"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 you're 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 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.
