's will wear thin where your knees bend again and again"

    General Commentalthought the bar is called The Rainbo.. so i don't know if this is an inside joke of some sort. could be. but yeah. i love how mike is autobiographical, or rather, autogeographical.
