about

In my twenties, I wasted a lot of hours in bars when I played in some bands. I was mostly out of the house, and hating it. I had to smoke cigarettes so I could endure the pain of socializing with annoying people. I should’ve enjoyed my own company instead, in the comforts of my room.

Nowadays? I spend most of my waking hours in wife-beaters and shorts, barefoot in my own bedroom.

I hate putting pants on. I hate going out. What can I say? Happiness is staying in your room all day, right?

When I turned thirty, I celebrated my birthday by going to Seattle by my lonesome. I visited a Nirvana exhibit. When I saw Kurt Cobain’s cardigan (the one he wore in the MTV Unplugged show), the image egged me to write a grunge song done with acoustic instruments.

lyrics

I LOVE MYSELF

Sleep inside all day
Write your tears away
Smoke a cigarette
Think of life and death

While others go I will remain
By the lamplights
In my room, I'll forever stay

Money's never good
Sleep is all I should
A notebook and my brain
The sofa is a train

That I ride while I remain
By the lamplights
In my room, I'll forever stay

Ditch the government
We take care of ourselves
Forget about career
Just read and grow a beard

I love myself so I'll refrain
From the spotlight
In my room, I'll forever stay

By the lamplights
In my room, I will never go away

Yeah, it feels right
In my room, I'll forever stay

By the lamplights
In my room, I will never go away
