"Midnight Creeper" as written by Jessie Everett Hughes and Josh Homme....
Well I come in through your window
I see your family there
Yes I'm the midnight creeper
When I go creepin y'all better beware
Well Your child is gently sleeping
Pleasant dreams are in his head
That wife of yours is a sweet young thing
When I leave your wife'll be dead
Well my steel is sharp and silent
The devil guides my hand
Well I just love to slit them throats
And creep all around this land

    General CommentUm a song about a guy sneaking into someone's house in the dead of night and killing the family with a knife, and "the devil guides my hand." Is there anything more fucking awsome than a song about that?

    General CommentFrom an interview:

    As for the accuracy of Josh's describing Jesse as a gun-totin', porn-lovin', meth-huffin' son of a bitch? "Yes, I am very pro-gun," says Jesse. "As the saying goes, 'God made men and women, and Sam Colt made them equal.'" According to Jesse, the video for "Midnight Creeper" – in which he fantasizes about extracting revenge on his ex-wife – has already been banned by MTV.

    General Commentjesse's an evil genius. I read somewhere that he got the nickname "the devil" from josh homme in high school.. jesse used to get picked on, but he'd always get revenge on people in weird ways, liek playing mind games with them or something, I dunno. But anway, once, Josh was like... "you're the fuckin devil, man".. cos he's like... crazy and a little bit twisted :)
    The first time I heard this was live... Jesse was so lovely and excitable and just jumping round on stage all night being awesome, and then suddenly he came out with this, and I was like... wtf?! Arggh!
