Named after the essay by Roland Barthes.
If you want to hear them to music you can hear the song on our sound cloud: http://soundcloud.com/admit-it

I've got all these problems
with all these people,
but what am I going to do
yeah me and all my friends
we're coming get you
all of us
all two

I have no means just an end,
but from somewhere deep in my head
a voice is saying boy you're gonna be
something big
my idols wont let me rest
they whisper "listen in, listen in"

"we were born to be tortured souls
cutting ties doesn't cut any holes for us"
they're not asking I'm being told
to suffer on, suffer on
you don't know how it feels

home sweet home is a place I've never known,
and my pain is not for me, it's for everybody
I'd bet everything I own that I'd have nothing to show
for my bitching and moaning
I'll ask you to loan me some cash

help me out, I've got excuses, I've got doubts
I'm not allowed to stop now

I've got all these problems
that go unaddressed
all my life I've wanted death
terrifying visions of the past are present
at all times
scorching my skull they said

"you were born as a sick, sad joke
you can't afford to join the fold"
they're not asking I'm being told
to suffer on, suffer on

you don't know how it feels to be
flying fist first down a spiral
destination: inevitable to
"we don't talk about him anymore"

home sweet home is a place I've never known,
and my pain is not for me, it's for everybody
I'd bet everything I own that I'd have nothing to show
for my bitching and moaning
I'll ask you to loan me some cash
could you loan me some cash?

I could see a shrink, I could sell my pills
I could study hard and drop out, despite my skills
I could stay with one girl and lose my mind
I could hide in my apartment and waste all of my time.

needs more reference to the constant rebirth of meaning occurring simultaneously with a critics reading of a text.

Haha Yeah it could definitely have a little more Barthes in it. I just threw the title in as an obscure unrelated reference. Good to see that someone knows their Marxist linguists though.

I read this essay for my English degree, ha. Yes the title doesn't seem to have anything to do with content, which is fine if you want it that way

I guess I shouldn't say I named it after the essay. It works in a more literal sense, and I kind of just ripped off Barthes for his title. At least it will get the attention of fellow English majors.
