"Bloody Mary" as written by Christopher A. Chaney, David Michael Navarro, Stephen Andrew Perkins and Steve Isaacs....
Night bird scatter last call
Pleading needing a house call

Oh three o'clock and Mary's still
Working late up in the hills
Bloody Mary goes
Heaven only knows

Mary saves the night again
Plastic bags for plastic friends
Mary's got your medicine tonight

Stop now your manic complaining
Soon there's an end to the waiting

Oh she's the queen of midnight runs
Cell phones and the rolled up ones
Desperate don't despair
Call and Mary's there

Mary saves the night again
Plastic bags for plastic friends
Mary's got your medicine tonight
Bloody Mary's always on the phone
Never have to be alone
Mary's gonna bring you back to life

She drops the note into her bag
And laughs so you don't look so bad
She knows sometime soon
She'll be back for you

One by one they always call
High they stand and down they fall
All in all our Mary does them wrong
(she'll be back for you)
Bloody Mary saves the night again
Plastic bags for plastic friends
Mary's got your medicine tonight
Bloody Mary saves the night again
Plastic bags for plastic friends
Mary's got your medicine tonight
[X2]
Bloody Mary's got your medicine tonight

    General CommentI think this song is about Marijuana. It really fits if you read the lyrics. Bloody Mary could be the drug itself or the seller. It adresses how dependent people become to the drug, and how the seller or the drug know the user will be back.

    General CommentI think this song is about a prostitute and about the guys who always call her when they're lonely and in need of comfort. The "plastic bags" (condoms) are as disposible as her "plastic friends", as she goes from one call to the next.
