"Killing Time" as written by and David/gates Roach....
I need your confidence need to know you're mine
When it gets right down to the killing time
I know your heart is bad but it's all
I've ever had we can live our lives on this righteous crime

I got kicked when I was down
And a sailor took my girl to town
Then she licked my wounds with the sea dog's salt I drank a
Half a bottle of jack swore I'd never take you back by the bottle's
End I was on that phone

What you call compromise I don't understand what you call compromise I don't understand

How do you walk away? how do you walk away?
How do you walk away from a woman that gone and done you wrong?

    General CommentAwesome song, but there's not much mystery in the meaning. Basically this guy is so hung up on this girl, she treats him like shit, sleeps around, demands everything and gives nothing, but he can't let her go. The worst part is that he _knows_ what she's doing, and every time he tries to end it, he changes his mind, and goes crawling back to her.
