…On A Wasted Opportunity.

Posted by Steve on August 23, 2010

The song “I Don’t Wanna Be Me” by Type O Negative is a great song. However, the verses have nothing to do with not wanting to be yourself anymore. Just the chorus & the title. I think that’s a shame, because if the song’s verses really had addressed that emotional state, that would make it a perfect song. I mean, not wanting to be yourself, wanting to be someone different, I believe that’s a common feeling. As Neil Peart wrote, “Some of us are born to live our fantasies, but most of us just dream about the things we’d like to be.”

Oh well.
