Could you point me towards
A quiet gathering
Full of bugs and holes
Where any word said to you
Holds a liquored, puzzled truth

It's just a habit

If I slur a bit
It's just because I'm confused
Don't think much of it
My days belong to you
If you're kind, my nights can too

It's just a habit

    General CommentIt seems to me that this song is about alcoholism, specifically his denial about the increasing hold it has on his life. Alcohol is a way for the character in the song to escape from the confusion and ugliness of the world to a place where everything is "quiet" and where anything that is said holds a "truth" to it. To minimize how much he relies on alcohol, he calls it "just a habit" and attributes his slurring to only being "confused." But the entire time, the problem is escalating until it's poised to take over his whole life.
