"Sorry For Myself" as written by Jann Arden Richards and Russell Andrew Broom....
I've been on my hands and knees
Crawling towards eternity
Looking for the piece of me that always got away
And I've been so afraid to stand my ground
So I simply shut my mouth
Close my eyes, bite my lip
And swallow every tear

I can't do anything
I don't believe in anyone
I just feel sorry for myself all day long
All day long

Look inside my body baby
See the twists and turns inside me
Every blinding curve that drives you right around the bend
I know you've had it up to there with all my chaos and confusion
I am living a delusion and I do not give a damn

I can't do anything
I don't need anybody else
I just feel sorry for myself
For myself
For myself
For myself

Look into my heart and tell me I am a complete disaster
Wasn't that what you were after
Always thought it was
Wasn't I complete desire
Filthy ash without the fire
You could not have been much higher without some kind of drug

I can't do anything
I don't believe in anyone
I just feel sorry for myself…for myself
I can't do anything
I don't need anybody else
I just feel sorry for myself
All day long
I can't do anything
I don't believe in anyone
I just feel sorry for myself…for myself
I can't do anything
I don't need anybody else
I just feel sorry for myself

    General CommentFor some reason I always interpreted this song as being tongue-in-cheek.

    Or perhaps even bitter....like she's realized that she's been doing these things, and knows that it's useless. That the world is much larger than her own problems.

    Given the other songs on the album (Another Human Being, or Piece Of It All for example...) I'd have to stick with that idea.

    General CommentThis part:
    i know you’ve had it up to there with all my chaos and confusion
    i am living a delusion and i do not give a damn"
    is so good. I know I've chosen to live in delusions instead of reality.
