Now let me place you in my past, with other precious toys.
You could be my open road
You could be the reason why
You could ease my heavy load
But i'm gonna freeze you out now
She left you with no other option. It's hurting you bad. This one meant the world to you, and she always will. 'So if you're ever feeling lowdown in the fractured sunshine, I'll help you feel the noise.' Even after ratting on you.
Everybody's rats to somebody.
I wonder if this is about Lee knowing something was off between Thurston and Kim. A lot of this album seemed cryptic, but in a way where they're dancing around the truth...
