Black as night black as life
Hungry for some of that easy life
Stoney cold and a twistin' moon
Live it fast you're gonna get there soon

Look out world 'cause we know how to fight
Someone's gonna get shot tonight

Black eyed blonde and a blonde eyed black
Come from hell and we won't be back
I'm in your blood and I'm in your bones
Better dead than to be stuck alone

Look out world cause here she comes
Suckin' on her painted thumbs

Hey, it's ok I will never go away
Hey, it's alright when the
Day turns into night

    My Interpretation

    Always thought this song was about heroin.

    "Black eyed blonde and a blonde eyed black Come from hell and we won't be back I'm in your blood and I'm in your bones Better dead than to be stuck alone"

    The junkie tried to get clean but it's in their blood and bones. dope will always be a part of them. They want an escape, even if that means death. They would rather be dead than live the lonely life of an addict. Several songs on S&D seem to deal with addiction, namely the ones William wrote. ("Save Me," "Girlfriend" "Dirty Water" etc.)

Gentle Hour
Yo La Tengo
This song was originally written by a guy called Peter Gutteridge. He was one of the founders of the "Dunedin Sound" a musical scene in the south of New Zealand in the early 80s. From there it was covered by "The Clean" one of the early bands of that scene (he had originally been a member of in it's early days, writing a couple of their best early songs). The Dunedin sound, and the Clean became popular on american college radio in the mid to late 80s. I guess Yo La Tengo heard that version. Great version of a great song,
