lyrics

It's the third day of April-
The landlord will be knocking soon,
I've got thirty-five bucks on the table
But I'm eight hundred dollars overdue,
There's a silent narrow sunbeam streaming lightly through the glass
And settling on these dusty photographs,
That's where the frail ghost of my childhood whispers feebly to itself,
"It gets kinda lonely but I guess I'm doing well."

On the way to the liquor store,
An old man asked me for spare change,
I'd seen him several times before,
Sleeping on the sidewalks in the rain,
Now wouldn't death be easier?
Death would set him free
From the burden of the aimless life he leads,
And maybe my perspectives
Will earn me a place in Hell,
But until then, I guess I'm doing well.

Browsing through the fantasy stories that I used to write
Back in the days when I was still passionate about life,
It's strange to think how age would change a man's frame of mind
Just to leave him reminiscing bygone times,

And all across the globe
Are people who i might have loved,
There's corruption in their souls,
They've been forsaken by the lord above,
In solitude their voices seem to penetrate the walls
And echo through my heart's haunted halls,
And perhaps this earth we live on is just a giant prison cell,
But I'm used to it, so I guess I'm doing well,

Yes, the knocking on the door has steadily increased,
I think it's time I disappeared indefinitely,
There's a frail ghost dissolving
With nothing left to tell,
Save for the lie,
"I guess I'm doing well."
