I was drifting
into dreaming
and I saw something
I hadn't seen before

Two young ladies
I hadn't seen since high school
holding a piece of me
inside a plastic jar

And there was a hook attached to it
and they were attached at the hip

I was driving
on vacation
And I saw something
I hadn't seen in years

A man was seizing
on the pavement flailing
and I did nothing
a white dressed woman carried him off

I didn't lift a finger
I didn't stop my car
I just kept on driving
I didn't help that man at all

And I hope he forgives me

    General CommentThe second verse is pretty straight forward, but what's up with the 'piece of me inside a plastic jar' bit?

    General CommentPowerful stuff. Everyone can empathize with guilt and selfishness.

    General CommentThe first verse is hard to decipher, but based on the theme of the song, I'd guess he cheated on one girl with the other. Maybe they were good friends before the incident (which why they are attached literally at the hip).
