"Writhe" as written by and Josh Homme....
Everyone seems to be servin' for satan
Guess I will too
What a joke, you make me laugh
'Till I turn blue

Any tale goes out to there
What a manly lookin' crew
I don't think I'll tease my hair
I'd rather sit here teasing you

Cast your eyes, my snakes down on the floor
Out you go and in come one and hundred more

I seem to lost my cowboy boots
With green fringe runnin' down the side
My soul machine has made me green
'Cause my jeans didn't turn out tight

And all these ruins I turn for you
Ya keep my livin' alive
Your smile overweighs the miles
And your kiss makes it worth the ride

Cast your eyes, my snakes down on the floor
Out you go and in come one and hundred more

    General CommentHey, amazing tune.

    BUT, second verse should be:

    Everyone's hair is out to there
    What a manly looking crew
    I don't think I'll tease my hair
    I'd rather sit here teasing you

    Song MeaningIt's about being a male prostitute in love with a girl.

    "Out you go and in come one hundred more." -Hinting at the fact that he's a male prostitute.

    "I seem to have lost my cowboy boots
    with green fringe running down the side." -I guess they're saying that these (rather flamboyant) boots symbolize the "norm" for prostitutes, and he's lost his path of the norm by falling in love with the girl.

    "Your smile overweighs the miles and your kiss makes it worth the ride." -He's saying she stands out compared to all the women (or people) he's been with, and being with all those people makes it clear to him that he's in love with her.

    Bada bing bada boom.

    General CommentPretty sure that this song is about fake ass bands. If memory serves Blues From The Red Sun came out in '92 when hair bands were dying out. So most of this song is making fun of hair bands, with the exception of the first verse which is addressing "satanic" bands. The chorus is about screwing groupies. The last verse might be about coming home to your actual woman who matters.
