"W.s.d." as written by and Brett Anderson....
Dressed as a cowboy on top of a hill it's sadder than it probably sounds
He gets lovely the more he's ill don't o.d. on him now
Dressed as a woman with horrible hair and singing to the birds in town
Who goes walking through traffic out there don't o.d. on her now
Oh is it true what they say about you?
Oh is it true what they say about you two?
Married to me is a hungry son who wants to push me from the 2nd floor

We're so disco we can't get on in this world anymore
Oh, is it true what they say about you?
Oh, is it true what they say about you two?
Dressed as a cowboy in a permanent gag it's sadder than it probably sounds
So fucking what if he's licking the bag, don't o.d. on him now
Oh, is it true what they say about you?
Oh, is it true what they say about you two

    General CommentThis song is about being awesomely wasted and the loneliness and connection that comes with it. The cowboy on a hill, a mythic loner whose self-destruction is glamorous (he gets lovely the more he's ill). Who cares if he's licking the bag? It's not rubbish yet, there's still drugs stuck in there!
    Suede was always so good at the dark songs and this is one of their darkest.

    General CommentThe title of this song is an abbreviation of "we're so disco", which is what the demo was originally called. Who knows why the abbreviation was used instead.

    This song is about the life of a transgendered person, deep in depression and drugs.
