I have a list of 3 unintentionally gruesome lyrics. Can anyone else add to the list:

Every time you go away, you take a piece of me with you.
Paul Young

Stop dragging my heart around.
Tom Petty

Torn between two lovers.
Mary MacGregor

40-something guy

I don't know if this is unintentional or not. But it strikes me as somewhat gruesome:

She said that all the railroad men
Just drink up your blood like wine.
An' I said, "Oh, I didn't know that,
But then again, there's only one I've met
An' he just smoked my eyelids
An' punched my cigarette."

Bob Dylan

-- Scratch 8)


"...if heartaches were commercials, we'd all be on TV" -- John Prine

Not really gruesome but dirty

Guinaveres sly enough to steal a little taste
And her laughter it peels into the night
Oh but forbidden fruit always stays sticky on your face
With our virtue, with our centrefold

Rain Shadow

Not gruesome either but if you take the entire song 'Every Breath You Take' by the police out of context it becomes a song about stalking.

How about:

Take another little piece of my heart now, baby!
Break it!
Break another little bit of my heart now, darling, yeah, yeah, yeah.
Have another little piece of my heart now, baby,
You know you got it if it makes you feel good...

Janis Joplin, but I prefer Sammy Hagar's version... 8)

When my mind is free, you know a melody can move me
And when I'm feelin' blue, the guitar's comin' through to soothe me ~

Ragged lines of ragged grey
Skeletons, they shuffle away
Shouting guards and smoking guns
Will cut down the unlucky ones

Actually, coming from sting himself, the song IS about stalking.
I think I saw it on VH1 some time ago.

Yeah that sounds familiar, i think i heard sting talk about that song somewhere, not sure it was VH1 though.
the lyrics pretty much imply stalking in a very straightforward way - "every breath you take i'll be watching you".
that's as clear as it gets!

It is a song about stalking

I'd just looked up the lyrics to that song because a friend posted that Sting is coming to San Diego. I was going to quote a bit of it, but decided not to! I knew he'd said it was about a stalker.

"A cheerful heart is good medicine."

Little Willy Willy won't go home
Well, you can't push Willy well
Willy won't go...

Could've been the theme song for an ad for that stuff that shows the people in two bathtubs.

What's up with those bathtubs, anyway?

"A cheerful heart is good medicine."
