"Three Nights" as written by and Gregory Regis Ginn Henry Lawrence Garfield....
Tonight I sit right down in my room
Going over it and over it again and again
Something's got a hold of me
And I just can't seem to shake myself loose

Let me go Let me go I'm surely breaking up
Tonight I'm gonna make that body pay
Tonight I'm gonna make that body scream
Tonight I'm gonna drop to my knees

I want to make you fell like you make me feel
I want to make you fell like you make me feel
I want to make you fell like you make me feel
There's a lover in my heart Killer in my hands

Whiskey on my breath Someone handed me a ladder
And for the longest time I've been climbin' - to the bottom of it
Someone reached out and gave me their hand
And for the longest time

I've been trying to dislodge my teeth from it
My life is a piece of a shit that got caught in my show
And I've been grinding that stink into the dirt
For a long time now, now, now

I want to make you feel like you make me feel
I want to make you fell like you make me feel
I want to make you fell like you make me feel
I think you stuck my friends with knives

Dragged him out so he could die
One in his heart and three in each side - knives
Go ahead
Go ahead

Go ahead and stick me
Stick me

    General CommentThis or Wound Up are by far my favorite Black Flag songs.

    one times a friend of mine told me heavier music (I guess punk and metal?) is for showcasing your prowess with your instrument but doesn't have very much emotion or thought put into it. I thought of this song and told her to promptly shut the fuck up.

    General CommentIt seems like it's from the point of view of someone who is suicidal or manic, and ready to kill someone.

    Like, they've just lost it entirely and snapped. You can hear it in the way Henry snarls out the lyrics like he's been up for a week straight and paranoia has made him lose control.

    My InterpretationJust one interpretation but the opening lines and chorus make me think it could be about a crazy obsessive guy with an unrequited crush. He's jacking off in his bed and wishing that she returned his feelings, and he has murderous impulses not only toward her but for the guy she chose instead of him.
