I did something bad
I got in a fight
about drugs
kicked him in the neck

I am helsabot
I am all you're not
but you wish you were

I am working hard
don't you laugh at me
I am helsabot
alcohol fueled robot

I take off my clothes
then I say to joe
"do your pants ever just fall off?"
a menage-et-trois' fine

I am helsabot
I am all you're not
but you wish you were

I am working hard
don't you laugh at me
I am helsabot
alcohol fueled robot

    General CommentBasically, it's about the entropic breakdown of an addiction, whether that be drugs [first verse], alchohol [second verse] or sex [third verse].

    General CommentThis is hands down, my favorite Xiu Xiu song ever written. It works for me on so many levels...I love the part where he asks if "joe's" pants ever fall off. It is such a beautiful way to describe desire. And the menage-et-trois part to me is like this complete surrender for another person, like he'll do whatever they want, even if it's subversive and dirty.

    I could probably talk about this song for hours, but I love all versions of the song because to me, the lyrics are so important Jamie could just sit there and read them and I'd enjoy it.
