"Self Obsessed and Sexxee" as written by Kim Gordon, Lee M. Ranaldo, Steven Jay Shelley and Thurston Joseph Moore....
I remember when you first arrived
Magic marker on yr belly button all right (all right)
I read what you said you said drop dead oh no (oh no)
I need you now 'cause I know you got nowhere to go

Schizo action baby create a scene
I'm the type of guy to boost yr self esteem
We party all night 'cause it's you you you everyday
Self-obsessed and sexy all the way

I remember yr bloody trail to the top (the top)
Took it all too far now you just can't stop (don't stop)
I'll help collect yr soul from the lost & found (it's around)
And I will build you up while they tear you down

Schizo action baby create a scene
I'm the type of guy to boost yr self esteem
We party all night 'cause it's you you you everyday
Self-obsessed and sexy all the way (all the way)
Party party party party all the time
Party party party party all the time
Party party party party all the time
Party party party party all the time

    General CommentI agree with BlamedTonight314. It's about getting to the top and being a "womanizer" in a sense by taking advantage of girls who might not be the most confident in nature.

    General CommentIt's about self absorbed, narcissistic and shallow people with stereotypical celebrity personas, and most likely how Sonic Youth want to distance themselves from that.

    General Comment"Self-Obsessed and Sexxee" is the album's tribute to alternative rock's new breed. 'It's not about Courtney Love, it's not about Kathleen Hanna from [riot-grrrl group] Bikini Kill,' Thurston asures. 'It's just sort of about being attracted to somebody who's obviously out of control with self-obsession in the high-profile alternative-rock world."
