The ashtray says you were up all night
When you went to bed with your darkest mind
Your pillow wept and covered your eyes
And you finally slept while the sun caught fire

    This song is fitting to Jesse Pinkman's situation in Breaking Bad season 2.

    I thought this song was about being stuck in a certain mood, maybe about depression, and just needing a shot in the arm, or some motivation. Whatever the meaning, very fun song.

    Brings me back to the Wilco concert at middle-of-nowhere Sayreville, New Jersey...there was a drunken douchebag in front of me, falling over himself and being disruptive. Jeff Tweedy glared at him, made eye contact, and (I think) gave him the finger while angrily singing "maybe all I need is a shot in the arm"....he was probably thinking "maybe all you need is a punch in the face"...</memorable Wilco concert moment>
