Who scared you
Why were you born, my babe.

In two-time's arms
With all of your charms, my love.

Why were you born
Just to play with me,
To freak out
Or to be beautiful, my dear?

Load your head,
Blow it up.
Feeling good, baby.

Load your head,
blow it up.
Feeling good, baby.
Ah.

Well my room is so cold,
You know you don't have to go, my babe.
And if you want it up right,
I'm gonna love you tonight, my love.

Well I'm glad that we came,
I hope you're feeling the same.
Who scared you
And why were you born,
Please stay.

I see a rider
Coming down the road.
Got a virgin
Carrying a heavy load.
One sack of silver,
And one bag of gold.

    General CommentHow about...

    Well, my room is so cold
    You know you don't have to go
    And if you warm it up right
    I'm gonna love you tonight, my love

    because "if you want it up right" just... doesn't sound right

    General Commentcould the girl maybe have been hurt in some way by a boyfriend and now she is cheating on him with Jim. Thats kinda what I got out of "In two-times arms, with all of your charms..." Well, it sounds more like she went over there to hang and do some drugs, and Jim is trying to convince her to stay the night.

    What I have trouble understanding is the last part, but it could just be another drug reference. "One sack of silver and one bag of gold" maybe making a reference to money and a bag of something?

    General CommentThis song is very obscure, almost sounds like refrences of the christ child, refrences to drug abuse (load your head blow it up) and perhaps a lady friend who may be troubled as to come from an emotionally damaging past? who knows, go have another needle jimmy =)
