Ritual Lyrics (by Oyster Boy)
I spent the day trying to fix myself; I should have spent it doing something else. I should have put my Titus record on. I should have maybe tried to write a song. And in an hour I’ll be dead asleep, but I’m afraid of what’s been in my dreams; the kind of dirty stories you could sell to magazines that comment on your health. It makes me wonder if I might need help. So you thought that you were special? Me too. So you thought that you were something? Me too. So you thought that you were free? Me too. Bob Dylan smashed his autoharp. Scott Fitzgerald’s crying out in the dark. In a decade it will all be gone. In a minute you’ll forget this song. And that twinkle in Jeff Mangum’s eye will one day curl up in a ball and die. It gets me thinking Is it just too late? But I’m too stubborn to accept my fate; I’ll go down looking it right in the face! So you thought that you were special? Me too. So you thought that you were something? Me too. So you thought that you were free?
