"Said the People" as written by and Joseph Donald Mascis Jr.....
I've been staring, I've been staring in the space
All this time, not a smile, such a waste,
I don't wanna, I don't wanna know
I cant tell you, I just have to go

[Chorus: x4]
All the people
All the people drag me down
All the people
All the people that I know
Save me (4x)

Bring me something, bring me something I can eat
Well here's one thing, but it's not the one I chose
I can't help it, hope you show up soon
I can't help it, I coming home with you (?)

[Chorus: x4]

Can you tell me, can you tell me what went wrong
Guess I should have seen it coming all along
Gotta fight it, I gotta be strong
There gotta be something, you let it drag on and on

[Chorus: x4]

    General Commentpretty sure these are more accurate

    I've been staring, I've been staring into space
    Always tired, not a smile, such a waste
    I don't wanna, I don't want to know
    I cant tell you, I just have to go

    Of all the people
    Of all the people who let me down

    Of all the people
    Of all the people...why now?

    Say to me
    Say to me
    Save me
    Save me

    Bring me something, bring me something I can use
    Well here's one thing, but it's not the one I choose
    I can't help it, hope you show up soon
    I can't help it, I'm counting on you

    Of all the people
    Of all the people to let me down
    Of all the people
    Of all the people...why now?

    Say to me
    Say to me
    Save me
    Save me

    Can you tell me, can you tell me what went wrong?
    Guess I should have seen it coming all along
    Gotta fight it, I gotta be strong
    I gotta do something, can't let it drag on and on

    Of all the people
    Of all the people to let me down
    Of all the people
    Of all the people...why now?

    Say to me
    Say to me
    Save me
    Save me

    "Of all the people to let me down... why now?"

    Seems they always do and always when you need them the most.

    People ain't no good.

    My InterpretationSounds like the narrator's blaming other people for the way his life's turned out. When he says 'Bring me something, bring me something I can use
    Well here's one thing, but it's not the one I choose', it sounds like opportunities are presenting themselves but he's not taking them because it isn't exactly what he wanted, so he's waiting. 'Of all the people to let me down' might be him finally realising he's responsible.
