Sex and violence has lost it's charm
I need something to amuse
War is boring, it's not enough
I need a shock down to my shoes
Pedophile lust, tortured blood in the dust
Take all you can
As long as it's on a TV screen
Keep it away from my house, man
I'm long gone, I'm long gone, I'm long gone

My senses are burned to the core
So fuck me hard, I'll still want more
Sedation, now, is what I need
So I don't have to live with me
Slavery is still alive

Somebody's prayin'
Take anything you want
Just don't show me who I am

Sedate me with anything
So I don't have to live with me
Tell me, tell me that I'm free
Kill me with everything
Until there's nothing left of me
Tell me, tell me that I'm free
Gimme some gasoline
Gimme some gasoline

The beginning of this new time
Is coming to an end
We have run from all our ills
But we won't run again
Toxic meat, political deceit
Medicate me till I'm dead
And I'll take life from your can
Just don't show me who I am

Sedate me with anything
So I don't have to live with me
Tell me, tell me that I'm free
Kill me with everything
Until there's nothing left of me
Tell me, tell me that I'm free
Gimme some gasoline
Gimme some gasoline
Gimme some gasoline
Gimme some gasoline
Gimme some gasoline
Gimme some gasoline

Sedate me with anything
So I don't have to live with me
Tell me, tell me that I'm free
Kill me with everything
Until there's nothing left of me
Tell me, tell me that I'm free

Tell me, tell me that I'm free
(Gimme some gasoline)
Tell me, tell me that I'm free
(Gimme some gasoline)
Tell me, tell me that I'm free
(Gimme some gasoline)
Tell me, tell me that I'm free
(Gimme some gasoline)
Gimme some gasoline
Gimme some gasoline
Gimme some gasoline
Gimme some gasoline

    General CommentHeard this song a million times over and over at a friends house who was drunk and upset about his life. I think this song is about exactly that.

    Drugs, Alchol to escape from the harsh reality of this world, which he is sick of. He is asking for someone to light him on fire so he can be done with it all and doesn't have to realize that he is no better than anyone of us horrible people of the world today.

    General CommentI think this song is about how we need constant stimulation and are ignorant of the world around us because of it. We're fed with constant stimulation and we don't try to do anything to change the world, we take life from a can and are happy with it, instead of trying to improve it, because we're so obsessed with our own hedonistic tendencies. There's also an element not quite of self-loathing, but again, because we're fed so much shit we don't have to look at ourselves and change ourselves, we don't want to have to introspect because we wouldn't like what we see. I think the gasoline itself is supposed to be used to burn our past and the parts of our personality we don't want to see.
