"Electra Made Me Blind" as written by Art Alexakis, Ralph Scott Cuthbert and Craig Montoya....
I shake the dust from this small town
I turn and follow the western wind down
I go and pack up my shiny things
And go yeah just go

I'll find a new life in old L.A.
Yeah stupid happy with everything
I pulled myself down so easily
I know I know I know

I met Electra when living down
Saw her spinning around and around
I never knew much about her past
I knew enough that I didn't ask
living isn't a simple thing

I know
No one ever said it's supposed to be
I know
July she lied

Living isn't a simple thing for me
I know ways to make it easier

    General CommentI think that this great song could be about drugs. Art 'met' Electra (representing the drugs) and he didn't know too much about them, but he didn't ask. He just say them 'spinning round' and took them. He talks about how "living isn't a simple thing" and how everyone makes bad choices in their life that hurt them. As for "July she lied" I think that could be about his brother who overdosed on drugs (possible in July?)

    General CommentI agree with your theories. And two lines that really send me that same message are 'stupid happy with everything, I pulled myself down so easily' It could be indicating the feeling of being high on drugs and how they ruin someone's life.
