"Death of a Whore" as written by Juliette Lewis, Todd Morse, Jason Womack and Kemble Walters....
I feel dirty and cheap like I'm built from the street
Fresh blood and dead meat, another child's been beat
Yesterday is always too far away
And all my tomorrows won't save me today

High heels clippin' like clattering cans
You'll find the mark in the shadow of a man
I've been wronged by my wrongs again, oh Lord

All my life has come and gone, disappeared my mind
And I can't right my wrongs
I felt like nothing was real, all tattered and blue like a gutted sheep
And oh, I'm having visions again

Hawk eyes stare down a vacant hall
Down on your knees head blind to the call
One, two, oh, surprise, there's four
Locked in a room I ran for the door

Come on bitch, or should I call you a whore?
Knocked to the floor, my head opened and poured
I been raped and battered and stuffed like a dog
A ravaged animal, a slaughtered hog
Black turns to white, am I talking to God?

All my life has come and gone, disappeared my mind
And I can't right my wrongs
I felt like nothing was real, all tattered and blue like a gutted sheep
And oh, I'm having visions again

Fuck, fuck, fuck, fuck you and fuck you and fuck you some more
Fuck you and fuck you and fuck you some more
Fuck you and fuck you and fuck you some more
Fuck you and fuck you and fuck you some more

Fuck you and fuck you and fuck you some more
Fuck you, fuck you, fuck you, fuck you
Fuck you, fuck you, fuck you some more

Hush, hush little girl, don't you cry
Oh my God, wash from me, please
Grace me, my God, oh my God, wash from me

    General CommentI think this song is talking about how women are considered whores when they have been mistreated and it sounds like she is beating the shit out of someone.

    General CommentThis song is the story of a prostitute. She has a crap life - she gets beaten around and feels 'dirty and cheap'. I also think that she gets raped, so when she says, 'I've been wronged by my wrongs again' she's saying I got raped, because I was a prostitute. She believed prostituting herself to be wrong, and that it was the cause of the sexual violation she experienced. So she's remembering the pain of that time in her life and how ashamed of herself she is. And at the end she's kind of like why did this happen blah blah. And the hush little child is like her inner child, or remembering herself when she was little. She's like I can't believe I went through this crap, and she's trying to calm herself down. And her visions are remebering what happenned.
