"Flames Go Higher" as written by Jessie Everett Hughes and Josh Homme....
I'm gon' set my soul on fire.
My heart beats low while the flames go higher.
Strike the match and then the truth is told.
I'm gon' set my soul on fire.
The Devil made me a woman!...
I ain't no liar.
Her eyes burn black like the lake of fire.
She struck the match and then I sold my soul...
For the black haired girl from the lake of fire.
My heart beats low while the flames go higher.
Strike the match and then the truth is told.
I just set my soul on fire.

    General CommentHe sold his soul to be with a perfect, evil woman who the devil created just for him. Very straight forward, very rock.

    General CommentI guess thats whats good about this band also, like QOTSA there songs can mean anything to the listeners and they mean something indefinitely to the singer...

    I agree with both of you above, but I love it being about a hemaphrodite....
