"Salt On A Slug" as written by and Brooks Nielsen Anthony Braun-perry....
Her eyes burn, like salt on a slug as she melts
She can't keep it up, she needs sleep
But she can't find the time
So she feeds the fire, can't let it fade
Hopes someone will see her and take her away

Her eyes scream
'Cause she can't keep out the dream
As they blend into her daze
She bends 'cause she's too afraid
Can't let it fade
Hopes someone will see her and take her away

She bends 'cause she's too afraid to end
Their forever bender goes on
Tries pull it together and more on the fire
Can't let it fade
Hopes someone will see her and take her away

Her island was paradise, but everyone's gone
Can't close her eyes, or turn down the song
Hide in the night and keep bending on
She feeds the fire, can't let it fade
Hopes someone will see her and take her away

Her eyes burn, like salt on a slug as she melts
She can't keep it up, she needs sleep
But she can't find the time
So she feeds the fire
Can't let it fade
Hopes someone will see her take her away

Her island was paradise, but everyone's gone
Can't close her eyes, or turn down the song
Hide in the night and keep bending on
She feeds the fire, can't let it fade
Hopes someone will see her and take her away

    General CommentThis is about a girl with deep deep sadness who is plagued with self-denial. She uses meth to try and cope. She is still miserable and she knows meth isn't curing her, it's keeping her where she is. But it's all she's got. She lives in a world of self-created illusion and false hope. She is dependent on men and hopes that she can use her beauty to lure one in who will save her from her misery. All her relationships have gone to shit and she has no lasting friendships. This is because no one wants the person she has become in their lives, even though at times she can be so wonderful to be around.

    She can be a great deal of fun. And she's one of the best lays you'll ever have. But stay away from her. She will ruin you. She will do her best to make your island like hers, so she doesn't live in misery alone. STAY AWAY.
