Born the daughter of a comedian
Middle of the eighties
Someone turn that awful mouth-breathing down
Or else

Sally Hatchet lives in a hole in the ground
The longer it keeps raining the more she has to struggle to maintain a wonderful time
Oh yeah

Go on and laugh it up without me
I've got smoke in my lungs
And a past life in the trunk

Could he rattle by the way that she empties a few clips out
Do I have a choice now
Point that thing away from me
Lady

    My InterpretationFairly sure that it's: "Go on and laugh it up without me" rather than "Oh wanna love it up without me".

    It's an awesome track- outro is just epic. I've been struggling with the story behind this but I've narrowed it down in my mind to it being about the narrator meeting a girl who has become desensitised to happiness and so has to do more drugs to keep her on an even keel.

    I'm not sure about the break. To me it sounds like a change in narrator, but from who's perspective I don't know.

    The last verse and outro feels to me like it's about the moment the drugs are presented. From the trepidation in the narrators description, it sounds like he's not overly keen on the idea but see's no other options. What kind of drugs would be contained in 'clips' I'm not sure but as it leads into that euphoric and primal sounding outro that kind of makes sense to me.

    Or I could have gotten it very wrong!
