One more day to complete my service
One more high to decay my nevous
Wondering how I'm gonna find a way
It's over

One more day to complete my service
One more time here to fade my servant
One more day if I find a way
Over

She seemed to read minds
And I know a later time
We could make it with you
Leave the soul

Old age

One more day to complain my servant
One more doubt here to find a servant
One more time here if I find a way
It's over

Wondering how I'm here date my cover
One more doubt here to save my never
Wondering how I'm gonna find a way
It's over

She seemed to read minds
And I know a later time
We could make it with you
Leave the soul

Old age

Just you need
And read
You're freak
Hmmmmm

And knew
You read
You flew
Ooo
Hmmmmm

One more day to concrete my circuit
One more high here to find my nervous
Someday I'm gonna find a way
It's over

One more doubt here to claim my supper
I can have anything you want to
One more day if I find a way
It's over

She seemed to read minds
And I know we were out of time
Breathe the way here with you
Dream the same on the dew
Breathe the same on her
Take a moan on a man
Breathe the shame on you
Breathe the lie

Old age

    I think he was tslking about how the women should do household chores and men shouldn't but one day he has to do community service and therefore he payed his settlements. And paid for the food on the table.

    One more day to complete my service
    one more high to decay my nervous
    (one last high and the anxiety that comes with quitting drugs)
    wondering how im gonna find a way, its over (wondering how the hell you are going to survive the violent throws and pain from quitting)
    one more time here to fade my servant (yet another attempt to quit using drugs after other failed attemps)
    one more day if i find a way (get away with getting high one more time if possible)

    She seemed to read minds
    and i know a later time
    we could make it with you
    leave the soul (heroin(e), a female hero, druggies can make life easier with her, but at the cost of your soul)
    old age (never quitting)

    Too lazy to do the rest :p

    I can't analyze the entire song but the first verse is basically for anybody who has struggled with an addiction or something similar. Saying "oh just one more ... And it's fine, then i'm done" is never the answer. "wondering how i'm gonna find my way, it's over" speaks for itself.
    Amazing song by an amazing songwriter and singer.

    Don't let yourself die mentally, make what you have last, no one really gets old if they don't let themselves, stay young at heart, but wise in the mind.
