Moderate Rock

May day, every day, my day
Could've had a heart attack, my heart
We don't know anything, my heart
We all want something fair, my heart

Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey

Out of town, out of sight, is my heart
Queen of lies, today, my heart
One more on the phone, my heart
One more at the door of my heart

Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey

Mean heart
Cold heart
Cold heart
Cold heart
Cold heart
Cold heart
Cold heart
Cold heart

    My InterpretationThis song is not necessarily only about tourette's: It is using the outbursts associated with the condition to convey the feeling of loss of control associated with panic attacks. And the "cold heart, mean heart" bit is about how when in that state of mind you feel as if no-one understands, and absolutely no-one can give you relief. Even the pace of the song conveys racing thought patterns and despair.

    General CommentThere was a live version of this song performed as well, as part of the "from the muddy banks of the wishkah" set. Again, no officila lyrics were transcribed, but this is best interepretation anyway. Any advances on these lyrics would be much appreciated:-

    Down down, self defense, in my heart
    One more, out today, flown home
    Granted to your sense of sound, in my eyes
    Every day, I can change, my mind

    Hey (x3)

    Go, go, tell the tale, in my eyes
    Everything teddy sees, is all wrong
    Burning down half the town, and my house
    Entertaining sanity, for mine

    Hey (x3)

    Jonestown, such a frown, let's see yours
    Hanging round half the town, or go home
    When I'm down, all fall down, for me
    Hitch a train to sante fe, or walk

    Hey (x3)

    Take me home
    Mean horse (x3)

    General CommentOne small note, buzz baby. I was diagnosed with Tourette's in my childhood. While you know who they named Tourrete's Syndrome after, you should have known or specified otherwise that when you have Tourette's, you won't indefinately go around swearing your head off no matter what. That's just another stereotype last I checked, though some people with Tourette's will swear.
