The world can beat me black 'n' blue,
it can hurt so much it's just not true.
Down and out and down at heel,
but it sure can't change the way I feel.
I feel a strength so deep within
a love to wash away the sin.
Like the sound of the sea deep within a shell
to make your heaven when all around is hell.

All manner of things can make me sing.
But love is in my soul, love is in my soul.
All manner of things can make me sing.
But love is in my soul, love is in my soul.

The tension grows and clouds your eyes.
The swim upstreams, the bridge of sighs.
The cold stone walls and the metal jam.
The ugly roar from a dying man.
All these things that bring you down
mean nothing more than a laughing clown.
If you lift up your soul be strong be proud,
you'll never be just another face in the crowd.

Warren wanted a Beach Boys thing for this one, and Carl Wilson and Billy Hinsche came in, with Carl arranging the vocal parts. The other harmony vocalists (credited as the "Gentlemen Boys") were Jackson Browne, J.D. Souther, Zevon's longtime backers Waddy Wachtel and Jorge Calderon, and Linda Rondstadt/Stone Poneys guitarist Kenny Edwards.

Like a lot of the other comments are saying, I think this mainly about voyeurism. If the song was about his girlfriend, then why would he use the word spy. If you are a spy it means you shouldn't be caught, that is kind of the whole point, and if you are a voyeur, the whole point of the pleasure you get from it, is the fact that the other people don't know you are watching them. See a bit of a connection there?

I think much like another song “Anti-Matter” (that's also on the same album as this song), this one is also is inspired by a horrifying van crash the band experienced on Nov 3, 2022. This, much like the other track, sounds like it's an extension what they shared while huddled in the wreckage, as they helped frontman Garrett Russell stem the bleeding from his head wound while he was under the temporary effects of a concussion. The track speaks of where the mind goes at the most desperate & desolate of times, when it just about slips away to all but disconnect itself, and the aftermath.
