"Everyman Needs a Companion" as written by and Joshua Michael Tillman....
Every man needs a companion
Someone to turn his thoughts to
I know I do
Every man needs a companion
Someone to console him
Like I need you

Oh, oh
John the baptist took Jesus Christ
Down to the river on a Friday night
They talked about Mary like a couple of boys
With nothing to lose
Too scared to try

Every man needs a companion
Someone to turn his thoughts to
I know I do
Every man needs a companion
Someone to console him
Like I need you, oh

Oh, oh
Joseph Campbell and The Rolling Stones
Couldn't give me a myth
So I had to write my own
Like I'm hung up on religion
Though I know it's a waste
I never liked the name Joshua
I got tired of J

Everyman needs a companion
Someone to console him
Like I need you, oh
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh

    General Comment"I never liked the name Joshua, I got tired of J..."

    It totally gutted me that he ended the album like that. Basically what the whole Father John Misty thing is about: self-loathing, self-deprecation, self-frustration, and realizing how selfish it is to have all that emotion directed at no one but yourself.
