Wounded, you can take me there
I was wounded, you can take me there
It was a crime that I was left
But will you go on without me?
Think I'll just walk myself to sleep

Cause I ain't working for your father
But I might as well be
I ain't lookin' for confusion
But it tends to follow me
You can come into my house, she said
If you do it quietly
But I said
There ain't no chance at that

Cause I am listenin' to what you got
Put up your hands if you want me to stop
And I turn around, but I think you're crazy
If you think this happens a lot
Oh, do you like this?
Do you need someone to cover you
Just to show you what you missed

Wounded, and I will go if you go first
But I, ain't gonna wait around
Tell me how much is your dime worth
We got, ten minutes to get there
We got, ten minutes to go
Throw this one in for the money
Cause the next one's for the next show

I ain't working for your father
But I might as well be
I ain't lookin' for confusion
But it tends to follow me
You can come into my house, she said
If you do it quietly
But I said
There ain't no chance at that

Cause I am listenin' to what you got
Put up your hands if you want me to stop
And I turn around, but I think you're crazy
If you think this happens a lot
Oh, do you like this?
Do you need someone to cover you
Just to show you what you missed

So hey
Where you going?
Do you need somebody, somewhere
To help you get on by?
Cause I think, you know who I am
I'm gonna make this, as fast as I can
Some people call me the pusher man
I promise it won't take long no no no no
Just close your eyes
And get in the van

Cause I am listenin' to what you got
Put up your hands if you want me to stop
And I turn around, but I think you're crazy
If you think this happens a lot
Oh, do you like this?
Do you need someone to cover you
Just to show you want you missed

Cause I am listenin' to what you got
Put up your hands if you want me to stop
And I turn around, but I think you're crazy
If you think this happens a lot
Oh, do you like this?
Do you need someone to cover you
Just to show you want you missed

    General CommentAlright, you guys are getting that it's about sex, but your'e overlooking the most crucial part:
    "And I turn around, but I think you're crazy
    If you think this happens a lot
    Oh, do you like this? (sung in high pitch, as if by a woman)
    Do you need someone to COVER YOU
    JUST TO SHOW YOU WHAT YOU MISSED"

    He's a confused man, who meats a controlling woman, and she bangs him in the ass with a strap on. simple as that.

    General Commenti think its about some guy raping somebody somehow. 'i promise this wont take long' 'just close your eyes and get in the bed'. i dunno, that sorta gets shot down by '... if you want me to stop'. oh well.

    General Commentwell this is a loooong shot but when he says "and i turn around but i think you're crazy if you think this happens a lot" it kinda sounds like guy on guy or something weird i dont understand this part??

    General Commenti think this song is about sex. but its more about how she has control and he thinks shes missing out on some things. just how hell stop at her command and how hell turn around if she gets shy....and how with this shes missing out and he wants to show her what shes missed

    General CommentOk, to me, this song’s impression on me is that it is about a person who has lost his self-esteem (and possibly his mind) and “needs” this other person’s love, more specifically, a person’s *physical* love, in order to make him stable again. In a way, it sounds like something has gone wrong in his life and that he's given up on trying to find what he can do right. Maybe he's trying to show her that life sucks, so they might as well enjoy what they can. So, he’s trying to convince her that they need each other for the security. It’s kinda like he’s arguing with her. But you can’t hear her side of the conversation
    For example:
    Wounded, you can take me there
    [I was hurt but you can help me]

    I ain't lookin' for confusion
    But it tends to follow me
    [just re-enforcing what I was saying about this person being a little, ahem, “lost” in life]

    You can come into my house, she said
    [well, she invited him in. maybe not necessarily her "house" but her "world"]

    If you do it quietly
    [but didn’t want him to try anything funny…]

    But I said
    There ain't no chance at that
    [but he’s not going to promise that he won’t]

    Put up your hands if you want me to stop
    [that’s… kinda straightforward…]

    And I turn around, but I think you're crazy if you think this happens a lot
    [that just gives me the impression that after he’s done with her, he’ll leave her there but not want her to think that he’s a bad person]

    Oh, do you like this?
    [I’m not going to go into detail on this…]

    Do you need someone to cover you, Just to show you what you missed
    [like how I need you to cover me and show me what I’ve missed]

    [then, for a while I really just don’t understand it]

    So hey
    Where you going?
    [sounds like she's walking away from him and his offers but he doesn't understand]

    Do you need somebody, somewhere
    To help you get on by?
    [I guess he's kinda taunting her. Trying to convince her that she doesn't need the rest of the world. That he'd be there for her.]

    Cause I think, you know who I am
    [saying that he believes that she could understand him]

    I'm gonna make this, as fast as I can
    Some people call me the pusher man
    I promise it won't take long no no no no
    [ still not going to go into details]

    Just close your eyes and get in the van
    [maybe he’s taking her off the street?]

    well, I know that was a pretty crappy interpretation, but that was my first impression of the lyrics. The music really does bring this whole song together. One of my fav's.

    General CommentI think this song is about sex. Every word is so poetic and that is why it is so fun to analyze. Dispatch is an amazing band that writes incredible music. It isn't so much about what the song is exactly about, but more about how you intrepret it. That's what makes it so awesome to listen to.
