"Boring Fountain" as written by John Robert Cardwell, Philip Abram Dickey and William Lincoln Knauer....
Fell asleep in a boring fountain
Woke up with an unkind word in my mouth
Too late, but I kept counting
Every bump in the highway as I headed down south

Are we losing something now?
A house divided a golden cow
Are we losing something now?

By the way, I feel nothing
By the way, I feel sorry for you
By the time you feel something
By the time I'll be through with you
Yeah, yeah

Gone quick to another country
Came back, I found the same things on TV
Yeah I left a little bag in an open door
But it never occurred to me

Are we're losing something now?
If you could slow this down
Are we losing something now?

By the way, I feel nothing
By the way, I feel sorry for you
By the time you feel something
By the time I'll be through with you
Thank you Little Rock

She said, "buy candles, light candles around me"
I saw light everywhere, it now was surrounding me

    General CommentIt's clear to me I think, I don't know it's just what I get from the song. The chorus really throws it out "by the time you feel something I'll be through with you"
    Someone's being used.
