Let's make evil
Let's make good
I'd do anything I could
Just to get you in my dirt wood
Go down on you
Seventeen and thirty-one
I am just my mother's son
Brown eyes and a silver tongue
All the mothers come undone
At the sight of me

CHORUS:
The water's falling clear
Interiors decieve i fear
I think I'll kiss my shame away
My prudence is not dear
Inside out and feeling weird
I think I'll kiss my shame away

Let's get soft
Let's get hard
Let's get off in my backyard
Where the desert wind
Will wash our skin
A lighter red
Let's make peace
Let's make war
Let's break into heaven for
A dance with heaven's devils or
Is that more than you can store
Inside your head


Chorus

I don't want to live alone
Get on my throne
Slay my shame
Slay my shame
Let's get gentle
Let's get pissed
Get your knickers in a twist
Cause the angel and the devil kiss
They fell in love
Some seem dirty
Some say clean
Something from a madman's dream
Am I really what I seem?
Rising to my head like cream
It feels so strange

Chorus

Slay my shame
Slay my shame
I don't want to live alone
Get on my throne
Slay my shame
Slay my shame

    General CommentI love this song. My fave line is "Let's get gentle
    Let's get pissed
    Get your knickers in a twist
    Cause the angel and the devil kiss
    They fell in looooove"
    But anyways. Anthony was dating a girl that was still in high school when this song was made. So she was 17 and he was 31 at the time.(Rolling Stone Mag April 1994 issue... the one with Anthony on the cover explains more) So this song must have been written in 1993 sometime. It's about their relationship. She's the angel and he's the devil. This line stands out in how Anthony was feeling "Some seem dirty
    Some say clean
    Something from a madman's dream
    Am I really what I seem?
    Rising to my head like cream
    It feels so strange." Seems to me that he's confused. And on drugs again, which he was before he quit for good.

    General Commenti have never heard it but read the lyrics lots. the way its used its like holding back on something but wanting to jump right into it at the same time.

    General Commenti absolutely love this song!

    i think it's about a girl he met once and the age difference was quite big (17 and 31). it sounds like he is pretty desperate for her but at the same time it sounds as if he's very confused about his feelings.

    the verse always starts with a contradiction - evil/good, peace/war etc., meaning that no matter what they did, they couldn't go wrong but it could also mean that he's torn between two contradictin emotions or choices .

    he sings "let's breake into heaven for a dance with heaven's devils or is that more than you can store inside your head?", so he isn't sure how far she will go.

    well, thats just my 2 cents

    love,
    Anna

    General CommentTo me it's about getting messed up and getting laid, but it's more than that. The contradictions of right and wrong are both chemical and emotional. It's a nice song about the darker side of love, and all while your mind is playing tricks on you.
