I was just running some errands, and I was casually flipping through radio stations, which I don’t think I do often enough. I stumbled upon a station that was playing a song that was so stereotypically emo, it probably could be mistaken as parody. Acoustic guitars, girly-man singers, and bland pain.
The lyrics went like this (I’m paraphrasing): “I will always be alone, I will always be alone, unless you come to your senses.” Because obviously his relationship problems are only the damn woman’s fault, as is usually the case. Women. Where do they get off existing, am I right?
I tried to look up the song and the artist because for a second I was under the impression that that actually mattered. It’s impossible to find, though, because when you plug in “i will always be alone unless you come to your senses,” the hits are enormous—LiveJournals, GeoCities sites, and even one site that explains the intricacies of “coming out to your parents” (this cannot be a coincidence).
