Violent Femmes Lyrics


The Violent Femmes story is a story about a phenomenon
which occurs every once in a while in the so-called music
scene. The Beatles, the Stones, the Byrds, the Velvets, the
Stranglers,.. the Femmes. Who knows why these things happen?

One could consider them as a movement against all these
beautiful things you can see every day (including their
consequences): boredom of life, religious paradox, the
absence of basic moral principles, wicked social influences
on adolescent kids (teen psychosis), mechanical human
actions and reactions More...

Review about Violent Femmes songs
JackFM in Dallas is playing what he wants but doesn't give me lyrics... | Reviewer: Tara
    ------ About the song Blister In The Sun performed by Violent Femmes

I don't know why I looked up the lyrics...listening to JackFM will make me do that occasionally...but then the comments, wow! I'm generally VERY analytical and reading through all these I suddenly realized I won't get that five minutes back now and I DO NOT CARE. :) Still an ok tune in small doses...hear that Jack? When you are playing what you want I hope you don't want to hear the same stuff every day lol

Disappointing | Reviewer: Greedav
    ------ About the song Freak Magnet performed by Violent Femmes

Compared to the Femmes' first album, full of emotion and anger, this song is horribly disappointing. It just lacks the sound, the feeling of the earlier Femmes. I do not recommend this song, or the album.

i don't think its ABOUT masturbation | Reviewer: Anonymous
    ------ About the song Blister In The Sun performed by Violent Femmes

if you don't just listen to the lyrics but the tone of the song... you imagine someone feeling good, in a lustful way on a warm day walking along a city street after smoking a joint and feeling good, thinking about someone that turns them on...like that they had a wet dream about... it reminds me of the internal dialog... the things that go thru your mind that u don't speak aloud. High as a kite? yeah that means drugs... u might say u were strung out on someone or they make u feel high... but high as a kite implies some pharmaceuticals

MASTURBATION! | Reviewer: Caleb Patterson
    ------ About the song Blister In The Sun performed by Violent Femmes

This song is TOTALLY about masturbation. When you masturbate you get the same high as drugs and you do get strung out when your done because your not getting those pleasure chemicals getting to your brain anymore. If you don't use lotion you get a blister because of friction and friction can get pretty hot. Thus like a blister in the sun. Plus when we says big hand I know your the one...Its good having big hands for yourself for some reason.
Then it says Body and beats,which is the beating of your body,I stain my sheets, you get that part...us guys stain them dang sheets when we jerk it,I don't even know why...he thought he cleaned up but he didn't, and he found it the hard way. :( Most likely he rolled in it. Nasty! The-My girlfriend, she's at the end,She is starting to cry.-Well... If I were her I would cry too if my boyfriend is masturbating and not having sex with me. Its a wtf moment where you have to thing are you gay or something? This is my thought on the song. It makes a lot of sense. If the guy actually said its not, then okay...but I haven't seen a video interview. Until then I think it is about masturbation.

    ------ About the song Blister In The Sun performed by Violent Femmes

This song is so simple yet so real. Anyone who has been addicted to drugs and had a girlfriend can feel this song. It is sung in a cheerful manner as to imitate the feelings of pleasure that "going on like a blister in the sun", ie continuing to get high, does for you, even as you're singing about a sad, ruinous thing you are doing. And the idea that he is a rock star and can talk to any chick he wants and she will totally dig him, his poor girlfriend is starting to cry as he checks out other girls and continues to delve deeper into addiction (probably to heroin or something similar). REALLY FUN AND REALLY DEPRESSING AT THE SAME TIME. Those of us who have been high know about strutin our stuff, walkin, checkin out girls, feelin like a million dollars... until it wears off...

    ------ About the song Blister In The Sun performed by Violent Femmes

This song is about beating off. I've used a ton of drugs in my days, and there are many instances where things can be taken multiple ways. I know drugs, sex, and masturbation, and this song is about masturbation, not heroin, not extacy, pot, coke, ghb, 2cb, Ibogaine, lsd, mushrooms, alcohol, nicotine, meth, pcp, ketamine, barbituates, benzodiazepines, sedative hypnotics, peyote, datura, or any other drug you can think of. Oh, and don't take a drug like opium and suggest it's about that, it's covered under the opiate category which is heroin, or something like adderall, because that is an amphetamine. This song is simply about masturbation.

Song drug related obviously. | Reviewer: Anonymous
    ------ About the song Blister In The Sun performed by Violent Femmes

I believe the song is about heroin. "high as a kite" and being strung out. Not caring what anyone thinks, the drug makes you horny. Girlfriend at the end because she is sick of his addiction. Let me go on like a blister in the son, because the herion is killing him and whatnot. yeah...

uhhh ... masturbation? .... try drug use | Reviewer: Bill
    ------ About the song Blister In The Sun performed by Violent Femmes

This song is so totally about drug use, I don't hear anything about masturbation in it. Anyone who's ever used ecstasy can tell you what it's like to strut when you're out walking. And the greatly increased body temperature, blister in the sun?. Any sexual references you pull out of it would be the increased sex drive you feel on e. My girlfriend, she's at the end, she is starting to cry? Obviously her trip is ending, and she's not taking the comedown very well. I just might stop to check you out? Increased social tendencies, you'll talk to just about anyone, you will stop and talk to anyone who catches your eye.

This song is about ecstasy!!!

Its about what you make it.... | Reviewer: Tedstone
    ------ About the song Blister In The Sun performed by Violent Femmes

Used to listen to Blister on a jukebox @ a coffee house. Played it after poetry readings while cleaning up. We'd dance around singing it near the windows - people on Madison Ave. in Albany, NY would stare - sometimes applaud. Once there was a sing-a-long cause the door was open. I've also explained numerous times this song was NOT song by Neil Young...
