And I've been so busy trying
That I've only wound up living
Weekend to weekend
Getting by just simply "trying"
And I should be out looking for a job
But only wind up heading for a stiff drink
Left with nothing else so I think
"it's time to stumble home"

(Chorus)
So I say Hello to wasted hours (whoa)
And I say bottoms up to better days

I've been so busy denying
That I've always wound up living
Paycheck to paycheck
Scraping by but hardly trying
What will it take to get me out of bed
When half the check goes to rent
the other half goes to debt
I should be out looking for another job
Instead I stumble home
I stumble home

(Chorus)
As I stumble
Another day not trying
As I stumble home
There's no one left to blame
It's just the routine and the repetition (3X)
I've spun out of control

(Chorus)

    General CommentI think the message is that too many people spend their lives simply trying to get by, and forget to live the way they want to.

    General CommentI think it's actually about people who are too lazy to do something with their lives, because they know there's no real point to it, so they just dig themselves deeper in a hole of poverty and whatnot.

    General CommentThis song was my gateway, I thought it was their best, then I bought all 5 albums and BAM I fell in love with about 100 more songs, I can never decide what my favourite song is

    General Commenti can totally relate to this song. there was a point in my life where i'd bum around all day just to get drunk all night. luckily it didnt get much worse than that, but its so easily to live life that way and you forget what you're missing out on and whats really important. alcohol (and drugs in general) and great in moderation, but when you take it too far it becomes a big problem.
