"One of These Days" as written by and Michael Kinsella....
One of these days I'll make some money
And buy myself those things that I want:
Acrylic paints, acoustic guitar strings, a new bicycle seat
For my ride over to your house each night
And one of these days I'll get a real job
One that actually pays
Like my dad had

you know my father, the bartender
Used to wear a suit to work
Before he hit the drink,
The old man used to do a lot of things

one of these days I'll give up
And give in to the man

    General Commentone of these days i'll give up and give into the MAN.

    i have a live video where it comes out very clear, before i could never figure out either. such a good song, though.

    General Commenti think it's "a new bicycle seat for my ride over to your house each night."

    General Commenthe usually switches some lyrics around live so you cant ever really trust the live show for what he says on the record.

    General Commentmakes me think of how addicting consumerism, spawned by "narcissistic capitalism," can be. and how it can jade one's perspective on what is truly important in this life.

    "one of these days i'll give up and give into the man."

    Erich Fromm wrote a book called "To Have or To Be" that speaks of the same topic.
