Arboretum (Anthem of my 19th Year)

July 7, 2006 10:59 AM

Washboard beat, acoustic guitar, a little piano, some singin'. Listen for my dog bark in the background.

All the trees are frozen and the plants are buried in the snow
and I am buried in my life
Are you here for a class?
No, I'm skipping class to be here
and I think I'm skipping town tonight.
All my friends are out of town
I really wish I was drunk right now
but I don't have any alcohol.
Winter is a lousy season to visit the arboretum
and 19 is a lousy age.
I don't think there's anything that you can do to help me out right now but I really appreciate the offer.
I've got a lot of stuff to get done if I'm gonna get done with all the stuff that I gotta get done.
The power lines are buzzin' like a hive of bees and nothin's gonna bring me down from here.
If my life were a car the check engine light would now be blinking on and off and on and off, on and off and on and off
I don't want to go to school tomorrow
I don't want to go to school ever again.

I like the emotional dissonance between the lyrics and the instrumentation - it really captures how much it sucked to be 19! :)
