I dread living in this world, oh yeah
Cause people killing every day
I dread living in this body, oh yeah
Because its needs won't go away
I don't want to wash the dishes piled up in the sink
I feel like I can't go to work, I haven't slept a wink
Cause I dread everything
Next week I have to interview for a job
But I'm so worried they won't want me for their bank to rob
I got a pain in my stomach, I got an ache in my neck
And all I know is I don't know what's coming next
I don't want to think about the things I got to do
I just can't face up to all the food I got to chew
Because I dread everything
I dread living in this house, oh yeah
Because the noise keeps me awake
I dread living in this family, oh yeah
Cause no one gives back what they take
I don't feel like vacuuming the dirt upon the floor
Everything I ever do feels to me like a chore
Cause I dread everything

Influences include Violent Femmes, the Velvet Underground & Talking Heads, but the music of his forebears is filtered through his own distinctive world view & sonic approach, resulting in a creation uniquely his own.

Simple without being simplistic, accessible without being sycophantic, & clever without feeling smug, he achieves a compelling balance between the new & the familiar. - Scott Hollis
