"Medusa in Chains" as written by and John Paul Lawler....
Turn off the light when you leave
Switch off that evil sound
I'm trying hard not to breathe
till I'm on solid ground
Sometimes that's just how it goes
Take it from someone who knows
Eyes wide, tongue tied
She replied I'm lost inside

I'm not your miracle man
I'm not your spirit guide
Before this whole thing began
I had some sense of pride
Just one more night with your lips
Your company is hard to eclipse
Weak kneed, yes indeed, guaranteed
Make my heart bleed

Give me a reason to breathe
don't let my sun go down
I'll make you stand and receive
I'll be your sacred ground
Be my Medusa in chains, petrified
Only your beauty remains
Tell me baby, one more time
Won't you be a friend of mine?

Put out your E cigarette
take off your sequined shawl
Just try your best to forget
that I once made you crawl
Just one more sway of your hips
I love the way your confidence slips
You should be outlawed, Dear God!
Every single breath I applaud

Give me a reason to breathe
don't let my sun go down
I'll make you stand and receive
I'll be your sacred ground
Be my Medusa in chains, petrified
Only your beauty remains
Tell me baby, one more time
Won't you be a friend of mine?

    General CommentBest song on the new album, so damn catchy. I always love their slower songs, ('Milk and Money', 'Whistle for the Choir' and 'Look Out Sunshine')

    Not sure on the meaning, maybe break up sex or getting with an ex.
