Nope. The live recording of "How Can You Do It Alone" (apparently an early
version) is lighter and more about sexual matters, but this has been
reworked into a much rawer and uglier song that's about pain and lonliness

I prefer the live version, BTW. It's more subtle, and I think it says the
same thing without being so painful, which makes it hard to listen to.
