What do you do to keep from going out of your mind?

Took a walk down the alley today

I'm getting used to the smell and the sounds

Don't look out of my window no more

What's the point, everything's brown

Sometimes I wanna move to the other part of town

But to keep from going out of my mind

I move the furniture around

No place to park in my neighborhood

So there's hundred dollar tickets all over the ground

All the cops keep writing us up

And we keep throwin' em down

Sometimes I wanna move to the other side of town

There's a street over there where the landlords are fair

And a parking space can always be found

Instead I'll move my furniture around

The guy next door plays Dylan till four

I bang on the wall but he wont turn it down

I can tell by the noise what's going on upstairs

Sounds like they're moving furniture around

All the people moved out of my building last week

They threw the stuff they didn't want on the ground

Took a look I couldn't believe all the wonderful things I found

More furniture to move around

    When life throws you curves and nothing seems to go your way,

    Remember that you have to have hard times in order to appreciate a good day,

    Life is merely about balance and appreciating what you possess,

    If you focus on the bad than you'll never truly understand happiness,

    Realize that you are a breath of fresh air in a world that remains so cold,

    You have a special beauty that no ordinary person could ever hold.

    When you are feeling down and think you are loosing your mind,

    Just remember to keep yourself busy and leave your worries behind.

    Lastly, do anything it takes to keep your spirits from hitting the ground,

    Even if that means just moving the furniture around!

    Every once in a blue moon... going to a garage sale and finding a treasure from other peoples' 'trash' is great.... I loved out West, where most suburban houses have a shared back alley, and the rummage sales were usually in the back of the house, and didn't end up blocking off the damn street with all the parked cars! Sheesh!

    How do I keep from losing my mind?... I don't... I lose it every once in awhile, and then it turns up in a trash heap somewhere... ready to be used and lost again... the key is to make sure you can always find it again... don't let someone else buy it..... know what I'm talkin' 'bout?

    I think what we need to start doing St. Dave, because you know I love these types of questions too... is always list the composer or band in the comments when selecting a BA. Whaddyer say?

    Okay, you stumped me! I love the words! I have felt that way many times in my life -- before I have the life I have now. But, I remember those feelings. Stay cool.

    Great lyrics... I too am eager to know who sings this... but, I think my boyfriend is the one playin' Dylan till four... sorry about that.
