Met'em in a hotel. Met'em in a hotel beneath ground.
Tell me that he's missing. Tell me this one is for Lollipop Gestapo.
You were wild, where are you now? How...
You were wild, where are you now? How...

Give me more... give me more... give me? more...
Give me more... give me more... give me? more...
I, I have to learn to let you crash down.
I, I have to learn to let you crash...


Met'em in a hotel. Met'em in a hotel.
You say he's the biggest thing there'll be this year.
I guess that what I'm seeking,
I guess that what I'm seeking isn't here.
Met him in a hotel. Met him in a guess world,
Guessed anyone but you.
You were wild, where are you now? How... (Ha, how.)
You were wild, where are you now? How... (Ha, how.)


Give me more... give me more... give me? more...
Give me more... give me more... give me? can't you just,
Give me more... give me more... give me? more...
I, I have to learn to let you crash down.
I, I have to learn to let you crash...
Where... are the velvets, where...
Where... are the velvets when you're coming, coming down?
Where... are the velvets, where...
Where... are the velvets when you're coming, coming down?


You were wild where are you now? How...
You were wild where are you now? How...
You were wild... King Solomon's Mines Exit 75.
I'm still alive. I'm still alive... I'm still alive. I'm still alive. I'm still alive.

    General Comment"I think as you're getting married, all the loves, even 10-minute loves are popping up. Hotel was really like feeling like an agent - a spy - in that he was the greatest guy at one time and they were giving me time behind enemy lines. Even though she knows they can't be lovers because it's a whole other life, she just can't let him go."

    General CommentFor some reason I see this as about a relationship where the girl's completely submerged your personality in the other person, just lost herself entirely in him and in the relationship. He's a self-destructive loser, probably abusive, and he's pulling her down with him, but she's taking a look at herself. Wondering where she went to ("You were wild, where are you know?") and realizing that she has to leave, to let him self-destruct on his own. She comes to realize that "what [she's] seeking isn't here" and wishes for someone to either help him, or help her get out of there, but in the end she escapes on her own. She's driving down the highway away from him, feeling like she lost herself even though she just gained herself back, and she's just kind of marvelling: "I'm still alive, I'm still alive".

    General CommentI got the feeling this is about her rape experience. She escaped with her life ("I'm still alive") but she's still traumatized by either nightmares or flashbacks, therefore she needs the "velvet" when she's coming down.

    General Commenti think its about ending a relationship. Although it may be passionate (you were wild, where are you now; give me more, give me more) it was destructive or abusive (I have to learn to let you crash down; where are the velvets when you're comming down) and she just barley escaped with her life (im still alive... im still alive... im still alive...)
    i dunno.. just a thought ^^

    General CommentTori, in the past at least, would freely discuss her drug use. I imagine this song is a testament to that, the highs and lows, akin to an old amazing lover.

    General CommentTo me it seems like a one night stand gone wrong. She meets him in a Hotel, they sleep together, but he doesn't want to let her leave. He starts threatening her, and as she tries to escape he attacks her and she barely makes it out alive. "I'm still alive. I'm still alive. I'm still alive."

    General Comment"Met'em in a hotel beneath ground."

    I think this line is about a guy, or a group
    she once met in the underworld, who were involved
    with the occult, or a secret society? (The line might be "Met him" instead of "met'em"?)

    The line can also be about a nightmare,
    or an alien abduction experience she has had?
    Many abductees have talked about being in a
    hotel or military base underground where they have met a strange alien, or a military guy? I've had nightmares of such.


    "Tell me that he's missing.
    Tell me this one is for Lollipop Gestapo."

    The "Gestapo" was the official secret police of Nazi Germany. The army units within the Gestapo were taught many torture techniques. Many abductees have also talked about being tortured by devices in underground installments.

    "King Solomon's Mines"

    In refrence to the Hollow Earth? King Solomon's Mine
    is listed on the HOLLOW EARTH MAP.

    Also many people claim that Adolf had a fasicnation with the idea of the Hollow Earth and they decided to move into it. Really weird?
