"Scream" as written by Joey Waronker, Oliver Goldstein, Justin Meldal-johnsen, Tim Anderson and Alex Ebert....
Big blue in a gasfield, you caught me lying
Pathetic religion of sex and crying
I nailed the door shut to leave you blind
I nailed the door shut for peace of mind

You were the best love I ever had
You hit me high, you hit me low
Time doesn't slow down for those who dream
I wake only to hear this scream

Hot and cold in the goldmine, the diamond legs
After she hit me off, I just had to beg
I nailed the door shut to leave you blind
I nailed the door shut for peace of mind

You were the best love I ever had
You hit me high, you hit me low
Time doesn't slow down for those who dream
I wake only to hear this scream

You were the best love I ever had
You hit me high, you hit me low
Time doesn't slow down for those who dream
I wake only to hear this scream

You were the best love I ever had
You hit me high, you hit me low
Time doesn't slow down for those who dream
I wake only to hear this scream

Love is the only incident
An infatuation
Is this sweet manipulation?
Well, I was frightened myself
What is love?
It's a fine inclination
A lovely retardation
What is life but a reality vacation?
Indulging operation
What is love?
The worthiest damnation
Sweet temptation
What is love?

    General CommentI hear "you were the first love I ever had" the first time that line is said, and then "best love" the second time. But maybe I'm just relating it to myself... it's quite poignant to me, and I'm sure a lot of others, for just that reason.

    And it is completely like their other songs: confusion over love.

    General CommentYeah, I agree it's pretty cool.
    As for the meaning of it, I think it might be he really loves a girl but he cheated on her?
    And 'You hit me high, you hit me low' eh, I haven't actually thought of it yet. It could be something icky, but it could also mean that she was for him during good and bad. Oor that she made him feel good ('You hit me high') but kept him in line ('You hit me low')
    Mmm...
