You're movin' through rough waters, motel boy, and swimming in your sleep...
How could I be so blind, mis-sighted, not to see there's something wounded deep?
Oh, anyone could scratch your surface now, it's all amphetamine...
You're blasting yourself into the present, learn some vast indignity, you say that...

You say that you hate it, you want to re-create it...
I've been around, I've been your lover, I let it go Kill Devil Hill...
You're comin' onto something so fast, so numb that you can't even feel...

You're drinking raw adrenal baby, you dose your dose, add on...
You're eating cartilage, shark-eyes, shark-heart,
all cramps and tense, and boy your blood is running cold...
Listen! This is now, this is here, this is me, this is what I wanted you to see...
That was then, was that, that is gone, this is past,
you cast yourself, cast, passed by, thrown down fast...

You so say... you say that you hate it, you want to recreate it...
I've played this round, I've played your lover, I've played it out to the hilt, wow...
You're comin' on with something so fast, so numb that you can't even feel...

You love it, you hate it, you want to re-create it...
Now, this is here, this is me, this is what I wanted you to see...
That was then, was that, that is gone, that is what I wanted you to feel...

You love it, you hate it, you spit it out the bitter pill, wow...
I've been around, I've been your lover, I let it go Kill Devil Hill...
You're comin' onto something so fast, so numb that you can't even feel, wow...
I've played this round, I've played your lover, I've played it out to the hilt, wow...
You're comin' on with something so fast, so numb that you can't even feel...
You played around, you played me lover, I let it go Kill Devil Hill...
You're moving so hard, so fast, so numb that you can't even feel...


Qui si cita "Kill Devil Hill" che è un posto della North Carolina dove nei primi anni del 1900 i fratelli Wright provarono a far volare i primi prototipi di aeroplano e riuscirono per la prima volta a rimanere in volo per alcuni istanti. La frase "you're eating cartilage, shark-eyes, shark-heart" è riferita alle "shark cartilage pills" (cartilagini di squalo...) che servono per rinvigorire il cuore ed il metabolismo. Anche la frase "boy, your blood is running cold" è riferita all'essere in simbiosi con lo squalo che si è ingeriti in quanto lo squalo è un animale a sangue freddo. Non si sa però a chi è dedicata questa canzone, dai testi sembrerebbe qualcuno con problemi di droga...
