You can do something
Read between the lines
Strong, Painful, Honest
Nakedly candid
The story of desperate
On Drugs, on the run
The girl almost made it
Horrified
You can't ask Alice, questions no more
A smile and a dishrag
Questions no more
The story is awful
Divorced by a gun
The girl almost made it
The girl almost won
Los Angeles

She won love
Say it again
When you walk amongst the dead
Everybody knows
You can't talk about yourself
Everything shows

    Song MeaningThe meaning is obviously about the way drug culture is portrayed... For instance, Los Angeles is reknowned for being both a celebrity-ridden city and also for having an underground drug network, and how it's become glamorous for one to be high constantly. "The story of desperate, on drugs, the girl almost made it, the girl almost won" - the character featured in this song became addicted and died after falling into the wrong lifestyle in Los Angeles, even though she thought she'd get the brilliant showcased jet-set life. And the line "You can't ask Alice" reffers to an infamous book called Go Ask Alice portrayed as a diary, chronicling the life of a drug addict *spoiler* who ends up dead from an overdose.
