The lyrics aren't groundbreaking, but the sentiment is definitely a more mature one then some are giving the band credit for. As far as I can tell, the song is about having to deal with the frustrations and stress that shit in life will throw at you without being able to release it like when you were younger and didn't have the same responsibilities/family etc. When you get to their stage in life, you can't just easily let your frustrations out by screaming at people you hate them, trashing stuff or going out getting wasted and getting into fights. Instead you've got to carry it all with you weighing you down, this song is about trying to deal with that. This isn't a song an angsty teenager would write. That's my take on it anyway. And this track would indeed have fitted very well on LIVING THINGS. It's very similar to several of the tracks.
