Gimme gimme gimme
I need some more
Gimme gimme gimme
Don't ask what for

Sitting here, I'm a loaded gun
Waiting to go off
I've got nothing to do
But shoot my mouth off

Gimme gimme gimme
I need some more
Gimme gimme gimme
Don't ask what for

You know I'm going to go out
Get something for my head
If I keep on doing this
I'm going to end up dead

Gimme gimme gimme
I need some more
Gimme gimme gimme
Don't ask what for

I know the world's got problems
I've got problems of my own
Not the kind that can't be solved
With an atom bomb

Gimme gimme gimme
I need some more
Gimme gimme gimme
Don't ask what for

    General CommentThis song definatly sounds like it's about addiction

    "YOU KNOW I'M GONNA GO OUT
    GET SOMETHING FOR MY HEAD
    IF I KEEP ON DOING THIS
    I'M GONNA END UP DEAD"

    General CommentMy version is slightly different than this.
    "I need some more" is replaced with "Gimme some whore" for the last verse.
    And this song strikes me sort of like its a song about junkies, from a junkies perspective.

    General CommentYou're way off on the meaning of this song -- it's just that he's bored out of his mind and it's been building and building until he just wants someone to give him a drug... any kind of drug so he doesn't go insane.

    General CommentIt's a shame that capitals were used.

    This song is about someone who wants everything.
