Liner Notes: 

A typical afternoon in the TG household.(Stanley's our cat.)

Lyrics: 

Stanley's watching the storm
through the glass door
and I'm sitting
with him

I sighed
"What's wrong?" he cried
"Oh, it's nothing
just an everyday cry
of existential angst
... but thanks
for asking"

An everyday cry of existential angst
a "Try-as-you-might
we're all gonna die"
sigh of "Why even try?"

I wear a dress of utter pointlessness
You wear a suit of complete futility
we're stock figures of humanity
stuck indoors on a rainy day

An everyday cry of existential angst
a "Try-as-you-might
we're all gonna die"
sigh of "Why even try?"
Why?

i love the title, and even more when discovering it came from the mouth of your cat. the lyrics are exceptional, and i especially liked it when you sang, " I wear a dress of utter pointlessness /
You wear a suit of complete futility / we're stock figures of humanity/ stuck indoors on a rainy day" Your songs just keep getting better, and have been the listening highlights for me this season.. thank you also for listening to my songs and leaving such astute and encouraging comments.

I love the groove of this song and its dark but SO catchy and feels fun. Really nice job!

I like the ominous tone looming throughout. The lyrics appear to begin to be light-hearted, but then go very deep. The conversational tone in the lyrics too is part of what made me listen carefully. And the music is cool.

As good a deep lyric as i have heard this year! Brilliant. Although i am naturally optimistic, this comes to me as well. Top class.

I'm gonna repeat myself now; really excellent bass line here.
I'm liking this a lot.
Pretty groovy.
Dance music for angsty robots.
Do cats have existential crises?
I'm thinking that they don't, seeing as how they think they own the world and we are all their servants.
Aah!! I miss your crazy guitar solos!
Really nice work.
