It’s been years now;
I’m calling off the search for myself.
I think I'm comfortable with "uneasy"
Is there something that could teach me?
I’ve heard perspective comes in handy,
but I'm not sure from where I’m standing
'Cause I’m still sick with passions and inaction,
Experiments in loss studied and practiced.
but not too cool to care.
And I feel ill trading toxins for talking.
Wrestling with doubt,
well, it's all about shadowboxing.
So don’t come a-knocking,
this boy is up rocking,
arms around his knees
on a bare mattress/boxspring
Rode home too high
shouting “I Hate Myself and I Wanna Die”
from 86'd in '03,
released July 25, 2014
Written by Ben Potrykus, who also played guitar and sang. Andy Sadoway played drums and bass. Recorded by Matt Beaudoin at Q Division Studios in Somerville, MA in April 2014. Released on lathecut picture disc plexi in a limited edition of 75 by People In A Position To Know Records.
I’ve seen Fat Creeps a few times and I always relished when they played 700 Parts. The ending is like arriving in Heaven after living a good life. What I would give to be in another audience when they played it again. Beautiful song from a wonderful band
