"Teaspoon" as written by and John Roderick....
I know I wasn't made to play on a team
You weighed your suitcase down but it still wouldn't sink
I know that crime doesn't pay
But I don't know any other way

the way that she smiles me down
She claims to be clowning
I finally long for someone
Teaspoon

two can just bleed into one
But only one does the bleeding
She calls me the alphabet gun
Teaspoon

I know I wasn't made to play on a team
You weighed your suitcase down but it still wouldn't sink
I know that crime doesn't pay
But I don't know any other way

She orders the pilot to land
She just wants to hold the man
Well I am her pilot today
Teaspoon

    General CommentI think this song is about using heroin. It's written from the point of view of the heroin though. Interesting take on it... Very catchy too.

    General CommentHoly crap, I agree with the heroin comment. Not 100% sure, the second verse doesn't definitely fit that analysis, but most of the song does.

    Then again, I think he just make a lot of really personal metaphors that most people won't get -- like in "Seven."
