I know you've had a fucked up life
growing up in a stupid town
your mother was a mixed-up chirp and your father he just fucked around
a little too much for his own good
i'd kill the bastard if i could
i'd kill all the boys w/ their fucked up noise
and all the bullshit they seem to enjoy
the kids at school call you a slut
nothing but a what the fuck are they into, those stupid fools
loser, asshole, suck all the luck
out of the world and you
if i can give it back to you i will
i'll kick their asses all over town, all over town, i'd turn it over
and i don't even know you that well
but what the hell, summer spell(?)
what's it like going out,when no one knows what you're about
abused and used and cut into,by hollow men with nothing to do
you laugh all the time and try to get high, and try to hide behind no lies
they fucked your head up ,that's for sure
your heart is ripped and wrapped in fur
but you know that sex is pity and insane
and magic seems to kill the pain
and the things that go on inside your brain ,make you seem to thinkthat
you're to blame
don't think about it, throw it out, love 'em all a nd say it loud
fight the scum bags that slap you around
scream,be crazy,lost and found
we don't have to tell you what is right
we have all the faith in what's not right
psychic hearts go out to you
a psychic heart arrives to you
and my prayer to you is that you do all the things you set out to do
live your life the way you want
but will you remember one thing for me, i will always love you
i will always love you

    General CommentAwesome awesome song. This song perfectly describes to me how I ffel about an ex-girlfriend. I'd imagine that's what Thurston Moore had in mind too.

    To me he's telling someone he knows what a fucked up life they had, that nothing was fair for them from the start and that he feels bad about it but it's too late because of the way things turned out. He undoubtedly wishes her the best and will always care.

    General CommentBefore the Spider-Man movie came out, my friend and I were writing a script for our own version, and we wanted this to be the Peter Parker theme, as he walks down the street thinking about his unrequited love, Mary Jane. Ha! It would have been a whole different kind of movie.

    General Commentprobably isn't about an ex-girlfriend, more likely it is for female fans - "i don't even know you that well" - who have to deal with the bullshit and sexism of high school and the suburbs. He's saying that the losers in your hicksville town might think your a freak but hopefully his record will help you cope - "psychic hearts go out to you" - until you can get away to a better place- "and my prayer to you is that you do all the things you set out to do live your life the way you want". Other songs on the record are about women who did - Ono Soul, Patti Smith Scratch Acid - and how he loves them for it.
