Even in the wreck house of a promise
Even in the gem blow of an awe fist
Everyone's an air flow through the blonde dirt
Everyone's an asshole in the wonder
When every commotion controls my wants
I lay down long and know other hurts

If it's not a problem
I want you to work me good
I want you in motion
I want you to go down full
I want you to yell
With your hair in my fingers
You know you make me so...

Misogynous
When I is us

Every time the bread breaks there's a hunger
Every second heart aches with a thunder
Heaven in the jet stream of a bong drain
Heaven in the meat dream of an all-way
When every emotion takes hold and haunts
I lay down hard and know other words

If it's not a problem
I want you to work me good
I want you in motion
I want you to go down full
I want you to yell
With your smell on my fingers
You know you make me so...

Misogynous
When I is us

You make me so
And now we know the sound
Of blue eyes rolled over
The smell of fine young hope
The feel and taste of always
So I can't yet shout and I can't roll over
And I'm breaking a sweat
It's time to wake up
Thank you, you've made me so...

And I is us

    General CommentThis song is about the closely-linked natures of sex and violence.

    As all members of the band are male, one would expect any comments made on sexual partners to be comments on females.

    The lines 'You make me so/Mysogynous/When I is us' imply that the violent desires brewing in the male lover are the fault of the female. The male lover seems caught in a mixture of an angel/demon dichotomic view of those he becomes 'us' with.

    I think it's too easy to only see this song through a feminist view as outlined above. In the first verse, the writer seems to view the whole World as an endangerment disguised within beauty - assholes in wonder. It is only within the encasement of another that he gains safety.

    It is also too easy to see this song as about the male getting sadomasochistic control over the female. The images of his 'blue eyes rolled over', his sweat, not being able to 'shout' or 'roll over' are those of a human being tortured.

    It's more about masochism than misogyny really. I Mother Earth would never sink to woman-hating.

    General CommentGood interpretation, except the end implies the singer has changed, "you've made me so..."
