Songfacts®:

  • This song is about how life can throw so much at you, but you have to work through your problems and not obsess on them. In the line, "Got a job got a life got a 4 door and a faithless wife" the singer admits he has problems, but in the next line, "Got those nice copper pipes, got an ex, got a room for the night," he finds solutions to his problems and looks on the bright side. >>
