It's been about three weeks now
Since I've laid in her bed
No rest for my soul I need,
A little soul rest for my head
See i've been dancing with possibility
And playin' with my razor blade
I lost the thing I thought I had
The thing that made me think I had it made.

Why you laying down
I say that it beats standin' up
What's got you feeling so down
I hold up my head to come
My friend, as you can see,
I have nothing to pour
Invited in, I gave all I had and they showed me the door
They showed me the door

It seems it's been forever now,
I've given up on that bed
I don't have much soul left now
And I don't have that much bread
Im seein' that there are no more possibilities,
I've tossed away my razor blade
I never had the thing I thought I had, The thing that made me think I had it made
Think I had it made

Why are you laying down
I say that it beats standin' up
What's got you feeling so down
I hold up my head to come
My friend, as you can see,
I have nothing to pour
Invited in, I gave all I had and they showed me the door
They showed me the door

    General CommentThis song is about a man suffering through depression three weeks after being kicked out of the house. Now homeless, he is telling his story to us, because he has no money or love from anyone. Then there is a long break in the middle of his overcoming the depression as he accepts his new life. The line "Why are you feeling so down, i HOLD UP MY EMPTY CUP" is about him physically showing how he has nothing now, not even a dollar in his cup.
