  • Can't stop thinking must of been tripping this evening
    My mind is racing demons and all of my feelings are numb

    Yeah and when I roll with my head in the wind
    And I feel like the king of the
    Dead men wishing they had gotten together with you girl
    But you're a dirty little liar with a message of obsession to come

    You got your head in the clouds and your world's upside down
    Get away from the life you're living
    Get away from the man that's stealing your life
    Get away from the drugs you're taking
    Get away from the film of sex in your life

    Can't stop drinking I'm cold kicking and bleeding
    The wine is numbing feelings and all of my memories are gone

    Yeah and when I roll with my head in the wind
    And I feel like the king of the
    Dead men wishing they had gotten together with you girl
    But you're a dirty little liar with a message of obsession to come

    You got your head in the clouds and your world's upside down
    Get away from the life you're living
    Get away from the man that's stealing your life
    Get away from the drugs you're taking
    Get away from the film of sex in your life Writer/s: ANTHONY FRANK NEWTON, DUFF ROSE MC KAGAN, KEITH NELSON, MATT SORUM, PETER FRANKLIN, SAUL HUDSON, SCOTT RICHARD WEILAND

  • Joe from Hobart, AustraliaSlash and Dave said on "Rage" the lyrics are inspired by Paris Hilton and the clip was originally supposed to be "Sucker Train Blues". The clip was done by a dude called Jellybean. Weird? I think so.
  • Robert from London, EnglandI really like this song... VELVET REVOLVER are deff more clear with there rock with this track.
  • Cool Guy from Compton, Cathis and that "come on, come in" sounds exactly like the Stone Temple Pilots song- "crackerman" just faster. i know the lead singer is from stone temple pilots, but wouldn't you of thought that he would know.
  • Seth from Hebron, KyDuff even said it was about Paris Hilton.
  • Joe from Ny, NyaT A CONCERT AT jONES bEACH in NY he said "this is about a certain little hotel heiress" referring to Dirty Little Thing
  • Snake from Custer , Sdany other band I'd say take the song for what it is in your viewpoint but with Velvet Revolver and especially Scott, it's prolly about drugs go back thru his history with bands and 90% percent of the songs are about drugs.


    thanx
  • Michelle from Salem, OrI saw Velvet Revolver in April when they came to Portland, by the way they ROOOCCCKKKED! R 'n' f'n r!(you can guess what that stands for). When they were about to play "Fall to Pieces" Scott said, "This next song is either about drugs or a girl." I think according to him, they could be one in the same. Who knows really I guess.
  • Erik from Willow Hill, PaThis is my favourite Velvet Revolver song. Just downright awesome!
  • Michael from Oakville Ont, CanadaBut is it really about a girl? Or is Scott using the concept of a troubled girl to really talk about the problems he has had in his own life. 'Get away from the life your living, get away from the drugs your talking!' He does this a great deal on contraband in general, for example on the song super-human (track 8) he refers to a girl 'red-hot lady', but the problems that the girl has are all problems he's had in real life.
