Memo to Human Resources

This song is by They Might Be Giants and appears on the album The Spine (2004) and on the EP Indestructible Object (2004).

I'll be in the back
And I don't need the help.
I'm good here in the back.
I'm good all by myself.

I'm busy taking stock of all the things that I forgot
And making mental notes of just exactly where I lost
The plot.

I stuck around too long
Feeling sorry for myself.
A disinvited guest
Rifles through the bathroom shelf.

I'm searching for some disbelief that I can still suspend,
But never mind the furthermore; the plea is self-defense
Again.

Then the people came to talk me down
And I got some advice.
Then the people came to talk me down,
But I don't need advice - I'm down.

Later in my car,
I considered what you said.
I'm good here in my car.
I'm good with what you said.

And I'd be shouting out to you, but I was mighty hoarse.
Talk you through the finer points and issues much to small
To force.

Then the people came to talk me down
And I got some advice.
Then the people came to talk me down,
But I don't need advice - I'm down.
