In the arms of another who doesn't mean anything to you
There's nothing much to discover
Does he shake, does he shiver as he sidles up to you
Like I did in my time?

As you wake does he smother you in kisses long and true?
Does he even think to bother?
And at night under covers as he's sliding into you
Does it set your sweat on fire?

Want you so bad I can taste it
But you're nowhere to be found
I'll take a drug to replace it
Or put me in the ground

In the arms of another who doesn't mean anything to you
Do you lose yourself in wonder?
If I could, I would hover while he's making love to you
Make it rain as I cry

Want you so bad I can taste it
But you're nowhere to be found
Now I'll take a drug to replace it
Or put me in the ground

Want you so bad I can taste it
But you're nowhere to be found
Now I'll take a drug to replace it
Or put me in the ground

Put me in the ground
Put me in the ground
Put me in the ground

    My InterpretationThe protagonist has lost his loved one to another person and he can't live with this fact. He wonders about their sex life and that's basically the only thing that he can think about. So that says he wasn't in a committed relationship with his ex and it was solely about desire.

    And this song is testimony to: 'Love Fails when the lovers don’t evolve beyond desire.' But what makes the song so sad is that the protagonist has lost his way. He doesn't care if he lives or dies: 'I'll take a drug to replace it Or put me in the ground'. The character clearly needs help, but his obsessive tendencies 'Want you so bad I can taste it' get in his way to be able to get help.
