"I Can't Win" as written by and Julian Casablancas....
That was you upon the mountain
All alone and all surrounded
Walking on the ground you're breaking
Laughing at the life you're wasting
One, two, a jive won't do it
You do it on your left,
and you'll never get through it
Everything you'll have to see
Dinner isn't just one day

Good try, we don't like it
Good try, we won't take that shit
Oh, I can't win

Things in bars that people do
And no one wants to talk to you
Feeling can be quite a breeze
You told me that these girls were easy
Happy that you said you know me
Felt unlucky when you found me
Some of us come up empy handed
Yes, I'll take it

Wait now, by the sidewalk
Hold on, yes I'll be right back
Oh, I can't win

Yeah, I wait for something
Cool it, we won't take that shit
Good try, we don't like it
Oh, yes I'll be right back

    General CommentI see this as the ending to a story. The whole album has this "getting over you" feel to it, and this is the end. He's saying "I give up, I can't win." He finally decides it's time to move on and stop thinking about it.
