"It's Been A Bad Day"

I love REM and while my favorite is "E-Bow The Letter", the following song, "Bad Day", runs a close second. I had an REM CD in my car when I was a visiting nurse and I just let it play over and over again. I memorized all the tracks and as songs are known to do, certain selections remind me vividly of a particular patient or incident. In fact, I can't really relax when listening to REM anymore. I instead get an odd craving to give someone a shot.

By the way, here are the lyrics to "Bad Day" and they're really quite profound. At least, I think so.
