  • Samantha from Costa Mesa, Cain this song they talk about a "Milk carton mug shot baby missing since 1983" and then about 20 years of dirty needles if you add 1983 and 20 you get 2003 which is the year the CD was released which leads me to beleive that the baby and the prostitute are the same person
  • Brandon from Saskatoon, Canadaya this song has a pretty sweet beginning guitar riff, pretty cool but i like how it goes
  • Joanne from Regina, CanadaI love this song, it's one of my favourites, gives you a different perspective on these things.
