"Despair Came Knocking" as written by and Daniel Johnston....
Despair came knocking
At my door
And I let her in
For a while
She sat on the couch
In the end, smoking
She said nothing
Suddenly I felt tired
I began to feel tired
And all of the sudden,
the room seemed dizzy and dirty
Despair came knocking
And I let her in
For a while

    General CommentYou can't help but be completely still when you listen to this song...
    It's petrifying and so real it makes you feel exactly how he does in the song.
    It just paints a picture, and my, so accurate.
    I dig the gloomy Daniel.
