Hey chew toy head you're swollen
and disfigured
If I strech out your face do you feel
any bigger
If I piss in your eyes will you
will you see
That you think that you are
so much better than me

Why are my lips so
Why are my are my
Why are my lips so swollen

Hey chew toy head you're broken
and disfigured
Circus sideshow freak grows
bigger and bigger
if I piss in your mouth will you
taste in me
Or do you still think you are
so much bigger than me

Why are my lips so
Why are my are my
Why are my lips so swollen

Hey chew toy head we're spoiled
and disfigured
I pissed in my pants and I don't
feel any bigger
I let out the freak
for all to see
And she won't let you think that you're
so much better than me

Why are my lips so
Why are my are my
Why are my lips so swollen shut shut shut

    Okay, perhaps I am way off here - but I always assumned that this song was about her performing oral sex on a boyfriend. She really does not want to do it, but it makes him feel like a 'big man' ("Or do you still think you are so much bigger than me?")

    Also, I think that the lines - "I let out the freak for all to see And she won't let you think that you're so much better than me"

    • is her saying that she has found a girl (labelled a ‘freak’ by society for being a lesbian), who treats her with respect and who gives her pleasure (instead of her having to always give the man pleasure and get none in return.)

    Maybe I'm all wrong, but it's just that several phrases really make me think the lyrics are of a rather sexual nature - "chew toy head", "stretch out your face", "Circus sideshow freak grows bigger and bigger" and the ‘swollen lips’.

    I dont know the meaning of the song, somehow makes me feel that, if I'm trying to prove to someone who thinks they are better than me, I am trying to tell them, you know, your not better than me, and i'll prove it to u. it makes me think of people i hate. eg, some girl who has hated me for years because im gothic and she isn't. usuall stuff. but i hate her alot, n this song makes me wanna smack her n jus tell her how much i hate her n just let her know that she isn't any better than me and to stop thinking that. thas wut it means to me, but i dunno the actual meaning. anyway, this is a kick ass song. and I can tell by the sound of jessikas voice that she is pissed off at summat. its a really co0l song, (like most of the songs by jack off jill) hehe! -_~¤~Mø®ßîз·Åñgë|~¤~_

    I think that this song portrays the sense of egotism and how people's heads can swell up soo much that they think they're bigger and better then the whole world that surrounds them and there's always that one person who tries to make them see that they're really not that great at all....that's just what i think... this is a really kick ass song, and i really like Jack Off Jill.

    This song is all about how a girl,most likely Jessicka is feeling that someone thinks they are so much better then her and shes saying all these things,and asking do you still think you are so much better then me,so basically its about someone thinking there better then her when shes knows for a fact that there not.

    this song always reminds me of when uve been crying so hard, because my lips always feel swollen after. its like what everyone else has says its about, but jessicka cant express this to the person (why are my lips so swollen shut), because they have sum sorta power over her (i let u think that u r so much better than me) i think its like, about someone in her childhood, like a parent, because i always think of 'chew toy head' as a toy (obv) and then u have the pissed in my pants bit. it actually makes me think of my relationship with my mum cuz she always makes me cry

Mountain Song
Jane's Addiction
Jane's Addiction vocalist Perry Farrell gives Adam Reader some heartfelt insight into Jane’s Addiction's hard rock manifesto "Mountain Song", which was the second single from their revolutionary album Nothing's Shocking. Mountain song was first recorded in 1986 and appeared on the soundtrack to the film Dudes starring Jon Cryer. The version on Nothing's Shocking was re-recorded in 1988. "'Mountain Song' was actually about... I hate to say it but... drugs. Climbing this mountain and getting as high as you can, and then coming down that mountain," reveals Farrell. "What it feels to descend from the mountain top... not easy at all. The ascension is tough but exhilarating. Getting down is... it's a real bummer. Drugs is not for everybody obviously. For me, I wanted to experience the heights, and the lows come along with it." "There's a part - 'Cash in now honey, cash in Miss Smith.' Miss Smith is my Mother; our last name was Smith. Cashing in when she cashed in her life. So... she decided that, to her... at that time, she was desperate. Life wasn't worth it for her, that was her opinion. Some people think, never take your life, and some people find that their life isn't worth living. She was in love with my Dad, and my Dad was not faithful to her, and it broke her heart. She was very desperate and she did something that I know she regrets."

No Surprises
Radiohead
Same ideas expressed in Fitter, Happier are expressed in this song. We're told to strive for some sort of ideal life, which includes getting a good job, being kind to everyone, finding a partner, getting married, having a couple kids, living in a quiet neighborhood in a nice big house, etc. But in Fitter, Happier the narrator(?) realizes that it's incredibly robotic to live this life. People are being used by those in power "like a pig in a cage on antibiotics"--being pacified with things like new phones and cool gadgets and houses while being sucked dry. On No Surprises, the narrator is realizing how this life is killing him slowly. In the video, his helmet is slowly filling up with water, drowning him. But he's so complacent with it. This is a good summary of the song. This boring, "perfect" life foisted upon us by some higher powers (not spiritual, but political, economic, etc. politicians and businessmen, perhaps) is not the way to live. But there is seemingly no way out but death. He'd rather die peacefully right now than live in this cage. While our lives are often shielded, we're in our own protective bubbles, or protective helmets like the one Thom wears, if we look a little harder we can see all the corruption, lies, manipulation, etc. that is going on in the world, often run by huge yet nearly invisible organizations, corporations, and 'leaders'. It's a very hopeless song because it reflects real life.

Plastic Bag
Ed Sheeran
“Plastic Bag” is a song about searching for an escape from personal problems and hoping to find it in the lively atmosphere of a Saturday night party. Ed Sheeran tells the story of his friend and the myriad of troubles he is going through. Unable to find any solutions, this friend seeks a last resort in a party and the vanity that comes with it. “I overthink and have trouble sleepin’ / All purpose gone and don’t have a reason / And there’s no doctor to stop this bleedin’ / So I left home and jumped in the deep end,” Ed Sheeran sings in verse one. He continues by adding that this person is feeling the weight of having disappointed his father and doesn’t have any friends to rely on in this difficult moment. In the second verse, Ed sings about the role of grief in his friend’s plight and his dwindling faith in prayer. “Saturday night is givin’ me a reason to rely on the strobe lights / The lifeline of a promise in a shot glass, and I’ll take that / If you’re givin’ out love from a plastic bag,” Ed sings on the chorus, as his friend turns to new vices in hopes of feeling better.
