No Shit (Iggy Pop)

It was in the winter of my fiftieth year
When it hit me

I was really alone
And there wasn’t a hell of a lot of time left

Every laugh and touch that I could get
Became more important

Strangely, I became more bookish
And my home and study meant more to me
As I considered the circumstances of my death

I wanted to find a balance between joy and dignity
On my way out

Above all, I didn’t want to take any more shit

Not from anybody
