"Mr. Me" as written by and John S./flansburgh Linnell....
I want to say I learned something valuable today
Alas, my murdered remains are incapable of learning anything
Trusted you
I should have never trusted you
In fact I never did
What's the use
I'm not complaining
I'm not anything

Is this what's supposed to happen
When you're only trying to do right in this wicked world?
Probably I should already know this
Probably I should graciously accept what I get

Most people wouldn't hang the corpses up for review
Dearest, I can only hope most people are nothing like you
Nervous tics
That I pretended not to see
That's how I was brought up
Warning signs
Death metal albums
"Hang in there, baby" poster

Is this how you thank somebody
For their selfless loyalty? Is this what you do?
Pardon me for failing to grasp how this works
Excuse my breathtaking ignorance

Is this what's supposed to happen
When you're only trying to do right in this wicked world?
Probably I should already know this
Probably I should graciously accept what I get

    General CommentI love this song. When my younger brother was two or three, h used to say things were "sad" when he didn't like them. That's what this song reminds me of with the "He ended up really, really, really sad."

    General CommentThis song is just Mr. cool. I mean, I challenge anyone to provide a better Mr. sea shanty-esque song.

    My InterpretationI always thought this song was about a hippy type who did drugs to get closer to the collective unconscious, thinking it would bring him deeper understanding of the mind.

    So he dove in (did alot of drugs) but realized that he didn't gain any deep understanding, and the misty sea was too deep and vast for him to explore it all.

    So he'd wasted his time and he got depressed knowing that he'd never gain the deep understanding he expected.
