I was 19, and dead from the neck up.
She was a Christian rock ingenue.
Sentimental as a cat's grave
Her fucking body broke my eyes
And she said, I'm gonna love the hell out of you.

Brandy wine rained on an android cross
Even the swans were bankrupt and blue
I'd been a liar my whole life
She said, I wanna be your wife
And she said, I'm gonna love the hell out of you.

In a lonely swedish bookstore, banging a librarian
The sound of rain and lightning was my cue
I fixed the Preakness in the rain
I had a weakness for cocaine
And she said

I learned double entry bookkeeping when I was 12 years old
I learned there's no imagination in the blues
They registered my name with the Catholic hall of fame
And she said, I'm gonna love the hell out of you.

    General CommentI don't quite know how to put it, but the song to me represents the two sides of love - at once feeling like you're being cuddled, and then feeling like being punched repeatedly. There seems to be a dual-meaning throughout the song whether this girl is the pious religious saviour who'll forget past errs to be with him, or on the other hand she could be quite a cold and blunt religioso who is turned on by such a sinful man. "Sentimental as a cat's grave" sums it up for me - it could be thought of as touching memorial, but really: what kind of a positive simile is a "cat's grave"?
