"The Other Shoe" as written by and Mark O. Everett....
It's a beautiful morning
The sky is black as ink
The city's sleeping still
And soon they'll wake up
To the stink

And soon they'll wake up
To the stink of life passing them by
Wake up and smell the stink of their lives

The garbage trucks are coming
To take your shit to the dump
You're smelling pretty now
Such a pretty little lump
A pretty little lump of flesh
Who's lost you way
Another night another day

And when you sleep at night
Dreaming of the pretty things
Don't be too surprised
When the telephone rings

I'll be sitting here
Waiting for the other shoe to drop
I'll be sitting here
Waiting for the other shoe to drop

    General Commentthis song kicks my ass every time i listen to it.

    when i think of it i think of E being pissed at the world for living life and not appreciating things. everyone takes everything for granted. they push all the bad stuff away so they don't have to deal with it. everyone tries their hardest to make it seem like life's what they want it to be. but one day the shit will all hit the fan and then they'll see how fucked up everything is. probably with a phone call in the middle of the night telling them that a loved one has died.
