Leave me
Lying here
Cause I don't wanna go
Leave me
Lying here
Cause I don't wanna go
Leave me
Lying here
Cause I don't wanna go
Tell me, tell me what you really want from me
You gotta let me know
I'm falling off and I need you terribly
One down, and one to go

Volcano girls we really can't be beat
Warm us up and watch us blow
Now and then we fail and we admit defeat
We're falling off
We are watered down and fully grown

Leave me
Lying here
Cause I don't wanna go
Leave me
Lying here
Cause I don't wanna go

A million miles of running
And I hit the wall
I bounce back and I run some more
This is it, I'm giving up
I'm calling quits
So get down and meet me on the floor
Way to go, way to flip off everyone
I steal your thunder then I try to bolt
But I could stand a little pity now and then
I'm falling off, I am watered down and fully grown

Go, I don't wanna go
I don't wanna go
I don't wanna go
I don't wanna go

I told you about the seether before
You know, the one that's neither or nor
Well here's another clue if you please
The seether's Louise
(One, Two, Three, Wow)

Leave me
Lying here
Cause I don't wanna go
Leave me
Lying here
Cause I don't wanna go
Leave me
Lying here
Cause I don't wanna go

Leave me, leave me, leave me
Go, I don't wanna go
I don't wanna go
I don't wanna go
I don't wanna go

    General Commenti love this song and i am a girl musician and this is the first veruca salt song i heard, and its m favorite. bort your fucking mom, i personaly think that girl musicians have more talent, but people like christina agulera has a lot of tanelt but make THE WORST music in the world. Veruca salt did well, and on the other hand, men have less talent, but use it wiser.

    General CommentEight Arms to Hold you was not Veruca Salt's last album, but it was the last album with Louise and Nina together. After this Nina went on to do her own solo stuff. For me, after Nina left, VS was never the same.

    the nod to "Seether"...that's from their first album American Thighs where their first hit/single is called......"Seether". you should listen to that first album. it's f'ing great and better than Eight Arms (even though some of my favorite songs are on Eight Arms -ie. Shutterbug). Apparently Seether is about a woman's anatomy, if you will. and as said up there the "coup de gras" the seether's Louise, yes i believe this was Nina's way of saying she was done with VS or possibly just the whole thing. that is till she went solo (which is great too, but not like VS so don't go in expecting the rock they brought out as a group).

    and i'm done.

    General Commentyou guys always seem to get it all wrong. volcano girl is a sexual reference. it's a girl who squirts. get it. if not, reread the lyrics.

    General CommentI'm so glad someone else interprets "volcano girl" to be a sexual reference, I thought my mind was too in the gutter =P. I agree with 'thejerk!'

    "warm us up & watch us blow" c'mon people, its obvious.

    Song MeaningIt's about sex.

    How do so many people miss the meaning of this? Are Americans having sex that is THAT bad these days?

    Ladies, if you have never felt the way the writer of this song felt, but want to, give me a call. :)
