"Generation X-Wing" as written by Matthew Good and Dave Genn....
Venus was a fly trap
The man you loved devoured
I used to dream about your sister
Standing in the shower
But I was never cool
You thought I was a cowboy
I wonder where my gun is
Can you spare a bullet senorita?

I will always be the worst
Generation X-wing
That's got to be the death star
I used to dream about the future
I used to dream about a lot of things
But I was never cool
So you can call me loser
Yeah you can call me anything
You want to senorita

I will always be the worst
Help me up with
A pair of wings
A little rope
All those things
She always said I'd find the cure for cancer
I read my horoscope but I just can't pull it off alone

Venus was a fly trap
The man you loved devoured
I used to dream about your sister
Fucking me in the shower
But I was never cool
So you can call me loser
Yeah you can call me anything
You want to senorita

I will always be the worst

    General Commentthis song was realeased on the 5 track cd "raygun" in 1997, i think it is about how he is a loser in his own mind. but he used to think it was going to get better, now he just accepted it, and doesen't care.

    General CommentIt's a song about a person that knows they are a loser, but they don't care. Pretty much how I accept myself.

    General CommentI think the thoughts on this song so far have taken parts of the song as obviously as possible, and ignored other parts.

    Certainly there stands something to be said for not feeling like you're good enough, but the line about being a loser comes on the heals of "the man you loved devoured". It seems a sort of testament to not being who he once was.

    Then there's the blatant cry for help of "help me up with a pair of wings..."

    This song is so much more than self-pity and self-loathing. Certainly, there may be elements of those feelings, but it seems like a self-reflection that runs much deeper than that.

    I'd love to hear Matt's comments on this song though.

    General CommentI think this is a song about getting dumped.
    Love is soul crushing and it tore a piece of said person apart.
    He feels like a shadow of what he once was when she loved him.
    She made him feel better than he saw himself, and her only felt that way cause of her, now he see's himself completely negatively.
    The part about the sister I would think would be something about how he was never satisfied and looking back he should of been cause he just bever realized what she meant till she was gone.

    Thats not the best interpretation I'll admit but you get the point. Only Matt knows.
