"Suck (Pigface cover)" as written by Martin Clive Atkins, Paul G. Barker, William Fredrick Rieflin and Michael Trent Reznor....
There is no god up in the sky tonight
No sign of heaven anywhere in sight
All that was true is left behind
Once I could see now I am blind
Don't want your dreams you try to sell
This disease I give to myself
How does it feel?
How does it feel?
She makes it sweeter than the sun
I get too tight I come undone
I bow my head to confess
The temple walls are made of flesh
Runs up my arms 'til I'm on track
Itches my skin right off of my back
I'll heal your wounds
I'll set you free
I'm Jesus Christ on Ecstasy
How does it feel?
How does it feel?
I am so dirty on the inside
I am so dirty on the inside
I am so dirty on the inside
I am so dirty on the inside
How does it feel?
How does it feel?
Suck
Suck
Suck
Suck
A thousand lips a thousand tongues
A thousand throats a thousand lungs
A thousand ways to make it true
I want to do terrible things to you

    General CommentI also think it's about drugs .
    The first paragraph it's showing how bad he feels at that particular time , he doesn't want the dreams that god is trying to sell him and he prefers to give himself a disease (drugs).
    The second paragraph just tells us how it feels to get high .
    Anyway , i can't figure out the "A thousand lips ...." part ....

    General CommentLove when he says "I want to do terrible things to you."
    I think it's about heroin simply because my friend talks like that about being high....

    General Commentafter thinking about it for a while and listening to the song a bunch of more times i sort of think it's more about religion and shit. yeah, i like his religious sarcasm also, and i appreciate it because i was sort of raised to be catholic and then i developed an attitude similar to his. everything i just said was pointless, yet i will continue to say more pointless things. i hate how it is assumed that the reason one is opposed to religions is beauce they are uneducated in the area. i have gone to catholic school for most of my life and i have and am taking a course in which i learn about many different religions, but i passionately oppose all religions. i am not corrupt and i do have morals. i am fogiving of others and i am at peace with myself. i do not need religion. there is not such thing as god.

    General CommentThis song is about recieving head (suck, dirty on the inside, how does it feel?, etc.) while high off of Heroin (runs up my arms till I'm on track, itches my skin right off my back,etc.) in a church (blah blah)

    HOW DOES IT FEEL?!?!? symbolizes two of Trent's favorite things: Sexual contact (SHES GONNA SUCK HIM LIKE AN ANIMALLLL) and shooting up heroin (Because the needle tore a hole)

    My InterpretationSo, this is just the way I interpret this song (by the way, I adore this song, because of both the lyrics and just the instrumental part): the song is about a guy who is on drugs -here I assume perhaps heroin because it 'itches the skin right off my back'- giving head to a girl. He sees the girl as being pure and good, like a temple ('the temple walls are made of flesh' & 'she makes it sweeter than the sun'). He sees himself as a godlike figure because he is making her feel so amazing and he himself feels amazing, 'I'm Jesus Christ on ecstasy'. But at the same time, he feels wrong and dirty -'I'm so dirty', etc- because he is the one on drugs and giving head, while she is just receiving. I see it as him thinking only he is doing something "bad". He knows people think that drugs (and maybe even what he is doing in general) are wrong 'the disease I give myself' and says that he has chosen to forsake help 'there is no god'\'no sign of heaven', and that he doesn't want anyone to comfort him 'don't want the dreams you try to sell'.

    This song represents sort of a downward spiral to me, where you don't want any help and you are just running through life blindly and you make all sorts of bad decisions, because at the moment you just don't care. You're just on a wild, out of control search for pleasure because you are running away from pain. Nothing matters but the ecstasy of the moment. At least, this song reminds me of the times in my life that were like that.
    I know that was kinda an intense dissection of the song, but I really love it so I couldn't help myself. But that's just me and my thoughts.
    -Peace ;)

    General CommentThis song is about heroin. runs up my arms 'til i'm on track is a dead giveaway. Trackmarks. itches my skin right off my back is also a giveaway, heroin makes you itch depending what it's cut with. How does it feel? Like jesus christ on ecstasy. But then later, dirty on the inside.

    The original version of this song was on the Pigface album Gub. Pigface is the band of Martin Atkins whihc is why he is listed in the writing credits. Trent then covered it (better than the original in my opinion).
