"I Don't Care" as written by Jason Brown, Rufus Moore, Jerome Jones, J. Grigsby and S. Joseph....
I ride this train in the wind-swept afternoon
And the sunlight warms the faces of the faithless who are waiting
I ride this train, but I need a conversation
Mozambique or was it Veronique, but
You pick the subject, and I'll listen to you

(People tell me that I feel too much)
But I don't care, I don't care
(People tell me that I need too much)
But I don't care; no, I don't care

I ride this train in a dream like state of mind
Through a field of frozen memories, imagination racing
I ride this train, but I need to make connections
No, I wasn't staring, I was only trying
To get some substance, to get some meaning

(People tell me that I feel too much)
But I don't care; no, I don't care
(People tell me that I need too much)
But I don't care; no, I don't care
(People tell me that I feel too much)
Oh no, 'cause I don't care; no, I just don't care anymore
As I ride this train

(People tell me that I feel too much)
But I don't care; no, I don't care
(People tell me that I need too much)
But I don't care; no, I don't care
(People tell me that I feel too much)
Oh no, 'cause I don't care; no, I just don't care anymore
As I ride this train

As I ride this train
(People tell me that I feel too much)
As I ride this train

Keep on ridin' this train
(People tell me that I need too much)
As I ride this train

As I ride this train

(People tell me that I feel too much)

(People tell me that I need too much)

    General CommentThis song sounds so real...Maybe because of the train sound in the background. But you really feel like Darren is trying to make connections with the rest of the world, that seem so distant and cold. I sense that he feels alone and that his kindness, depth and sensitivity are out of place in this world, at least he is in that mood. I relate, I might be too sensitive and 'feel too much' as well and that's not usually a good thing to survive and be mentally 'healthy' today. :(

    This was a 'Hold Me' b-side and was included in 'Truly Madly Completely' (2005).

    General Commenti think this is one of the best savage garden songs.

    i guess it's about him just spinning through life, trying to get something real out of it but failing.

    *No I wasn’t staring, I was only trying
    To get some substance, to get some meaning*

    and i also like the juxtaposition of him "feeling to much" but immediately after "not caring".

    General CommentTo me, this song is all about being numb.
    People tell me that I care too much. But I DON'T care.
    At least that's how I take it. But that's the beauty of Darren and Savage Garden. The song can mean something different to people, and it's still this incredible and interesting tune.

    Conversation with God (hayes) definitely has elements of this song in it.

    Bravissime, Savage Garden. This is one of my favorites of theirs, one of the purest sounding songs ever.
