I've only got one bra to my name
he said it's alright
did he hear that, did he hear it?
that's enough of even trying
I wish it didn't matter
he told his son
he wants to kill himself
he said it's alright
I have had enough of this life

    General CommentMy my my. Got to be a favourite. I love how the move is shifted once the "chorus" erupts. So wonderful.

    General Commenti think its about suicide and someone saying that it'll be alright,but you know it wont so you just want to kill yourself even more now.

    General Commenthe told his son
    he wants to kill himself
    he said it's alright
    I have had enough of this life

    With that part I always thought it was the son saying alright as in "it's alright, go kill yourself, i've had enough of your life"

    anyone agree?
