I'm feeling down, touch me
What kind of God is this?
Gave me the hottest b*tch
Then took the life from her chest and left a pile of sh*t
Sloppy with a fork, so Chris gotta feed her
To numb to cum, sometimes she p*ss while I eat her
I tell her, keep her head up
Even though I gotta hold it up for her
and she seizure when she try and get up
I know I'm perking her
But can't stop what's hurting her
No sleep with her screaming all night, I'm thinking of murking her
Her parents paid for the coffin and left state
After signing the contract, do not resuscitate
Yellin' for mommy
I dip in the morphine to calm me
I'm known in town as the creep that's into zombies

I can't get that sound you make out of my head
I can't even figure out what's making it
Stare in her eyes to look past horror
Morphine tolerated, I'm out coppin' horse tranq for her
Like I won't have to go through hell again
Her skin is like saran wrap, barely hangin' from her skeleton
With each one of her ribs defined
My crib's designed
To keep the light out cause she can't lift the blinds
Drifting behind, I'll be outta friends soon
Nobody visits the guy that keeps the body in his bedroom
She's barely alive and taking life from me
With no appetite but the meningitis is still hungry
Wants to make love
But I had to substitute it with holding hands while we take drugs

She's cold as a corpse
And still holding The Source
Up in the air like: "One day the cover is yours"
Took the IV out her wrist
Tried to give me a kiss
Before I tasted her lips, she dislocated her hips
Started shaking
Couldn't feed her no medication
To scared to beat on her chest in fear It'd cave in
Death waved again and each time leaves her
In a coma, for a week, to wake up to more seizures
But this time ain't like the rest
I can see right through her chest
And see her heart ain't got no f**kin beats left
Then a voluptuous ghost falls from a host
Looking like she did in High School then fades when I get close

I'm feeling down, touch me

    General Commenti dont think shes in the hospital, its at his house because she is so done for they signed the contract to give up life support. i'm guessing cage wanted her last hours with him at his house cause he doesnt want to let go of her and he pumps her and himself full of drugs to cope with it all

    General CommentI think that no one is really paying attention to what he is saying, there is no drug use on her part, she is not in a hospital, the woman he loves is dying of meningitis and he's taking care of her in his own home.. thus the "nobody wants to visit the guy who keeps the body in his bedroom." I don't really think that there is an underlying meaning here, he's just talking about a fucked up situation. By the way this song is AMAZING live. Cage is a lyrical mastermind!

    General CommentThis song could be symoblism for something else or it can just describe a relationship with a woman who is cold to him, basically dead to the world. It's pretty dark and graphic.

    General CommentThis song is talking about his dying girlfriend, as you can tell she is in the hospital and he talks the whole time about how she is weak cant do shit and they need to help her do everything. Sick part was when he says "Sloppy with a fork, so Chris gotta feed her
    To numb to cum, sometimes she piss while I eat her."
    Thats what makes me love Cage, crazy ass style and fucked up storys.

    General Commenti think it can be interpreted many different ways...personally i just picture him talking about a gf who is a drug addict and what thats like going through it with her...

    "I dip in the morphine to calm me
    I'm known in town as the creep that's into zombies"-- (any time i hear zombie its refering to a H addict)

    "Stare in her eyes to look past horror
    Morphine tolerated, I'm out coppin' horse tranq for her"

    "Wants to make love
    But I had to substitute it with holding hands while we take drugs"

    General Commenti believe its just an extended metaphor for his girlfriend who is sort of detached in the relationship, and he can feel he's losing her. But he doesn't wanna let her go. but that's just my perspective..

    Lyric CorrectionThe correct lyrics of the sample are 'feeling bad as me' in place of 'im feeling down, touch me'

    i always thought it sounded wrong so i finally looked it up! the sample is from Built to Spill's track "i would hurt a fly" from the album Perfect from Now on
