The Slackers – A Long Way Off lyrics

A man on the street
Asked me where I was going
I looked at him and said
Man, I wish that I was knowing
It seems I'm always up against
The wind that's blowing
It's such a long way off
Such a long way off
Maybe it's a coffin
That's the best cure for my cough
But that's a long way off

I wagered all my winnings
On a table full of tears
She looked at me and said
Man, we don't play that game here
Just Russian roulette
With a pistol to your ear
And you're a long way off
Such a long way off
She said, you look Roman
I said, I'm just roamin' off
Such a long way off

I say a can is for my dreams
As they hung from the trees
She stole the fruits
Of all my victories
I was waiting for a thank you
But I never got a please
I was a long way off
Such a long way off
My head has gone heavy
And my heart has grown soft
I was a long way off

I felt that I was floatin'
Somewhere in outer space
I really thought I found it
By lookin' in her face
But I guess I never found it
In the first place
I was a long way off
Such a long way off
I sink like a stone
If I would carry the loss
Such a long way off
Such a long way off
Such a long way off
Such a long way off
Such a long way
Such a wrong way
Such a long way off
Such a long way off
Such a long way off
Such a long way
It's the wrong way
It's the wrong way
