"Pig" as written by and Mark Linkous....
P-ig, oh, p-ig

Why don't you sing me that
Pretty lullaby
Then when you're singing great
Pack it all up

I want to new face right now
And I want it bad
I want to new body that's strong
I'm a butchered cow

I want to try and fly
I want to try and die
I want to be a pig
I want to fuck a car

I want to new face right now
And I want it bad
I want to new body that's strong
I'm a butchered cow

I want to be a stupid and shallow mutherfucker now
I want to be a tough skinned bitch but I don't know how
I want to be a shiny new baby with a spongy brain
I want to be a horse full of fire what will never reign

    General CommentI'm pretty sure the last line is "I wanna be a horse full of fire that'll never tame."
    Then again, I could be wrong. Love this song. Sparklehorse fuckin rocks.

    General Commenti just thought it was a comment on how dependent on material things the world has become.
    Examples:

    "I wanna new face right now and I want it bad
    I wanna new body that's strong
    I'm a butchered cow "

    General CommentIt's about wanting to become new and reborn again.

    I wanna try and fly
    I wanna try and die
    I wanna be a pig
    I wanna fuck a car

    All the things he would do if he had a fresh soul.

    Amazing song.

    Song MeaningWhile on tour with Radiohead, Mark Linkous overdosed, fell unconscious and toppled backwards onto his legs, cutting of the blood supply for a good few hours.
    Chemical build ups in his legs in those few hours meant that he was unable to stand for several months and had difficulty walking for the rest of his life. This is a song about wishing his body still worked as it should.
