"He Said He Had a Story" as written by and Casey Blue Crescenzo....
There was a silver circle sign
And she was standing at the door
We pressed our way right through the crowd
Our pace was quickened to her floor

There was a single fading light
And there was silk all on the wall
She had a lot of love to give
I was prepared to take it all
[But what did she do next?]

She had disrobed
And she was waiting on the floor
She asked me what it was I want
I thought that I wanted it all
[What did you say?]

I said "stand up and move your body to the bed"
She quickly stood and turned
And here's exactly what she said
"Please be soft and sweet to me,
This life has not been good you see.
It's hard with such a history
Buried in misery."
[And what did you do next?]

I broke a smile reminding that I paid her well
(Her lips were turned?)
And then I felt her hands
Unbuckling my belt
[So was it good?]

Oh, it felt like heaven
But I'm sure she was in hell
I made it clear I'd get my moneys worth
Out of the good she sells

Break and bind yourself to me
Deliver what you sold
You see that I will only take from you
And use it up
I'll use you up

What was your name?

Break and bind yourself to me
Deliver what you sold
You see that I will only take from you
To use it up
I'll use you up

What was your name?

    General CommentI agree, the silver circle sign is definitely the dime. But I think the "he" in "he said he had a story" is the dear hunter's father telling him about how he met Ms Terri. This cd seems to bring back up the father a lot.

    Lyric CorrectionTheres so many typos here, heres the actual lyrics:

    There was a golden circle chip, and it was chillin in the bag
    we ripped our way right through the plastic, our pace was not dampened by the lag,
    there was a single feigning light, and there was crumbs all on the walls,
    she had a lot of chips to eat, I was prepared to eat them all

    "And what did she do next?"

    She had crunched, and she was chewing on the floor.
    She asked me what it was I want, I thought that I wanted some pringles.

    "What did you say?"

    I said "Stand up and move chips to the bed."
    She quickly stood, and dropped the bags, and
    heres exactly what she said.

    "Please be soft and sweet to them, theyre fagile and will break you see
    its easy when they're so damn crunchy."

    "And what did you do next?"

    I broke them all reminding her that I paid for them.
    Her lips pouted, and then I reached into the bag.

    "So was it good?"

    they tasted like heaven, and I was captured by the smell-
    and I also made it clear I'd eat my weight out of the peanuts she deshelled.

    Break and feed your chips to me, deliver all cheetos you see
    that I will only take from you, and nom them up.
    Ill nom them up

    Where is the dip?

    General CommentThis song is sung by the Father, not the Dear Hunter, recalling his experiences with a whore at the dime. "What was your name?" Well, in all likelihood, it was a mystery, or rather, a Ms. Terri. ;-) Given The Dear Hunter's past, this gives him the proper motive to want to kill him, in addition to stealing his sons identity, to enter a new beautiful life. The boy and his innocence...

    General CommentThis song is about the boy and probably a few other soldiers and this one man tell's them all about a story he had where he went to a brothel and everything that the man says reminds the boy of his past or things he's seen or heard. "silver circle sign" the boys been to the dime he would recognize this. Maybe the boy recognizes the words used by the woman the man does the dirty with and recognizes them as words his mother (Ms. Terri) would use. Then I'm assuming that at some point in the boy's childhood the question of his father came up which I think is actually the subject of one of the songs in Act I so maybe Ms. Terri told the boy the father's name when he was a boy so the boy hearing all these things that sound so familiar he puts them all together and asks the man his name.

    Just what comes to mind when I hear this song. So the boy now knows this man is his father and he definitely doesn't like him.

    General Commenti think this is about Portly's experience with Ms.Leading because the song "This Beautiful Life" after is about The Boy, discovering such offensive things, and how he couldn't confront Portly, because every soldier had pride in him. The song is how he wants to go back to the home above the lake

    My InterpretationI'm pretty sure that it's "misery" rather than "mystery".

    General CommentIt sounds to me like the Dear Hunter re-telling his story to the person who saved him.
    The person is inquiring about the story and the Dear Hunter is lying about it, saying that he wasn't naive, that *she* was the fragile one, and that he was there to just have his way with her and then leave.

    We know that it is actually the other way around. Never let the truth get in the way of a good story!!
