"Dogs Of Lust" as written by and Johnson....
Here they come! the dogs of lust.
Out of my mind. into my life.
Somebody should be here to hold me
Somebody should be here to show me, show me!

When you're lustful. when you're lonely.
& the heat is rising slowly.

I got it blue. I got it bad.
I got the sweetest sadness I ever had.
As the hours pass before my eyes.
As the hours pass before me.

When you're lustful. when you're lonely.
& the heat is rising slowly.

I keep reaching up
But they drag me back down
Wherever I try to hide
I will always be found

When you're lustful. when you're lonely.
& the heat is rising slowly.

Rising rising rising slowly
Rising rising rising
Rising rising slowly.

    General CommentThis is one of the sexiest songs I've ever heard! Something about the combination of his low, growling voice, the rhythmic, humping beat of the music and the suggestive subject matter (feeling really horny and not having anyone to take it out on) really does it for me!

    General CommentMasturbation, barely controlled, no one else to help alleviate the lustful desires. The 3rd verse is an oddity to me: is that his penis reciting the lines or is he saying that he'd rather be masturbating because he can't perform with others? Yes, perhaps that's it. It would explain his sweetest sadness: wanting to get it on with someone other than himself but knowing that he couldn't even if given the chance.

    General CommentHot. I read the third verse as a continual personal struggle--like he wants to pull himself out of a life of lust and loneliness, but the "dogs of lust" (his id?) keep dragging him back down to his baser desires.

    General CommentThe last verse to me seems to describe the way he is so horny & with no outlet for it that he can't get his mind on any other topic. 'Wherever he tries to hide' i.e. mentally in his thoughts - his lustful yearnings will seek him out & get his mind back on emptying his sack. The wicked harmonica riff seems to convey his agitation & frustration at his curent plight.
