|Listen to the Song:
I wonder who the hell you think you are
You’ve really taken this thing too far this time
You don’t have the looks and you don’t make us dance
For you the pursuit of happiness is a crime
You’re not with the norm, you can’t come along
No matter how hard we try, we can’t make us sad
We’ll bring out your faults to cover our own
‘Cause you can’t trade your visions with me
Working so hard to keep my feet on the ground
Am I really so bad or is that just what you say?
I’ve really come far, just open your eyes
I don’t ask for much, my needs are small
You can’t trade your visions with me

Analysis: A very moody folk song with desperate vocals and lyrics which speak of frustration, projection, and yes, discouragement. Musically, the mix is a little weak when the bass and drums kick in, but otherwise a pleasant listen.
