You said "I'll build you a bed of cactus where you could sleep when the night is too sharp." I said "I'll cover you with wax and light your hair like a wick when the night is too cold." You don't think of me as often as I'd like you to, but when you do it's of me looking for you on the ship. The plane I'm waiting on has your face printed on the wings, when it crashes I'll eat the paint off. I'm going to spank your ass so hard you'll hate the wig master, but I'll put two pillows on your dining room chair. You're like a parrot, something that belongs to me and not to you. Loneliness isn't being alone, it's when someone loves you and you don't have it in you to love them back. Look at my hair, it's a dirty little mop crying for you to send it away. All a guy needs is a chance to pull off my clothes and snicker, try harder. If you mail me a toy I'll use it but that's the most I have to offer. "Do you want to see my panties?" is the last thing I'll ever say to you. "I want to finger every teenager I sea" is the last thing you'll say to me. Don't make fun of my night out.

    General CommentI trust Jamie. I think all of his songs make sense, it's not a way to make a quick buck, but instead a way to make people think harder about what a song means. He's one of the few musicians who is trying to move music further along instead of dwelling in the past. Without Xiu Xiu i'm afraid we would be relying on those Joe-schmo, flavor of the week 'indie rock' bands you find on blog sites to deliver the creativeness we need to help build the future of music and song structure.

    General CommentI can hardly listen to this song anymore, because when I do my body just havocs. it's incredibly beautiful, but in the end I just feel disgusted. which is why xiu xiu is so interesting for me. they're the only ones who make not only my mind, but my body react.
    for me, the essence comes from extreme apathy towards others.

    "Loneliness isn't being alone, it's when someone loves you and you don't have it in you to love them back."

    a using of others, and the feeling of not caring for any of them. that you feel that people feel something for you. but inside of yourself, there is no need to return any kind of emotion.

    General CommentI added this song, and I tried my best. The words I'm not sure of are:

    - when it crashes I'll "lick" the paint off.
    - Look at my hair, it's a dirty little "mock"
    - pull off my clothes and "snicker"

    And who knows what it means, but damn it's a cool song.

    General Commentalso, the song is not really meant to be in paragraphs. its just prose, line after line.

    General Commentdid you ever think that maybe you're NOT the guy who wrote it, so regardless of the fact that you think he wrote it for money, that maybe deep down it has some sort of meaning and there's never really any way for any of you pretentious jackasses to know? other than the fact that he made a song that you retards just cant quite come to terms with because you "dont get it". just because it's not something you like or think is obscure or what-the-fuck-ever, doesnt mean that the reason the person who wrote it, is just trying to make an extra buck. grow the hell up.
