At Least I Have Nothing


Finally, I can be true to a cause.
I can be far from the money.
I can be free from all jobs.

And I know that sounds crazy
But everything does.
We’re all gonna die here.
At least we could try.

At least I have nothing.
Nothing to tie me down.
Not even someone.
I’ve got no more family in this town.

And I had such high hopes for the minds of our generation.
If we had some goals we could reach out and take them.

Finally, I've got nothing called home.
I know the true joy of sorrow.
Of which I’m sharing alone.

And I probably messed up,
Made a mistake.
At least it was mine.
At least I can say.

At least I have nothing.
Nothing to tie me down.
Not even someone.
I’ve got no more family in this town.

And I had such high hopes for the minds of our generation.
If we had some goals we could reach out and take them.
Instead we’re apart, no movement to follow.
We are just stuck inside their business model.

I’ll probably die here,
I probably will,
I’ll say it again.
I’ll scream it from hell.

At least I have nothing.
Nothing to tie me down.
Not even someone.
I’ve got no more family in this town.

And I had such high hopes for the minds of our generation.
If we had some goals we could reach out and take them.
Instead we’re apart, no movement to follow.
We are just stuck inside their business model.

    General CommentI think it's relatively literal. The protagonist is freed by having "nothing" showing a non-materialistic point of view towards everything. Ironically, they reach harmony by not having anything to tie them down. The song reminds me of Chris McCandless and Into the Wild by Jon Krakauer, very good book and also an excellent film.
