"Ray..."

Sometimes I sit and think about yesterday...
of all those simple words that I didn't even say.
I just sit back and wonder why... (wonder why...)
...everything is just bought and sold,
and why everyone listens to what they're told.
No matter what you do you'll never get ahead
and to everyone else you're just better off dead!
Sometimes I sit and watch you on T.V.
and I just think about how cruel it would be...
to call your family at a quarter 'til four.
"Ray doesn't live here anymore..." (anymore...)
Survey...sez,
Survey sez yeah!
Survey...sez.

    General Commentive never heard this song but i just clicked on the link cuz i just broke up with my bf ray. but go figure, these lyrics worked perfect:

    "Sometimes I sit and think about yesterday...
    of all those simple words that I didn't even say.
    I just sit back and wonder why... (wonder why...)
    ...everything is just bought and sold,
    and why everyone listens to what they're told. "

    this song is obviously wasnt written about breaking up tho.

    I always wondered if this song had something to do with Family Fued. Did Kris know him somehow or is this just a story about him?
