Listerine covers your tracks
Doesn't do shit for the facts

I'm lying on the couch
Scary memories fill my mouth
How did I love a breaking thing?
How did I sleep through a kidnapping?
How'd I trust a band who'd leave me one by one?
I only wanted the spark
I only wanted your hearts
It's hard
It's hard and stupid
I'm the one who let you do it
I only wanted the high
Wasn't much more to my life

I couldn't wait to come down
There's nothing here but the ground

    General Commentk, this one kind of jumps around a little bit...

    First part sounds like its about going down on someone she shouldnt have been, then moves on to talking about how her kid was taken away from her, then about the band breaking up and i think theres hints of drug use scattered about.

    General CommentAnother great Hersh song, along with Black Francis, she's the best songwriter of her generation.

    Anyway, I think Listerine covers up the alcohol.
