(spoken word sample)

Like Manson, like Manson
Something's fucked up here, it's just not right

(M. Sayyid)

I left my crib and slid like some barbeque ribs
Hit the bridge at 80, puffing a twig, listening to B.I.G.
The city lied on the side of my wig
I had to dig for the right street where my man lived
Pistol Peter Joker, kind of cat who'd sell a gat
if you swing cottage to a North Dakota broker
Had an addiction to coca
Owed cats ? Sosa
The night was buck like "Thriller"
I pulled out in front of his villa
He grinned like ?, with his girl, hopped in the middle
like "Yo! What the fuck?"
"Yo! What's up? What's up?"
"Let's hit this tit joint!"

Yo, yo, bet like Midler
Pulling on a Miller,
We excelled, dipped into the striptease
slipping trees until my eyes were holier than Swiss cheese
Feeling 6 for 6 screen like Bixby
I could barely drive, laughed like the first time I drank St. Ide's and
'til I see the sign "Live girls!"
Pulled up, locked the window "Yo! Your head's gonna swirl"
Fuck that, flip, wait 'til you see this shit

Punany punana-ny-ny

It's on like 'frigerators
Bouncers with alligators
Pit faces like hellraisers wearing
Cowboy hats patted me down with a frown and half slapped
Sizzler banging out the system
Not one busted female
The spot was more flash than Korean E-mails
Ass swinging, flopping, ringing more than retail
One went in front of my eyes
A couple of rounds went by
This chick put on a disguise
like Batman, gave a lapdance
Pete was talking to this other female in black pants,
Spandex, topless, swinging tits like reels on Ampex
I heard her say something like she was ambidex
He wanted to take it to the next
Disappear with two bottles of vex
Then I looked out the window, saw two cats come out a Lex
Nodded to the bouncer, then pointed to the back where they flexed
like "Fuck sex! Wait for a check!"
"Pete! Let's jet! Let's be out! I feel a threat!"
Then I heard a shriek
The two cats from the Lex were somehow delete from the scene
but the scream was definitely a female
Young, just out of her teens
The music came to a screech
"Yo! Where the fuck is Pete?"
Blood started sticking to my feet
Then I heard a stripper flap "She's been stabbed!"
I broke out like a bad rash, back to the ?
Pete was hiding behind garbage and shit
Talking about some cats
who had a full clip to me and that chick but missed

We rolled like "Fuck yo, I don't know!"
Dropped him off by the bridge
Came home to the lab, rolled a bag and took a drag
"Yo! Who popped the stripper?
Was it my man blowing two L's and flipped on some Jack the Ripper?
Or those Siamese cats in the Lex, iced like the Big Dipper?
You paint the picture"

"Yo! Who popped the stripper?
Was it my man blowing two L's and flipped on some Jack the Ripper?
Or those Siamese cats in the Lex, iced like the Big Dipper?
You paint the picture"

Who popped the stripper?

Love in a Vacuum
'Til Tuesday
Well, in my opinion this song is about being a young & maybe a little naive &/or introverted girl and finding yourself loving a man who is at first very charming, carefree & outgoing, and seems at first to be without limits, as in "There was a time you opened up every doorway you didn't mind if everything wasn't your way" then that man starts to gradually become more introverted & shows their more possessive/obsessive side to you as the relationship progresses, even while they keep up the appearance of being carefree & outgoing to everyone else, "Don't pull away that goes against what you told me I look in your eyes I realize what you've sold me is love in a vacuum" so you confront them about the way they're acting and of course they deny it, "I think you've changed but you insist that that's not true" quite possibly they are an addict of some sort, my guess would be cocaine, &/or showing very obsessive behavior towards you (early on in the video for this song we see the man hanging a picture up, it is a very large portrait of Aimee & it is prominently displayed in his/their apartment for the duration of the song), thus their "love in a vacuum", "You look so strange, so distant that you're hardly you Now I can see how you have been acting different You say it's me but I know that it isn't it's love in a vacuum" but still you are in love with them and don't want to leave them and you know that they are truly in love with you and they don't want you to leave them either, maybe they are convinced you can save them from themself, maybe they are so broken that the possibility of an overdose &/or suicide attempt is very real and you want to get through to them that their behavior not only dangerous but it is also just pissing you off and if they don't wise up they run the risk of loosing you, as in the lines "You will be lonely if you leave me alone", so you want to save them but can't get through to them due to the addiction &/or emotional problems they have, "Love in a vacuum and that's not enough love in a vacuum You will be lonely you'll be the only one who feels this way You will be lonely if you leave me alone You will be lonely you'll be the only one who feels this way it's just not enough" you want them to understand that the love they are giving you is not enough when it is filtered through the vacuum of their drug addiction &/or emotional impairment, "You will be lonely you'll be the only one who feels this way it's just not enough and just wait you will be lonely Love in a vacuum Love in a vacuum and that's not enough Love in a vacuum". 'Love In A Vacuum' for me is a hauntingly truthful acute argument on the loneliness of obsession and almost inevitable loss of love that follows people who are broken in some way or another; the obsessives, the coke heads, the drunks, addicts or the just-plain-old emotionally broken; a razor sharp, lyrically driven, deceptively poppy, yet ultimately-depressing-in-the-best-way song. Quintessential Aimee Mann.

This song is def a twin to "Unfair" (a song she has been quoted as saying is about falling in love with someone who is already in a relationship) so it is presumably about the same person. Given the references to buying an apartment and not being able to see her love interest "after tonight," it's most likely that she's moving away and she'll "wait a day to break the bad news" (i.e. notifying him that she's leaving once she's already gone). And, of course, the fact that she sees in him a fellow "idealist" and "dreamer" (terms commonly given to people with the INFP personality on the Myers–Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI)) portends that she'll always be left wondering if they would've been perfect together.
