    General CommentThis is a song that you'd listen to after just getting a heroin fix. Definitely. Gimme everything probably means that that's what his drug has become to him. When he gets the taste he doesn't need anything else.

    It's awesome, because if you turn this song up really loud you can hear someone (Damon?) breathing in and out before the music fades in. Also, his first line is "sound check" which is cool, I guess.

    General CommentJustine mixed liberally with heroin I think. That he's got drugs and love mixed up with each other is a little twisted, but then that's rock'n'roll for you. I think it was supposedly heroin that led to their break-up, so that figures.

    General Commentwhen it says "Whaka Whaka" sounds just like he says "What a wanker!"

    TranslationThis album is in most part, if not all, about Justine and her heroin use. Supposedly it changed her and partially influenced the the couple's breakup.

    A few corrections...
    "give me anything" is "give me insane"
    "Gimme me music gimme love" is "Gimme music and rhythm"
    "stick it in my brain" is "stick it in my vein(s)"s
    +a line or two is missing

    I really am in love with this album.
