Let me drink some more, and I'll get back to you.

Billy wrote it after coming home from touring...
it is actually about seeing home and his friends
again after a long time.

Lyrics are funny like that. Some of the songs that
people think are very vague and filled with innuendo
are often about the most mundane things.

"Sometimes a cigar is only a cigar"

FWIW, MCIS is one of my favorite albums...

Like Black Francis said in SPIN about "Monkey Gone to Heaven":

"Do you know why God is '7'? Because it rhymes with 'heaven'."

Take a hit of LSD and it will all make sense.

I don't really know - that seems like the
logical conclusion.

"Tomorrow's just an excuse..." maybe means
that he keeps putting off coming home since
he is "wrapped up in the pleasures of the world"

The love stuff might just mean that on the
road, people love the image of you (rock star),
whereas, real friendship is home where people
have known you forever...(?)

Dunno - I need to drink to be able to really
breakdown lyrics

Seems like being drunk is the creative mojo of choice here at ARFcom



Damn straight! I have actually had to work
drunk before (was called in on a problem on
a Friday night during a business trip) - it was
interesting.
