An Invitation to Ye Olde Mountain Goats’ Medicine Show

Come one, come all! Step right up, little boy! That's right, you there! Be the first on your block to Get Lonely!!!

Lonely is an all-encompassing attitude package, including such versatile attachments as:

- Spitefulness
- Anger
- Existential Angst
- Depression
- Mourning
- Hopelessness
- Feelings of Abandonment
- Fits of Rage

Take advantage of Mr. John Darnielle and the Mountain Goats' Get Lonely demonstration tour! John and the boys'll introduce you to the numerous uses of loneliness, helping you to make use of this essential, new emotion! The Mountain Goats are certified experts in the field of loneliness and guarantee full satisfaction, as long as wallowing in negative thoughts and feelings is your thing.

For the uninitiated, The Mountain Goats offer a full program of desolate sentiments, including such new laments as:

"Spend each night in your arms. Always wake up alone."


"Some time before the sun comes up, the earth is gonna crack."

Of course, Darnielle and co. will pay tribute to the old favorites, the gold standards, if you will, in miserable utterances:

"I hope you die! I hope we both die!"


"And the headstones climbed up the hills."

And yet, lying in your comfortable bed, when the show is over and your bitter medicine's been bought, you might begin to wonder whether you'll ever actually "get" lonely. You'll wonder just what made you go out looking for loneliness, anyway.
