ottomwa heights is just a name , council bluffs i’ve never been
a fire came and burned away the only thing she’d have liked to save
do you remember? do you recall anything at all about her?
eventually you’ll get the hang of what you need to navigate
some bars you’ll learn to not go in
some hearts you’ll learn you should not win
face down on linoleum, everybody knows how such stories go
these days i am trying to be better than i used to be.
do you remember? do you recall anything at all about her?
face down on linoleum. everybody knows
these days i am trying to be better than i used to be

    Song MeaningThis song appears to be (at least tangentially) about Mia Zapata, the lead singer for Seattle punk band The Gits, who was raped and murdered in 1993. The opening lyrics of this song are place names in and around the Seattle area where she lived and was killed.
