I’d rather spin in space than see that stupid face… Song 132

Person: “Why do people even care about ‘organic’ food anyway?”

Me: “Well, for one thing a lot of people don’t like when their produce is sprayed with poison.”

Person: “What poison?”

Me: “Well, roundup for one…”

Person: “Roundup is for fuckin weeds in the driveway you fuckin re****!”

Why do I even bother? This was an actual conversation I had online with someone who considered himself to be a very smart person. It’s getting to the point where it’s not ever worth even attempting to inform people or correct their ignorance. It’s almost enough for me to start praying for an asteroid impact.

My apathy towards the situation now is palpable. There is no hope left.

Song 132: “Why Even…”

The world turns upside down, feeling like a clown
When I fight the ignorance in the air today, why even bother

I’d rather spin in space than see that stupid face
I could be so happy here if my brain were dead
Why even worry

It spins my world around when I hear the sound of
Smug laughter of idiots who think they know they’re right
Why even listen

Why can’t you see what I see
Don’t look at me
That way

I’d rather spin in space than see that stupid face
I could be so happy here if my brain were dead
Why even bother
