What is it?

It's a bit chippy
---It's a bit gamey
It's a bit rocky
---It's a bit of fun
It's a bit of therapy
---It's a bit of melody
It's a bit of noise
---It's a bit quick 'n' dirty

It's all Worthless!

And all things today will dissolve come what may
But don’t worry about it at all

So don’t worry about it at all

Track Name: Worthless!
He considered himself a poet of sorts - had an encyclopedia of bullshit philosophy he was ready, willing and able to share upon a victim at a moments’ notice.

There was madness in his method but not much of a method to his madness. Some could even go so far as to call him… insufferable.

(You’re worthless! You’re fucking worthless!)

(Fucking worthless!)

Track Name: On Overcoming...
The original name of the album was “On Overcoming A Terrible Self-Doubt,” while alludes to the reason why it takes so long for me to complete and release music.

It’s not for lack of creativity or inspiration; I’m sure I’ve got 200-plus songs that I’ve started and are sitting at various levels of completion. It’s something much deeper.

It’s the feeling that nothing I create will ever be good enough or will ever be worth anything.

So the impetus to complete these songs and put this album together was that I found myself in a deep depression that really impaired my ability to function in day-to-day life. And it’s something I’m still going through. But a strange thing happens when your entire life feels like it’s crumbling underneath your feet - the question of whether or not something I make is good enough sort of dissolves away.

Because when everything else is taken away, I can still create.

I still can’t see the end of the tunnel. I can’t see a future where I’m standing in the sunlight and the world is not caving in around me. The only thing I can do is keep creating. And I don’t know if I’ll ever make a masterpiece, if I’ll ever have my magnum opus, if I’ll ever be venerated or even remembered. But it doesn’t matter.

What I create may be worthless, but when I create I am not worthless.
