Obscure Friday Tune

Here's one that you surely only ever heard if you own the Live album Throwing Copper.  It was never released as a single, probably because it doesn't really have mass appeal and also because they didn't play things that would require this much editing on the radio in 1994.  It's a quirky little song called "Waitress", check it out (NSFW in any way, shape or form):

If you don't think too much about it, this song pretty much sounds like Ed just really, really wants you to leave the waitress a frickin' tip.  But then if you pay attention, you see that it's a lot more than that (as usual for Live).  It is more about the boat that we're all in.  They way sometimes it sucks for everybody and we could all use a little change in our lives and maybe a little help from one another.  The song itself is kind of all over the place, but I dig it.
