"Beyond and Back" as written by and John Doe Exene Cervenka....
I'll go somewhere else I'll move to the couch it's darker in the dark it's darker in the day I forgot you were a liar now it's five to twelve shut up and smoke and I'll go somewhere else no more orange nightgowns one o'clock and then it ends this is no place to be addicted to another place never get to go don't you want me to make it I took as long as you took you take a lot from me I forgot you were a thief I want to be like her instead I stay nowhere marked down in the basement lousy at the bottom a life of intermission

    General CommentIn the classic documentary *Decline of Western Civilization* X-ene (sp?) said she got the title from a bible tract. The song is about one of those battles married people experience - about sleeping on the couch, about her disappointment with her husband, her jealousy for an unnamed woman, his callous attitude - and then by one AM she's back in bed with him; the fight is over but not her bitterness. Anybody who has been married knows the feeelings expressed in this song.
