"Helena Won't Get Stoned" as written by and Colin Meloy....
I'm out on a bender
Drink too much I might get you
You're out on a bender too

Sleep through the morning
Sheets of mine invite me
You sleep through the morning too

And it's only right
You should stay the night
Or stay a month or two

But Helena won't get stoned
Helena won't get stoned
I think it's part of her Catholic education
Helena won't get stoned

For good measure these chains
I wear they chafe me
Just for pleasure sure

Our Lady of the Rockies
Sweet virgin bliss surround me
Sportin' walkie talkies, yeah

You got your ears on baby
My soft old lady
Leave your past behind

But Helena won't get stoned
Helena won't get stoned
I think it's part of her Catholic education
Helena won't get stoned

And it's only right
You should stay the night
Or stay a month or two

But Helena won't get stoned
Helena won't get stoned
I think it's part of her Catholic education
Helena won't get stoned

    General CommentI think it's interesting that Colin seems to switch back and forth between the style that he uses now, the english major sort of things, and the more party song style that he had with Tarkio. The difference is really evident in this song.

    "Our Lady of the Rockies
    Sweet virgin bliss surround me"

    and the drinking and getting stoned parts

    General CommentHelena seems to be a woman in this song, but Helena, Montana is Colin Meloy's hometown, so it's a metaphor. Maybe a comment on the contradiction of drinking too much being okay, but smoking weed being too "out there" for straitlaced, Catholic Helenans.

    Our Lady of the Rockies is a large statue of Mary overlooking Butte, Montana. (Talk about a hard-drinking town.)
