"A Slight Discomfort" as written by and Craig Finn Tad Jason Kubler....
I thought you're through with all the bougie guys, don't you wonder about the other side?
They only get invited 'cause they think that they might buy
Ain't it sad about these metro guys, don't it hurt to watch them moisturize?
They're never funny and they're all so scared to die

We're not afraid, we have our faith
We've seen scattered action and we've mostly come out unscathed
We'll be alright, we'll get through the night
Our struggle still feels wonderful most days, most days

Don't it suck about the succubi, the bloodsuckers and the parasites?
They're never funny and they're all so scared to die
All the small talk seems like suicide, the spiderwebs with the legs and eggs and eyes
They creep up from behind

If I were you I wouldn't get too close
I've seen how they eat and it gets pretty gross
They slip their tongue and they hitch onto their host

We're not afraid, we have our faith
Seen a couple slaughters and they mostly turned out okay
We'll be alright, we'll get through the night
Our struggle still feels wonderful most days

Hey New York City, I love it when you turn on your lights
Our struggle still feels wonderful tonight

And you say you're a princess
But I remain unconvinced
I've seen the guys that you've been with
They don't much like princes

And you say you're much better
But I don't quite believe it
I saw the girls that you came with
I saw the guy that you left with

And you say you tried Jesus but it was too inconvenient
You just didn't have the patience
You say you said prayers but it felt like there was nobody there
I didn't think that you'd get it

This shouldn't hurt
But you might feel a slight discomfort
This shouldn't hurt
But you might feel a slight discomfort

This shouldn't hurt
But you might feel a slight discomfort
This shouldn't hurt
But you might feel a slight discomfort

    General CommentIs this evidence of Holly's much anticipated fall from grace after redemption at the end of Seperation Sunday?

    My OpinionThere's so much empathy and judgement in this song. It feels very much like caring for someone who is their own worst enemy and their destiny is determined by the people they want to spend their time with.

    My OpinionI think this song continues on with the theme of drugs that The Hold Steady commonly sings about...

    Bougie guys, Metro guys = guys she would use for drugs

    They're never funny and they're all so scared to die = They aren't cool to hang out with and they are afraid if they do hard drugs they will OD

    Our struggle still feels wonderful most days = The struggle to find their fix, most days it feels good stil... Once you do hard drugs for awhile you dont feel as good from them, you need to take them just to get by.

    This shouldn't hurt but you might feel a slight discomfort = What a Dr. says before he sticks a needle into a patient.
