"Common Girl" as written by and Alex Kristian Scally Victoria Garance Alixe Legrand....
You used to live in this part of town
Until you hit the ground
She makes movies where she cries on cue
She still lives downtown

But it's ok
'Cause she's common anyway
And the streets are all filled
With the strangers, who pay the bills

She's the one with the lazy eye
Promises never come filled
Takes the pills and hides the notices
Cartoon rings of ill will

But it's ok
'Cause she's common in every way
And the streets are all filled
With the strangers, pay the bills

Nobody special done a good thing
For somebody else
Taking advantage of that good thing
For nobody else

    General CommentFrom the Men's Journal article Demystifying Ayahuasca: "You face jaguar woman, and as you suckle at her breast, she throws you off into a pit of vipers." After you survive this journey you feel changed. You are changed. But as you continue on with your life you realize your existence is just as mundane as it was before. Throughout your daily routine you see the jaguar woman's totems everywhere you look, but you know you're in the same common town and you are the same common person that you were before you faced her. Ultimately it falls on you to fulfill the promises she made to you in your dream journey.
