"Just A Day" as written by Grant Nicholas, Taka Hirose and Jon Lee....
Waking up at twelve in my clothes again
Feel my head explode from a night of gin
Another night out late
I don't want to drink, don't want to be a clown
Gotta get my feet back on the ground
Before it pulls me in

How come it ended up like this?
And who's gonna catch me when I'm coming down
To hit the ground again

All by myself
Cause I don't want to drag you down
Hold you down, cause you're a friend
I blame myself
I guess you think it's funny now, funny now

On the underground the freaks and frowns
Looking at the world through silver clouds
But then it all came down
I gotta rise above the emotional flood
Gotta cut these ropes around my hands
Pull myself around

How come it ended up like this?
And who's gonna be there when I've lost control
I'm heading to crashland

All by myself
Cause I don't want to drag you down
Hold you down, cause you're a friend
I blame myself
I guess you think it's funny now, funny now

All by myself
Cause I don't want to drag you down
Hold you down, cause you're a friend
I blame myself
I guess you think its funny now, funny now
It's such a shame

All by myself
Cause I don't want to drag you down
Hold you down, cause you're a friend
I blame myself
I guess you think it's funny now, funny now
It's such a sin

All by myself
Cause I don't want to drag you down
Hold you down, cause you're a friend
I blame myself
I guess you think it's funny now, funny now

    General CommentIt's not a sad song, it's an angry song-there's a difference. He wrote it on an acoustic after a bad break up. It's so sarastic it's unbelievable, it's basically him sticking two fingers up at his ex and refusing to get down. It's empowering, that's why people dance to it and it makes them happy.

    General CommentThe song is, I think, about excess. It's about the cycle you fall into where you overdo the drink-drugs etc. and feel bad and wreck friendships and so on, but then you do it over and over again because it becomes a habit and then an addiction and then a way of life.

    And all the time a part of you knows you have to stop, but you can't. And the people who stay your friends during this descent are your real friends, and you cling to them.

    General CommentI've known Feeder for a while, but I was never really into any of their music. Then, a few weeks ago, I went and saw a movie, Ultimate X, and I heard this song. I was addicted. This song just makes me happy for some reason...lol. Great song, great band. WooHOOOOO FEEDER!!

    General Commenthappy song, great for parties when me and friends do wake up at 12 still in clothes after a heavy night of drinking (sometimes gin) feeder would feature on the soundtrack of my life quite a lot. such a great shame about the death of jon lee, i was lucky enough to meet him. missed more than melody.
