bent down in rusted metal
gritty shrapnel brown too weathered
when did I get this old?
bum leg with bruises shaking
pour another cup of joe
sweat dripping down in the dirt
stink like the old shop floor
I built a lot of shit with my life
jesus
jeezus
I'm rust

    General Commentthis is amazingly similar, lyrically, anyway, to king crimson's "dig me," a first-person account of a car rusting away in a junkyard:

    in groping for an overarching theme, i want to go to something like the end of the american manufacturing economy and, by extension, perhaps globalization, but none of that stuff is really here (apart, perhaps, for the sample about "capitalist sin"), though it permeates many other grotus songs. perhaps lars was just having a rough morning and decided to make a song out of it.
