I don't mean to make a scene
But even the mob know what the hell I mean
The knot is tight on my blindfold
I got my flesh full of blood
I hate rock and roll

Some think too much
And come too soon
I just curse the sun
So I can howl at the moon

Don't wanna love you no more
Don't wanna love you less
I wanna be crushed by your sweet caress
What's the fuckin' difference
We all gonna die
You gonna do something kid?
Oh come on give it a try

Got no big plans but a good idea
Let's split this town and run everywhere
Yeah I got enemies
But they don't know
They won't get no glory
On that side of the hole

Well united by drifting alone
This is the army of none
Got no flag, got no home
Just riches and scabs
And awfulness
I confess
Let's do it again, said

    General Comment:Awesome song...can\'t believe no one has commented on it...

    I think this song is about how everybody sort of lives their life in their own \'scene\' but eventually we all reach the same point which is death..

    Well united by drifting alone
    This is the army of none
    Got no flag, got no home
    Just riches and scabs
    And awfulness
    I confess
    Let\'s do it again, said

    General Comment:I think it's more of how your music scene can become like a gang. Some scenes restrict you more then anything and then you can't do what you want. He's rejecting scenes as a whole.

    "But even the mob know what the hell I mean" - Get out while you can type of attitude.

    "The knot is tight on my blindfold" - Stuck in a situaion of blind faith.

    General Comment:Actually OpiumForThePeople it isn't "But even I don't know what the hell I mean" seeing as you can clearly make out the posted lyrics. Furthermore it makes perfect sense, I don't understand how it can't make sense to you.

    General Comment:Am I the only one who thinks this song is just blatantly sexual? Glory hole, blindfold, flesh full of blood? I think it's possibly the sexiest song ever recorded and that some of the lyrics are just there for texture and sound, and to add to the general mood.

    The people who don't like what he's about dont bother him too much, he can get away from them easily. Even if they don't him, or his scene, or his music, they arent going to get any glory by not liking it, but while he's playing guitar and singing, he's getting glory, regardless of what the people against it think.

    Kind of implies that he enjoys it a bit, he know full well what deal theyre getting.

    General Comment:For some reason, I feel that
    "What's the fuckin difference
    We all gonna die
    You gonna do something killer
    C'mon give it a try"

    could be about drugs. Like, what does it matter that we fuck ourselves up, we're gonna die anyway, wanna do something wild, do a line. But I don't know how much QOTSA sing about drugs anymore.

    General Comment:This song is just pure sex, so dirty, so rock and roll (despite the line 'I hate rock and roll). Yes, he is talking about the 'scene' and all that, but his vocals and the music is just screaming for it to be played in a stripclub. No surprise that it appeared on Season 3 of Californication in a stripclub scene...

    Favourite lines?

    'Don't wanna love you no more
    Don't wanna love you less
    I wanna be crushed by your sweet caress'
