The Hunger Lyrics - The Distillers

Review The Song (15)



Holy eyes, I never knew I'd beg down at your feet
Hold on tight, I never knew I'd know much more than this
Open sky, the wave of pain, the scent of you is bliss
Hungry eyes, they stare at me...
I know, I know--
Don't go...

Summertime, the taste of saint secretes a perfume mist
Console the mind, I take it in with lips of pink I kiss
Lonely sky, the more you take the more that I give in
Holy eyes, I never knew, I know, I know--
Don't go...

Hold onto the memory, it's all you've got
I know you'll be there to soak up blood lost, blood lost, blood....

Don't go...


Hold onto the memory, it's all you've got
I know you'll be there to soak up blood lost

I think this is an amazing job done, no doubt about that. Brody is an amazing artist and the song rocks..but what most hooks me is the feelings her eyes transmited to me while playing this song live..it shows it means so much to her..it makes it mean the same amount to me. Awsome song for an awsome band. Hold on to the memory, its all you got. Izzy x.



i loved it!! | Reviewer: conny | 7/24/11

my boyfriend dedicated this song to me... we love eachother alot but i'm living in a diferent country for the moment... we miss eachother alot... in this song it says "Don't go" ... he didn't want me to leave, but i couldn't do anything... he just dedicated me the song saying "don't go... to late to say it but i love you!!!"
thats what the song means to me...

I think this song is about how it feels when you're addicted to something and long for it. I think it's mostly about being addicted to self injury and needing to and wanting to do it all the time, even when you know you can't or shouldnt.

Lonely sky, the more you take the more that I give in
Holy eyes, I never knew, I know, I know--
Don't go...

for me the song is about being broken and broken till you have no other choice.alot of the pain i feel has been expressed in this song even though i know Brody problably has not been through what i have and she's probably writing bout something else.but that makes her a great lyrists.to be able to express human pain so that so many people can relate



Wow | Reviewer: Becca | 10/3/08

Brody always impresses me. The combination of her tender voice and her brutal screams make my heart skip a beat. This is really one of those songs that you hear and won't forget. The Distillers did a great job, Coral Fang is a very interesting album too. Also love Beat Your Heart Out and Drain the Blood.



Great song, covered even better. | Reviewer: Deanna | 12/27/07

This song is defiantly great. I have been a long time distillers fan ... and now a spinnerette fan ;) I mean this song is so great even Brody's close friend Shirley Manson, lead singer of Garbage, has this song on her ipod. But i prefer the cover of The Hunger by Jesse "The Devil" (featured of the official Distiller's website) The cover has soul to it, and gives the song warmth while not taking away from it's original raw sound. Either way I love the song, and always will :)

Summertime, the taste of saint secretes of perfume mist

Lonely sky, the more you take the more that I give in

Lost blood. | Reviewer: Yyna | 8/8/07

This song, to me, is about an ex-boyfriend of mine:
Holy Eyes, his eyes were the most vibrant brown green I'd ever seen, and he just had me wrapped around his finger - "I never knew I'd beg down at your feet". I held on real tight to something that wasn't really real to him, as I find out he has a finance, "I never knew I'd know much more than this". And yet every time he looked at me with a wanting, I'd be sucked in and I wouldn't leave- "Hungry eyes, they stare at me. I know, I know-Don't go."
And then I did Leave, but I miss being with him greatly, though we're still great friends, "Hold onto the memory, it's all you've got." We still care about each other greatly and I'd clean up gashes in his head over an over again if need be(because he does stupid things like that)- "I know you'll be there, to soak up blood lost."
We met in the summertime, and our relationship ended not long before the official day of fall, right when the air started to smell like the death of leaves- "...perfume missed". I think about him a lot, and talk about him, and I may be in a band with him, but I have a boyfriend, whom I love dearly, so it makes it hard on the ex-"Console the mind, I take it in with lips of pink I kiss". He really sucked me dry, I was severely in love with him, but I was just a fling because he and his finance were on a "break" - "Lonely sky, the more you take the more that I give in". Even when I see him, I look in his eyes and sort of melt then I remember that he lied to me, and thats why I left - "Holy eyes, I never knew, I know, I know--
Don't go..."

I didn't make it up, this song just fits every aspect of that relationship, and it's why I love it so much because I can truly get over him everytime I listen. I love Brody. :)



Luscious | Reviewer: laura | 6/2/07

No one has ever so acutely portrayed the sense of abandonment. I thought perhaps it was about being thrown out of heaven... or meeting God, all of a sudden knowing what heaven was like and then having to leave just as quickly & feeling the deep, sharp, bitter sense of abandonment. I feel a deep ache when listening to this song. Reminds me of what teen angst felt like (excruciating).
Ever since I heard this song it's been like an obsession in my mind-- I can't get over it. Brody Dalle is super-hot.



MUSIC! THATS MUSIC PASSION! | Reviewer: tara | 4/21/07
