Being And Nothingness

Well, if I’m in an existential funk
I find it helps if I get drunk
I take a single malt, I reach for Jean Paul Saltire
When I’m lonely

Being and nothingness
I will not accept anything less
There are monsters nevertheless
In Lochgelly and Loch Ness

Everyone’s acting a part
No essence, no brain or heart
Some of us have backbones
Some of us have smart phones
We’re all lonely

Oh, if you’re looking for sympathy
Or even profundity
Me, me, me
Oh yeah, yeah, yeah

I used to have a personality
But I killed him, now it’s just me
Now I’m just a dried husk
Everything that I touch
Makes me lonely

 

from the album Pointless by Jean Paul Saltire. Listen here
