Song of the night: “Such A Loser” by Garfunkel and Oates

You didn’t do it, didn’t reach your goal
Your heart is broken, you’re an asshole
And you didn’t have what it takes
So here’s to you and your huge mistakes

You’re humiliated, hollowed out, and exhausted
You were in the ring fighting the fight, and you lost it
This isn’t your time, this wasn’t for you
At least you did everything you could do

You’re a loser, but a dreamer
You’re tired, but you’re strong
You’re going on no evidence
You don’t listen to common sense
You went all in, and you were wrong

You are such a loser
Good for you
It’s something that a lot of people can’t do
Trying is hard, that’s why people don’t do it
Losing is hard, they can’t make it through it
But not you

You are such a loser
You are such a loser
Here’s to you
‘Cause you deserve a cheering section too

Throw your heart in it, so what if you break it?
You know now that you’re strong enough to take it
Don’t let it break you, don’t let them break you
Fake it, keep going till you have a breakthrough

Icarus is bullshit, that’s why it’s called mythology
People can’t stand genius without an apology
Forget that, forget them, go get what you wanna get
Let them stay at home and comment on the internet

You’re a loser, but a dreamer
You’re tired, but you’re strong
You’re going on no evidence
You don’t listen to common sense
You went all in, and you were wrong

You are such a loser
Good for you
It’s something that a lot of people can’t do
Trying is hard, that’s why people don’t do it
Losing is hard, they can’t make it through it
But not you

You are such a loser
You are such a loser
Here’s to you
‘Cause you deserve a cheering section too

You can only fall that far
‘Cause you set yourself up so high
Who really cares if this time it didn’t fly?
At least you tried
At least you tried
At least you’re not that guy watching from the side
Who thinks he’s doing better ’cause he wasn’t defeated
When he’s just a non-entity who never competed
You’re the one who’s out there reaching for something greater
And you know
It’s better to be a loser
Than a spectator

And you are such a loser
You are such a loser
So here’s to you
