If there's a nurse that takes your ears in rations,
sets a plate to feed the stifled steel.
If there's a nurse that feeds your germ soaked dinners on a tray of bones and orange peels.

For yourself, you'd crash a secret word.
For some love, you'd fall to break your neck.

    General Commenti love the live version of this song. as far as meaning goes, i hate to take the nurse line literally, but i suppose abigail could be taken as a nurse who takes care of the speaker and shows him love during whatever rehabilitation process he is in.

    i don't know what the "secret word" could be. but i think the line "for some love you'd fall to break your neck" represents the fragility of the speaker, showing that for some love - probably from abigail's care - he would resort to self-flagellation.

    General Commentor it's about Abigail Williams
    en.wikipedia.org/wiki/…

    Who ever Abigail is, Darroh seems to write about her a lot. There is this song, the early demo of DOTM called Abbey's Account, and she's mentioned in An Occurrence During The Restoration Process and in Granny Niblo
