"Dirty Sticky Floors" as written by David Gahan and Knox Chandler....
Waiting for the last time
For my friend to change my mind
Waiting for the last drop
Seems like a long long time
Maybe I should go back home
I'll sit and wait right by the phone
Praying over the porcelain throne
On my dirty sticky floor

Ask me what I want
Easy that's just more
How long will I wait for you
Twice as long as I did before
Standing in the freezing snow
Maybe you left I just don't know
I'll soon be lying on my own
On some dirty sticky floor

I hope no one can see me
The tin man says I'm doing fine
That lion ain't gonna get me
See that gun right there it's mine
I've painted a face where I burnt the floor
Now the face has become my devil's door
Laying in the back room
On my dirty sticky floor

On my dirty sticky

    General CommentIt all seems to me like the situation he stopped using.. (Waiting for the last time for my friend to change my mind - he was overdosed by special strong mixture of heroin and cocaine for the last time, he was clinically dead for two minutes and as he stated, it changed his thinking, life). "ask me what I want/easy that's just more" - he himself told, that he didn't know when to stop, he always wanted more and more.. And I see this as the "white suited-up Dave" is kind of his dealer or the internal desire for drug, he wants to "lift the anchors" and get high, but the other Dave is so confident in himself and his purity, that he won't allow it.. The boat symbolizes to me a trip, but it won't move, it is impossible.. It is a boat full of remembrance of drug obsessed life and as the dirty Dave lies here, he is a part of that junk garbage and clean Dave is free to leave it behind and go away..
    Well, do you agree? :-)
