You got drunk
Drunker than you'd ever been
You hailed a cab and passed out cold
Before you told the driver where to go
So he drove you around Chicago
You woke up sicker than you'd ever been
You threw up and shit the bed

And there was no one there to clean you up
And the room was spinning all around
Make a fist and take a deep breath
Close your eyes and count to ten
Just keep swinging ‘til you're over it
The mess you left had got you feeling pretty bad
But she is a maid I guess that's what she gets paid for

    General CommentProbably the most musically challenging, yet one of the most rewarding, songs on Achilles Heel. Pretty much describes getting really drunk, possibly autobiographical for David though I haven't read anything to confirm that. He does drink and had battled alcoholism in his past life.

    General CommentI think this describes a lot more than just a drunken night. For me it's about making mistakes in general, feeling regret and having to deal with the anger of others because of your mistakes.
    But in the end, everything will pass you just have to
    "Make a fist and take a deep breath
    Close your eyes and count to ten
    Just keep swinging until you're over it"
