Are you having a long day
Everyone you meet rubs you the wrong way
Dirty city streets smell like an ashtray
Morning bells are ringing in your ears

Is your brother on a church kick
Seems like just a different kind of dopesick
Better off to teach a dog a card trick
Than try to have a point and make it clear

You should know, compared to people on a global scale,
Our kind has had it relatively easy
And here with you there's always something to look forward to
My angry heart beats relatively easy

I lost a good friend,
At Christmastime when folks go off the deep end
His woman took the kids and he took Klonopin
Enough to kill a man of twice his size

Not for me to understand
Remember him when he was still a proud man
A vandal's smile, a baseball in his right hand
Nothing but the blue sky in his eyes

Still, compared to those a stones-throw away from you,
Our lives have both been relatively easy
Take a year and make a break there ain't that much at stake
The answers could be relatively easy

Watch that lucky man walk to work again
He may not have a friend left in the world
See him walking home again to sleep alone
I step into a shop to buy a postcard for a girl

I broke the law, boys,
Shooting out the windows of my loft, boys
When they picked me up, I made a big noise
Everything to blame except my mind

I should say, I keep your picture with me every day
The evenings now are relatively easy
And here with you there's always something to look forward to
My lonely heart beats relatively easy
