The meaning of Living wreck


Does anybody knows the meaning of the lyrics of Living Wreck?
I can't tell if it's second degree humour or flat out stupid?
Is he talking about a girl who promised him something and then dumped him and therefor sees her as some type of monster?
The first verse almost makes me think he's talking about a grandma (took off your hair, pull out your teeth,...).

Those are weird lyrics!

Okay, I've got my answer: you're the Living Wreck Gillan's talking [sign in to see URL].

Now seriously if anybody has an idea, I'd like to share my opinion with somebody who has a real point of view.

 I've always thought it was about groupies/one-night stands.

I'm quite sure it was autobiographical in that Ole Pumkinhead had a vision of himself in the future.

for your own sake
yeah it's a shame oh
oh you know you're a living wreck'

It's a anti-drug song, and that's according to the composers.

Now, is it possible for a forummember to post one question without the topic being flood by 50 years "TakeALookAtMyFacobooksiteToSeeHowGoodILook" old Gillanhaters????? Jeeezzz, grow up!
