"Tension Head" as written by Josh Homme and Nick Oliveri....
Every day I wake up,
Feeling this way.
I take it down town
With all the action going down
I strike a match,
Strike a match.
Work it up!

I'm feeling so sick
I feel so fucking sick
On the bathroom floor
Gotta get out and get right
Hustling little girls
Cheating little boys,yeah
Gotta get out, gotta get out
Get right
Gotta get out
I gotta get out
No more
No more
No more

I'm feelin' so sick
On the bathroom floor
I'm feelin' so sick
No more

Yeah

I'm feelin' so sick
Sick
On the bathroom floor
Sick
No no more

    General Comment"GOTTA GET OUT AND GET RIGHT"

    Every time I hear Nick sing that part I'm thinking, "No no no, you should stay right where you are, buddy!"

    And of course, what does he do when he leaves?

    Hustles little girls and cheats little boys.

    Meth is a helluva drug, kids

    General CommentCant beleave no1 has posted on here. This song is great, its also done by Mondo Generater (nicks band) but its called 13th Floor. the song is obviously about kicking (gotta get out, get right/no more) a drug habit (feeling sick/high life low life). well thats what i think.

    General Commentalcoholismimsy maybe? didn't he get kicked out of queens for that? and wasn't this published on 'R', released 2000. Don't know if his done h or coke, but sounds like it, as 'strike your match, cook it up'. A mate I once know injected coke. Her life was totally fucked when she was on it.

    General CommentDrugs much?

    but anyway, Mondo generator came out with a song called another tension head on Cocaine Rodeo the same year R came out with this song on it. I dunno if that helps anything, but i got it said.

    General CommentWhy does everyone think this song is about meth? It's about Heroin. See my reply to what Cubensis said above for more info.

    General CommentGod dammit this site is full of stupid idiots that have obviously had their eardrums torn out. Machine? CHEATING. CHEATING LITTLE BOYS.

    This song is probably about some sort of drug. Nick has done songs about meth on mondo generator, so it wouldn't be a huge surprise if it was about meth.
