"Screw" as written by and Robert James Smith....
When you screw up your eyes
When you screw up your face
When you throw out your arms
And keep changing your shape
Taste the taste in your mouth
Taste the taste on your tongue

On the film on your eyes of what I've become
What do I do when you screw up your eyes?
What do I do when you screw up your face?
What do I do

When you throw out your arms
Fall on the floor
And keep changing your shape?
Jump right into your mouth?
Jump around on your tongue?

And the film on your eyes of the way I've become
Makes me sick at the way that I try
Anything in the world
To impress that I'm doing this
Only for you

    General Commentthis is probably one of the few songs from the cure that i really dislike. It's completely meaningless in such a beautiful album as the head on the door.

    General CommentSimon and Robert have both said this is one of their favorite songs to perform, and it is just musically great. Sweetx3 basically hit the nail on the head; it's about loving someone with drug issues.

    General CommentI'm a bassist. I think this bassline is terrible. It sounds like some kid playing some goofy metal riff that everyone heckels on youtube. The only real bad song on this album, but nothing's perfect.

    General CommentDo you have to be a bassist to be able to recognize a bad bassline?

    General CommentITS VERY TYPICAL OF PEOPLE THAT THEY DONT HAVE ANY REMARKS ON THIS SONG
    I THINK ITS VERY VERY GROOVY AND I WOULD GUESS ONE OF SIMONS FAVORITES. IF I WERE A BASSIST I WOULD PLAY THIS ALL THE TIME.
    AND ITS A SCARY FUNNY TUNE AS WELL LYRICALLY.
