"On My Feet" as written by and Mark O. Everett....
One, two, three
Two, two, three

I am a man
In great pain over
Great beauty
It's not easy
Standing on my feet
These days

But you know I'm pretty sure that
I've been through worse
And I'm sure I can take the hit

I pushed the bed against the window today
So there'd only be one side
Well, it's a little less lonely that way
But I'm still dying inside

When I wake up
In the middle of the night
No one's gonna tell me
I'll be all right

So many thousands
Of days in my life
That I don't remember
And a small handful
Of days that I do
Hold near to my heart

And one of those days
That I remember well
Is about me and you

When it's time
To look back on my life
Most of it won't seem so important
The shit that matters
And what I'll really miss
Is falling asleep with your arms around me

Waking up knowing that you're there
Making everything feel right in the world

People sleeping
In Hazmat suits
Taping up their windows
It's a mad, mad, mad, mad, mad, mad world
And it's hard to make any sense of it

But one thing I know that is true in this world
Is the love that I felt for you

Being on my feet these days
Well, it's a wonder I survive
No one taught me how to live on my own
I'm running scared

One sweet day I'll be back on my feet
And I'll be all right

I just gotta get
Back on my feet

    General CommentWhat can you say? In continuation with E's theme in albums, he ends with an uplifting song. This isn't as obviously uplifting as P.S. You Rock My World or Somebody Loves You, but it still gives hope: "One sweet day I'll be back on my feet/And I'll be alright."

    And in continuation with everything else E has ever done: Beautiful.
