Life's been sucked out of me
And this routine's killing me
I did it to myself
Again I said this would not be
Somebody put me out of my misery
Expression, stimulation
Hollow sense of myself
I did it to myself again
Somebody put me in my place

Never enough, Never enough
Do I deserve what I got?

Now everything's okay
There's nothing wrong with me
This seems unnatural
To me I'd say in every way
Somebody kick me in the face
Now something's wrong with me
I'm bleeding profusely
And this seems natural
To me I fuck up everyday
Somebody put me in my place

Never enough, Never enough
Do I deserve what I got?
Never enough, Never enough
Do I deserve what I got?
What I got, what I got
What I got, what I got

I feel as if I'm running
Back to where I started
You ask what's wrong with me
And I say nothing
Is everything okay?
Is something wrong with me?
Pushing and pulling feelings
Eternal my heart is yours
I feel as if I'm running
I feel as if I'm running
I feel as if I'm running
Run
Life will knock me down!

Never enough, Never enough
Do I deserve what I got?
Never enough, Never enough
Life will knock me down!

    Have you ever seen the video for when P-Roach performed this song at MTV's 5-Night Stand?

    Jacoby SCREAMS "Down" at the end of the song as loud as he can, and throws up everywhere...

    i doubt this is a sequal to Blood Brothers...this song reminds me of how it feels to have learning disabilities (ADD included, which coby and his bro have).

    My favourite on the album. The line 'Somebody put me out of my misery' just makes me feel so sorry for the plight Coby seems to be in. I feel it is to do with life's mistreatments and how it makes people feel. Powerful song.

    some alterations to the lyrics lol....

    'i did it to myself, again i said this would not be'

    'Somebody put me out of my misery Expression, stimulation, HOLLOW SENSE OF MYSELF'

    This song is so good, his voice is fucking brilliant! this song is about how he has felt so strange inside and not normal for so long that the times when he feel 'happy' it isnt right to him and its unnatuaral (as is said) i get this song.. its my song

    for me this song is about self-injury. the routine that's killing him is hurting himself. people recognize that he's very depressed or maybe even see his scars and cuts and they ask if everything is ok with him. he doesn't want to admit that he's got a problem so he just says he's ok ang goes on hurting himself

    My Interpretation

    I think is about disorder of anxiety, fear and how we blame our selfs every time, people that's suffer of anxiety do exactly what the song says "I did it to my self again"

Love in a Vacuum
'Til Tuesday
Well, in my opinion this song is about being a young & maybe a little naive &/or introverted girl and finding yourself loving a man who is at first very charming, carefree & outgoing, and seems at first to be without limits, as in "There was a time you opened up every doorway you didn't mind if everything wasn't your way" then that man starts to gradually become more introverted & shows their more possessive/obsessive side to you as the relationship progresses, even while they keep up the appearance of being carefree & outgoing to everyone else, "Don't pull away that goes against what you told me I look in your eyes I realize what you've sold me is love in a vacuum" so you confront them about the way they're acting and of course they deny it, "I think you've changed but you insist that that's not true" quite possibly they are an addict of some sort, my guess would be cocaine, &/or showing very obsessive behavior towards you (early on in the video for this song we see the man hanging a picture up, it is a very large portrait of Aimee & it is prominently displayed in his/their apartment for the duration of the song), thus their "love in a vacuum", "You look so strange, so distant that you're hardly you Now I can see how you have been acting different You say it's me but I know that it isn't it's love in a vacuum" but still you are in love with them and don't want to leave them and you know that they are truly in love with you and they don't want you to leave them either, maybe they are convinced you can save them from themself, maybe they are so broken that the possibility of an overdose &/or suicide attempt is very real and you want to get through to them that their behavior not only dangerous but it is also just pissing you off and if they don't wise up they run the risk of loosing you, as in the lines "You will be lonely if you leave me alone", so you want to save them but can't get through to them due to the addiction &/or emotional problems they have, "Love in a vacuum and that's not enough love in a vacuum You will be lonely you'll be the only one who feels this way You will be lonely if you leave me alone You will be lonely you'll be the only one who feels this way it's just not enough" you want them to understand that the love they are giving you is not enough when it is filtered through the vacuum of their drug addiction &/or emotional impairment, "You will be lonely you'll be the only one who feels this way it's just not enough and just wait you will be lonely Love in a vacuum Love in a vacuum and that's not enough Love in a vacuum". 'Love In A Vacuum' for me is a hauntingly truthful acute argument on the loneliness of obsession and almost inevitable loss of love that follows people who are broken in some way or another; the obsessives, the coke heads, the drunks, addicts or the just-plain-old emotionally broken; a razor sharp, lyrically driven, deceptively poppy, yet ultimately-depressing-in-the-best-way song. Quintessential Aimee Mann.

Warren wanted a Beach Boys thing for this one, and Carl Wilson and Billy Hinsche came in, with Carl arranging the vocal parts. The other harmony vocalists (credited as the "Gentlemen Boys") were Jackson Browne, J.D. Souther, Zevon's longtime backers Waddy Wachtel and Jorge Calderon, and Linda Rondstadt/Stone Poneys guitarist Kenny Edwards.

I think much like another song “Anti-Matter” (that's also on the same album as this song), this one is also is inspired by a horrifying van crash the band experienced on Nov 3, 2022. This, much like the other track, sounds like it's an extension what they shared while huddled in the wreckage, as they helped frontman Garrett Russell stem the bleeding from his head wound while he was under the temporary effects of a concussion. The track speaks of where the mind goes at the most desperate & desolate of times, when it just about slips away to all but disconnect itself, and the aftermath.
