"Blowing It" as written by and Joseph Donald Jr. Mascis....
I've been thinking through the night
Everybody's so uptight
People hurt and that's their right
Cut 'em all loose, think I might

Stewin', hangin' out in town
And my head whirlin' around
Don't trust your mind, it'll let you down
Don't have a thing to go on

[Chorus:]
I don't know a thing to say to you [Repeat: x2]

There's a time and there's a place
It's not now, it's time to pace
Things I'd say but just can't face
All it means to say them

I could believe the things I feel
Then tomorrow get the same deal
Am I acting on something real?
Or am I blowing it again?

[Chorus: x2]

    General CommentAbout when
    uma left and everyone was sad and weren't smiling
    J: "Ever since Uma left nobody smiles anymore. The other day some guy lit himself on fire [on the comet?] and nobody even cared".

    General CommentIt sounds like realizing that your circle of friends has become tense and unlikable, so you decide to break loose and go your separate ways.

    My InterpretationI love J. Mascis but a lot of his songs are about the same thing -- alienation. This song fits it to a "t."
    "Things I'd say but just can't face
    All it means to say them "
    He'd like to tell people to get the hell out but "just can't face" doing it.
    "Am I acting on something real?
    Or am I blowing it again? "
    Unsure of what to do (surprise, surprise)...
