"We Hunger" as written by Robert James Smith, Steven Severin, Budgie, and Sioux,....
A ravenous greed for a brood to feed
A lusting spawn on a weekend fawn
Do you hunger for this, hunger for this?

Sucking leaches feel the need
Sucking dry unsated stomach pops
Sharpened knives, oh, with flying sparks
Sagging bodies with stretch marks

And your belly aches
Do you hunger for this, hunger for this?
Hunger for this, bled white with avarice

As the rust creeps
Corrosion seeps a rotting seed
Eat me, oh, feed me
With your belching foul breath

Your destructive kiss, death
Do you hunger for this, hunger for this?
Hunger for this, just a taste of a sweet kiss

Shanghaied on a locust flight
And the thirst from a vampire bite
Fills the emptiness inside
Consuming everything green eyed
We hunger, we hunger

We are hunger for this
Hunger for this
Hunger for this
The bliss of a sweet kiss

Hunger for this
(Hunger for this)
Hunger for this
(Hunger for this)
We hunger, we hunger

We're hunger for this
(Hunger for this)
Hunger for this
(Hunger for this)
We hunger

    General CommentI always supposed this was about pregnancy. The first verse really has some grotesque imagery that you could link to the condition 'sagging bodies with stretch marks'. That Siouxsie is asking 'Do you really want something like this?'

    She never had children nor has she mentioned anything about it (why should she?) but maybe she's tokophobic.

    I'm possibly reading too deep into this :D

    Song MeaningI also think this is most likely about pregnancy and lust. She asks, do you hunger for this, in relation to the strech-marks, and uses the metaphor of the baby inside being like a parasite.

    However, she also seems to be asking if we hunger for "The bliss of a sweet kiss."

    The song seems to be questioning perhaps, the motives behind sex and if it is really all about children or about lust. Kind of like a cautionary tale for young people getting pregnant.

    General CommentSIOUXSIE: "I'd just bought a video machine, that was three years ago, and everybody I knew seemed to be, like, in a video nasty club. I mean, there was a lot of unreality, waking up to video images. A song like 'We Hunger' arose out of that environment. I wasn't really living with any subtlety then." Source: NME 28/09/85.
