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 are you loathsome tonight

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.....
