"The Disappointed"

I love XTC. Andy Partridge is right in the middle of the grand tradition of eccentric songwriters (see Kevin Ayers, Roy Harper). I mean, look at those song titles! Making Plans for Nigel? Bonkers. This song may be a bit too polished for some, but I like the lyric: "Once I had no sympathy/For those destroyed and thrown away by life"....
