"Berry" as written by Courtney M Love and Eric T. Erlandson....
Oh yeah, oh yeah
Oh yeah yeah, yeah yeah
Do you want a ride on my death machine?
Pump a dime in if you do

Oh yeah, oh yeah
Oh yeah yeah, yeah yeah
Yeah, I kill what I need
Yeah, I kill what I need

When I die won't you bury me?
'Cause I buried you, baby, deep in me
Oh yeah, oh yeah
Oh yeah yeah, yeah yeah

Cut it open
What's inside?
You drag me back there
Yeah, I want to know

Baby, I said I want to know
Never know, never know
Cut it open
Say pretty please

You'll drag it to the
Yeah, I want to know
Baby, I said I want to know
Never know, never know

And when I die, won't you bury me?
'Cause I buried you, baby, deep in me
Yeah, when you fall for the garbage man
You wind up in the garbage

    General CommentThis is a really good song. One of the best of the first Hole album. It's hard to explain what it's about but roughly I always interpreted as being about someone who doesn't really care, maybe a boyfriend who doesn't really care but the other person is infaturated with them and doesn't see what a loser they are. Yeah, basically someone who finds themselves attracted to assholes and likes to hang around people who aren't as good as them.

    Song MeaningI think it's about sex ("ride on my death machine", "buried deep in me"). I always found the last two lines intriguing.
