"I'm the one who can please you"
Ain't that what you said
You seemed so alone
I guess I was easily led

I showed you my love
But I guess that it went to your head
When you were hungry
I brought you your breakfast in bed

Even it up, even it up, even it up
Even it up, even it up, even it up
A good man pays his debt
But you ain't paid yours yet
Even it
Even it up

I took you down over the tracks when
You wanted some sin
I brought you satin and herbs from
The places I been
Now something tells me you're
Going to use me again
You think you can lay down the how and
The where and the when

Even it up, even it up, even it up
Even it up, even it up, even it up
I don't want to bum it all
But this ax she got to fall
Even it
Even it up

    She gave some guy oral sex "took him down", and he came "it went to his head". Then she showed him her private parts, and said to reciprocate with oral. She "brought him his breakfast in bed". If you listen to the background singers, in spots it even sounds like "eatin' it up" and "eatin' it out".

Shudder to Think
This song is timeless, and nearly 20 years after its creation, still possesses the mystique it did the first time i heard it ~1994. To me, at first blush, all those years ago, it had some kind of homo-erotic allure. The line "so that the others may do" tells of something which must be done for others to follow suit. It felt like like some kind of roxy-glam-pop invitation to sexual liberation. Upon further introspection I think the song may not have an intrinsic meaning, but simply represents a sort of "holding open the door" for people who otherwise might be affronted by this song/band's unusual style. I know, as a sort of armchair rock-historian, that there have been few bands so daring and so true to the sound that wanted to emerge from within, whether the creator wanted it or not. This band handled it with elegance and grace seldom, if ever, seen.

Alma Matters
Morrissey
The man has pseudo-friends who constantly criticize his actions. They moralize him, "teach" him and advise him to make a significant change in his life, because the way he is and what he does is not what they say it should be. They may find his life lame or immoral. They hold themselves up as role models. The man replies that he will make his own choices and decisions and he does not agree to unconditionally make himself under the influence of questionable quality advice. He justifies this by saying that there is always someone for whom he will be important, no matter what he does and no matter what he is. Although it is not said directly, I read it as meaning that he will always be important to himself in every way and he will always have his own support. "Everyone is different and maybe that's a good thing, but you exceeded that mark 1000 times" - I remember very well how sad the words I once heard (from my peers and it was in negative context) at school made me feel.
