Title: Typed Resume (Bag With That)
Artist: Foibles
Album: Solid Rock Baptist Church Rummage Sale
Written by: Phil Dumesnil

Fourth song on Solid Rock Baptist Church Rummage Sale by Foibles, a San Francisco lo-fi band. The song is about leaving high school and getting a dead end job, and wondering why you wasted your time.

This song has two vocal layers, both by the same singer, a technique which is used often throughout the album. There's a cognitive dissonance between the upbeat tempo and happy major chord sounds, and the somewhat depressing lyrics. Perhaps the song is more about apathy than sadness.

Typed Resume (Bag With That)

Take down the catchphrase queen
A coupon for three free samples, oh boy!
And an autumn blue name tag
Apron for the self worth disease

Dawn of the new dental plan
Six tubed fluorescent cylinders, strong
Posting clovers in our pockets, we blessed the faculty

Invested worthless
Days
of smile and wave and shake
We're almost there
Our bones were naked
Crushed up in a gelatin cap
So sad, but so was she

Manipulated parole
With common household itemised charts
Pros and cons
Prostitutes initiate democracy

If all is not lost in the end
Most everything good was donated in jest
We're off into never, we had to under-dress to disagree

Invested worthless days
Of smile and wave and shake
We're almost there
Our bones were naked
Crushed up in a gelatin cap
So sad, but so was she
And the worst of all my dreams
Has come to visit me
