2004 : 01 "The Rat" by The Walkmen

You've got a nerve to be asking a favor
You've got a nerve to be calling my number
I'm sure we've been through this before
Can't you hear me? I'm beating on your wall
Cant you see me? I'm pounding on your door

I have wanted to scream this before. There are several times in my life where I have wanted to ask people where they got the nerve to treat me in a particular way. I think that is the simple reason this song works. The lyrics are great and the music fits the lyrics. Ding, ding, ding: we have a winner.

When I used to go out I'd know everyone I saw
Now I go out alone if I go out at all

Rich Thomas
