about

This week’s song is about the pitfalls of stubbornness. This is something that I know a lot about because I’ve been stubborn my whole life. The problem with stubbornness is that it is an isolating stance. You’ve got to budge for somebody, or after a while nobody is likely to budge for you. Reliance on friends and family has been a running thread on this site for a while, and particularly lately. This song insists that if you take the isolating stance you are doomed, and at the last minute you’ll know you’re wrong, which for a stubborn person is the worst imaginable fate. It is better to soften you’re position along the way and be right about the big stuff.

lyrics

Answer to
Answer to
No one else

Compromise
Compromise
Nothing at all

Acquiesce
Acquiesce
Never again

Think about
Think about
What you done

Nothing, it’s nothing, it’s nothing
It’s everyone
Nothing, it’s nothing, it’s nothing
It’s everyone else

But your mind starts to go
‘Cause you’re thinking too fast
And maybe you’re wrong
Or maybe it’s, Maybe it’s, Maybe it’s
Everyone
Or maybe it’s, Maybe it’s, Maybe it’s
Everyone else

You’ve stumbled upon
This land of giants
And named yourself king

You’ve climbed to the top
Of the mightiest anthill
Declared yourself
You are their king

And the time starts to go
‘Cause you’re bleeding too fast
And you know something’s wrong
And you feel yourself
Feel yourself
Feel yourself fading
And thinking of
Dreaming of
Counting on everyone else

You’ve stumbled upon
This land of giants
And named yourself king

You’ve climbed to the top
Of the mightiest anthill
Declared yourself
You are their king
