"Shiver and Shake" as written by Robert James Smith, Simon Gallup, Porl Thompson, Laurence Andrew Tolhurst and Boris Williams....
You're just a waste of time
You're just a babbling face
You're just three sick holes that run like sores

You're a fucking waste
You're like a slug on the girl
Oh you're useless and ugly
And useless and ugly
And I shiver and shake

When I think of how you make me hate
I want to smash you to pieces
I want to smash you up and screaming
I want to smash you helpless
Down on the floor
Smash you until you're not here anymore

And I shiver and shake
Shiver and shake

    General CommentThat's what Robert Smith has said in a few interviews, but somehow I doubt it.

    For one thing, Lol was still a member of the band at this stage. Would he have really played on a song that was basically attacking him?

    Also, Robert Smith seems to have been really negative towards Tolhurst in interviews since the court case (understandably). I wonder if that is an example of this?

    Perhaps there's a few different interpretations of the song... whenever I listen to it, I can't help but feel it's about self-loathing... but, really that's just a possible interpretation of the song.

    General CommentAccording to Wikipedia, kid pirate is right. Lol was abusing alcohol and drugs, and by the time Disintegration came out he wasn't contributing anything anymore.
