Something Else

Else

Finally I don’t mind
Worthless tries at finding something else
Best not talk too loud
You’re not as smart as you require of them
Your body breaks
Your needs consume you forever
And with this lies the need to be here together

Funny thing with blood
You try to stand but neither leg’s awake
Just this side of love
Is where you’ll find the confidence not to continue
Your body breaks
Your needs consume you forever
And with this lies the need to be here together

Although his words and their guitars sound frail there is power in acceptance. Acceptance is like coming to rest. We work in this hyper-complex society where managers assume they can control their employees and projects, be it software or oil-platforms, with a few key performance indicators. Doug Martsch offers ”You’re not as smart as you require of them” as a mild but firm counter-spell. Be sure to listen to the rest of the album for the continuation which I perceive to be very subversive. For example, though the chair is obviously broken, it is you who have to adapt.
