"Good Sister/Bad Sister" as written by Courtney M Love and Eric T. Erlandson....
Good sister, bad sister
Better burn that dress, sister
Scar tissue, blood blister
Suck up on the dregs, sister

I can't and I want to so bad
And I try but I can't and I want to so bad
And I try but I can't and I want to so bad
And I try but I can't and I want to so bad and...

Good sister, bad sister
You're different from the rest, sister
Choke strangle rip twist her
Sell me down the river, sister

I can't and I want to so bad
And I try but I can't and I want to so bad
And I try but I can't and I want to so bad
And I try, I try, I try

Come here and sit and talk about it
Just for a second and then sit back down
You're choking on big black bloody mouthfuls of it
You left me lying in your dog descent
And choking on your candy flesh

I'll be the biggest scar in your back
Run down and jagged and naked and blind
I'll be the biggest dick that you ever had
Hey, want it back?
Hey, want it back?
You want it

Good sister, bad sister
Tell me what you want, sister
Better watch your back, sister
Hey man, you cannot resist her

I, I can't and I want to so bad
And I try but I can't and I want to so bad
And I try but I can't and I want to so bad
And I try but I can't and I try, I try

Sugar star comes down to talk to me
She comes to crucify all who believe
I am not your ruby degrees
And sugar comes from her arteries

I'll be the biggest sky
Run down and jagged and naked and blind
I'll be the biggest scar in your sky
You want it bad
You want it bad
You want it bad

She's a, she is incredulous
With her catty feet she rips off her dress
She wants you in her descent
And choking on her candy flesh

I'll be the biggest scar in your back
Run down and jagged and naked and black
I'll be the biggest dick that you ever had
Hey, want it back?
You want it back
You want it

    General CommentI think it was written about Courtney’s relationship with Kat Bjelland. They were like sisters, but she didn’t feel Kat always treated her right. Courtney describes herself as a hideous scar on Kat’s back; something you don’t want but can’t get rid of. Courtney and Kat used to fight over the ‘babydoll’ look (“Better burn that dress sister”), boyfriends, and even the music they wrote (Ever noticed the similarity between Hole’s ‘I Think That I Would Die’ and Babes In Toyland’s ‘Ariel’?) She doesn’t want Kat to treat her badly anymore, so she says “Better watch your back, sister”

    My InterpretationTo me, this song is about a relationship between two completely different alpha-females. They are opposing enemies.

    General CommentWow thanks dollface. I didn't know that.
    I always thought Violet was about Kat B. Am I right?

    General CommentKat Bjelland has said that Violet was just a name they both used; it was like a muse sort of. I'm pretty sure Violet is about Billy Corgan but it could also be referencing her relationship with Kat. Also, the Babes in Toyland song Bruise Violet is pretty blatantly referring to Courtney (in my opinion, anyway).
