I really want you to sigh,
never in tune just sigh,
I really want you to sigh,
never in tune just sigh.
just tonight I would, I would lay here for you
just tonight I would, I would sink here for you
just tonight I would, I would slum here for you
just tonight I would die.
I really want you to sigh,
never in tune just sigh,
I really want you to sigh,
never in tune just sigh.
where am I, in the hallway small,
theres a red light, and a black sore.
away I say, away I say, away I say, away.
you'll follow me till the end, till the end,
you'll follow me till the end, till the end,
you'll swallow me till there's nothing left.
I really want you to sigh,
never in tune just sigh,
I really want you to sigh,
never in tune just sigh.

    General CommentThis is my favorite distillers song.
    Last weekend I was on Hultsfredsfestivalen in Sweden, and distillers played there and it was just so good. Brody signed my tummie!

    General CommentThis song is so beautiful. It seems to be about how her obsession with someone is so extreme, she would stoop to any low - "laying, sinking, slumming, dying" - just to be with this person that night. It's totally obsessive and self-destructive.

    I also love the "where am, am I? in the hallway small" etc part. Very reminiscient of a drinking/drug binge.

    General CommentI always thought that this song was about the whole transfer from Tim Armstrong to Josh Homme. In the whole album, she mentions the color red a couple times. ("Scarlet letter on my chest", "There's a red light")
