I have climbed power lines and mountains just to feel above the ground
I have crawled out your hallowed houses just to feel my headache pound

I feel like graffiti on a urinal in the abattoir, well it goes and it goes
I can't stop my legs, I can't feel my feet, I own nothing, and nothing owns me
'E

We're all born screaming
We're all born screaming, 'eah
'Eah

I have climbed into open arms, they turned into a straight jacket
Stolen hearts I didn't need, but man, I always paid for them

I was a pantomime of a modern girl, those were the days, and I was miserable
A karaoke version of Leonard's "Hallelujah," my whole damn life, I had never exhaled
Oh well

We're all born screaming
We're all born screaming
We're all (All) born (Born) screaming
We're all (All) born (Born) screaming, 'eah
Well, 'eah
Well, well, well

Oh, oh

All born screaming
All born screaming
All born screaming
All born screaming

Nice tune and hope to hear it again soon -- but when I read "Rolling Stone named Clark the 26th-greatest guitarist of all time in 2023" I couldn't have been more shocked.  Combing the ranks of jazz, classical, and even rock players, there are easily one thousand players whose mastery of the instrument would enchant St. Vincent.  And I'm sure that she would agree.

Good song though.

That list is so flawed. As an avid guitar player, many of those rankings are just way off, even given the subjectivity of the rankings. 

Meh

I agree - it's all a bit condescending really, as if the fact that she's a woman who actually plays guitar is enough to elevate her status (whereas there are plenty of stellar female guitarists - for example, the wonderful Jess Lewis who really is good.
Das ist richtig gut!

Found myself enjoying this. It cut through on my commute. A good find.
