"thursday afternoon" as written by Henry Rollins, Sim (simeon Cain Mcdonald) Cain, Chris Haskett and Melvin Gibbs....
Please let me see the faults that my ego denies me
Please don't let me grow so tall that I forget the ground beneath me
Don't let me forget that satisfaction has no friends
That glory always fleeting, already gone

I've wasted so much time
I've wasted so much time

I'm trying to get it straight
I'm trying to get it straight
I'm trying to keep it straight in my mind

Don't let me think its love when it's only just obsession
I spent so many nights punching that wall
So me the difference between decision and denial
I want to know why I ask why

I'm trying to get it straight
I'm trying to get it straight
I'm trying to keep it straight in my mind

I'm trying to keep myself in check
I'm trying to keep myself in check
So tired of regret

Let me see confusion for exactly what it is
Don't let me make my rage a total regret
Allow me to side step my frustration and hostility
And the violence that comes to me so easily to easily
I've wasted so much time
I've wasted so much time

I'm trying to get it straight
I'm trying to get it straight
I'm trying to get it straight in my mind
I'm trying to keep myself together
Struggling struggling struggling when did they lose it

    General CommentFirst, a few corrections to the first verse (in CAPS)

    Please let me see the FAULTS that my ego denies me
    Don't let me grow so tall that I forget the ground beneath me
    Don't let me forget that satisfaction has no friends
    That glory's only FLEETING, already gone

    Ok, that said, this song has served as a mantra in my life for over 10 years, especially the last verse:

    Let me see my confusion for exactly what it is
    Don't let me make my rage a tool of regret
    Allow me to sidestep my frustration and hostility
    And the violence that comes to me so easily
    Too easily

    All the things I have been through in my life have left me with an anger that I have to fight to keep at bay everyday, so it doesn't consume my life...

    Henry Rollins is the MAN.
