At least we'll get a story from it.
Let's go find a nice place to sit.
Where we can spit in the wind;
Confess all our sins,
Before we turn oursevles in.

We must be out of our wits,
Like a temptress in love.
We're going to pull down the bridge,
Just to watch it come tumbling down.

Oh, yeah...
All right...

Just give me one reason.
Just give me one - check it, get it now.
Just give me one reason.
Check it, get it, oh I'll take you all down.

Confess to doctors not priests,
Who you gonna trust or believe?
Leave the priests to the recently deceased,
And let the rest of us get on with our lives

We could get that bullet out. There's a man I've been hearin' about.
And for a nominal fee,
He'll do anything anything we need.
Oh yeah, all right

Chorus

Before we go there my friend.
Tell me, where have you hidden the cash?
Tell me where you stashed it,
Before the life leaks out of that hole in your brest...

There's a hole in your breast...
There's a hole in your breast.

Chorus

    General CommentI get the strong feeling that this song is about an abortion.

    "Where we can spit in the wind;
    Confess all our sins,
    Before we turn ourselves in."
    -They're weighing their options

    "We're going to pull down the bridge,
    Just to watch it come tumbling down."
    -It's such a touchy subject that people feel strongly about

    "Confess to doctors not priests,
    Who you gonna trust or believe?"
    -The church has its found views on the subject

    "We could get that bullet out. There's a man I've been hearin' about.
    And for a nominal fee,
    He'll do anything anything we need.
    Oh yeah, all right "
    -The bullet being something that could destroy your life, and considering the size of bullets, about the size of a baby embryo, going to an abortion clinic that could take care of the situation "for a nominal fee"

    "Before the life leaks out of that hole in your breast"
    -Before it's too late to have it done

    I'd love some feedback and what other people think. I have no idea if I'm right, this is one of my favorite songs by TLG, and it's just the feeling i get from it.
