Progress

about

I wrote “Progress” shortly after a difficult few months of a toxic job and living situation. One day I went for a walk and realized for the first time in weeks I didn’t feel completely low. Kind of like when you have a really bad headache and then suddenly you realize the headache is over and maybe you’ll be fine. The song came to me really quickly. I thought maybe it was too simplistic or childish sounding, but when I sat down to demo it - I realized I’d already said absolutely everything I need to say at that time.

lyrics

I hate myself a little bit less than I did yesterday
I'm making progress
I've still got a lot to figure out
But so do you and so does everybody else

I hate myself a little bit less than I did yesterday
I'm making progress
I hate myself a little bit less than I did yesterday
I'm making progress

I'm making - ahhhhhhhhhhh
I'm making progress
I'm - ahhhhhhhhhhh
I'm making progress

I've been feeling a little left out
That's okay, I don't even need them
'Cause I hate myself a little bit less than I did yesterday
I'm making progress

I'm making - ahhhhhhhhhhh
I'm making progress
I'm - ahhhhhhhhhhh
I'm making progress
