“All I Really Want” by Alanis Morissette

And all I need now is intellectual intercourse, a soul to dig the hole much deeper.

I don’t like to dissect everything today
I don’t mean to pick you apart you see
But I can’t help it

And there I go jumping before the gunshot has gone off
Slap me with a splintered ruler
And it knock me to the floor if I wasn’t there already
If only I could hunt the hunter

And is some patience
A way to calm the angry voice
And is deliverance, ah

Do I wear you out?
You must wonder why I’m relentless and all strung out

I’m like Estella
I like to reel it in and then spit it out
I’m frustrated by your apathy

And I am frightened by the corrupted ways of this land
If only I could meet the maker
And I am fascinated by the spiritual
I am humbled by his humble nature, yeah

And what I wouldn’t give to meet a kindred? Ah

Why are you petrified of silence?
Here can you handle this?
Did you think about your bills, you ex, your deadlines
Or when you think you’re going to die?
Or did you long for the next distraction?

And all I need now is intellectual intercourse
A soul to dig the hole much deeper

If only I could kill the killer

It’s all I really want, some patience
A way to calm me down
And is deliverance
A place to find a common ground


I'm routinely overestimated.
