    General CommentIt's actually:
    "Melbourne is a tropical London
    I met a girl in a tropical London
    Abandoned in a tropical London"
    Melbourne has a lot in common with London, and it' (sub)tropical - thus "tropical London". He met Brody there, and it's also where she abandoned him.

    General CommentI think this song is definatly about Brody.
    "if you lose me you lose a good thing" - about there divorce.
    "Melbourne is a tropical London
    American in a tropical London" - Brody being from melbourne and she moved to america when she met tim, and later marrying him.
    "Medication led to an altercation" - the medication bit could mean either the antidepressants brody was prescribed when they were in marrage counsilling or it could also refere to drugs........causeing an altercation which is a heated argument

    General Commentthis is my fave rancid song ever, maybe because its about Brody, who is one of my idols. But i just think its really great, i guess the lyrics are so great cuz Tim must of felt so many emotions about the topic he was writting about.

    General CommentDiegop, Brody is the singer from The Distillers. I think she's written a song or two about him, too, and she's definitely mentioned him before.

    Anyway thanks for the clarification, mogsety!
