Sitting in the back yard in broad daylight
When everything around me seems to spend once or twice
Days when I acted like a fool
Days when I broke every rule
Tell me How long?
Are you wasting my time going mind to mind
Tell me How long?
Are you wasting my time going mind to mind, yeah

Little Jack Horner sitting in the corner looks real sad
When everything around him really makes him mad
Days when he acted like a fool
Days when he broke every rule...................

tell me........

Walking the street at a cool cool night
Looking around it's all full of fright
I never thought I could be so strong
I'm shaking just like I've never seen the light....

tell me How long!

Look at us all standing on the shoulders
of the Jolly Green Giant
"Is that my son up there?" my mom said
"Is that my grandson up there?" my grandmama said
Yeah it's me mom taking my time
Yeah it's me mom riding the ride
Look at me now, I'm King Kong
Look at me now, why don't you tell me,
tell me How long!!

    My InterpretationThis song sounds like he is up on drugs. The backyard spins, he acts a fool breaking every rule is kind of admitting that what he is doing is wrong but can't seem to break the cycle. He starts to wonder when he will break the cycle of getting high. Then he reflects back on the fear creeping in as he was sitting in a corner (probably on the floor) and confused as he was depressed and angry but not feeling like he could shake the feelings of depression that comes with being high. He walks around sober and the world seems more evil and revels in how strong he is to be sober then he finds himself getting high again on what I assume is pot seeing as he calls it the green giant. He again feels the judgement of his family but is enjoying the ride too much to really care and then wonders when he will ever get off the roller-coaster of drugs.
