Lyrics
It’s 5pm one cloudy, cold Monday
I’ve been nowhere for at least the last three days
They say Friday’s the greatest night for fun
And Saturday’s the one to get things done
By my weekends don’t bring me nothing new
I sit around and think of things to do
Because I’m the lonely man on a quest for truth

And after five hungry days of feeling lost and betrayed
I think I’ll get drunk and blue
That’s what my friends do but that’s not for me too
And in the summer I’ll sweat, maybe find myself some little pet
I’ll take her under my wing but then she’ll heal well
Put me under her spell, and then she’ll be gone

Now when the coldness is gone there’ll be a chance to move on
To a place where nothing is obtained
Nothing lost, nothing gained
So when the cowbells are rung
And when the last song is sung
We’ll march from within the lonely night
For better or worse, I don’t know
But I must move along

It’s 9pm on another lonely day
I’ve been sick as hell for at least the past three days
They say sometimes I’m not the only one
Who does alot but never gets things done
But still sometimes the sky seems lighter blue
It tells me soon I’ll find something that’s new
I’m just a lonely man who thirsts for truth
I’m just a lonely man who thirsts for truth

Analysis: A simple, upbeat, riff-driven rocker during the verses gives way to a softer, jazzier chorus and bridge section.
