I've lost count, of how many times I've tried to reach you
You weren't coming
Have my messages gotten lost?
Cause it's been twenty six years now, and still no response
I guess I'll start where I last left off
Fill you in with everything that's been going on
It's been a bit overwhelming
But I'm sure all the letters have been more than telling

[Chorus]
(Yeah)
Yeah, you just ought to know! (you just ought to know)
I'm coming here, because I got nowhere else to go

I for one am better off without you (without you)
But then I know that I really fuckin' need you (need you)
I've lost count, have my messages gotten lost?
(Of how many times I've tried to reach you)
Cause it's been twenty six years now, and still no response

[Chorus X2]
(Yeah)
Yeah, you just ought to know! (you just ought to know)
I'm coming here, because I got nowhere else to go

It starts with me
It starts with me
It starts with me
It starts with me
It starts with me
It starts with me
It starts with me

    My InterpretationI think the speaker in this song is talking about God.
    He has been praying to God his entire life asking for help, but he never got an answer. In the end, he decides he doesn't need God's help to overcome his problems, but takes a stab at him anyway saying "there are those out there who really do need you."
    "I'm coming here because I've got nowhere else to go" is referring to a church. The speaker is not a religious man, and has lost his hope and faith in God, but since he has been cast out by society and may be homeless judging by previous songs, he comes to the church as a last resort.
