I suppose this is my 'grunge' song. A bit of a downer, but I'm actually quite fond of it.

Lyrics
[Recorded in 1996 but written in '93, when I'd just returned to Edmonton and a decidedly humdrum lifestyle, was obsessed with Radiohead's 'Creep', and wallowing in my own misery. This dirge came about as a result of that. If nothing else, it serves as a good reminder to myself that everything wasn't always so much better 'back in the day'. I should say also that while the sentiment of the song was genuine at the time I wrote it, this later recording of it is pure theatre. This was actually one of the happiest times of my life; I'd just graduated theatre school with a great gaggle of friends, we were in the process of forming our own company, and I was madly in love with an amazing and beautiful girl... hardly things to be bawling about. But still I thought this song had merit, and should be preserved. Mind you this was also the 90s, when 'misery rock' was very much in vogue.] so, locked out again i should have seen this coming now here we are, at the end i don't know why i thought this would be different it's the classic symptom, i feel so good ready to seize the advantage, and i know that i could but then i start thinking i can't stop thinking please leave me alone and let me be proud of this insignificant life, for it's all i'm allowed but no, i'm always thinking i can't stop thinking forgive me, forget me i'm gone something was in my room last night its tracks lead into the street i never follow them i lie here, waiting to be shaken and pulled i am the raft upon which the dead pilgrims lie pointless, lost, my head heavy with tears i can't cry i've grown so tired of blaming myself but there's been no one else here since i don't know when and i couldn't care if i see the sun again but then i start thinking i can't stop thinking please leave me alone and let me be proud of this insignificant life, for it's all i'm allowed but no, i'm always thinking i can't stop thinking forgive me, forget me i'm gone i'm gone i can't take it anymore i can't take it anymore i can't take it anymore but i do
