Crippling Self-Doubt and a General Lack of Confidence

Album: Tell Me How You Really Feel (2018)
  • Yes, they say whoever pays
    The piper calls the tune
    Oh, let's avoid the truth
    Make you all feel special
    And your desperation stinks
    I can smell it on your breath
    A certain absolute anosmic
    Got yourself to blame for this

    (Tell me how you really feel)
    I don't know, I don't know anything
    I don't know, I don't know anything
    I don't know, I don't know anything
    I don't know, I don't know anything

    Your opinion means a lot
    Well, tell me what's the use
    I never feel as stupid as when I'm around you
    And indecision rots
    Like a bag of last week's meat
    And I guess it's hard to keep everybody happy

    (Tell me how you really feel)
    I don't know, I don't know anything
    I don't know, I don't know anything
    I don't know, I don't know anything
    I don't know, I don't know anything

    I don't know, I don't know anything
    I don't know, I don't know anything
    I don't know, I don't know anything
    I don't know, I don't know anything

    I don't know, I don't know anything
    I don't know, I don't know anything
    I don't know, I don't know anything
    I don't know, I don't know anything Writer/s: Courtney Barnett
