Another for the same album: "Not Too Late." I added the vocals, acoustic, bass, percussion, and the big distorted background guitar all in the last couple of days, after not working on this since 2000.
Written in late '98 as my time in philosophy grad school was ending. Even as I entered grad school, I had a fatalistic "Nothing is going to come of this, and I'm just living for the moment doing reading I like and trying to get my band to take off, which won't happen" attitude, and as I edged towards its endpoint, that became less funny, or maybe more funny, but in a gallows humor kind of way.
So, this tune is about facing that upcoming wall, maybe trying to figure out how to not completely destroy myself on it.
