Fred sits alone at his desk in the dark
There's an awkward young shadow who waits in the hall
Yeah, he's cleared all his things and he's put them in boxes
Things that remind him that life has been good

    A similar song to me is 'Grapefruit Moon' by Tom Waits, in terms of the composition and songwriting.

    Ben Folds is such a good story teller. I can picture this perfectly and it makes me emotional every time I listen to it.

    This song just reminds me of a depressing poet/song writer, which sounds pretty damn obvious but still.....sitting in a cold basement wrapped in a blanket watchin those "project(ed) slides on a plain white canvas," ?

    My long-favorite Ben Folds song, and I just learned something else about it that makes me love it even more; John McCrea did the backup vocals. HOW DID I NOT REALIZE THIS BEFORE!!?!?! So. good.

    I would very much like to lynch the person who pirated this song, and listened to it before anyone could play THE RIGHT SONG.
