"You're So Vague" as written by and Josh/oliveri Homme....
Clear-eyed girl
In a crooked way
All the crooked walkin
To avoid and evade
Hair like maple, skin like cream
Bet they say I love you
When you strip them thin
Baby, youÂ?re so vague
That you probably think this song ainÂ?t about you
Green eyed boys
Lick the razor blade
Girl I think I love you
And the mess you made
Setting you up
It donÂ?t get you down
When you flash your fangs
You own this town
Baby, youÂ?re so vague
That you probably think this song ainÂ?t about you

    General CommentSigned up just to comment on this song since it's so amazing.

    Alright, the way I see it, he's talking about one of the hot popular girls. Yeah you know the ones, they're gorgeous, but they're complete bitches. I think that's where "Clear-eyed girl, In a crooked way" comes in. She's beautiful, but in a crooked way, which probably means she just has appearance going for her. And he pretty much goes on saying he loves her, but she doesn't know it because she's completely oblivious about this guy, "That you probably think this song ain't about you". That's my two cents.

    Oh, and I think after the line "When you flash your fangs", he adds a "fuck" after.
