"Know Thy Self" is the fifth track off Jandek's debut album Ready For The House released on August 31, 1978. The song was written by Sterling Smith, the man behind the Jandek project.


You think I got time for you?
You’re just somebody in the snow
I don’t even know why I think about you
Somehow I just keep seeing you around
Everybody’s coming and going
I thought I’d stay for a while
It had to be you threw me out
I didn’t know you were so cruel
But thanks for all the gifts
Hang on silver branches
And now we’re all out here
And your eyes find me in the glass
