"Stuck on an Island" as written by and Phair....
When I was young
I crashed the car
I tried to bend it back into shape
With a rake for a crowbar

I wasn't dumb
But I was so naive
I saw the signs
But I didn't believe them

Now it's dark
And I'm tired
All my messages got erased
And I don't know where my friends are

Tell me, who can I turn to when things are so blue?
You've got me crying over you

Dad was home
It was getting lighter
I knew he had to take it to work
In about a half an hour

I wasn't thinking clearly
It was like a panicking sweat gripped my body

And I was stuck on an island
On a cold November morning
Doing coke with Henry
And I totalled my car

Yes, I was stuck on an island
Wondering where my mind went
Getting a cold, wet shower
If I could just black out this hour
From time

Aloha, Doctor Phair

    General CommentThis is my go to wallowing song.

    It just sounds like a downward spiral, an exhausted, hedonistic mess of regrets and epiphanies and a lack of care/desire/wherewithal to fix anything.
