about

I've had chronic migraine for the last year and a half and IT PRETTY MUCH IS ABOUT AS MUCH FUN AS IT SOUNDS and it's been a tough transition from I'm Such An Independent Badass to Well Shit, I Guess Not?

lyrics

I don't want to have needs, I just want to be the one Em G
Always saving the day, always getting things done D A
With practiced hands, and the fire of the sun Em G
For fuel, not this empty, empty battery D A

It's hard to cut yourself slack, hard to have your own back
Hard to take your own advice, hard to even be nice
You know that you should be a superhero
Isn't everyone a superhero but me?

Maiden in distress never suited me best
I want to be thick-skinned, not waiting on the wind
For random news back of abilitiy or lack
I'm going to have today

I don't want to depend on the kindness of friends
I know that that's our lot in the only life we've got
But if you've got a line on robot-based dignity
Hey I'm listening

I don't want to have needs, I just want to be the one
Always saving the day, always getting things done
With practiced hands, with the fire of the sun
For fuel, not this empty, empty battery
