See Lucky Dan at CryptoPunks: https://www.larvalabs.com/cryptopunks… For Christmas 1989 All he wanted was a Powerglove He didn’t get one and that was fine It didn’t mean that he wasn’t loved He wet the bed until he was 8 And his mom never let him stay Over at his best friend’s house She was always so afraid Now he’s overeducated And he’s underpaid And he feels it, getting older every day He was promised something different Something bigger than the universe A life filled with such purpose Getting better never worse When his mom walked out he was 15 Old enough to sing along He helped Pop pick up the pieces They drank beers on the lawn To be honest though he never dealt with it And it made him hard to touch Nobody that loved him could Ever quite get close enough Now he’s overeducated And he’s underpaid And he feels it, getting older every day He was promised something different Something bigger than the universe A life filled with such purpose Getting better never worse Lucky Dan Lucky Dan They used to call him Lucky Dan Staring at the sunset In the sand They used to call him Lucky Dan The years all bunch and pile up He can’t tell them apart Lucky Dan tells himself That he was doomed from the start A couple of kids all full grown An ex wife that calls him a creep From here it looks inevitable The circle is complete Hi there! If you’re new around these parts, welcome. I’m Jonathan Mann. I write a song every single day, and I’ve been doing that for the last 7+ years. Through sick days, tired days, days with no inspiration, the death of my grandma, the breakup of a 5 year long relationship, the marriage to my wife and the birth of our son – I’ve never missed a day.
