"Pillowhead" as written by Ken Andrews and Greg Edwards....
I sprained my will
Lying in bed.
Counting the pores across my skin.
I'm so ashamed
To love no one
My ego's bent and my pride's undone.

I'll spend the night
With my pillowhead girl
We never fight or say a word.
I'll spend my life
With my pillowhead girl
She is the lovely faceless queen.

I gave up hope
In finding you.
I've got a friend I've grown used to
I'm so ashamed
To love no one
My ego's bent and my pride's undone.

I'll spend the night
With my pillowhead girl
We never fight or say a word.
I'll spend my life
With my pillowhead girl
She is the lovely faceless queen.

I'll spend the night, wasting away

    General Commenti think this song means that he has nobody, and night after night the only thing he holds is his pillow. pretty sad, but good song

    General Commenti think he's talking about his own thoughts, he has fallen in love with everything he wishes his life was. he dreams about these things at night and only when he is alone can really experience them, but it upsets him because none of it is real. i've had the same things happen to me in my life. its a problem with an overactive imagination. at least thats what it means to me.

    General CommentI think the masturbation theory is fairly obvious. However, for myself, I prefer to take them to mean something a little different. I like to think he loves no one by choice, and is ashamed of the fact that he does not care.

    That's how I am. It bothers me that nothing bothers me.

    General Commentthis song always reminds me of these pillows they used to sell like ten years ago. they were body pillows for kids, and they had yarn hair and faces and like arms and clothes painted on.. i cant find anything anywhere about them ever having existed, but i swear they did... this song just makes me think so much of them...
    great song, by the way

    My InterpretationI think he is talking about having to touch himself because he has no girl and being ok with it because he doesn't have to deal with all the BS of having a girl.

    General CommentYou guys are obviously right. Ive heard theories however that some of the lyrics actually refer to masturbation. hes counting the pores accross his skin. the last line is that his prides undone (pop!) and there are people out there who hump their pillow to masturbate. Plus hes SO ashamed. one might be pissed they dont have a love in their life, but most people dont. hes ashamed cuz he spanks it! go failure.
