Art Alexakis (of Everclear)

I have been listening to Art and Everclear for years now, and I just wanted to post a mini-tribute to Art here, because I have been listening to him a lot the last couple of days. I dig Art, and for some reason, most of the song lyrics he's written could have been written by SB. We sort of see the world in the same (dysfunctional) way. I think we hurt in the same places. We are broken bitches, but still making it through.

Also, we both like the word motherfucker. What? It's a good word. Very versatile.

Sending MAD love out to Art.

Hater

Yeah, live and let live mutha-fuckers
I’m gonna do me –you do you
You’re all a bunch of haters
I don’t like the way that you talk to me
When you tell me how it’s gonna be
And I don’t like the way that you smile at me
When you tell me what is wrong with me
Sometimes I wish you would go away
Go away and never ever come back
I don’t like the mean and vindictive things you do
It makes me want to hate on you
Yeah, it’s got me sad
I’m kind of stressed
You got me feeling anxious
I’m always depressed
And I don’t want to play this game of tug-o-war
I don’t want to be with a hater like you anymore
I don’t want to be with a hater like you anymore
No, I don’t want to be with a hater
You are such a hater
I don’t like the way that you never take the blame
For absolutely anything
And I don’t like the way that you put me through hell
For all those things you do yourself
Sometimes I wish I could disappear
Fade away into a happy new life
I don’t like the way that you’re always telling lies
You talk about me all the time
I hear you talk
You are such a bore
I see the way you look
I think you look like a whore
I know you know I know the way you were before
I don’t want to be with a hater like you anymore, hater
I don’t want to be with a hater like you anymore, hater
I don’t want to be with a hater like you anymore
I don’t want to be with a hater like you anymore, anymore
I don’t want to be with a hater like you anymore
I don’t wanna play this game
No, I don’t want to play games
You’re a hypocrite
You lie to me
You use words you don’t understand
You embarrass me
Yeah, you’re beautiful
In an ugly way
Hey the sex was never that good anyway
It’s got me down
I’m superstressed
Taking medication
I’m always depressed
I don’t want to fight you in the tug-o-war
I don’t want to be with a hater like you anymore
I don’t want to be with a hater like you anymore
I don’t want to be with a hater like you anymore
I don’t want to be with a hater like you anymore
I don’t want to be with a hater like you anymore
I don’t want to be with a hater like you anymore

There's an Ever* band I hate and one I like somewhat (I don't follow anyone closely - I need variety) so I hope this is the one I like cuz the other is just so fucking annoying and whiny.

I'm thinking my new neighbor is going to be a hater. fuck

Petit fleur said...

Wow. Intense.

Sarcastic Bastard said...

Jeannie,
The whiny everwhatever might be this band. Art is sort of whiny.

I dig whiny. I love Counting Crows.

Lori said...

ooh I love Counting Crows too. You have such lovely taste in music, ( you listen to alot of the same tunes I do, lol) When I have the life blues, I can put the right music on and I can feel my mood lifting. Music can do wonders for the soul. Peace Mama...

Sarcastic Bastard said...

Lori,
Yes, we do have EXCELLENT taste in music!

Peace back. Love you.

Ms Hen said...

The more I see the world with LOVE .. the more Love is returned to me.

I read some books on that the last year.. and I stopped suffering from depression.

Whether it is a gimmick or not.. it is working.,. !! I just tune out the other stuff more and more.

Ms Hen said...

Wow.. I just listened to this band and song on YouTube.. what a great voice and song..

I find it Positive... get away from THE HATERS... !! Wow great song... great sound too. And he is cute too.
