    General CommentBefore I knew of the Eraserhead connection, I always thought the song was the ultimate fuck-you-but-I-still-love-you song.

    It's like the speaker wants to reassure himself and his partner that he'll be just effin fine without her, but it's clear as the song continues that he is really not fine, and will never be okay. He wants to make peace with the situation, but he can't, and that is very bitter to him.

    The turn at the middle, when he changes, "You got your good thing, and I got mine" to "You got your good thing, and YOU got mine," is genius. The wistful tune and screaming (frustration/agony) really puts across a powerful message of a person who cannot let go as much as they want to.

    General Commentwooooooooooo, pixies rule......... from the film Eraserhead, by david lynch......... everyone should watch it, and then you can be just like the pixies... hahahalalala
    erm, according to the credits of the film a guy called peter ivers originally wrote the lyrics so Full credit to him! pixies changed the music though. to me this song is about, love and hope and driffting away into maddness or death which ever comes first.

    General CommentThis song is about suicide.
    In the film, whenever Jack looks at the radiator it is supposed to symbolize Jack thinking about suicide. So the lady in the radiator is an angel telling him that once he gets to heaven everything will be ok and all will be forgiven (the worms/umbilical cords represent sin; specifically his sin of premarital sex).

    General CommentI don't think that very many things in my life will compare to how I felt when the Pixies opened their set with this on the 24th.

    General CommentAmazing cover. Relatively obscure aswell.

    He goes amazingly psychotic during some live versions of it.

    General Commenti love this movie, and this song. i didn't hear the whole pixies output til i got emusic and was suprised they did it. Not for any reason mind.

    BTW it does make a lot of sense, a couple have premarital sex and she gives birth to an alien premature baby ('oh you are sick') there is a tape machine at the start- they have 'eraser heads' too.

    Eraserhead reminds me of Current93/Nurse with wound.
