"Devil's Broom" as written by and Joseph Lyburn Arthur....
Every time when I can't get enough to make it
Give me back every sense that I used to have
Waking up with my face down on the pavement
Everything that I own in a garbage bag

Where are you?
What did I do?
Why can't you see?
You mean everything to me to me

Waking up in the tank, disorderly break-up
And no one here will even tell me what I did
With the guilt and the shame completely vacant
It's hard to stay alive when you don't know how to live

Where are you?
What did I do?
Why can't you see?
You mean everything to me to me

Since you've gone ain't nobody else gonna save me
Cause I can't trade a bottle for an empty room
I just pray that the lord gonna come down and take me
Sweep me off the floor with the devil's broom

Where are you?
What did I do?
Why can't you see?
You mean everything to me to me

    General CommentThe narrator resorts to drugs and alcohol to dull the pain of someone who has left him, and has sunk so low that he doesn't even feel "the guilt and the shame" of it anymore. With no real solution in sight, he sullenly prays for death as a way out, while still calling out to his former lover in a pathetically oblivious way, asking "what did I do?" and not realizing that his substance abuse is the key component to his romantic (and legal) troubles.

    General CommentI figure I ought to say that jaysthename is absolutely right. I just wish I understood what a devil's broom is.
