"Bed Abuse" as written by and Michael Kinsella....
I spend most days in this bed that I abuse,
On these pillows that you can't get used to.
I spend entire days putting off that which can't wait
Until I'm knee deep in my own waste.

And I think that I'm justified 'cause I've seen what trying's done for those who've tried.

I spend most days in this bed too small for two,
Misplacing time like I've got it to lose.
I spend endless days thinking of all the different ways that we make love.

And I think that I'm justified 'cause I've seen what living's done for those alive.
(little to none, little to none)

I spend entire days in this bed too small for two,
On these pillows that you can't get used to.
And that's why I don't sleep at night
And that's why I don't feel right in this city
It's more me than you.

    General Commentonce again... way too many good things about this song... well, besides the fact that I completely relate to the "and pillows that you can't get used to" line. that's just funny actually... and the "misplacing time like I've got it to lose". classic... and this must be a Mike's signature... the closing... I can't get enough of this wussie crap. so quiet, sad, introspective... emo... whatever! I love it. great song, great lyrics... I wish this song ended the album because I like this song better than the last one.
