A country theme song for Sartre's play about a trio stuck bored in hell forever. Written and recorded in one session on 1/1/14 for the Partially Examined Life audio performance of the play.


So this is it, this is what it's like
It's not like we imagined back on the flip side
No torturers, no lake of flames
Just you and you and I with only ourselves to blame

Just sitting and sitting and thinking about
The living and what we will be doing without

There's no exit, no way out of here
Though their strategy is hazy the results are too clear
There's no exit, no escape from you
And hell is other people here with nothing to do

Re-letting, forgetting us back there on earth
We regretting and getting on each other’s nerves

You rub me wrong, I guess that’s the point.
I wish that you would both shut up or we a joint
We don’t belong together in this room
I don’t a ménage a trios will happen too soon

Not pretty, this pity, I’m feelin’ so deep
I don’t think I can sleep with you, ‘cause we never sleep

Eternal estrangement, this is our prize
The final arrangement, I look through your eyes
And see me: the product, of things that I’ve done
I know I deserve this, but shit, it’s no fun
