I want to be in a motercycle gang - gangreen and mean and fucked up all the time. Picture me on the back of a Harley - leather-clad and bad and driving fifty-five. I want to see things I'll never get to see - foreign bronze, klingons, naked girls with purple eyes. Yeah, look at me - sad and low and lonely - dead-end job, a slob, and fucked up all the time. I'm going nowhere. I'd rather go somewhere instead. I'm gonna blow a hole through the back of my head. Don't cry when I say good-bye.

    My InterpretationYeah, It's pretty much about some guy who works in a dead end job who wants out of his life. He wishes he could be something else, but he can't. He just so sick of life so decides he's going to kill himself.

    I guess this is the perfect song for those people who are depressed and hate their lives. Like me. :D

    General Commenti love the beginning of this song.. although my favorite line is 'naked girls with purple eyes' kind of that mystery of life that we all dream of but know isnt entirely real.. anyway, its a damn good song.

    General CommentI think it's about being unhappy with how things are in your life and wanting to leave.

    General Commenti use to love this song because its hilarious but then i thought about it. the repetiition of "and fucked up all the time" - in comparision to being in a motorcycle gang and his current life, show that there is no escape from this despair. the life he wants is worthless. the life he wants he has.

    General CommentThelonehellion: wow, that's a really interesting interpretation of the song. I never thought of it that way. I always thought of it more as someone who wants to escape...but I definitely like your interpretation more.

    I think it may be a bit of both.

    Great song, which I can relate to strongly.

    General Commenti think that it's about wanting to lead a more exciting life. his life is dull, and everything is the same every day, and he can't really change it. the motorcycle gang represents something completely different, and not by society's standards(lawyer, doctor, and all those other "successful" jobs). and i think that "and fucked up all the time" refers to his emotional status.

    indeed it is a great song. i hate myself are great, and very original.
