Just Apathy, a song by Rob Cantor.

History[edit]

The Complete Demos version of Just Apathy has the following differences from the new M.M.M.M. version:

  • The second verse has "Waiting 'round for something better" replaced with "This one's done and I'm an asshole", and "I'm the one that wouldn't let her" replaced with "She's in the midst of my whole hassle."
  • The Chorus' last line is changed from "Something I just can't get around" to "One thing I just can't get around."
  • The song is slower, and tends to change speed and volume more over the course of the whole song.
  • The instrumentals are quite different, especially at the beginning of the song.



Lyrics[edit]

I'm too much or not enough
Maybe everyone else is messed up
Well anyway I can't seem to stay
In just one state of mind

Waiting 'round for something better
I'm the one that wouldn't let her
Now I'm back and forth
I get bored when she's no perfect find

'Cause it's one thing or another
I don't even know why I bother
One thing just tears her down
'Cause it's one thing or another
I don't even know why I bother
Something I just can't get around

Consider the possibility
That you've been had but not by me
We're just kids
Don't worry about this

My course is run and I'm so tired
Until the next one comes inspired
I feel bad and I should
I made her sad and I knew it would

'Cause it's one thing or another
I don't even know why I bother
One thing just tears her down
'Cause it's one thing or another
I don't even know why I bother
Something I just can't get around

I need to learn
To wait in turn
'Cause now I just step blindly
And I'm only happy when
I can close my eyes and I just dive in
And forget about acting kindly

'Cause it's one thing or another
I don't even know why I bother
One thing just tears her down
'Cause it's one thing or another
I don't even know why I bother
Something I just can't get around

Still I know you won't let me down
