"WoW" as written by and Chris Vrenna Brian Warner....
I had a dream
This one I feel the need to mention
I was happy for a while and I stopped being scared
And ashamed to say what's on my mind
But you thought I'd change after a while
And said you better treat me different or else
Or else seems like a stupid fucking thing to say to someone like me
Someone like me

Wow,
Wow,
Wow,
Wo-wo-wo-wo-wo
Wow

Don't be surprised I can look you in the eye
It's hard to take you serious when you take me Inside
Don't be surprised I can look you in the eye
It's hard to take you serious when you take me Inside
I'm worse than what you think you'd catch from me
Complicateds understated did you stop and take a look at who you fell in love with?
At who you fell in love with?
Does it matter how many times I say it?
It never gets old thats why I have to say

Wow,
Wow,
Wow,
Wo-wo-wo-wo-wo-wo-wo

Don't be surprised I can look you in the eye
It's hard to take you serious when you take me Inside
Don't be surprised I can look you in the eye
It's hard to take you serious when you take me Inside
It doesn't matter if you're going to come or just going
I never wanted you to come here anyway
There's a word thats like you
Because it can be a noun a verb a exclamation or the thing I say
When something is unbelievable when
I'm not able to believe how unbelievably unbelievable
That you believe you could not believable
That's when I have to say

Wow,
Wow,
Wow,
Wo-wo-wo-wo-wo-wo-wo
Wow

Don't be surprised I can look you in the eye
It's hard to take you serious when you take me Inside
Don't be surprised I can look you in the eye
It's hard to take you serious when you take me Inside
It doesn't matter how many times I say it
It never gets old
That's why I have to say

Wow

    General CommentThis is what he said in an interview on SG: "It's funny to me because the first time I played the song, without any singing on it, because the music is so absurd. We just started recording it and I refused to let anybody try and do what they're supposed to do. I said, "Just hit record." I made Twiggy play keyboards, and I started playing guitar with one string on it, and I had a microphone and we got done and the first thing we said was "Wow." Well that's what it is. It's like the "Macarena" of nonsense and confusion, and it really represents something that we always strive to accomplish."

    He said that WOW was the first song where he was regaining his confidence back.

    as far as the meaning:

    "i had a dream, this one i feel the need to mention."

    I think his dream is the relationship here.

    "i was happy for 'awhile' and i stopped being scared
    and ashamed to say what's on my mind"

    He played the nice boyfriend and was what she wanted, until he decided to be himself again.

    "but you thought i'd change after 'awhile'
    you said "you'd better treat me different, or else!"

    She on the otherhand believed the act as who he was. She gave him an ultimatum.

    "or else" seems like a stupid fucking thing to say to someone like me.
    someone like me? wow. wow. wow.wwwwwwwwwow don't be surprised, i can look you in the eye
    but it's hard to take you serious when you take me inside."

    This whole section is his sheer shock that she thinks she's in control. He's never let anyone else tell him what to do, so what makes you so special. The sex line is perfect since sex is often an act of submission and domination. Its hard to take her demands seriously, when he's so clearly the one doing the f***ing here.

    "i am worse than what you think you'd catch from me
    'complicated' is understated, did you stop and take a look at who you fell in love with?
    at who you fell in love with?" it doesn't matter how many times i say it. it never gets old. that's why i have to say...

    He's telling her he's worse than she EVER thought and she should've looked a little harder at who he was, since he's always been this way and he's never changed. Why would you fall in love with someone like me when you knew what I was about.

    "it doesn't matter if you're going to come or just going. i never wanted you to come here anyway"

    Here he's pretty much saying. I didn't want to fall for you, or you to fall for me. The sexual was best.

    "there's a word that's like you because it can be a noun, a verb, an exclamation or the thing i say when something is unbelievable. "when i'm not able to believe how unbelievably unbelievable that you believe you could not be leavable. that's when i have to say."

    He's being cute here, but the message is clear. You are not so special that I wouldn't depart. It's unbelievable that you'd think that you'd be worth more than the f***.

    General CommentI think this song is obviously about Dita. It's been reported in tons of interviews how she couldn't handle the drugs and the whole rock 'n' roll lifestyle; I think this is his way of responding ("did you stop and take a look at who you fell in love with?"). I dunno, maybe it only makes sense to me. But it's hard to take someone seriously about their complaints when they obviously knew what kind of person you were before getting involved with you ("don't be surprised i can look you in the eye, it's hard to take you serious when you take me inside"). She obviously was aware of his lifestyle and only chose to make a big deal of it AFTER they were married.


    But that's just my opinion, so....

    General CommentThe non-English part is in German...but I'm not very good at it (not yet, at least :P) ...I just manage to catch some parts like " you kiss me and you ..", " it feels so good " "I like it" and at the end "so good" ..so...I suppose it's all sexual...
    And about the song...I like it very much, it's so decadent and sexy at the same time... I hope all the other songs of the new CD will be at least so good as the ones that we have now. And the lyrics...WOW! xD

    General Commenti'll try to translate the german parts as good as i can...

    "du kuesst mich und beruehrst mich und es fuehlt sich so gut an"
    you kiss me and you touch me and it feels so good
    "es fuehlt sich so gut an"
    it feels so good
    "ich will einfach mit dir zusammen sein..."
    i just want to be with you
    "ich mag es wenn du mich [...]"
    i like/love it when you [couldn't figure out the rest yet]
    "sei nicht ueberrascht, wenn ich dir in die augen sehen kann"
    don't be surprised when i can look you in the eye
    "ich mag es wenn du's mit mir tust, du darfst nicht aufhoeren, es fuehlt sich einfach so gut an, so gut..."
    i like/love it when you're doing it with me, don't you stop, it just feels so good, so good...


    to me it sounds like it's taken from an austrian 1930s porno movie

    General Commenti honestly don't find anything sexual about this song.
    which is weird cuz i can usually pervert anything.

    i'm not sure what it's about really.
    i have no idea. but it is one of my favourites.
    can't fucking wait for THEOL.

    "it doesn't matter if you're going to come"

    General Commentits about how they (im gonna try to stay unisex here) can fuck you but never take you seriously. they can look you in the eye tell you they love you but secretly or even openly hate you/resent you for whatever reason. BUT keep fucking you.
