"The Way It Seems" as written by Booker T. Jr. Jones, Donald V. Dunn, Stephen Lee Cropper and Stephen Jordan....
last night i heard you were going
going forward to stay
bound for some other shore
to let your garbage lay

and now your running backwards
right into your greif
gathering your weapons
ripping w/ your teeth

but thats so unexciting
and thats the way it seems
soon i will be done for
somewhere inbetween

slick and dark and hungry
it's the only game in town
gambling in no mans land
rippin' faces down

the flames shooting downward
every where you are
tempertatures a blazing
turning tricks in cars

n thats unexciting
n thats the way it seems
soon i will be done for
somewhere inbetween.

    General Commenti ordered the One Foot In The Grave from the Beck website & a couple weeks later they emailed me this song... i don't know if thats the only way its been released.

    its pretty awsome tho... i think he's kinda bummed that a girls bailing on him, & mabe thinking that she'll change her mind at some time but by then it might be too late... he'll have gotten tired of it. moved on. over it. done for.

    kind of a sad & o well tone to it. its just great.
