This is another track with demos that go back to the mid-1990s, only to be finished recently.


Bobby likes to get high every night
Likes to watch Tee Vee until he can’t remember what
His real life was like
Suzy likes to date a lot of guys
Likes to take them home and make them watch as she uncrosses
Her smooth, stockinged thighs
She likes to look into their eyes

Me, I’ve traded in my gavel and my robe
I just could not sit in judgement knowing what I know

Let’s step in the big black box and disassociate
We’ll break down, we'll all just go to pieces
Let’s decide not to decide, we’ll leave it all up to fate
'Cause this is not a game someone can win
In the end you’re back where you begin
No one comes out quite like they went in the
Big black box

Jack and Jill sneak off to cheap motels
Catch a thrill by playing dirty, then they sneak on back
To their new white house up on the hill
Someone cleans up the mess and sends them a bill

Me, I’ve given up on blaming someone else
I could not pass judgement without sentencing myself
