(Swans - July 2, 2007)  

I shouldn't have drunk that much.
Fucking women. All the same.
So blonde she was—creamy skin
The deep blue of her eyes was promising heaven.
And her ass... never more. Ho Lord,
Shouldn't have drunk that much
I'm wrecked.
My love has wrecked.
I'm all alone and sick
This junk of a rod is merely wrecking my scruff.
