"Pretty Pimpin" as written by and Kurt Samuel Vile....
I woke up this morning
Didn’t recognize the man in the mirror
Then I laughed and I said, "Oh silly me, that’s just me"
Then I proceeded to brush some stranger’s teeth
But they were my teeth, and I was weightless
Just quivering like some leaf come in the window of a restroom
I couldn’t tell you what the hell it was supposed to mean
But it was a Monday, no, a Tuesday
No, a Wednesday, Thursday, Friday
Then Saturday came around and I said
"Who’s this stupid clown blocking the bathroom sink?"

All he ever wanted was to be someone in life that was just like
All I want is to just have fun, live my life like a son of a gun
I could be one thousand miles away but still mean what I say

Then I woke up one morning
Didn’t recognize the man in the mirror
Then I laughed and I said, “Oh silly me, that’s just me”
Then I proceeded to not comb some stranger’s hair
Never was my style
But I couldn’t tell you what the hell it was supposed to mean
'Cause it was a Monday, no, a Tuesday
No, a Wednesday, Thursday, Friday
Then Saturday came around and I said
“Who’s this stupid clown blocking the bathroom sink?”
But he was sporting all my clothes
I gotta say, pretty pimpin'

All he ever wanted was to be a man
But he was always a little too cute to be admitted under marbles lost
He was always a thousand miles away while still standing in front of your face

Then he woke up this morning
Didn’t recognize the boy in the mirror
Then laughed and said, “Oh silly me, that’s just me”
Then I proceeded to brush some stranger’s teeth
But they were my teeth, and I was weightless
Just quivering like some leaf come in the window of a restroom
And I couldn’t tell you what the hell it was supposed to mean
'Cause it was a Monday, no, a Tuesday
No, a Wednesday, Thursday, Friday
Then Saturday came around and I said
"Who’s this stupid clown blocking the bathroom sink?"
But he was sporting all my clothes
I gotta say, pretty pimpin'

I woke up this morning, didn’t recognize the boy in the mirror
I woke up this morning, didn’t recognize the boy in the mirror
I woke up this morning, didn’t recognize the boy in the mirror
I woke up this morning, didn’t recognize the boy in the mirror
I woke up this morning, didn’t recognize the boy in the mirror
I woke up this morning, didn’t recognize the boy in the mirror

    My InterpretationIt's about exhaustion. When you're startled by the man or woman in the mirror, it's a bad sign and often an effective wake up call which means you need to wake up and look at something that made you mentally exhausted.

    Song MeaningIt's about being a man who can stand up to criticism. Also seeing yourself in the mirror as a stranger. Then thinking you are dressed somewhat OK (pretty pimping).

    My InterpretationThis is a song about finding yourself and having the strength to be it in the face of adversity.

    All of our lives we're told who to be, and until we decide it for ourselves, we'll continue to be somebody else. And then when you find the true you, and the past you fails to recognize it, It won't matter, because you'll know who are really are, and you'll like it
