What's it about: someone not understanding how and why they are who they are


Sucking at life
Sucking at life
Can’t get it right
Fucked up this life
Something ain’t right
Down on my life

Cram it Dammit
They say it’s my attitude
Damaged dammit
Could be my point view
I’m damaged
Why am I always rude?


Such a catastrophe
The epitome of agony
Cram it
What’s the point of me

Unaccepted by society
Values lost and morals not valued
Nights are so lonely
Super hyper focused on things that don’t even matter
I lost my job and anyone close to me.

Dammit dammit


Slam it Damn it
What’s the point of me
Cram it dammit
Nothing saved
Waking up, why do I have to?
No one to love
Soaked in pain

Something ain’t right
Can’t get it right
Fucked up my life

A punk blues pulpiteer whose holy trinity is Strummer, Ramone, and Thunders. A mysterious stickman with a hardcore soul and a trash can beat. Put 'em together and what do you get? Critical Response. Sound the alarm! ... more
