I turned you over and I found the best way to fit you in
I'm tired of crying and despising and everything that I see
I tried to meet you but it's always the same
No use good for nothing man you should be ashamed

Did you hear what Sylvia said?
Did you hear what Sylvia said?

I couldn't help it I turned around
The deed was done now I can't find my way out
No point resisting when the pull is so strong
Just keep so quiet cause your silence speaks for everyone

If you walk, if you walk anyway
With one guy for one girl
Shhhhh

You say you hate me I know it's true
I found new ways to take the piss out of you
For no good reason, for no good cause
I had to leave you, had to leave you where I left the car

If you walk, if you walk anyway
With one guy for one girl
Shhhhh

There is a girl ugly as me
Wait til you see her, you will not believe
Tied her in ribbons, left her for hours
Sylvia please go take a shower

Life is a lesson, I am the teacher
You are the student so pleased to meet you
What have you got? An apple for me?
Put it in your mouth and roast a piggy

You are shit
Cos you eat shit
And you are what you eat
Yeah you are what you eat

ALL! HAIL! QUEEN OF THE GUILTY!
ALL! HAIL! QUEEN OF THE GUILTY! 1

    My InterpretationI think that this is a song about rejection. The man is absolutely sick of being rejected by Sylvia and probably by people in general and he is taking revenge on her.

    In this verse, he mentions that he has tried to get with Sylvia and he says he's tired of despising everything that he sees. This could be his own self as well as perhaps that Sylvia has become a target of his hate because he couldn't have her.

    [i]I couldn't help it I turned around
    The deed was done now I can't find my way out
    No point resisting when the pull is so strong
    Just keep so quiet cause your silence speaks for everyone

    I'm thinking that perhaps he is talking about kidnapping and raping her. He couldn't resist having his way with her. He mentions the deed being done and there being no way out. This could be of his miserable life or he's saying that he's raped Sylvia and that's it.

    The way he's mentioned about her being left where he left the car again suggests that he has kidnapped her. The "shhh" i perhaps him telling his desperate victim to be quiet.

    Here he is projecting his hatred onto Sylvia and is trying to make her feel as low and bad as her rejection has made him feel. This continues in the next two verses.

    [i]ALL! HAIL! QUEEN OF THE GUILTY![/i]
    Here he's pinning the blame firmly on Sylvia. I can't help but think he's also trying to make out that perhaps had she not rejected him, Sylvia would not have to be punished for it.

    I interpret this song as being a song about a very unstable man sick of rejection who finally snaps over his object of obsession.
