This song captures the emotions of a drug binge whilst contemplating existence, according to Rufus. It overflows with desperation with all that's wrong in the world, bubbled back in to the microcosm of a reflective dark inner turmoil only temporarily kept at bay through chemical euphoria; which eventually erupted of course. Brilliant song masterfully orchestrated as only Rufus can do.
Thank you for the bitter knowledge
Guardian angels who left me stranded
It was worth it, feeling abandoned
Makes one hardened but what has happened to love
