It's ok, it's ok, ok relieve me
Pins in me, pins in me, in me you kill me
The lounge fly, the lounge fly, the fly you bring me
I think I'm free but the dogs they won't release me
Don't have a nickel or a dollar but you feed me
My bottle's empty but you always refuel me
I feel I'm sinking but you wont let me drown me
I wanna fuck, I wanna fuck, but do you need me

I can't give what I take away
And the other understands
She said she'd be my woman
She said she'd be my man
And I can't live this way
Please refill my soul

It's ok, its ok, ok believe me
Pins in me, pins in me, in me you kill me
The lounge fly, the lounge fly, the fly you bring me
I think I'm free but the dogs they won't release me
Don't have a nickel or a dollar but you feed me
My bottle's empty but you always refuel me
I feel I'm sinking but you wont let me drown me
I wanna fuck, I wanna fuck, but do you need me

I can't give what I take away
And the other understands
She said she'd be my woman
She said she'd be my man
And I can't live this way
Please refill my soul

She said she'd be my woman
She said she'd be my woman
Said she'd be my man

I can't give what I take away
And the other understands
She said she'd be my woman
She said she'd be my man
And I can't live this way
Please refill my soul

She said she'd be my woman
She said she'd be my man
She said she'd be my woman
She said she'd be my man
She said she'd be my woman
She said she'd be my man
She said she'd be my woman
She said she'd be my man
She said she'd be my woman
She said she'd be my man
She said she'd be my woman

    This is probably my favorite STP song. Guys, tell me how bad you're into a girl when you can bang her, and it STILL isn't enough?! Ya need to know she NEEDS you. Powerful stuff, and a difficult situation to be in, for sure. I love the guitar solos, altho I think I heard that Dean DeLeo didn't do both, can anyone verity this?

    i think hes refering to a girl that satisfies his every need, want,ect, emotionally, physically, spiritually. In the live version of this song he says.."she said she be my woman, she said she'd be my man" and adds" she said she be my momma, she said she'd be my dad" i think what he s gettin at here is this girl is suppose to to be the ultimate cure to his needs. he not only needs a lover, but also a good friend, a mother (nurturer) and a father figure that will check him when he fucks up. Im a guy, and i think whether we know it or not, we want our girlfirends to be more than our lovers, but our mothers as well. We need that loving, caring, conforting element in our lives that only women can provide. Face it..if we didnt have loving women, we would self destruct. our parents dont last forever, but the love that our lovers provide makes up for all of that. That love takes its place, and we can feel all the different kinds of love towards one person when we have a lover in our life.

    I heard this song was Weiland's apology to his wife at the current time for stealing money from her and spending it on booze and other shit, hence the title "Lounge Fly." Awesome song.

    The lyrics are weird (of course, it's Scott Weiland!). "She said she'd be my woman, she said she'd be my man."

    Huh?

    I know I'm probably a sick bastard but I've always thought this song is about a guy who raped and killed some girl. The interpretation I give is in the order of the song and this way it seems all out of whack, but it also seems to go along with the killers mind after the incident... "It's ok, it's ok, ok relieve me pins in me, pins in me, in me you kill me " It's like he feels remourse after it's all over... the memories keep pricking him and it is slowly eating away at him.

    "the lounge fly the lounge fly the fly you bring me I think I'm free but the dogs they won't release me " sounds like he may have been hiding close by to see what the police would find, but he gets scared that the police dogs will find him out.

    "I can't give what I take away and the other understands" He seems to be talking about life. He can take her life, but he can't give it to her. And she knows he wants to kill her.

    "she said she'd be my woman she said she'd be my man" It's like she was offering him anything (sexually) if he just wouldn't kill her.

    "I can't live this way please refill my soul" Again with the remourse

    "Don't have a nickel or a dollar but you feed me" As I've said, the guy is probably really depressed and full of remourse. One of the most common "side effects" of depression is loss of appetite. He can't seem to eat because of the thought of her.

    "my bottle's empty but you always refuel me I feel I'm sinking but you won't let me drown me" It sounds like he's trying to drown out the memories with booze, but no matter what she keeps coming back to his mind.

    "I wanna fuck, wanna fuck but do you need me?" This line just seems to go back to the initial act of rape... it's like it keeps replaying in his mind as he's trying to drink it all away.

    I may be wrong, but I believe Scott Weiland may have seen an article and just projected himself into the killers mind. Scott is a friggin genius.

    That is a very interesting iterpretation, kaisute.

    Yeah, kaisute, I agree on the interpretation...

    The line "the dogs, they won't release me" could be referencing "Plush", as that song has the same subject matter...

    I'm sure Scott didn't actually project himself as the madman portrayed in this song, he was just putting himself through the eyes of one...

    The whole relationship interpretation is sensible, but digging deeper shows that there may be a darker meaning than what's on the surface...

    I think Ciyaak Boy is on the right track. I think this song is about a girl that satisfies his every need. Unfortunately though, I think she is enabling him to pursue what he believes to be a destructive lifestyle (drinking and drugs) because she knows that is what he wants to do. It is sort of a catch 22 because he has found the perfect girl that satisfies his needs, but she is slowing killing him by enabling his lifestyle.

    Then in the chorus

    “I wanna fuck, wanna fuck, but do you need me?”

    I think he is talking about how the girl has actually grown dependent on satisfying his needs. So they are dependent on each other, as many relationships are, and it is killing him. This is how I perceive the song.

Classic love story true to his western tx roots. One of my favorites as a story, but I think there are alot of songs that are amazing not even listed on this site. I guess I should figure out how to add them, because I have about 8 REK cd's.

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.

Both as a standalone and as part of the DSOTS album, you can take this lyric as read. As a matter of public record, Jourgensen's drug intake was legendary even in the 1980s. By the late 90s, in his own words, he was grappling with massive addiction issues and had lost almost everything: friends, spouse, money and had nearly died more than once. "Dark Side of the Spoon" is a both funny & sad title for an album made by a musical genius who was losing the plot; and this song is a message to his fans & friends saying he knows it. It's painful to listen to so I'm glad the "Keith Richards of industrial metals" wised up and cleaned up. Well done sir.

Overall about difficult moments of disappointment and vulnerability. Having hope and longing, while remaining optimistic for the future. Encourages the belief that with each new morning there is a chance for things to improve. The chorus offers a glimmer of optimism and a chance at a resolution and redemption in the future. Captures the rollercoaster of emotions of feeling lost while loving someone who is not there for you, feeling let down and abandoned while waiting for a lover. Lost with no direction, "Now I'm up in the air with the rain in my hair, Nowhere to go, I can go anywhere" The bridge shows signs of longing and a plea for companionship. The Lyrics express a desire for authentic connection and the importance of Loving someone just as they are. "Just in passing, I'm not asking. That you be anyone but you”
