Sitting at a bus stop
Trying to take my shoes off,
But my laces are all knots and you
Looking for an answer to an old question
So easy I can't explain it
And everything I say to you will probably come out wrong anyway.

Made it to the trolley
Looking for my transfer
Cause the place is full of cops and you...
Looking for an answer to an old question
So easy I can't explain it
And everything I say to you will probably come out wrong anyway.

You take my seat again.....
You take my seat again.....

You take my seat again.....
You take my seat again.....

Late at the station
Feeling all wound up
Got to walk several blocks past you.
Try to read a t-shirt,
Thinks that I'm a pervert.
Sorry, wasn't getting fresh, but...
And everything I say to you will probably come out wrong anyway.

There in front of me.
It's there in front of me.
It's there in front of me.
It's there in front of me.

Sitting at a bus stop
Trying to take my shoes off,
But my laces are all knots and you
Looking for an answer to an old question
So easy I can't explain it
And everything I say to you will probably come out wrong anyway.

Made it to the trolley
Looking for my transfer
Cause the place is full of cops and you... ( You take my seat again..... )
Looking for an answer to an old question
So easy I can't explain it ( You take my seat..... )
And everything I say to you will probably come out wrong anyway.

You take my seat again.....
You take my seat again.....

Here to my house
In no seconds
Count the footsteps
Count the seconds

Near my house...
In no seconds
Count the footsteps
Count the seconds

    General CommentCertain parts are a reference to the play "Waiting for Godot". In the play two characters do meaningless things while they wait for a man named Godot, who never shows. Among the things they do to kill time is fooling with their shoe laces.

    The play is an existentialist work about waiting for answers instead of seeking them, which seems to be what the song is also trying to relate.

    There's also the line "everything I say to you is going to come out wrong anyway," which is one of the foundations of existentialism -- the inability to successfully communicate.
