amphetamine annie-dog
has her leash and a face
her velvet spleen, her shackle spine
her diamond curse, it comes with mine

a vessel she for violent I
confession arms awake
mine mine, your were always mine
possessed by my taste

and below the angel dog
combs her hair and sings her psalms
the bombs go off, she doesn't notice
it all goes wrong, she sets things tragic
she is venus, she is mars
she's electric, and the struggle of

upon her face we leave no trace
but in her stomach mercury aged
she holds the blood, she carves the knives
she digs the wires in our babies

amphetamine annie-dog
pulls her trash and her stories
from place to place and bed to bed
gives of herself and the magnet head
another floor, another ceiling
counting stars with double meanings

is it wrong to be swallowed whole
to disappear in her
to give to her the priceless peace
of giving up control

we tumble out into the streets
and annie-dog, she drags her leash
pretty face, ugly mouth
bitter bred and so released

and by the no and in the yes
annie goes if you couldn't guess
a simple man, a sycophant
her elephant with the laughing cough
she wants clean sheets and fresh flowers
her dental shots and the hong kong glue

amphetamine annie-dog
has her leash and a face

I thought it was about some coke/meth-addict prostitute that gave him head once, and then did some other guy and gave herself an abortion or something.:think:



edit:
"'Annie-Dog' was one of the first songs where I just sort of wrote a bunch of stuff about this archetype of a woman who [makes love] for power. The ramble of it came out and made it into the song, and that was what made the songs." -BC

As to whether it's poetry or bullshit, that's like comparing appels to oranjes.

these are the most coherent verses and pretty great at that. "annie" reminds me of marla from fight club or something

I always think of the stockholm syndrome when listening to that song.

Awesome song. Read somewhere that its about Courtney Love. Makes some sense. Then again, I read somewhere that Toto were a good band so I guess we can't believe everything we read.
Does anyone think anything of Gish or Siamese were about her directly?

I hate the way he sings on that track for the album. But the song is good and the lyrics are pretty interesting.

I like this song. It's actually one of my favourites from Adore. Except the "
and by the no and in the yes" which sounds like "
and by the no and in the ass", which just makes me think of anal rape.

When I first heard this song I really hated it. I always skipped it.

But after a while it became one of my favorites.

ive hated this song and it's mostly got to do with how awful it sounds

plus the "amphetamine" line at the start always sounded like "infernal me"

"how awful it sounds"? annie dog is just a few simple piano chords and a beat. how that could conceivably offend anyone's ears is beyond me.

Yeah. I thought the "it sounds awful" complaint was limited to Zeitgeist.
