"Then And Now"
(Duff Mckagan, Paul Solger)

"This is the song about getting sober. My friend Paul Soldier helped me write it.
We were in this old band called the Fartz, a punk rock band." - Duff

When I first saw you baby, yeah you were gone,
So far gone
The scene was set for armageddon, and your
grip on me was strong


If you saw me yesterday, you wouldn't recognize my face
If you saw me yesterday, yeah you might've ran away

Sister uptown, you're a metaphor for all lifes grief and pain
Brother downtown, such a devil, make a snake out of any man



Don't feel like crawlin' out of my cage
I used to say,
Another lame song and dance about a thing
from my past,
I hope it's not boring you
In the end I lost a few friends
But I got up and I ran away

Drugs party in 526 is where I got my kicks
But where are they today?
Dead and gone, the damage is done, I got
nothin' else to say
