"candy cane crawl" as written by and Gregory E Dulli....
parlez no, they won't mind, six to nine's a long, long time
but they won't miss it, they'll just forget it
that shit'll twist your little mind if you let it
so, slow down... lean in, call up that feeling
you get when you're stealing, that all too revealing side of you
who loves you true, but they'll just forget it, they'll just forget it

that shit'll twist your little mind if you let it
who love the blue sky, who wear the dark eye
so, slow down... lean in, call up that feeling
you get when you're dealing, you start to believe it

and there ain't nobody, who loves me, it's starting
to sink in, so lean in, and start to decieve it, that all too revealing

slow down... lean in, call up that feeling
you get when you're dealing, that all too deceiving side of you
who loves you true, but they'll just forget it, they'll just forget it
that shit'll twist your little mind if you let it
who love the blue sky, who wear the dark eye

so, slow down... lean in, call up that feeling
you get when you're reeling, that all too concealing side of you
who loves you true, but they'll just forget it, they'll just forget it

that shit'll twist your little mind if you let it
who love the blue sky, who wear the dark eye
who love the blue sky, who wear the dark eye
who love the blue sky, who wear the dark eye

    General CommentI really dig this song. For what it's worth, Greg said that this was the first song he wrote after he was clean.

    General CommentOh my god, only 1 other comment here! This song is the BEST song a brilliant album. It's so sultry & soothing in sound, but you listen to the words & they are all about TRYING your hardest to get clean & get rid of your demons. Feeling bad for yourself & falling back into your old ways, how easy that is. The blue sky/dark eye is the good/bad always there in your mind, dictating what you will do.......amazing song.
