A person who fails at almost anything, including drums, school, life, etc.

One of the worst bands ever to exist, with the real Lost Cause actually being the drummer, and sucking serious ass. All members refuse to be associated with the band's former suckish-ness.

Awesome and also weird song from Beck. Very weird album indeed.. Sea change is particulary different from the rest.. really good song
Your sorry eyes, they cut through bone.
They make it hard to leave you alone.
Leave you here wearing your wounds
Waving your guns at somebody new.

Baby I’m a lost
Baby I’m a lost
Baby I’m a lost cause.

I’m tired of fighting
I’m tired of fighting
Fighting for a lost cause
