A jazzy sort of blues song - a humorous examination of the blank state that despair can put you into..

Lyrics
Sometimes when I'm alone
Like so many times before
I take off all my clothes
And I roll on the floor
But I'm not crazy - no
I'm just getting nowhere with you

And when friends come around
Why there should be joy in the air
But I'm standing in the corner
With a vacant stare
But I'm not stoned - no no
I'm just getting nowhere with you

Oh I'm banging my head on that old brick wall
Just hoping and praying that someday it'll fall
And if my brains shatter
Why it - it really wouldn't matter at all

Night-time comes
I need a little rest
So I lie down on my bed
Cause that's the place I like best
But I don't sleep - no no
I just get nowhere with you

Oh yes I'm banging my head on that old brick wall
Just hoping and praying that someday it'll fall
And if my brains shatter
Why it - it really wouldn't matter at all - ooo

Night-time comes
I need a little rest
So I lie down on my bed
Cause that's the place I like the best
But I don't sleep - no no
I just get nowhere with you!
