"Old Shit/New Shit" as written by and Mark O. Everett....
Everyone loves you
Nobody cares
An awful collection
Of enemies and friends
Congratulations to you
With no regrets
I'm tired of the old shit
Let the new shit begin

They psychic pain
Of living in this world
Is overwhelming me
Again and again
A beautiful afternoon
Inside you in your bed
I'm tired of the old shit
Let the new shit begin

Nobody loves you
Everyone cares
None of them know what's
Coming 'round the bend
Congratulations to me
Many happy returns
I'm tired of the old shit
Let the new shit begin

    General CommentThis song is about how people always want to move on in life because it always seems bad at the current, even when it changes. "Everyone loves you, nobody cares"/"Nobody loves you, everyone cares".

    I think this is about "The psychic pain of living in this world" and feeling utterly misunderstood and lonely
    Kind of mild form of depression where one loses faith in everything. Nothing feels good enough, yet you manage to get through. I think E. has that (you can see it in "mental" too) ... Stephin Merritt could be another exemple ... makes great writers ...

    General CommentThis song is about being a sad sack but wanting to move on. He's done the depressed thing - he's ready to move on from that. And feel something different. It's something I was going through when this song was released.
