"Someday I Will Treat You Good" as written by and Mark Linkous....
There's something going on around here
I could not crawl back if I tried
I couldn't wait around
I couldn't wait another second
Something going on around here

I left my baby on the side of the highway
She just couldn't see things my way

Someday I will treat you good
Someday I will treat you fine
Someday I will treat you good
You know I should

Everything that's made is made to decay
Well I'm shrinking bones in the sun
Won't you tell me why that
The beautiful ones are always crazy
She's whispering like Morticia now

I left my baby on the side of the road
I left her with a heavy load

Someday I will treat you good
Someday I will treat you fine
Someday I will treat you good
You know I should

Something going on around here
I could not crawl back if I tried
I left my baby on the side of highway
She just couldn't see things my way

Someday I will treat you good
Someday I will treat you fine
Someday I will treat you good
You know I should

    General Commentsome ladies are especially an added ball and chain. no matter what happens he wont go back to the one who causes the decay of beauty. he leaves her behind and gets caught up in his own disparage, but of course the lies will seem less crazy, and until the end, he will hear the nonsense that drives him

    General Commenti think the line is "she's whispering like a mortician now"
    a mortician is someone who prepares the dead for burial, or manages a funeral. just an overall morbid comparison, i'd say.
    i dont think it's about a bad woman. i think the singer just can't deal with her, because she's a little bit crazy (like all of us). and you know he wants to treat her good, or should be treating her good, someday he will work it out.
    there's such a creepyness. "something going on around here" like something abnormal or nightmarish. it's brilliant.

    General CommentEpic Quote LOL : "The beautiful ones are always crazy", great song and awesome album. Mark it's talking about a negative relationship, many diferences that he can't allow and he was in to a dark love story or a wicked love story. Funny song and awesome album.
