"Fountain and Fairfax" as written by and Greg Dulli....
Angel, I'm sober
I got off that stuff
Just like you asked me to
Angel, come closer
So the stink of your lies
Sinks into my memory
She said baby, forever, but I don't like to be alone
So don't stay away too long
Baby, forever, well it's Tuesday now
I hear him breathing inside of her
Let me drink
Let me tie off
I'm really slobbering now
Let it stink
Let it dry up
It's impossible
Angel, forever
Don't you promise me what you cannot deliver
Angel, together
I'll be waiting for you on Fountain and Fairfax

    General CommentI heard that this song is about alcoholism- Fountain and Fairfax is where one of the big AA meetings is held in L.A. That line "Angel come closer, so the stink of your lies sinks into my memory" sounds to me like she's been drinking though she's not supposed to and he can smell the alcohol on her breath.

    General CommentSeems like some girl telling a guy they can only be together if he gets clean, but he has a relapse for some reason, maybe seeing her with another guy? Not totally sure but I love this song!

    General CommentWhig's classic. I love this song, must be about alcoholism and drug abuse, he's trying to stay clean, but he's suffered a setback because he's seen his lover with someone else. He got clean for her and this is how he is repaid. He's just jumping off the wagon and imagining what's going on between his girl and the person he's seen her with. Beautiful.

    General Commentsong that made me fall in love with them. it's absolutely gorgeous. i think it's about he finds out that she's been cheating on him and he just sinks into this giant hole of booze and drugs.

    General CommentCertainly. His answer to everything is drinking it all away. I love the guitars on this entire album. I love how you can just hear the anguish creeping out of every song.
