"Bugs" as written by and Dave Davies....
All these...
I got bugs
I got bugs in my room
Bugs in my bed
Bugs in my ears
Their eggs in my head
Bugs in my pockets
Bugs in my shoes
Bugs in the way I feel about you
Bugs on my window
Trying to get in
They don't go nowhere
Waiting waiting...
Bugs on my ceiling
Crowded the floor
Standing sitting kneeling...
A few block the door
And now the question's:
Do I kill them?
Become their friend?
Do I eat them?
Raw or well done?
Do I trick them?
I don't think they're that dumb
Do I join them?
Looks like that's the one
I got bugs on my skin
Tickle my nausea
I let it happen again
They're always takin' over
I see they surround me, I see...
See them deciding my fate
Oh, that which was once...was once up to me...
Now it's too late
I got bugs in my room...one on one
That's when I had a chance
I'll just stop now
I'll become naked
And with the...I'll become one

    General CommentThe first time I heard this song I couldn't stop laughing, it's a funny song. The bugs kind of remind me of anxiety attacks though and I think a lot of people suffering from anxiety disorders would agree. The song could easily be about drugs as well or anything you want it to be about.

    General Commentits not about insects. its bugs as in listening devices. but its not about those either. basically, this song is a lot like corduroy or not for you or half the songs on vitalogy. as he gets more famous, his privacy is being invaded and its making him uncomfortable and confused. he doesnt know what to do about all the attention. in the end, everyone knows so much about him that its like hes naked.

    General CommentThis is just one of the many bizzare, strange songs on Vitalogy :P

    It sounds like it's about OCD/germophobia, of you've ever known someone who suffers from it.

    "Bugs in the way I feel about you"
    Many people who suffer from the condition refuse to shake hands etc.

    Just my 2 cents.

    General CommentUm...I though it was about Pearl Jam's record company trying to control the band or something. Probably wrong though.
