Two step, Behind the rest,
One fingertip too long
A hole, A hole in the box they carry,
Pours sugar in the road
Pours dimes in diamond Jim,
Two months to fill him in
A hole

    My Interpretation
    One of Throwing Muses greatest songs lyrically and melodically. In interviews Kristin and Tanya cited dreams for inspiration for the lyrics. I think this was inadvertently one of their most honest self critiques . "Two step behind the rest" - although Throwing Muses were critically lauded, they never reached the same level of mainstream success their contemporaries (Pixies, Breeders) have. "One fingertip too long." - a literal interpretation of the band's shortcomings during rehearsals and recording.of guitar lines. "A hole in the box they carry, Pours sugar in the road" - A poetic allegory for the band who crafted some amazing pop songs during their career but their creativity and longevity was all too limited and brief in the scope (box) of the 90s indie music scene. There are live performance recordings where this song really shines, crescendoes and valleys with incredible drumming (Dave) and guitar work(Tanya). It was as if they quietly knew they couldn't go on. Tanya of course left for the breeders and then her solo career. Kristin went solo was well.
