One Of Those Days

Written in October of 1997 in Edmonton, Alberta

Raise my head, let the music take me
To a place where they can’t make me
Do the things that I don’t want to
But I’ll do it anyway

Open my eyes, look amongst the ruins
In my mind a change is due and
I don’t know if I can make it through
All by myself alone

But I’ll try
To get by
And soon enough I’ll find
That it’s just
It’s just
One of those days

Circle the wagons and dig your trenches
Mind your baggage and mend your fences
Keep in mind the consequences
Then decide if you wanna play

Twist my arms, twist my words
Twist your ears ‘round what you just heard
Keep in mind that all’s absurd
Confusion’s best when kept at bay

And you can try
To get by
And soon enough you’ll find
That it’s just
It’s just
One of those days

One of those days
When you can’t get along
One of those days
When you do your best to carry on

One of those days
When you can’t get along
One of those days
When you do your best to carry on

Raise my head, let the music take me
To a place where they can’t make me
Do the things that I don’t want to
But I’ll do it anyway

I’ve run this race a dozen times
I never have placed, but I don’t mind
If you keep your eyes on those road signs
There’s better days up the road aways

And you can try
To get by
And soon enough you’ll find
That it’s just
It’s just
One of those days

I said it’s just
It’s just
One of those days
