Stuck in the middle
Of a vendetta
between me and myself
I sure could use a witness,
but I just ain't found one yet
I sent a message in a bottle,
took another swallow
I heard it didn't get there
I heard that it had mystery
this is what it said

today the things that come my way are back together again
I'm staring at the mirror and it's been so long
Since I've seen you my friend

Cheap women, cheap wine
cheap money, cheap time
These things do not exist
But what makes that temptation
Just so hard to resist
That stolen Picasso you rest above your head
I wish that you could hear me
This is what I said

I sure could use a witness,
but I just ain't found one yet
I sent a message in a bottle,
took another swallow
I heard it didn't get there
I heard that it had mystery
this is what it said

today the things that come my way are back together again
I'm staring at the mirror and it's been so long
Since I've seen you my friend

    My InterpretationI think some of the above lyrics are wrong... This is what I hear:

    I sent a message in a bottle,
    took another swallow
    I heard it didn't get there
    I heard that it had missed ya'
    but this is what it said

    Today the things they goin' my way, I'm back together again
    I'm staring in the mirror and it's been so long
    Since I've seen you my friend...

    Reminds me of coming out of a haze... alcoholic haze, drug induced haze, broken hearted haze (in this case broken heart) and things are finally looking up after being down for so long.

    General CommentThis is the type of song whose lyrics really don't matter.
    The harmonies, beat, vocals, drums, and just the general feel of the song are enough.
