A terrible case of LSS (last song syndrome)

This hit song by the band "Fastball" is currently my LSS. You know that weird condition when a certain song keeps playing over and over and over in your head. "Fastball" is a band based in Austin, Texas and they gained some valuable air time in the early 90s with some of their songs like "The Way" and "Out of my Head" from their album "All the Pain Money can Buy".

I'm guessing this song could be an indication of several things. It might or might not necessarily reflect how I feel about my life right now. Sometimes I feel like (my) life is composed of a string of "waiting game" scenarios. I'm not even sure this song depicts that nagging feeling of always waiting, waiting and waiting some more for something concrete to happen. Either that or I can always blame the standard culprit - PMS! A much more terrible syndrome which I am hoping against hope won't manifest itself (yet again) this month.

Out Of My Head

Sometimes I feel
Like I am drunk behind the wheel
The wheel of possibility
However it may roll
Give it a spin
See if you can somehow factor in
You know there's always more than one way
To say exactly what you mean to say

Was I out of my head?
Was I out of my mind?
How could I have ever been so blind?
I was waiting for an indication
It was hard to find
Don't matter what I say only what I do
I never mean to do bad things to you
So quiet but I finally woke up
If you're sad then it's time you spoke up too!
