"Motherfucker" as written by and Mark O. Everett....
It's a motherfucker
Being here without you
Thinking 'bout the good times
Thinking 'bout the bad
And I won't ever be the same

It's a motherfucker
Getting through a Sunday
Talking to the walls
Just me again
But I won't ever be the same
I won't ever be the same

It's a motherfucker
How much I understand
The feeling that you need someone
To take you by the hand
And you won't ever be the same
You won't ever be the same

    General CommentActually, it's a song about missing his then-girlfriend/now-wife. She was in Russia and he wasn't.

    General CommentA song about missing his mother or sister, but most probably his mother.

    General Commenti think it's about missing someone dead. he will be the same when his girlfriend comes back or he goes there. also, he said that "she [his wife] only thinks I wrote two good songs, "it's a motherfucker" and "fresh feeling", and one of them is about her." i'm inclined to believe that "fresh feeling" is about the wife, and also, imagine him hangin out with mom on a sunday, and now he's all sad cos she's gone. of course he does say "just me again" like whoever he's singin to came into his life and then dissapeared again.

    but as for me, i first listened to this song right after i talked to this girl who i really cared a lot about and i really felt like she didn't care about me at all and she lived far away and i was driving home listening to it. it was the sweetest pain in the world, it was like,
    she had killed me and left me alive to know it, and that was a good thing.

    General CommentI like it... but it rates after R.E.M.'s "Be Mine." (Check it out, it's good stuff.)

    It brings to mind this poem that someone i knew once wrote. This kid was an idiot, but I liked what he wrote:
    "My love for you is like a pussing wound." and so on.
    How profound, Donne.

    Hey, don't steal it... it's not mine. I don't know what you *could* do with it, but... hey, be fair.

    I feel bad for Eels-man. His life sucked.

    Peace.

    General CommentA lot of eels songs have the "My love for you is like a pussing wound," sort of sound, even. My Beloved Monster is one.

    Ah, I continue to reminisce:
    Has anyone ever read Catch-22? I'm in the middle of it, and Heller writes about these characters "negatively." He doesn't describe them with what they DO, but it's what they DON'T DO that make them individual characters. For instance, Yossarian was thinking about the Captian's Club (I believe it was called), and he was proud for all the work that he DIDN'T put into it.

    That's the sort of feeling I get from Eel's love songs.
