  • Lyrics
  • This song about teenage angst finds Brian Molko singing; "Borderline bipolar. Forever biting your nuts." He explained to NME June 8, 2013 that the lyric "is him acknowledging that I'm an irritating little s--t at times" He added; "Winding people up the wrong way just seems to be part of my nature, even if isn't intentional. It's something that I do without trying. It's my cross to bear but I'm learning to live with it."
