With all of my might,
With all of my might I do this.
It's a waste of my time to pursue this.
I'm so full of self-indulgence to think that you'd like this song.

Jot it down and I stuck it in the basement,
Underneath the living room floor.
For some reason I don't think I'm gonna make it.
For some reason I don't think about it anymore.

Get so bored with the radio, bored with the video.
You've got to make a _______, just to let'em know.
______________________________________________

With all of my might,
With all of my might I do this.
It's a waste of my time to pursue this.
I'm so fucked self-indulgent to think you'd like this song.

    General Comment"For some reason I don't think I'm gonna make it / For some reason I don't think about it anymore." Now that, my friends, is some ofthe best lyric writing i have heard in a while.

    Im my opinion, this song is about trying so hard and perhaps finally giving up.

    By the way, i haven't been able to either find or decipher the two lines that are missing there. If anyone does, I would be interested.

    General Commentjust trying to write a song, but also any work of art and you kinda keep it secret and you just want some relevance in the world

    General CommentI hear:

    "Get so bored with your radio, bored with your video
    You've got to mock your power, just to let 'em know
    You've got to mock your thing just to mock my thing"


    If I've got the "your" bit right then it becomes really knowing, like you've got to criticize yourself before anyone else can do it. Or it's about not caring about success or status or anything, making sure that people know you're better than that.

    Pretty much all their songs are about the indie scene anyway, and this is just like a more personal version of that
