Where the Sun Never Shines

about

Basically a breakup song. When I remixed my older songs, I left this one as is because it's a perfect example of a dry mixing technique I used to do which didn't use reverb or compression.

lyrics

So I've given up the ghost of loving you
in the midst of this foul life it made for a great imaginary view
my behavior is not acceptable and I'm not here to defend
but I'm clearly not a priority over your drugs or your druggie friends

... fuck you ...

what a rotten way to end it, I really have to say
maybe I've spent to many nights alone to have it any other way
I hate it all I scream, I scream it at the walls
I'm sick of giving money to whores and
I don't like these bullshit nagging calls

but I'm alive in your town
where the sun never shines
I'm a liar and a clown
an addict of every thought-crime
and what choice did I have
in a world so unkind
so full of witches like you who
spend their nights
scrounging for highs

So here I sit all alone did I make a big mistake?
I need something more in my life than someone who only takes?
20 contacts on dial but I don't want them to phone
cause loving someone whose faking their love is worse than being alone

but I'm alive in your town
I'm alive in your town
I'm alive
...

but I'm alive in your town
where the sun never shines
I'm a liar and a clown
an addict of every thought-crime
and what choice did I have
in a world so unkind
so full of witches like you who
spend their nights
scrounging for highs

[repeat]

fucked up yeah yeah ... duh...

The "fucked up yeah yeah ... duh ... " is a reference to that stupid Pussy Liquor song by Rob Zombie and how much I despise people whose only priority in life is messing up their own heads
