    This song is about alcohol.... Every line of it.... Once you know that the mystery of this song is solved....

    This song is complex to understand unless you realize your dealing with two different women. Lets start with her in her satin dress in a room where YOU do what YOU don't confess. The lyric says she's lying back. l believe that implies she's doing nothing but watching.So the dude is doing something to himself that in someway hurts either physically and, or emotionally. Perhaps an S&M relationship? This concept is strengthened when the line, I think it's a shame when l get feeling better when I'm feeling no pain, is added. As far as the other girl, who he seems to care about, wears faded jeans. He warns Sundown to beware of being caught. rla
