What’s an emo perspective? Try a few: “My secrets end up on oiled canvases in a gallery for everyone to judge,” “I’m miserable with you. I’m more miserable without you,” “Walking around trying to keep my mouth shut, while the pity piles up. Like a goddamn dog with its tail between its legs, ashamed of trying to butter up your obituary.”
There’s a lot of self-pity here, and even a bit of preachiness (“Everybody wants more, when they already have some”), but this is a bona fide college mope, set in tune to a small piece of the ’90s revival that’s already on its way. And the ’90s were just plain rad.
