"My Curse" as written by and Greg Dulli....
You hurt me baby
I flinch so when you do
Your kisses scourge me
Hyssop in your perfume

Oh, I do not fear you
And slave I only use
As a word to describe the special way I feel for you
You look like me

And I look like no one else
We need no other
As long as we have ourselves
But I won't cry about it

Every time you get obsessed
Every time I came undressed
All ugly thoughts are gone
I'm sure we'll all be friends

I'll try to break your back
You'll try to make amends
Curse softly to me baby
And smother me in your love

Temptation comes not from hell but from above
And there's blood on my teeth
When I bite my tongue to speak
Zip me down, kiss me there

I can smile now
You won't find out ever
Hurt me baby
I flinch so when you do

Your kisses scourge me
Hyssop in your perfume
Oh I do not fear you
And slave I only use as a word to describe

The way I feel when I'm with you
If I have to lie about it everytime I came undressed

    My InterpretationI think this is about a dom/slave relationship...could possibly be one that is not completely accepted by the slave but they are too shameful or fearful to run away so they stay.

    :::You look like me

    And I look like no one else
    We need no other
    As long as we have ourselves
    But I won't cry about it

    Every time you get obsessed
    Every time I came undressed
    All ugly thoughts are gone
    I'm sure we'll all be friends::::

    This portion of lyrics I think describes the possibility that this is a parent/child relationship involved as well (You Look Like Me) and (I Look Like No One Else) maybe this was an only child further complicating things because the child endangered here in this complicated scenario had no one else to turn to. Maybe it was the mother or father doing the sexual abuse and the child here is not able to go to anyone else cause the other parent is estranged or would otherwise take the other parents side or knows about the abuse but does nothing.
