"Outside This Bar" as written by and John Mark Eitzel....
The hospital wouldn't admit you
So we go home again
Right back to the same old room
Right back to the same old thing

But you know you're just another girl
Come from some carry-out in hell
You're just another story how they fucked up the life
Of a sweet girl

We'll sit and look at the street
Watch the El Dorados roll by
You can't look your murderers
You can't look them in the eye

But you know they can always spot you
From a mile away
They give you anything you want
They'll do anything you say

And outside this bar there's no one alive
Outside this bar how does anyone survive
Together you and me
You know we've gotta destroy this world
See'mon darling we've gotta destroy this world

And I remember when
Your girlfriend would put you on display
You'd be the life of the party
Til they come and drag you away

But in the end we'll watch the pattern
As it begins to tear
We'll see the chaos that's underneath
All the clothes that the angels wear

And outside this bar there's no one alive
Outside this bar how does anyone survive
Together you and me
You know we'll never destroy this world
See'mon baby I wish we could destroy this world
Outside this bar

Together you and me turn this quiet night into silence
Together we'll turn this love into violence

    General CommentStaggering and beautiful. It sounds like an anthem for all the drinkers out there; he's musing in his intoxication, "How would any of us manage to struggle through life if we didn't have this bar?" To him, the world outside the bar doesn't hold as much value as what's in it. The idea of abandoning it sends him into terror. It's his place of comfort.
