Henry Rollins performs this song from the perspective of a guy with a great deal of anger who preys on vulnerable women. He tells them exactly what they want to hear and gains their trust, but in the end he will hurt them, because he's a liar. Rollins delivers the verses in his spoken-word style, then explodes into the chorus, displaying the different personalities of the character.
This became the best-known song from the Rollins Band. It gained success after appearing on the MTV show Beavis and Butthead and going into moderate rotation on MTV. (thanks, Austin - Smallsville, New England)
