about

This song certainly didn't help the situation.

lyrics

so useless to you
son of someone else
you stuck around long enough
to sort that out
and you’re not used to me
and you’ve heard that song
you don’t want to sing along
so useless to you
came out broke and strange
you couldn’t help but scorn the mouth
foreign in taste
no, it’s not new to me
this look
disappointment gave callously
make it work
beholden to you
the vows were tools
lay broken with weakness
where are you?
you should’ve died
where are you?
nobody’s dead
where are you?
so useless to you
stand for shame and guilt
I was there long after
it went to hell
you’re not used to me
and you’ll hate this song
you don’t want to sing alone
because you’re tone deaf
I think all of you are tone deaf
I was born among the tone deaf
