"tailspin" as written by and Gary Michael Louris....
Well, they stood prepared as you took the chair.
There was no need to satisfy you
I'll be damned though I held your hand
They felt the need to crucify you

You're goin' down baby baby
You're goin' down baby baby
You're in a tailspin, running out of your head
You're in a tailspin, running out of your head

You're a fragile flower in its finale hour
With no chance to taste the waters.
Judge declared "You'll get 15 yrs,
Join the lonely sons and daughters"

You're going down baby baby
You're going down baby baby
You're in a tailspin, running out of your head
You're in a tailspin, running out of your head

Smoke and mirrors couldn't hide your tears
Your eyes only betray you
Long trip, you lost your grip
We've all been praying for you

You're going down baby baby
You're going down baby baby
You're in a tailspin, running out of your head
You're in a tailspin, running out of your head
You're in a tailspin, running out of your head
You're in a tailspin, running out of your head

    General CommentNo comments on this song? You people are missing out.

    No idea what this song is about but it's super catchy that I almost don't care.

    General CommentIf we're going for literal, it sounds like a girl is going to prison or something like that for something she may or may not have done (or at least not something deserving of 15 years, since it seems the jury was looking for a scapegoat).

    Great song, though. I love Gary's guitar tone on this song, especially during the solo. It's just raw and dirty. Too bad the band broke up.
