(note: this E here is tricky... i THINK the bass is playing the low E 
while the guitarists are doing this one, so it's tough to get. IF you 
want, try playing

Lyrics (as best as I can tell) 
 
Sleepin' on a planner at the port authority, 
waitin' for my bus to come, 
Seven scotch and sodas at the office party 
Now I don't remember where I'm from 
 
I think I had a black wallet 
In my back pocket 
With a bus ticket 
And a picture of my baby inside 
And if I make it home alive 
 
I'm gonna get my *** together 
Cause I can't live like this forever, 
You know I've come too far and I don't wanna flip 
I gotta new computer and a bright future in sales 
yeah yeah 
(Yeah yeah), bright future in sales 
yeah yeah 
(Yeah yeah) 
Yeah yeah 
 
Headin' for the airport on a misty morning 
Gonna catch a flight to Baltimore 
Try to kill an hour with a whiskey-sour 
If there's time i might have just one more 
 
I gotta do some, quick readin' 
for the big meetin' 
but my head is spinning 
and i can't quite open my eyes 
as long as I don't have to drive 
 
I'm gonna get my *** together 
Cause I can't live like this forever, 
You know I've come to far and I don't wanna flip 
I gotta new computer and a bright future in sales 
yeah yeah 
(Yeah yeah), bright future in sales 
yeah yeah 
(Yeah yeah), bright future in sales 
yeah yeah 
(Yeah yeah), bright future in sales 
yeah yeah 
(Yeah yeah) 
yeah yeah 
 
I had a line on a brand new account 
But now i can't seem to find where i wrote that number down, 
I try to focus, 
I'm starin' at the screen, 
Pretendin' like a know what all these little flashing lights mean 
 
(oh yeah)
