lifeblood: songs: background: pushing the needle too far

amy ray quote from 1990-09-xx: nomads*indians*saints, epic records press release:

"this song deals with alienation and the way we sometimes numb ourselves to things. obviously, the needle suggest a drug analogy, but it's also like the needle on a meter. but it's a symbol, not a literal usage like neil young's 'the needle and the damage done.' it's about the things people do to numb themselves to the pain of their situation."
