    Katy was a Doctor guy friend he knew in Asia.They used to party and sing together.Then this guy told him your going to see a change in me. When he went to see him in Florida (Biscayne Bay) it turns out he became a Tranny... Male to Female now named Katy that was trying to bust out of him for a while.

    Ends with:

    Katy lies
    You could see it in her eyes
    But imagine my surprise
    When I saw you

    Are you with me Doctor Wu
    Are you really just a shadow
    Of the man that I once knew?
    She is lovely yes she's sly
    And you're an ordinary guy
    Has she finally got to you?
    Can you hear me Doctor?

    Doctor Wu is about a paradoxical ex-Marine who turned to drugs after getting PTSD. He's broke and has a shattered psyche. Also, he saw action in Cuba. Presumably, he and his unit won that engagement resoundingly, or it would have got a mention that his buddies bought it.
    Paradoxical because there's no such thing.

    This interpretation has been marked as poor. view anyway
