I walk around with this all over me.
I cannot wash it clean.
You've got the ball.
You've got the ball -- I'm taking it from you.
And, today,
it's in the blood.
I left it in the blood you see,
so put the words together.
I'll be with you forever.
Get up.
We'll rise.
They'll pay.
And, wait until tomorrow night.
I can't recall yet if I'm black,
or if I'm white or wrong,
or if I'm white or wrong.
I am your creator.
Come with me, my congregation.
Get up -- I'll smack you back down.
Get up.
We'll rise.
They'll pay.
Get up -- I'll smack you back down.
You will become my diamond.
I'm yours, and you are mine.
Get up.
We'll rise.
They'll pay.

    General CommentThis song is colossal. Very demonstrative. Some lines suggest heroin addiction but I think there's a lot more to it than that. These could be Dulli's feelings on the relationship between he and his audience, and the transformation that he undergoes before the audience.
