  • This stark track was inspired by a group of young prostitutes that Crosby observed near his hotel in Belgium. "It was cold out and they had these skinny legs," he recalled to Rolling Stone. "They were trying to entice these drunk animals to f--k them. It was so gross, man. So sad."

    "I imagined these girls had come from Kosovo or some place really hideous and they were working their way west, trying to get their way out of the horror show that happened in the middle of Europe," he continued. "But that's all imaginary. Mostly, I started thinking about where they hide their heart, their soul, their spirit when they're doing it. How do they disassociate? You can be damn sure they do."
