Song of the Week - Battle Of Who Could Care Less by Ben Folds Five

I have 8,068 songs on iTunes. This is one of them.

One of my favorite Ben Folds Five songs even though I'm way too old for the imagery. "See, I've got your old I.D. And you're all dressed up like the Cure"? Trust me, when I was in high school, nobody dressed like the Cure.



Do you not hear me anymore
I know it's not your thing to care
I know it's cool to be so bored
It sucks me in
when you're aloof
It sucks me in, it sucks it works
I guess it's cool to be alone

Do you never rest
Fight the Battle of Who Could Care Less
Everyday you wake up late
Sometimes I wish I was
that way

And you think Rockford Files is cool
But there are some things
that you would change
if it were up to you
So think about your masterpiece
Watch the Rockford Files
And call to see if Paul can score some weed.

Will you never rest
Fight the Battle of Who Could Care Less
Unearned unhappiness
That's all right I guess...

I've got this great idea
Why don't we pitch it to the Franklin fucking Mint?
Fine pewter portraits of
General Apathy and

Major Boredom singing...
Whatever and ever... amen

Oh well, maybe not, I'll try again
This should cheer you up for sure
See, I've got your old I.D.
And you're all dressed up like the Cure

you never rest
fight the Battle of Who Could Care Less
unearned unhappiness
You're my hero, I confess

i bought that album when it came out based on the title of that song. although i think it should have been titled 'the battle of who couldn't care less'
