"Give Me It" as written by and Robert James Smith....
Get away from me
Get your fingers out of my face
This room's so hot
This room's so hot

I break the walls
Get away from me
Leave me alone
Like the pig on the stairs
Hanging
In a groovy purple shirt

Gasping for air
I'm gasping for air
I'm gasping for love
I'm gasping for air...

Slit the cats like cheese
Then eat the sweet sticky things
Suck harder!
Suck harder!
Suck your insides
Insides out!

Blood thick swimming round your feet
As you're choking
Choking
Choking on the fleshy words

Give me it give me it give me it
Deaden my glassy mind
Give me it give me it
Make me blind
One step back and one step down
And slip the needles in my side...

My head is cold
My hands are cold
My heart is cold
My heart is black
And stops every fucking night
Every night
I wait until it stops...

Sing birds sing birds sing birds sing
Get away...

    General Commentthis is grunge invented about 8 years before it was actually invented. And just in a carefree manner at that.

    General CommentGreat song - unlike The Cure in alot of ways. Would make a good first-dance-wedding-song ;0). It's probably the same subject matter as I Want You (She's so Heavy) by The Beatles, but the other extreme in its delivery.

    General CommentPLus,
    it would thus fit in in any set that i dont know slipknot or whoever could play in concert easy, and even be a refreshment as well.
    HA!

    General CommentIt´s so strange... people say that the newest album is to "metal" to hard, but listen to this song!

    General CommentWell, I haven't listened to it, but there's some albums--take Slipknot's 'Volume Three: The Subliminal Verses'. They've got the...'harder'...stuff, then they've got songs like 'Circle' and 'Vermillion Part II'.

    General CommentThis is a total heroin song. In the song (and I assume in real life, at this time) he was a junkie, uncomfortable in his skin, and looking for a fix.

    General CommentSweet little ditty wreaking of panic attack and frenzy. Mostly self-harming, but frantically searching for others to blame.

    Sort of like what swims through my head when I'm really really hungover. Gasping for air, gasping for love.
