“The Greatest” by Cat Power

“Once I wanted to be the greatest. Two fists of solid rock with brains that could explain any feeling.”

Once I wanted to be the greatest
No wind or waterfall could stall me
And then came the rush of the flood
Stars at night turned deep to dust

Melt me down
Into big black armour

Lower me down
Culprit south
Make ’em wash a space in town
For the lead
And the dregs of my bed
I’ve been sleeping
Lower me down
Pin me in
Secure the grounds
For the later parade

Once I wanted to be the greatest

Two fists of solid rock
With brains that could explain any feeling

Lower me down
Pin me in
Secure the grounds
For the lead
And the dregs of my bed
I’ve been sleeping
For the later parade

The stars at night turned deep to dust

CPE

I'm routinely overestimated.
