Mit seinem Auftritt bei David Letterman hat Father John Misty TV-Geschichte geschrieben. Er bricht mit seinem Auftritt und diesem Stück die Konventionen eines jeden Singer-Songwriters: das Instrument spielt auch ohne ihn und er, der ernste Barde stellt sich als Komiker aus, indem seine Zeilen wie die eines Spassmachers aus dem Off belacht werden.

How many people rise and say My brain’s so awfully glad to be here for yet another mindless day Now I’ve got all morning to obsessively accrue A small nation of meaningful objects they’ve gotta represent me too By this afternoon I’ll live in debt And by tomorrow be replaced by children How many people rise and think Oh good the stranger’s body’ s still here Our arrangement hasn’t changed Now I’ve got a lifetime to consider all the ways I grow more disappointing to you as my beauty warps and fades I suspect you feel the same When I was young I dreamt of a passionate obligation to a roommate Is this the part where I get all I ever wanted Who said that Can I get my money back I’m just a little bored in the USA Oh just a little bored in the USA Save me white Jesus Bored in the USA They gave me useless education And a sub-prime loan on a craftsman home Keep my prescriptions filled And now I can’t get off but I can kind of deal Oh with being bored in the USA Oh just a little bored in the USA Save me president Jesus I’m bored in the USA How did it happen Bored in the USA
