90s indie college rock fuzzed out tune ID filter

Ok, so this was a college indie rock tune from the early to mid nineties (could be as early at late 80s?), something that would have come through the radio station. Sung by a guy, the band sounded kind of like the Archers of Loaf. Could be them from their back catalog? Cannot get this tune out of my mind, here are the lyrics: "And I don't..really think...about it anymore, no not much anymore, and I don't...even think...I'll ever be rid of youuuu" (fuzzed out guitars take over). Internet lyric searches yield nothing! Can you help me find my old earworm?

Damn I was really hoping it was gonna be Here's Where The Strings Come In.

You're super definitely sure it's not "Wrong" by Archers of Loaf? The lyrics you posted sound like their lyrics jumbled: "I do not think that...inferior to me...etc" before exploding into fuzz.

Positive that's it's not "Wrong"

How about Archers of Loaf's "Might"?

"For some reason I don't think I'm gonna make it.
For some reason I don't think about it anymore."

I don't think it's Archers, I'm pretty familiar with their later albums. Malkmus's voice is closer to the singer's voice but not quite.

The singer's voice was somewhere in between Jeff Martin of Idaho and Stephen Malkmus of Pavement and the band had the energy and tempo of Pavement or Archers. I'll step out now. I hope the hive can find this tune. Could be really obscure but I'm not sure about that. I am sure about the lyrics. Sure enough, I mean.

The Pavement song that comes to my mind from your description is "Perfect Depth." The lyrics aren't quite what you describe though.

I came in to suggest "Might" as well. It's off of Icky Metal, which was their first studio album.

Also not quite the right lyrics, but how about Guided By Voices, Liar's Tale?
