"Dead Road 7" as written by and Jamie/mosshart Hince....
This dead road leads down
To that dead road and back
To the road where the oldest road
Met the first dead road that cracked
Made the second and curved the third
Forked the forth and said to the fifth
"If you walk just a couple of miles
You're gonna come across the sixth, the sixth, the sixth"
It runs into a ditch
Dead road seven is a bitch
Dead road seven is a bitch
Floating belly flush
Floating belly up, up, up, up
Go down there if you wish
Go down there if you wish
This dead road leads down
To that dead road and back
To the road where the oldest road
Met the first dead road and cracked
Made the second and curved the third
Forked the forth and said to the fifth
"If you walk just a couple of miles
You're gonna come across the sixth, the sixth, the sixth"
Dead road seven is a bitch
Dead road seven is a bitch
Floating belly flush
Floating belly up, up, up, up
Go down there if you wish
Go down there if you wish
Go down there if you wish
Dead road seven is a bitch
Dead road seven is a bitch
Floating belly flush
Floating belly up, up, up, up
Go down there if you wish
Go down there if you wish
Go down there if you wish

    General CommentWhen I listen to this song it gets me thinking about my past relationships and how, in a small town, relationships can overlap with others.

    It is like a web, one relationship connecting to another, down the various roads...Some people change (curve/fork), some people loose it (crack) and some people are just bitches (7).

    In the end of the song, VV gives a warning, "Go down there if you wish."

    General CommentI'm pretty sure this song is about hell.
    Especially cause of the line: You're gonna come across the 6, the 6, the 6
    666, number of the beast etc.

    Also the part about floating belly up could be about dead people floating about in hell. :P
    Cheerful thought!
