III. OK Hangover

My god.
I woke up on the floor of a famous Minneapolis rapper (whose name will go unmentioned.)
I didn't crush the cat.
No one wrote "dick" on my forehead.
I wasn't seeing stars, I was seeing cigarettes and 1990's compact discs.
I didn't even feel depressed like every other day that I wake up.

I wouldn't trade it for the world, I would trade it for way less.
Just a parking spot and a place to call my home.
I'm always waking up hating that life ain't perfect
Despite what they say, my mistakes AREN'T worth it
But fuck it, I got through today.
I can get through tomorrow.

We lost a tire, but we put it back on.
I lost the love of my life, holy shit, I got a better one.
I lost a couple of my favorite shirts and favorite friends.
I lost my favorite band.
I feel like I have lost my mind and people tell me "this is fine."
Still, I feel shitty every time I try to fall asleep at night.

I wouldn't trade it for the world, I would trade it for way less.
Just a parking spot and a place to call my home.
I'm always making mistakes that are never worth it
Despite what they say, I hate that life ain't perfect.
But fuck it, I got through today.
I got a few more tomorrows.

And everyday I wake and smile but by day's end my smile subsides.
But I guess I'll be here a while and I'll smile through today, 'cause last night I didn't die.

IV. Cecil Otter Tattoo

And I know I'm not dead because I just threw up in my own mouth and swallowed back.
This hangover ain't that bad.

I feel worse just about every day, but James Brown must have sparked a change
Somewhere in our dialogue about sleep, hardcore and not being young.

Got it drilled in my leg
Because I fucked my head.
When I'm all alone, I will always have one friend.

When I wish I was dead
And I hate my friends
I must repeat this 'til the end.
I still have a home even if my home's a van.

When I wish I was dead
And I hate my friends
I must repeat this 'til the end.
I still have a home even if my home's a van.
You still have a home even if your home's a van.
I still have a home.
I still have a home even if my home's a van.

    General CommentYes... but... who cares? Since you can find the meaning behind this song on the quoteunquote page and this one's also kinda obvious, the only thing left to say here is: AMAZING SONG!!! I like to put it after the first two parts in Winamp to listen to the entire song. Just perfect!

    General CommentI love how Jeff has this emotional connection with his van, like it's something for him to hold onto. He seems like he's been through a lot of pretty shitty stuff.
    When I begin to hate everyone around me I drive around and sing this song.
