Chin Music for the Unsuspecting Hero

I originally wanted to write about many things regarding my new routines here in Manchester.

Today I walked through the door and fell down on my floor

Got all of my papers out and read them

Seems that I’ve been wanderin’ for a little too long

Yeah, the desert can be hot if you’re wasted

Took a stab in the dark and missed again I believe

The hardest part is not seein’ what I used to see

My faith grew to a top but worry does all it can

To whisper in both my ears make-believe stories

But sometimes, it’s best not to add much to something that is already beautiful.

Where are my friends now?

They’re not around when I need them

I cannot pretend

I find myself against all the odds again

Such as music, particularly this song by Foster the People, titled Chin Music for the Unsuspecting Hero.

Well I like to think I’m strong and then I’m proven wrong

Grab the keys to my car and go to work again

Yeah showed up late, got screamed in my face

Turn around, I’m punch drunk, but I’m laughin’

Got some thoughts in my chest, they’re playin’ games with my head

Ten hours of sleep, I’m in my bed again

Scream up to my God, say, “I do what I can”

How am I gonna move on from this circumstance?

It’s not about how ungrateful I am with my new life. I wanted to show, through this song, my gratitude towards the unsuspecting hero of my life: myself. And you should thank yourself as well.

Where are my friends now?

They’re not around when I need them

I cannot pretend

I find myself against all the odds again
