THERE BY THE GRACE OF GOD

The song contained the line “And all the drugs in the world can’t save us from ourselves“.
A nearly literally quote from ‘Coma White‘, a song by the band’s idol Marilyn Manson
with the words: “And all the drugs in this world can’t save her from herself”.

OUT OF TIME

Written by, who else, Jagger/Richards, with Brian Jones on marimba was
also a hit for label mate Chris Farlowe…
