Well, today a friend told me this sorry tale
As he stood there trembling and turning pale
He said each day's harder to get on the scale
Sort of like Jacob Marley's chain

But it's not like life's such a vale of tears
It's just full of thoughts that act as souvenirs
For those tiny blunders made in yesteryear
That comprise Jacob Marley's chain

Well, I had a little metaphor to state my case
It encompassed the condition of the human race
Nut to my dismay, it left without a trace
Except for the sound of Jacob Marley's chain

Now there is no story left to tell
So I think I'd rather just go on to hell
Where there's a snowball's chance that the personnel
Might help to carry Jacob Marley's chain

Help to carry Jacob Marley's chain...

But, it's such a good line... :)
I keep wanting to like Aimee, because I know she\'s good. But then I keep thinking, \"MAN, this girl brings me down.\"

Remember Shawn Phillips out there? Humm! Sounds a bit of...
Why won\'t this whining banshee just go away?
The more I hear of her, the more I like it! Great stuff!
Wow... it just sounds cool...
