Tell me a doll once came dead from above,
How'd you lose your way,
It stole a year from your best ones a waste to ground you.

When i get to your house,
Off my back i'll lose the weight,
When i get to your house,
Swear to god i won't trust the model or the make
I will trust you.
Alright, alright, alright, alright, alright, alright, alright, alright

Tie me up to the radiator
Trust the sweat, not the face it's on
Tie me up to the radiator
Don't put those lights on me
Don't put those lights on me

The same doll came to walk over us,
How'd you lose your way,
It broke mold got stretched like the weak ones,
Cracked and dried up slow.

When i get to your house,
Off my back i'll lose the weight,
When i get to your new fake god,
I wont trust the model or the make
I will trust you
Alright, alright, alright, alright, alright, alright, alright, alright

Tie me up to the radiator
Trust the sweat, not the face it's on
Tie me up to the radiator
Don't put those lights on me
Don't put those lights on me

Tie me up to the radiator
Tie me up to the radiator
Tie me up to the radiator
Tie me up, tie me up

Our vanity's a sickness,
There's a world outside prescribed,
And I won't live in it.

    General CommentThis song is probably the weakest lyrically on the album. And probably one of the strongest musically.

    Shame, that.

    Oh, and it's definately radiator. I copied it directly from the album notes.

    General CommentWhat.. Bad lyrically? You're kidding me right? This song is weakest on the album lyrically.. but even then it's pretty much better than 90% of the other shit out there.

    But seeing as there's no actual stabs at the meaning of the song in all 7 comments on a site called SongMeaning.net, *I'LL* actually stay on topic. Official word from Trevor Reilly:

    "Me vs. Morrissey is about two things 1) a friend who was taken from us by a girl and changed, or that's how I perceived the situation in the song anyway and 2) starting a new relationship with a wonderful woman. Two sides to a story basically. Hope that doesn't sound too lame."

    General CommentI have a love hate relationship with this band .. one of the best hard-rock albums 'musically' which I have heard in a while .. but their lyrics are just terrible.
