"Can't Go Back" as written by Bobby Gillespie, Andrew Innes, Martin Duffy and Gary Mounfield....
I looked into my baby's eyes
I tried so hard to find some light
When I looked there was no one there
No one there at all

I walked on down a crowded street
I hard somebody talk to me
When I turned around to speak
There was no one there at all

Can't go back, I can't go back
Can't go back, I can't go back
Can't go back, I can't go back
To the place I was before

I stuck a needle in my arm
I stuck it in my baby's heart
She looked so hot and sexy
She wasn't there at all

I heard some one break in my house
They had a gun they had a knife
But it was all behind my eyes
There was no one there at all

Can't go back, I can't go back
Can't go back, I can't go back
Can't go back, I can't go back
To the place I was before

My baby looked into my eyes
She tried so hard to find some light
When she looked there was no one there
No one there at all

Can't go back, I can't go back
Can't go back, I can't go back
Can't go back, I can't go back
To the place I was before

    Song MeaningThese lyrics are not entirely correct, second verse for instance should rather be "i am walking down a quiet street, i heard somebody talk to me, when i turned around to speak, there was no one there at all" it fits well with the description of paranoia and hallucination in connections with drug abuse that SCRM has been busy with over a long time. My interpretation of this song is that drugs are bad and that they can affect you in harmful ways. There is no way back from abuse.
