"Domino" as written by and Johnny/takac Rzeznik....
If you never had it then
You don't know how bad it is
There is nothing like it, well
Needless talk, then, I can tell but

Here comes the day I sit and wait (Dominoes are falling still)
Oh, it's always something
The bills keep coming, the car ain't running (As I know they always will)
Now I'm bummin' home again
Another day, oh, the mailman's on his way (Dominoes, a test of will)
Just sit and wait
Always ponderin' my fate too late (Dominoes)
And then the day goes

I bought them from you yesterday
Little buts til you ask me
No one minds, I can tell
Seems I've hid the ones you shall, but

Here comes the day I sit and wait (Dominoes are falling still)
Oh, it's always something
The bills keep coming, the car ain't running (As I know they always will)
Now I'm bummin' home again
Another day, oh, the mailman's on his way (Dominoes, a test of will)
Just sit and wait
Always ponderin' my fate too late (Dominoes)
And then the day goes

Dominoes are falling still (Oh, every day)
As I know they always will (I sit and wait)
Dominoes, a test of will (That's why I'm pondering my fate too late)
Dominoes (And then the day goes)

    General CommentAm I the only one who thinks this song kicks ass or what?! It rocks so hard and Robby's vocals are so good. And when Johnny does the backup chorus, wow. It's probably my favorite song on SSCW. But I also don't know what the word in the third-to-last line is.

    General CommentTHE LYRICS ARE WRONG!

    from googoodolls.com:

    If you never had it then
    You don't know how bad it is
    Having nothing, liking it well
    Neighbors talked and, I can tell but

    Here comes the day I sit and wait
    Oh it's always something
    The bills keep coming the car ain't running
    Now I'm thumbing home again
    Another day, oh, the mailman's on his way
    Just sit and wait
    Always pondering my fate too late
    Another day goes

    I borrowed from you yesterday
    Lent a bunch to you last may
    No one minds I can tell
    Seems I've picked the wrong seashell but

    Here comes the day, I sit and wait
    Oh it's always something
    The bills keep coming, the car ain't running
    Now I'm coming home again
    Another day, the mailman's on his way
    Just sit and wait
    Always pondering my fate too late
    Another day goes

    Dominoes are falling still
    As I know they always will
    Dominoes a test of will
    Dominoes

    General CommentThis is my fav song off sscw.
    i think its about life being too predictable and boring "Dominoes are falling still
    As I know they always will".
    "Another day, oh, the mailman's on his way - Just sit and wait"
    Every day you go to work, to pay your bills, and then the next day you have to do the same thing
    "The bills keep coming, the car ain't running - Now I'm coming home again"
    and each day goes by like this.
    Oh and it could also be about going bankrupt: "if you never had it then... you dont know how bad it is" meaning to not have anything anymore….
    And then theres the last line: “Dominoes a test of will” which could be interpreted as how much you are willing to continue this type of lifestyle, which everyone is encouraged to lead.
