"No One Loves Me & Neither Do I" as written by John Baldwin, Josh Homme and Dave Grohl....
Think I saw her for the first time maybe in a news stand
She was picking a mag and dressed oblique
She called me baby, and was a mean lady with the song on the radio
So I told her I was rich, then she asked could I use a dirty bitch? (of course)

[Chorus]
Then she said, 'No one loves me' neither do I
You get what you give,
I give goodbye
And if I should vanish
Don't get caught off guard
Don't hold it against me
Unless it gets hard

(Oh, oi, oo, oop! Aaawhhha, yea, aaawhhha, that's right)

Well if sex is a weapon, then smash, boom, pow,
How ya like me now?
You can't always do it right, you can always do whats left
So I told her I was trash, she winked and laughed and said I already know
I've got a beautiful place to put your face' and she was right,

[Chorus]

Cutting her loose, I'm ready to go
People in the world, your gonna lose control
Cut me a noose, I'm ready to go
People in the world, your gonna lose control
Cut me a noose, I'm ready to go
People in the world, your gonna lose control
Cut me a noose, I'm ready to go
People in the world, you're gonna lose

I know how to burn with passion
Hold nothing back for future ration
Give all you are, do not make haste
Savor every single taste

You get, cut

I know how to be controlled
Do what they said, son, watch your tongue
Quick to react, to break the box
Turn on queue, as your cell door locks
Behind you

I know how to be lost in lust
Not because you should, but because you must
It burns white hot, and so climbs the mile
This lightening strike isn't always kind

So use me up
Use me up

    General CommentA few things... I don't think we're analyzing all of Josh's poetry to it's maximum potential. THe reason I love QOTSA lyrics and TCV lyrics especially is because Josh adds amusing plays on words and double entendres in all his songs. A few things that haven't been mentioned that I thought I should bring to your attention...

    "you can't always do right, you can always do what's LEFT" (instead of "right" or correct. Just a little funny play on words he threw in)

    "So I told her I was trash, so she winked & laughed and said I already know..." Earlier in the song he told her he was rich so he could convince her to have sex with him. Here, he's admitting he was full of shit. But she said she already knew so obviously she didn't care anyways. This song is entirely about have sex for the fun of it and giving into your desires.

    "I know how to burn with passion
    Hold nothing back for future ration
    Give all you are, do not make haste
    Savor every single taste you get
    Cut

    I know how to beat control
    Do opposite of what you're told
    Quick to react, to break the box
    Turn on queue, as your cell door locks
    Behind you

    I know how to be lost in lust
    Not because you should, but because you must
    It burns white hot, and so clouds the mind
    This lightning strike isn't always kind"

    This part of the song is so deep! I guess in a nutshell, he's saying not to get caught up in relationships that aren't going anywhere or you'll feel trapped (in a cell for example)
    The last stanza is my favourite: Lust is a natural thing that is completely uncontrollable. Whether you control your actions or not is something completely different. Lust clouds your judgement and makes it impossible to make decent choices and it's not always a good thing to have because you can't control when you lust or who you lust for.

    TCV!! \m/

    General CommentJamafrican, I haven't broken down the song verse by verse (just in general), but here's me giving it a shot...

    "Think I saw her for the first time maybe in a news stand
    She was picking a mag, dressed oblique
    She called me baby, and was a mean lady with the song on the radio
    So I told her I was rich, then she asked could I use a dirty bitch?
    Of course"

    (Narrator sees sexy lady at a magazine stand dressed in black. She was flirty, narrator tells her he's rich and she wanted into his life (of course))

    Then she said: No one loves me... and neither do I
    You get what you give,
    I give goodbye
    And if I should vanish,
    Don't get caught off guard
    Don't hold it against me,
    Unless it gets hard

    (Woman tells him she's pretty much looking for a one-night stand. Don't be offended if I leave tomorrow. "Don't hold it against me, unless it gets hard" has innuendo all over it.)

    Well if sex is a weapon, then: smash, boom, pow
    How you like me now?
    You can't always do right, you can always do what's left
    So I told her I was trash, so she winked & laughed and said I already know...
    'I've got a beautiful place to put your face', and she was right

    (They're having sex, narrator's pretty much in cocky mode about it. Sometimes you can't always go for the relationship or whatever and just have to settle for what's left, this random chick on the street. Last line is self-explanatory.)

    Then I said: No one loves me... and neither do I
    It makes perfect sense,
    So I never asked why
    I'll go tomorrow,
    'Cause life doesn't wait
    You can keep your soul,
    I don't want a cell mate

    (Narrator tells lady he isn't looking for anything serious and just a one-night stand essentially. I don't want a relationship, boldly stated in the last sentence.)

    Cutting her loose, I'm ready to go
    People in the world, you're gonna lose control
    Cut me a noose, I'm ready to go
    People in the world, you're gonna lose control
    Cut me a noose, I'm ready to go
    People in the world, you're gonna lose control
    Cut me a noose, I'm ready to go
    People in the world, you're gonna lose

    (He's out, what's next...)

    (BOOOOOOOOOOOOM! Just wanted to throw this in because this part of the song always gets me.)

    I know how to burn with passion
    Hold nothing back for future ration
    Give all you are, do not make haste
    Savor every single taste you get
    Cut

    (Live in the moment, don't hold back for tomorrow.)

    I know how to beat control
    Do opposite of what you're told
    Quick to react, to break the box
    Turn on queue, as your cell door locks
    Behind you

    (Have fun or you'll be stuck in relationship jail.)

    I know how to be lost in lust
    Not because you should, but because you must
    It burns white hot, and so clouds the mind
    This lightning strike isn't always kind

    (Sex is best when you're in lust.)

    So use me up
    Use me up

    (Use me up and move on.)

    I can't believe how much I broke this song down but it's still awesome.

    General CommentThis is just straight up baby-making music. Seriously, I don't need to break apart the lyrics to explain why this song is about sex haha.

    Sidenote: I fucking LOVE this song.

    General CommentHey all, I updated the lyrics to fix inaccuracies. I used the booklet from the CD for this.

    @ConorM: Now that I have fixed a mistake, I think the line makes a little more sense.
