(what do your nipples look like)

wherever i go

i take a little piece of you

i collect

i reject

photographs i took of you

well times i passed through

so many faces

so many places

i have got to have a memory

i have never been there

i have never had you

i can't remember

give me your reminder

i collect

i reject

memorabilia

(now girl..only it's flavor..bow down here)

keychains and snowstorms

the taste of your sweat

the look in your eye

i have been inside you

i know what it feels like

(wet as it is..the whiter the honey)

i collect

i reject

memorabilia

(goodies come in here all day)

give me your reminder

i can't remember

i collect

i reject

memorabilia

    General Commentsweetnspicy656, your a moron.
    The lyrics posted here are wrong.
    This song is like - about him being with a woman, having relations with her, but then moving on to someone else. As if he goes around to all these places and hooks up with women. But that's only on the outside of this song. The lyrics might mean something more, but I don't know.

    This song is a cover of the Soft Cell song, fyi.

    General CommentWow, what a crazy, long assed song. Great nevertheless. Song is self-explanitory. A Downward Spiral B-side. I wonder where this song would have fit...

    General Commentthe part that really gets me:
    "keychains and snowstorms
    the taste of your sweat
    the look in your eye
    i have been inside you
    i know what it feels like"
    i love it, and how he keeps repeating "i have been inside you" this song is awesome..

    General CommentI think this song is about a relationship he had with a woman, that ended, and he's trying to remember it. Maybe drugs or addiction had a lot to do with him not remembering their relationship, so all he has to remind himself of her are the photographs he took.

    'well times i passed through
    so many faces
    so many places
    i have got to have a memory
    i have never been there
    i have never had you'
    - He seeing flashbacks of past events that occured during his addiction, and don't believe they actually occured, and he rejects those thoughts.

    'keychains and snowstorms
    the taste of your sweat
    the look in your eye
    i have been inside you
    i know what it feels like
    i collect
    i reject'

    At this point he is provided with memorabilia that reminds him of how it felt. Maybe he's meeting the woman that he was once with for the first time since then and her look, the taste of her sweat, they bring back those feelings again. He rejects them so that he won't go back to that point, but he can't let them go.
