"Pumpkin" as written by Adrian Nicholas Matthew Thaws and Alison Elizabeth Goldfrapp....
Pumpkin
You're hollow kid
More how I'm to do
Let the heart give us some
Set the word seeds
Like flowers they
Shine out when
I find what will make you
Love me
Life is our find
Hollow is he
(Tricky section)
So hollow
Don't back
Over someone who
(?)
Follow thee
How, how I feel
(Tricky section)
So hollow
How I
Go on
(Tricky section)

I can't breathe and I can't see
MTV moves too fast, I refuse to understand
You go your way and I'll see mine
Feels like wasted time
And it feels like I must be blind
How'd you like yourself, you don't know yourself

I smell of she and I fail to be
Well, anyway
Well, anyway
Well, anyway

I can't breathe and I can't see
I can't see and I can't breathe

    General CommentI think that Alison is representing the success and hollowness of the music industry and kind of trying to seduce Tricky in the song.

    Pumpkin
    you're hollow within
    I find what will make him
    Love me
    Life is our find
    Hollow is he

    And tricky is so wrapped up in the music that he doesn't know who is is and is confused I guess.

    How'd you like yourself?
    You don't know yourself
    I can't breathe and I can't see
    MTV moves too fast, I refuse to understand

    If that makes any sense.

    Anyways it's a beautiful song and I'm suprised no one has posted about the song...

    General CommentIt's a dig at Billy Corgan, that's why the song "Suffer" is sampled. Tricky has said in an interview that he thinks Corgan is exceedingly pretentious.

    General Commenti used to call my wife pumpkin. "Pumpkin i'd say get the fuck off the lawn bitch, i just mowed it!' one day however, after she fell off bike and landed on my prize roses, i just snapped into a fit of rage and balled my fist into her thick hobbit like skull. She lay there in the middle of my front garden wailling in pain. surfice to say i am now spending the rest of my free life in a 2 by 2 meter cell with a guy known only to his close friends as "pumpkin pusher" i now wish i had killed the bitch so i would be sent to maximum security prison instead of this hell.
