*This* Is Our Theme Song??

Take a second and think about what your experience as a Seattle Seahawks fan has been. Never quite to the top, often heart-breaking, sometimes exhilarating. Now, read these lyrics and tell me if they pump you up:


The Verve
Bittersweet Symphony Lyrics



'Cause it's a bittersweet symphony, this life
Trying to make ends meet
You're a slave to money then you die
I'll take you down the only road I've ever been down
You know the one that takes you to the places
where all the veins meet yeah

No change, I can't change
I can't change, I can't change
But I'm here in my mind
I am here in my mind
But I'm a million different people
from one day to the next
I can't change my mind
No, no, no, no, no, no, no,no,no,no,no,no(fading away)

Well I never pray
But tonight I'm on my knees yeah
I need to hear some sounds that recognize the pain in me, yeah
I let the melody shine, let it cleanse my mind, I feel free now
But the airways are clean and there's nobody singing to me now

No change, I can't change
I can't change, I can't change
But I'm here in my mind
I am here in my mind
And I'm a million different people
from one day to the next
I can't change my mind
No, no, no, no, no, no, no
I can't change
I can't change it

'Cause it's a bittersweet symphony, this life
Trying to make ends meet
Trying to find some money then you die
I'll take you down the only road I've ever been down
You know the one that takes you to the places
where all the veins meet yeah

You know I can't change, I can't change
I can't change, I can't change
But I'm here in my mind
I am here in my mind
And I'm a million different people
from one day to the next
I can't change my mind
No, no, no, no, no

I can't change my mind
no, no, no, no, no,
I can't change
Can't change my body,
no, no, no

I'll take you down the only road I've ever been down
I'll take you down the only road I've ever been down
Been down
Ever been down
Ever been down
Ever been down
Ever been down
That you've ever been down
That you've ever been down



Is it too late to jab a knife in my chest? That song has the inspirational value of a cancer diagnosis. Come on, Seahawks fans! Let's cheer the introduction of our team while we listen to a crappy singer tell us you're a slave to money then you die!! He also promises to take us down the only road he's ever been down, which means nothing new or hopeful. No, seriously, get pumped! 


More than wishing Qwest would finally figure out how to serve decent food a la Safeco Field, I will write an open letter to our new CEO begging him to convince Paul Allen to let this song go already. I've heard from multiple sources that the song choice goes all the way to the top. Wasn't the 2005 Super Bowl enough proof that life as a Seahawks fan is a bittersweet symphony? Can we please stop having it thrown in our face each game?
