Interlude with Ludes

Album: Them Crooked Vultures (2009)
  • "Lude" is a slang term for quaaludes, a drug that heightens sensitivity and causes feelings of relaxation as well as euphoria, making it a popular drug for sexual activity. While this song makes no explicit reference to the drug it does mention LSD, acid, poison and chemicals. This song appears to be about a man stalking a woman or vice versa. Lyrics like, "If you want me I'm yours" and "If you don't want me/I'm trained... licensed and armed to the teeth" seem to suggest that the narrator will not take no for an answer from his object of obsession, and will use violence if necessary. >>
