"Prodigal" as written by and Steven/balch Wilson....
I don't know whose side I'm on
I don't think that I belong round here
If I left the stage would that be wrong ?

I tried to find myself a better way
I got religion but I went astray
They took my money and I lost my faith

Rain keeps crawling down the glass
The good times never seem to last
Close your eyes and let the thought pass

I tried the capsule and I tried the smoke
I tried to aid escape like normal folk
But I never seemed to get the joke

These are my old clothes
This is a new low
This is my blood flow
This is my headstone

I spend my days with all my friends
They're the ones on who my life depends
I'm gonna miss them when the series ends

Rain keeps crawling down the glass
(Pull yourself together)
The good times never seem to last
(You know it's not so bad)
Close your eyes and let the thought pass
(Close your eyes and let it pass)

    General CommentI LOVE this line:

    I spend my days with all my friends
    They're the ones on who my life depends
    I'm gonna miss them when the series ends

    It's so funny, and tragic and odd. That he feels this connection to TV characters and probably doesn't feel that connected to the real world. Clearly he knows that they're fictional to some degree, hence that line about the series ending. Maybe it's some middle ground like the one mentioned in the line:

    I don't know whose side I'm on

    Anyway, I don't know what the full message of the song is. I like the previous poster's suicide theory. Though I've read that most of the songs on this album are about serial killers and such to some degree, and I wonder if that plays into this song's meaning. Whatever, it's still incredible.
