"Stabbing A Star" as written by and Robert E. Jr. Pollard....
Well meet the maid, she's likable
A tonic for the masses
Rubbing her ferocious fur
Like rockets through molasses
Jump for joy, it's all the boy
The only one we need
Peaceful pet, he's all I get
So now you see how people are
Hey, look at me, I'm stabbing a star

Investigating innocence
About the shallow manhole
I get down methodically
Without regard to my soul
Raise my hand
And speak the truth
I'm starving for a fun fuck
I don't believe how people are
Look at me, I'm stabbing a star
Look at me, I'm stabbing a star
Look at me, I'm stabbing a star
Look at me, I'm stabbing a star

    General CommentIf I had only the chorus to go on, I'd assume it's a wry commentary on how one can become [in]famous by committing some horrible act like attacking Monica Seles.

    I can't make much sense of the remainder; too much "word salad." Not unusual for Pollard. Who I must also mention is truly astonishing in his seemingly everlasting and prolific ability to churn out both killer hooks and vivid imagery.

    Unmatched by anyone else, except perhaps Robyn Hitchcock (who ultimately became a far better musician). Any similarities, I'd assume, are from both owing a debt to Syd Barrett: albeit hardly in the same manner.
