Comments:
"Another Day" was an attempt at serious commentary on poverty and despair.   While we can't be blamed for trying, personally I think Adams and I should have stuck to writing harmless "pop songs" (see comments for the "Into The Fire" album).
Lyrics:
Woke up lyin' on the floor
Can't recall the night before
Oh - another day

Outside it's cold and damp
Unemployment cheque is spent
Yeah - another day

Some people never know
You just can't let it go
Or try and work it out some other way

Some people never learn
My life ain't their concern
And nothin's gonna change come what may

Had a job but it fell through
Landlord says the rent is due
Oh - another day

They say the best in life is free
But if you don't pay then you don't eat
Oh - another day

I guess I'll never know
You just can't let it go
Or try to work it out some other way

Some people never learn
Their life ain't my concern
Ain't nothin' gonna change come what may

Grass looks greener on the other side
But I can't get there my hands are tied
And if I do don't be surprised
Oh - gotta figure it out another day
