She said "I'll throw myself away, They're just photos after all" I can't make you hang around. I can't wash you off my skin. Outside the frame, is what we're leaving out You won't remember anyway I can go with the flow But don't say it doesn't matter anymore I can go with the flow Do you believe it in your head? It's so safe to play along Little soldiers in a row Falling in and out of love With something sweet to throw away. But I want something good to die for To make it beautiful to live. I want a new mistake, lose is more than hesitate. Do you believe it in your head? I can go with the flow But don't say it doesn't matter anymore I can go with the flow Do you believe it in your head?

Serhat from Turkeydefinitely about sex and "sin". "Sin" may mean being free... "I want a new mistake, lose is more than hesitate" is the main idea I feel from this song. this made me think a lot, and ended up with doing what I want after all. I really think less about what people think, life is short and we are just spirits disapperaing.
Lee from Dallas, TxIf you see the music video, you notice the constant theme of Red, and Sex. I think that translate's to loving a girl any time of the month. And "Go with the Flow", it makes sense (I think that's one of the biggest meaning's of this song).
Ben from Scowtown, Id"It's so safe to play along-Little soldiers in a row-Falling in and out of love-Something sweet to throw away.-I want something good to die for-To make it beautiful to live.-I want a new mistake, lose is more than hesitate." I interpret this as commentary on the way society has become so pitiful. No one is actually living, but just floating along in this material world that has been created by external influences rather than being an individual and living through one's self. The last part talking "lose is more than hesitate" is to me a way of saying you aren't living if you're not willing to take a risk.
Charl from Amsterdam, NetherlandsI think its about this girl whos leaving him alone, beacause she wasnt really serious about this relation with him. But he doesnt want a easy, free-sex relationship anymore he wants real love ahhhh
Hunter from South West, MiI thought exactly what martin though
Joost from Eindhoven, NetherlandsI think its about the affaire too. I can't make you hang around. I can't wash you off my skin. those lines discribe it the best i think
Jess from London, EnglandI've always thought this was about Josh Homme's affair with Brody Dalle from the Distillers. Her husband Tim Armstrong found out because he saw pictures of them together (they're just photos after all) but I don't know.
Martin from Hamburg, GermanyI always thought it's about a guy whos girlfriend does erotic pictures (ie porn)and he now wonders whether he should leave her. I have to agree with Dave though - great song!
Laura from Wincanton, Englanda heavy reference to sex in this song i fink!
Dave from London, EnglandGreat song! Definately a song you'd drive your car to.... this site needs more QOTSA songs, they are the best!
