Singled Out: Cosmo Jarvis' My Day
The song 'My Day' expresses, in a very opinionated way, many observations I have made of people my age from the first person perspective of an older person. The constant flow of different characteristics I have observed from that perspective about myself and my 'generation' was supposed to create a negative atmosphere of failure in every sense compared to the generations that have preceded it. This is because from what I have witnessed of how the presently acknowledged short comings of past generations have evolved into the increasingly ignorant, naive and detrimentally comfort seeking shortcomings of my own, I am left anticipating with great curiosity the moment where I can describe my time with the contextual distance that hindsight offers.
Although my comments are pointless as firstly, I am as guilty of being involved in what I perceive as failures as those I am commenting on and the comments one makes on ones generation are both relative to and derivative of that generation, so it's a bit of a head f*** and generally a futile exercise.
Although failures and short comings are an inevitable part of the evolution of human kind and the only real purpose that commenting on them can serve is to record the path of it's evolution/devolution, I cannot escape the undeniable knowledge that with every year that passes, so dies another excuse for having the ridiculous deficiencies we do.
