i was coming back from the casino, thinking that i need to find something else to do with my time. the radio announcer said that third eye blind was coming up, i thought that i had a semi-charmed kind of life.

writing the song made me realize that the reason i need another loan, the reason i paid-off my first loan, is partly because of a financial advisor who told me to. it was mostly my lack of foresight, my being unaware of my overdue property taxes, my being impulsive.

i'm packed and i'm loaded with five-grand and six-grand and mo' grands
i live for free and i live to see occupations, to show no life-wastings
need some proudness, earn some shrouds of green...
and i take much time, it's like a job to do - it's ever-fun and slots are cool, luck is overdue
keep on smiling cuz i'm so fooled, can't stop til i'm winning back what i'd lose

and i seem to lose what's awarded from my hurts, got some structured dimes coming ev'ry twenty-first
my job is casino day-by-day, so give me some pay today, i said

i want something else to get me through this brain-injured kind of life (save me, save me)
i want something else...i'm not winning, it's a waste of time

the life i'd know, it was gold, it was great to live until casino made me win
i would be back there next day, back there trying much to win me something great
fooled when bigger wins kept building what is in my bank
i can't stop, i won't come out, i need slots and a big slot-winning, but they're more not than oft
but when my luck struck, i took the win that i was given and i struck it rich but i stuck it in again
how do i get back there to the place where i felt no need or pride to gamble and bet myself into
the place where i'm in?

i want something else to get me through this brain-injured kind of life (save me, save me)
i want something else...i'm not winning, it's a waste of time

i believe i was bad to repay loan, experian deemed me unworthy - shield me
i was needing to raise my score...i paid off my mortgage late one night
can i undo the thing that makes me cry, cuz that would bring more life to life

amen, i may have sinned, i said just what had been
the taxes weren't gived to the city, i slipped to find that now i'm struggling to get by
most days i am fairly a wreck, depressed for the weakness, the money-mess
no vision said "man, don't pay off the debt" - i must go find a lending bank now, so more cash will come

how i so bleed...and how i'm moping...is the score that i got renewed something regal now?
heal my head, lend me twenty thou, i can't try to go without...no, no...cuz i so want a fun life
keep on affording what now gives me smiles - the money is all my fault, i...

i want something else to get me through this...plight, baby
i want something else...i'm not winning and i hate my life...should i...say bye...and die?

the life i'd know, it was gold, it was great to live until casino made me win
i would be back there next day, back there, now i hate it from my heart...

i want something else
