"Discarded" as written by and Jay Farrar Jeff Tweedy....
These lines don't work on me
They won't on you
Didn't knew the cards were on the table

Just can't stand to see things turn out wrong no way to make things right
Never promise anything anymore

So god damn hard to make it work
No easy way out of this one
Always someone or something
To get lost in the shuffle
At least this road leads straight out of here

Adversity is stable
And life in front of you
Discarded, recycled and new

Just can't stand to see things turn out wrongno way to make things right
Never promise anything anymore

So god damn hard to make it work
No easy way out of this one
Always someone or something
To get lost in the shuffle
At least this road leads straight out of here

Just can't stand to see things turn out wrong no way to make things right
Never promise anything anymore

Someone or something to get lost in the shuffle, at least this road leads straight out of here

Too late to go back
Sorry needs to be said
But there's really nothing now to do

    General CommentSounds like a relationship, or whatever the hell you'd call it that I just got out of last month, and my perspective in the end. I don't even know what the hell we were. The best way it can be described is that we were just two of the most incompatible people on the face of this whole planet. Plain and simple. Putting it another way, it's like getting a left-wing extremist Democrat, and a right-wing extremist Republican in the same room together. Turn off the Air Conditioning, provide no refreshments, lock all the doors, and let the political banter begin. Eventually, no matter how good things start, how optimistic, it will get personal. A line will be crossed, and once you're there, there's no turning back. Under pressure, on the spot, you will find people out for who they really are. Always. And so it went. And even though I believe I was largely right in my situation, I could've gone back, been submissive, apologized for my role in things... but why? What would it accomplish? Just stay on the road that "leads straight out of here." That's all you can do for the sake of sanity.

    And what about the future? That is perhaps the easiest one. At least as far as saying it. Look before you leap, never promise anything. There's always "someone or something to get lost in the shuffle." That has always been, and always will be true. If I'd realized that sooner, I wouldn't be in the mess I was in.
