"Long Year"

[Verse 1]
Well I came in off a dead-end street
I walked in slow and took a back row seat
I knew I had nothing new to say
So many people looked [so burned out/sober now?]
I couldn't help but feel bad about
Just having to be there anyway

[Verse 2]
A friend of a friend from work came in
I never knew what to make of him
He had always seemed to be so insincere to me
I've always been afraid of the 12-Step crowd
'Cause they laugh too much and they talk too loud
Like they all know where everyone should be

[Chorus]
It's been a long, long long year
It's been a long, long long year
How did I get here?

[Verse 3]
They was talkin' in a circle, I was by myself
And everyone was tellin' everyone how they felt
And it felt like so long since I was young
The circle kept movin' all way to the back
I was wonderin' what I was gonna say in fact
I still didn't know as it rolled off my tongue

[Chorus]
It's been a long, long long year
It's been a long, long long year
How did I get here?

[Verse 4]
So I didn't say a word all the way to the car
A little later on that night at the bar
Well, I was tellin' everybody how bad my life had gone
They said, "Brother, all you need is another shot"
So I threw one down and said "Thanks a lot"
As I thought to myself, "Here we go again"

[Chorus]
It's been a long, long long year
It's been a long, long long year
How did I get here?
