They will sum it all up in a sentence
A verdict made by those who know
I'm ready to make a commitment
I'm willing to make love to concrete

Smiles
Bruises
Smiles
Bruises
Bars in the womb
I hide my dirty minutes under the dirty mattress and they are making me itch
My time is spilt milk

My skin is a layer of soot
I'm spending my days scrubbing
I'm trying so hard to act like nothing happened(no one left to blame)
I'm trying so hard to find that fresh clean smell(no one left to blame)

Smiles
Bruises
Smiles
Bruises
Bars in the womb
I hide my dirty minutes under the dirty mattress and they are making me itch
My time is spilt milk

Cruel words sleep above me
Mounting and teasing

I AM WHAT I'VE DONE
I AM WHAT I'VE DONE
I'm sorry
I'm sorry
I'm sorry
Sorry
Sorry
Sorry

    General CommentFirst of all, TreAdos: The keyboard player (Roddy Bottum) is gay, not the bass player. And Bottum wrote the lyrics to Be Aggressive, not Patton (he even said that he wrote it, because he thought that it would be funny to make a straight singer sing about gay oral sex!).

    Secondly, Patton has said that the song Jizzlobber is about his fear of going to jail. While he didn't elaborate, I assume (based on the lyrics) that he is afraid of getting raped. The beginning of the song seems to be him pleading to a police officer, and trying to get out of going to jail (he's willing to make a commitment, he's willing to make love to concrete). Him hiding his dirty minutes (the time spent getting raped) under his dirty mattress (mattresses are dirty in jail), is him trying to forget about what happened. He feels dirty after getting raped (my skin is soot, I spend my days scrubbing, etc.).

    General CommentTo me it sounds more like its about a guy who has committed a crime of some sort, and he's wishing it never happened ("I'm trying so hard to act like nothing happened").

    People are accusing him of this crime("They will sum it all up in a sentence"), and people just think of him as his crime like a murderer for example("I AM WHAT I'VE DONE").

    He's trying to live with the crime he's committed which was only a few minutes("dirty minutes"), but the guilt is eating away at him ("I hide my dirty minutes under the dirty mattress and they are making me itch").

    I could be totally reading this out of context though, but I dont think the title of the song has much to do with the meaning unless its something to do with this 'crime'. Thoughts?

    General CommentAnyone ever seen Silence of The Lambs?

    Remember Miggs, the nutjob in the cell next to Hannibal Lector who swallowed his tongue?

    Remember the scene where he throws his sperm onto Jodie Foster through his cell bars?

    Following on from this reference, I think this song is about a guy in an sylum/prison for rape or murder and going even nuttier inside. And lobs some Jizz around too.

    General CommentI think this song is about someone who is sexually frustrated. Someone who masturbates a lot and does sexually devious things and is ashamed of it. "Jizz" means semen, "Lobber" is someone who abuses something physically.

    General CommentI think MrTragedy is on to something. 'Dirty minutes' could be some kind of reference to porn mags. They're usually kept under mattresses.
    There's loads of different ways of referring to male masturbation. One of them's "Shaking hands with the one-eyed milkman", which could uncover the meaning of the line 'My time is spilt milk' (i.e. spilt semen).
    "My skin is a layer of soot. I'm spending my days scrubbing" is probably something to do with the idea that occasionally you do something that makes you feel so dirty that no matter how hard you scrub in the shower, you still feel as though the 'dirt' is still on. You're not actually covered in dirt, you just feel as though you shouldn't have done what you did and are trying to clense yourself. It's usually after doing something that isn't socially acceptable, such as excessive masturbation.
    That's the rant over with, now for the good stuff. Jizzlobber is such a cool title...

    General CommentI think it's along the lines of what Mr T. suggested about it basically being directly about masturbation , excess masturbation or some other sad sexual vice .... but more than that it may be getting at what's behind all that....feeling unable to control oneself, feeling to weak to overcome vices of the flesh, desperation .....and the beautiful ending is saying these addictions of the flesh are a tragedy, a waste of a holy spirit, but even despite the dirtyness and bruising the spirit remains beautiful and holy.

    General CommentThis song is about someone who feels guilty about masterbation. And in the end he is either talking to himself...or has been caught

    General CommentGood theories, but that doesn't explain the "Smiles" "bruises" and, most cryptic, "bars in the womb". It may be because spilled semen, such as masturbation, leads to no new life in the womb, hence masturbating creates bars in the womb, perhaps. Or, perhaps the reference is to the fact that if he is incarcerated, then he will never have sex with a woman again, i.e., there are bars in his prison cell that act like "bars" in the "womb" by preventing sexual access to a woman. He is resigned to this fate when he says "I am willing to make love to concrete", that is, his sexual desires will be frustrated by the concrete prison of his cell. "My time as spilt milk" may simply mean no one will miss him or care that he is jailed, i.e., no one cries over spilt milk like himself. "Smiles. Bruises" perhaps refers to a normal prison experience on the surface, but that other prisoners or guards are meting out extra justice to him behind the scenes. What "cruel words sleep above me, mounting and teasing" refers to is obscure at this juncture.

    General CommentTwo possibilities that, at least, haven't been spelled out here:
    *the narrator was sodomized or sodomized someone and feels guilty about it
    *the narrator raped someone

    I always thought of "lobbing" in this context as throwing, tossing... like a projectile.

    I doubt this is supposed to apply to Patton himself, who sings a lot of other songs on Angel Dust in first person as well.
