"Rescue" as written by and Ian Stephen/sergeant Mcculloch....
If I said I'd lost my way
Would you sympathize
Could you sympathize?
I'm jumbled up
Maybe I'm losing my touch
I'm jumbled up
Maybe I'm losing my touch
But you know I didn't have it anyway

Won't you come on down to my
Won't you come on down to my rescue

Things are wrong
Things are going wrong
Can you tell that in a song
I don't know what I want anymore
First I want a kiss and then I want it all

Won't you come on down to my
Won't you come on down to my rescue
Rescue, rescue, rescue

Things are wrong
Things are going wrong
Can you tell that in a song
Losing sense of those harder things
Is this the blues I'm singing?
Is this the blues I'm singing?
Is this the blues I'm singing?
Is this the blues I'm singing?

Won't you come on down to my
Won't you come on down to my rescue
Is this the blues I'm singing
Won't you come on down to my rescue

Won't you come on down to my
Won't you come on down to my
Won't you come on down to my
Won't you come on down to my
(Is this the blues I'm singing?)
Won't you come on down to my
(Rescue)
Won't you come on down to my
(Is this the blues I'm singing?)
(Rescue)
Won't you come on down to my
(Is this the blues I'm singing?)
(Rescue)
Won't you come on down to my
(Is this the blues I'm singing?)
(Rescue)
Won't you come on down to my
(Is this the, I'm singing)
Won't you come on down to my
(Is this the, I'm singing)

    General CommentTo me, it's coming from someone who wants an intimate relationship, and they are looking to a particular person to help them or "rescue" them from their celibate life thus far. It also seems that as they are pleading for help, they are slowly being rejected. A great song!

    General CommentHow can there only be one comment?! This is arguably one of the Bunnymen's best. This a great song off of a great album.

    My InterpretationIt's interesting to read the comments but you need to read the lyrics again... Knowing Mac for who he is, if you read between the lines you'll understand he's asking loved ones, friends, us as fans and anyone with humanity in them to "come on down to my rescue". He's at the depths of despair as an addict or slipping slowly into becoming an addict and the 'down' he's referring to is get down to his level of pain and anguish and understand he needs real help. A couple of clues to the meaning include the lead guitar introduction to the song mimicing an S.O.S. signal. As a reformed addict I can see the words for what they are... such as the line "First I wanna kiss and then I want it all". He's referring to the initial taste of the drug being so sweet and embracing, as an addict he can't stop there at just one hit, he's got to have more...
    Mac's a deep and interestingly gifted writer who hasn't had the deserving recognition that popular artists have today. the likes of Mr. Barlow or Miss Winehouse et al have had. I'm a Liverpool lad and E
