you would make the prettiest of brides
(oh baby i got you workin from the nine to five)
you would make the prettiest rape victim
(oh baby i got you workin from the nine to five)
goddamn i hope i overdose
your mouth is open and better suits a bottle opener than to talk my pathetic fucking ears off
i'd jab an ice pick in my eardrums if i could someday regain my hearing
i envision (more more more) snapping your neck
(more more more)
tilt back your head and fucking take it
milligram count: you've gone too far
diagnosis: finally gone

    My InterpretationI always assumed the "Tilt back your head..." line was a reference to both the rape and the overdose: he's forcing himself down her throat/her to swallow with the same intensity that he forces himself to swallow his poison-of-choice.

    It occurs to me now that the rape/murder is probably a fantasy, while the overdose isn't, thus his anguish, "Oh, shit! Fuck!"
    (WanganGC8's "O.S.F." speculations seem completely viable too...)

    Also, the title doesn't necessarily have anything to do with the lyrics and is quite possibly random and conjured up at the last second.

    General CommentWhat about the breakdown towards the end? The lyrics end with "OH! SHIT! FUCK!" repeating.

    God, God Goddamn.

    Those are some harsh words, I think that we can all agree that whoever this song is about, obviously a women that he can't stand at all.

    General CommentIt's about an overdose.
    He can't stand her, and she still keeps running her mouth.
    He wants her to be taken care of.
    :]
