"I Think I Lost My Headache" as written by and Josh/oliveri Homme....
You know why
They called and just let it ring
No reply
The door is open I swear
Ain't no use in pickin' up
You know why

[Chorus]
It's all my head I know
So they tell me so
Until my head explodes
Into my head it goes

Tastes so good
Oh, but I knew it would
Tastes so good
Burn like a match house
Medicate just to make you soft
Love is blind

Catchin' the rest me
What the hell were they thinking of
You know why

[Chorus]

    General Commentok...i dont think any of you guys have i right yet...the chorus is:
    It's all my head I know
    Or so they tell me so
    Until my head explodes
    until my headache goes.

    and that is correct.

    Song MeaningI think this song,you'll be surprised to know, is about Josh Homme over coming the emotional breakdown that followed after he killed former Queens of the Stone age bassist, Nick Oliveri, with a screwdriver after he found Nick had been copulating with his bitch.Josh killed him in a fit of rage,drove out of town with the body in his trunk and buried it beside the motorway(it still hasn't been found yet). He then wrote this song to explain the brief emotional guilt that followed that night and how it came and passed like a headache. I think he got of likely with the murder by recieving like 24 hours of community service cause he made such a kickass song and also no one really agreed with Nick's antics i.e playing naked on stage and his foot fetish...but yeah there's a whole lot of meaning behind this song and all the shit u just read above is all relevant to it!!

    General CommentI think the annoying ass ending is part of giving you a headache or some sort of irony.

    Am i the only person that has had sex while the entire song played? :P don't know how I did that....
    I want to play it at bars on the jukebox but I would get shot I'm sure for the horns.

    General CommentCannabis gets you paranoid (sometimes) but most times it turns out to be just in your head. Also, as I said before, pot kills headache and every stoner will tell you that. However, the lyrics also refer to other drugs, mostly downers.

    Ofcourse this is not the only way to look into this song but you can use that as a starting point. I hate when people who actually hadn't used any drugs try to comment on a song, obviously influenced by different types of drugs. It just sounds silly.

    General CommentThis sounds like after a long party Josh is sitting in his living room holding his head in his hands thinking of all the drugs he took, taking another dose of medication, mayby painkillers. The doorbell rings and he can´t even get up to open the door so he wishes the door was already open. Reminds me of a situation in my life when the cops were standing in front of our door and we were all too drunk to open the door... They were very patient and kept on ringing for about one hour. lol

    General CommentJosh has said this song is about paranoia:

    youtube.com/…

    However, I think there's a little more to it than just that.

    General CommentThe only problem I have with this song is the ending. It's far too drawn out, in my opinion.

    Other than that, I like it very much!

    General CommentAbsolutely correct lyrics:


    You know why
    They called and just let it ring
    No reply
    The door is open I swear
    Ain't no use in picking up
    You know why

    It's all my head I know
    So they tell me so
    Until my head explodes
    Into my head it goes

    Tastes so good
    Oh, but I knew it would
    Tastes so good
    Burn like a match house
    Medicate just to make you soft
    Love is blind

    Catch and release me
    What the hell were they thinking of?
    You know why

    It's all my head I know
    So they tell me so
    Until my head explodes
    Into my head it goes

    General CommentI get the feeling this might have something to do with hypochondria

    General CommentSounds like a hangover, and trying to beat it with hair of the dog. The love is blind sounds like alcoholism, but I may just be seeing the whole thing through my life-goggles.
