    General CommentI think this song is all about not wanting to live up to society's expectations to have children. Not wanting children because eventually, you become their possessions.

    General CommentSeems to be about quite simply...having a fucking baby! Or rather...not wanting to. So he says being human is fucked (partly because of conflict like this), so why bring another one into the world? "Give it away" sure does sound like one of those A words doesn't it? Alternatively, it could mean giving himself away to a child.

    Here we have the four stages of life?:
    Vacation - prior to having a fucking baby
    procreation - having a fucking baby
    sterilization - after having a fucking baby, your identity becomes somewhat "sterile," i.e. after you begin to raise children, you change not for you but for them
    DISNEYLAND - the american dream ofcourse

    General Commentcha, about having babies. quite obvious and also can be heard when watching the documentary on the making of 'Alien'.

    the female choir singing 'god damn i need IT' talking about her needing sex, which then changes to 'god damn i need TO' need to concieve. this then changes again to 'god damn WE NEED TO'.

    this change to 'we' is used in another song of the album in 'we ride' in the bit where he says "I know I have my issues, and WE know YOU have YOURS!"

    also, the sample at the begining of 'Love?' says 'there's no external way to tell when a woman is ready to concieve'.

    General CommentI think an important aspect to note in this song is Dev's disdain for the average, middle-class, suburban family life.
