About the song
About someone who copes with life by drowning sorrows in the bottle....

Lyrics
Mary opens the long-locked door
and takes a look outside
shuffles past the family pet
and kicks the cans aside
 
She takes a left turn on her way
to get what she's been given
she waits in line to grab her share
of modern urban living
 
Mary hurries along the road
her next appointment waiting
they know her at the corner shop
they know her thirst needs slaking

Doesn't look beyond the faded picture on the wall
Couldn't care the phone is broke
'Cos no-one ever calls
 
Back in her home she sits alone
with daytime soaps and drinking
she waits until the dreams arrive
and drowns in wishful thinking

She's the queen of wishful thinking

Doesn't look beyond the faded picture on the wall
Couldn't care the phone is broke
'Cos no-one ever calls
