Rottenham talks about "If you ket me cheat on me (do you promise not to leave):
This song is intensely personal for me. Its based on true events surrounding my ex girlfriend Netty, who I cheated on with my neighbors girlfriend who looked like a Black version of her (she was Canadian). After she found out (from my neighbor), I asked her if cheating on me would make it right, and she said yeah. So she went out and found some guy that (she claimed) looked like a Persian version of me, and there it is.
Weeks later, I found out she was cheating on me with some Asian guy for like a year. She offered me the chance to cheat on her to make things even-steven, but i was done. She was losing teeth from her drug habit, and her sleep-driving was making me nervous. I still think about her sometimes, but mainly for the sex cuz she was pretty ok. Hey, I should make a song about that.
