I'm just walking along,
stuck in a song.
Whistling thusly.
Stereotypical life.
Kids and a wife.
Three of them, plus me.
Neil's inspiration is thin.
Thin as a pin.
There isn't much to me.
So I'm just walking along,
stuck in a song.
Happily gloomy.

Break it off.
Break it off.
Take me out.
Don't let the melody fake me out.
Break it off.
Break it off.
Take me out.
Don't let the melody fake me out.

I don't even have a name.
This brings me shame.
I'm so diminished.
I know all songs have an end.
I could pretend
this one is finished.
I guess both ways I am screwed.
Maybe if you'd
do me a favor.
If this track's on a CD
Skip it for me.
You'd be my savior.

Break it off.
Break it off.
Take me out.
Don't let the melody fake me out.
Break it off.
Break it off.
Take me out.
Don't let the melody fake me out.

    General CommentI think this song is about someone who feels as though life has only thrown things at him, and he blames Neil for his existence. (He wrote the song, after all.)

    General CommentI don't think it's about someone blaming Neil for his problems... it really sounds like a song complaining that it's not finished.

    General CommentMaybe Neil couldn't had a long period of writers block, so he came up with a song about not having anything to write a song about?
