Real Lyrics -> Dirty Songs You Didn't Know Were Dirty -> Massive Attack

Sometimes a song you hear for the first time, is innocent and sweet sounding. Then you listen closer to the lyrics, and realize it's talking about stuff you didn't realize. Double-entendres help disguise the filthiest of songs.

Dirty Songs You Didn't Know Were Dirty, Massive Attack

100th Window album at
Massive Attack's, "Inertia Creeps"
The dirty Lyrics:
Recollect me darling, raise me to your lips
Two undernourished egos, four rotating hips
Hold on to me tightly, I am a sliding scale
Can't endure then you can't inhale
Clearly out of body experience
... Inertia creeps, moving up slowly
She comes, moving up slowly.....
I want to X you
Why They're dirty:
The song is a very elegant (much less dirty than many song lyrics today) metaphor for sex....I was tipped off by its very "bump-and-grind rhythm", the mention of four rotating hips of the man and woman in question, and the phrase "she comes"....LOL!...As for what the X stands for, take a wild guess! There's a lot of other bedroom-related lyrics in the song besides these, but I think these lyrics show very well that this is a very erotic of my faves.
