"Hellbound" as written by and Kim Deal....
It lives in folds of red and steamy air
It lives in misery

Hellbound
Hellbound
Hellbound
Hellbound
Hellbound
Hellbound

Oh, oh we're falling
Falling down
Down

It lives, despite the knives internal
It lives marry me

Hellbound

Oh, we're falling
Falling down
Down

It lives in misery

Hellbound

    General CommentMy friend Kevin always said bad things about Kelly Deal. He referred to her in such a derogatory way; he called her a junkwhore, basically. I thought that was unfair. I love Kim and Kelly both, I think it's unfair of the world to be so hard on Kelly. She made Kim great and Kim made the Pixies great. I love Frank Black and all but he's kind of a whiny little baby about it all, don't you think? The Deals, they know the deal. The Black is in the black and he's not half as Frank as he claims. I liked him better as Francis. The way he is, he's Hellbound. He could learn a lot from that Kelly Deal, that junkwhore. She knows where to find the good shit and Frank is just as hooked as the rest of us.

    Song MeaningGod, you guys are freaks. It's about sex from a woman's POV.

    "It lives in folds of red and steamy air" is about as precise a description of the female pudenda as you'll ever find.

    "It lives in misery/Hellbound" Hellbound means she's tied (bound) to torment (hell) because she is a sexual being. The pudenda here is identified with both libido and menstruation: thus, her sex life (good and bad), her lack of one (frustration), masturbation, and menstruation.

    "Oh, oh we're falling/Falling down/Down" A nice description of orgasm, but also ties, neatly, into the suffering of the "hellbound" line (isn't Hell the place below?): thus she is still pleasured *and* pained by her sexuality.

    "It lives/despite the knives internal/It lives/marry me" You could interpret "knives internal" as an abortion, but I think it refers both to the male organ and, again, to the pain of menstruation. In spite of privation and pain, "it lives": that is, her desire. Which is why the final lyric (aside from repeated lines) is "marry me."
