Dig me out
Dig me in
Out of this mess
Baby, out my head
What do you want?
What do you know?
One to get started
Three till we go

Dig me out
Dig me in
Out of this mess
Baby, out of my head
Dig me out
Dig me in
Out of my body
Out of my skin

You got me
For now
I'm here
For now

What do you want?
What do you know?
Do you get nervous
Making me go?
Get into your sores
Get into your things
Do you get nervous
Watching me bleed?

Dig me out
Dig me in
Out of this mess
Baby, out of my head
Dig me out
Dig me in
Out of my body
Out of my skin

I wear your rings and sores
In me, in me, it shows

You got me
For now
I'm here
For now

I wear your rings and sores
In me, in me, it shows

Oh, God, let me in
There's nowhere else to go
Oh, God, let me in
And let me go, go, go, go

Dig me out
Dig me in
Out of this mess
Baby, out of my head
Dig me out
Dig me in
Out of my body
Out of my skin

    My InterpretationIn Carrie's autobiography she says that most of Corin's lyrics on this album were either about their breakup (Corin and Carrie had previously been romantically involved) or about Corin's new relationship with Lance Bangs, who she would go on to marry.

    So I think this is about wanting Lance to dig her out of the emotional turmoil caused by Carrie breaking up with her.

    My InterpretationIt's a song that can be seen on a couple of levels. One level has a woman not wanting to have sex with her lover, but since he gets violent when she says no, she has no choice but to give into him. He is abusive to her, but she thinks she can't get out of it.

    General Commentbikini kill was not the first band of the riot grrl movement, if that's what you're trying to say. corin had heavens to betsy during that time, and carrie had excuse 17, so they were playing their part. (also, kathleen is not femme. she's straight.)

    General CommentX-Ray Spex and The Slits both pre-dated the riot grrrrrrrrrls by a good 15 years or so.
