"Dog's Life" as written by and Mark O. Everett....
What would you say if I left this town tomorrow
I guess I would
But know I'd miss the train
I know I would

I'll take a dog's life
Just layin' in the sun
I'll take a dog's life
'cause I don't care for this one

Chasing trains and planes and rain
Where is my rain
Falling down upon a thirsty world
I never want to be the same

Another time I might have fit in alright
But not this time
I guess I'm just too soon
To change my tune

I'll take a dog's life
Just layin' in the sun
I'll take a dog's life
'cause I don't care for this one

Chasing trains and planes and rain
Where is my rain
Falling down upon a thirsty world
I never want to be the same

    General CommentThis song makes me think of my cat. If only I could afford to live a simple, carefree life like his. Hopefully, the alien overlords will make me their pet cat.

    General CommentSays E of this song:

    "This was written in the late 1980s when I first moved from Virginia to Los Angeles. I was so lonely and, well... miserable. I lived near the Burbank airport, which I later learned was a neighborhood full of poisoned water from the Lockheed plant. I'd go for runs to burn off nervous energy and one day I was running by this dog laying in his yard. I felt a wave of envy. I wanted his carefree life. I recorded the song on my four track cassette recorder in my closet that night. This version was recorded with Jon Brion several years later in the same Silver Lake house we finished My Beloved Monster in."
