When I first heard Damian’s song Down on the Bowery (released April 13, 2023), it didn’t take long to figure out the song was about Alison and the history of their recurrent stays at The Bowery Hotel located at 333 The Bowery in New York City’s lower East Side. But what intrigued me more were certain lyrics that made my ears instantly perk up. Specifically, “blood on the walls in a siren city, your face all cut up but you looked so pretty.” What in the world could that be about, I wondered. I even tweeted to Damian about it back in April, 2023:
I have so many questions about that lyric!
