"60 Feet Tall" as written by and Alison Mosshart Dean Fertita....
You're so cruel and shameless
But I can't leave you be
You're so cold and dangerous
I can't leave you be
You got the kind of loving
I need constantly

Hooked up to my motor
All day long
We go down to Texas
Up to Montreal

Two eyes none the wiser
In the deep
When the water gets hotter
Both hands in the deep

You got my attention
You got it all

I can take the trouble
I'm 60 feet tall

I know it ain't easy
I must tap your evil well
Cause boy, you come roaring
Like a bat out of hell
You drive me so reckless
You'll kill us all

I can take the trouble
I'll take you on

I can take the trouble
I'm 60 feet tall

You're so cruel and shameless
But I can't leave you be
You're so cold and dangerous
I can't leave you be
You got the kind of loving
I need constantly

I can take the trouble
Cause I'm 60 feet
Tall

    General CommentKnowingly addicted to a troublesome guy whom she knows is a bad influence but in denial by claiming she "can take the trouble 'cause [she's] 60 feet tall."

    General CommentSeems to be from the point of view of the person Alison is talking about in 'Hang You From The Heavens.' They're in a destructive relationship, abuser and victim, but in a way they both seem to like and feel excited in their postions.

    General CommentI always got the impression this one was a lot more about lust than any deeper relationship. I mean, the only good traits she describes about whomever she's speaking is that they're apparently a good lay. Otherwise they're a pretty miserable excuse for a person, but she's able to tolerate it because they're good in bed. Similar themes to other songs on the album, sure, but this track always sounded much more impersonal.

    My InterpretationI think this song is about a girl wanting to be with someone who is considered 'bad news'. She, however, is not oblivious to this; She doesn't care because she's tough and she can handle it.
