about

A demo we felt didn't quite fit with the sound of the Opiates album. But we like it enough :)
The song is about Liz and Richard, in 'you know what film'. And not just a bit of my sense of summer heat boredom, when your partner adds to the heavyness. Oh, I feel a drama coming on....
File under: Billie writes another country/soul drama story that could be set in the mid west, or The deep south somewhere.....

Track Name: Are You Loathsome Tonight demo (The Opiates)
are you loathsome tonight?

again the sun is sinking low
it’s been burning hot all day
you turn around and then you say:
i guess it looks like rain

i feel the heat i watch your pace
i feel savagely ignored
i feel the dust settle like lead
and heaven knows i’m bored

tonight are you loathsome
are you loatsome tonight

tonight are you loathsome
are you loatsome tonight

i knew it would be dinner time
the story’s getting old
and i wonder will the taste grow stale
before the food is cold

when nobless wanes tristesse remains
like liz and richard knew
so why don’t we pull the last damn straw and finish
what those two couldn’t do

tonight are you loathsome
are you loathsome tonight

tonight are you loathsome
are you loatsome tonight

i don't know why you're so tired
we're not done for the day
tonight.....





ad lib:
oh common let’s be loathsome
