about

Jonathan Coulton's new album "Solid State" has been one of my favorite things to happen this year. "Brave" might be the catchiest song I've ever heard in my life.

lyrics

Good things never last long when you've
Come to expect them
The whole world is doing it wrong and I
Can't not correct them
Slack-jawed sheeple with their eyes closed
As if I don't already have

Enough to do
There's too many of you
More than I can save
When I torch the place
Cover up my face
That will make me brave
That will make me brave

Heroes, we pay a high price. There's a
Girl who ignores me
Good guy, I used to be nice, now I
Hate 'til it bores me
Small-time pitiful rebellions
I'm here, puckered up, sucking on these

Sour grapes
Filling in the shapes of
Shadows in my cave
When I torch the place
Cover up my face
That will make me brave
That will make me brave

You speak and presto-change-o, great—
Now I'm the bad one
Your manifesto's strange, oh, wait—
You don't even have one

Sunlight is kicking up dust as I
Stare down the morning
Who's left? There's no one I trust and I'm
Sure it's a warning
Up late, measuring the harm done
My heart hardening, counting up the

Lonely nights
All the little slights I'm
Taking to my grave
When I torch the place
Cover up my face
That will make me brave
That will make me brave
