"The Negative Sex" as written by and Chris Corner....
They know attention to obedience
The kids and wishes fix and forgotten for my self defence
We all want to fuck ourselves and rape the world
So the odds of the cops will prevail
And vanity, not bored, not love

Oh no, they can't leave it alone
Oh no, we can't leave it alone

Because a negative sex was born into a bloodline
The negative sex is powerful in our time

Show a man from examp? the alternative
It's all ammunition for the gender bend and the bedroom twist
They say that the fashion's just not feminist
But the sweet and the turn-on sits in the laps of the girls with the balls and the hits

Oh no, they can't leave it alone
Oh no, we can't leave it alone

Because the negative sex was born into a bloodline
The negative sex is powerful in our time
The negative sex was born into a bloodline
The negative sex is powerful in our time

Sex for a lifetime
Sex for a lifetime
Sex for a lifetime

    General Commentto me this song is about, um, the incredible negative way that females are portrayed in our society. portrayed as nothing more than sex objects. how that viewpoint negatively impacts all of us. how when a woman "acts like a man" so to speak, loads of feminists will get up in arms about it because they say that women should not "act like a man" but it's indeed empowering to act like that because the woman is not promoting her sexuality in a negative light, whereas the feminist movement to promote women as valid sexual beings has spun out of control in recent years.

    My Interpretationthis song is clearly about male dominance and sexual persuasion as tolerated in standing society. it is an acknowledgment of the double standard for fidelity between the sexes and cop out.the double standard is acknowledged, given a negative sentence, and then clearly taken advantage of by reinforcement.
    here:
    "But the sweet and the turn-on sits in the laps of the girls with the balls and the hits....
    ...Oh no, they can't leave it alone"

    General CommentIt sounds like he's saying "Pay no attention" at the beginning, not "they know attention". I could be wrong, but that's what it sounds like.

    General CommentAnd I also think that the chorus is wrong. I think it's supposed to be, "The negative sex was born into a bloodline, the negative sex is ours for a lifetime." Or atleast that's what I hear.

    General CommentHA HA. sorry, random laughing there. Errm...'What does this song mean to you?'. errrr... Dunno but I do know that the chorus is wrong.
    It's "Because the negative sex was born into the bloodline
    The negative sex is power for a lifetime".

    And Smuffy I think you're right. It is "Pay no attention" at the start

    General CommentOh I really love this song to death. Had it on repeat for far too long. Also it is 'Pay no attention' and 'Because the negative sex was born into the bloodline
    The negative sex is power for a lifetime' im pretty sure.

    It is such an addictive song. Why isn't IAMX more popular. Such a shame.

    General Commentfemales and males becoming one and the same. A time when both sexes are the same. When sexuality isn't a matter. Fashion to sway mankind.

    just something i saw in this.

    General Commentactually it's "they know ascension to obedience"
    and also i think it's "Their kicks and wishes fix and forgotten for my self defence"
