This is a song by Ween, from the album The Pod.

Much of this song is hard to understand because the singer sounds like he's about to fall asleep until the end when he yells "Sorry, Charlie! OWW!" The guitar tends to be sleepy also and lazy, and a little flat at times, seemingly to enhance the effect.

However, despite its sort of slacker sound, this song actually has lyrics that make sense, maybe sounding like a philosophical-yet-straight-up ramble from a teenager's journal about how life isn't really fair. Sample:

And now you're cold and sleepy.
Christ, how did it come to this?
Hold on to those you thought were your loved ones;
They'll be the ones you miss.

And now you're standing at the station
Tryin' to take what I ain't got to give.
Oh and I'm so sorry Charlie
I've got my own life to live

There is more philosophizing about how to make ends meet Charlie better sell more pot. The song rhymes better than any of their others on this album so far, even if it's not very melodically interesting, and unlike most of the others it actually has a chorus (the part that begins with "And now you're standing at the station").
