"Solo Flights" as written by Jessie Everett Hughes and Josh Homme....
I don't need a reason baby
I don't have to worry
I keep a tight grip on myself
I ain't in no kind of hurry

You don't get it, no
You don't get it, no

You don't get it, no
You don't get it, no

So tired of fooling around
In just a one way conversation
What the stitch's
I scratch what itches
Bravo self-gratification

Nobody does me like I do
I'm just a one man operation
Beg me to show you the ropes
Well I can't get no vacuumication

You don't get it, no
You don't get it, no
You don't get to love me!

You don't get it, no
You don't get it, no

You don't get it, no
You don't get it, no

You don't get it
You don't get it
No one gets to love me!

You don't get it, no
'Cause I'll get it on

No one's gonna hold my hand
It's got a full-time occupation
I close my eyes and picture you
And cut out all the aggrivation

You don't get it, no
You don't get it, no

You don't get it, no
You don't get it, no

You don't get it
You don't get it
No one gets to love me!

You don't get it, no
'Cause I'll get home

    General CommentI actually think it's about feeling the empty and shallowness of sleeping around with others.Feeling as though one can never maintain a true emotional connection because of how easy it is for them to use others. This person feels enraged or sad because of this, but they can't stop sleeping around.

    "You don't get it
    You don't get it
    No one gets to love me!"

    Refers to the last line i said.

    "Nobody does me like I do
    I'm just a one man operation
    Beg me to show you the ropes
    Well I can't get no vacuumication"

    No one understands him except for himself. Some people wish they could be like that as though they'd beg him, but he realizes that it's like a black hole that sucks you dry.


    "So tired of fooling around
    In just a one way conversation
    What the stitch's
    I scratch what itches
    Bravo self-gratification"

    He's tired of sleeping around to satisfy himself, but feels as though he needs to prove something to himself. He also see's sex as an "Itch" that needs to be scratched.

    Even the title implies this meaning. Solo meaning he's alone and flights meaning sex.
