This song came together from a piano part written by Kevin and a great set of lyrics and melodies by Laurie. The guitar solo was amped through a Leslie rotating speaker cabinet, creating that cool swirling effect. Max Kuzmyak tracked some awesome horns that really filled out the song. Lee likes the A-Minor chord borrowed from the parallel minor key.


Hey man, on the corner by the liquor store with a sign
in hand, and he's begging for the change that you can spare.
And hey, man, life is really not that bad just look around,
and realize everything you need is floating in the air.

And you say it's too late, you've thrown your life away.
And I say you're afraid of every little change.

Oh no, Geoffrey, what have you done with your life it seems
a pill infested life is the life you chose to lead.
And oh no, Geoffrey, time is passing by and what's to show
from the alcohol and medication that you can't let go.

And you say it's too late, you've thrown your life away.
And I say you're afraid of every little change
the world will throw your way.
It's always hard to make it through your day,
but I know you'll be OK.

You always tell me you're only happy half of the time,
but look at me, man, yeah I'm doing fine,
and I'm feeling alright.
