Waiting for the break of day
Searching for something to say
Flashing lights against the sky
Giving up I close my eyes
Sitting cross-legged on the floor
25 or 6 to 4

Staring blindly into space
Getting up to splash my face
Wanting just to stay awake
Wondering how much I can take
Should I try to do some more
25 or 6 to 4

Feeling like I ought to sleep
Spinning room is sinking deep
Searching for something to say
Waiting for the break of day
25 or 6 to 4
25 or 6 to 4

    Honest to God, the meaning of the song is the writer needed to write a song, it was about 3:35 AM, and he came up with this.

    Who cares what it's about, such a great classic tune. I really like the version where they slow it down a bit and jazz up the backup instrumental. I'm a trumpet player so listening to great brass players is right up my ally anyway. But I'll have to admit, I have wondered about the original thought that spurred the lyrics.

    I'm glad someone knows what the heck this song is about. I always thought it was about some poor bastard on a cocaine binge.
