Free from the itch of her sexual desire
I believed in the things that happened to me
So she mastered the art of treating decay
To the babbling madmen with nothing to say
So I'm lower-class tooth and she's iron fisted
I'm gunning for her money in the arms of my Cicero
Give us your guns and we'll give you nirvana
Walk away

Barbers and scullions and charioteers
Are the constant delight of these tooth racketeers
They live in the wake of a pretty young gigolo
Who lives in the arms of this Cicero
She's bully with his eyes and a lover's secret
I smile all the time just like an exile in Mantua
So give us your guns and we'll give you nirvana
Walk away

I'm king of the cafe cone
Chabanas is a sphynx who sells poison and guns
Not for holy reasons
Give us yoru guns and we'll give you nirvana
Walk away

    General CommentI believe this song is about a man who has finally broken away from a controlling relationship that started good, but went downhill. "Free from the itch of her sexual desire" he finally broke from her obsession with sex. "I believe in the things that happened to me" He believed in his love for her that was actually forced by her. "Im lower class and she's iron fisted" He has no say in her control with an 'iron fist' such as lower classmen and iron-fisted rulers are. "Shes a bully with his eyes and lover's secret" Meaning she loves him very much although she is 'bullying his innocence' by being controlling, sex driven, and abusive. "Give us your guns and we'll give you nirvana." Give up your control and we'll have happy relationship. Just my thoughts :D
