Almost the entire In Absentia album by Porcupine Tree is a study in inappopriate sexual encounters. It's meant to be a study of deviant behaviour, and the songs can be taken lightly as normal rock songs, or they can be scrutinized. There is some very disturbing imagery in many of the songs if you dig deeper into the lyrics.

Blackest Eyes- Abduction and Rape
Trains- Incest and Bondage (this one is a stretch)
Lips of Ashes- Necrophilia
Gravity Eyelids- Drugging and Abusing a Child
Strip the Soul- Domestic Violence and Serial Killing (Fred West supposedly)

This is all very arguable, and there are multiple explanations for all of the lyrics, including completely harmless ones. A lot of their fans simply refuse to believe that there is anything ominous in the lyrics at all (they get their knickers in a bunch over it). I've been following Porcupine Tree since 96, and there are ALWAYS multiple interpretations to Steven Wilson's lyrics even though he refuses to ever explain what any lyric means.

He's a big David Lynch, Joel Peter Witken fan. He likes to be shocking and provocative. Sick cat but I love him.

It's not on the official album but "Drown with Me is pretty unambiguously about a serial killer dumping a body.

And such a gorgeous song at the same time. Twisted.

DWM is in my PT top ten.

I always thought this song was about a dude who just couldn't get off.

BKITU: Oh, and one about a girl who had a one-night stand not being able to get over it.

"Cuddly Toy" -- The Monkees

/You're not the only choo-choo train / that was left out in the rain / the day after Santa came


Pretty sure that's actually about a gang bang. Star Collector would have been a better choice for one night stands as it's about groupie whores. Or even Don't Call on Me.

The Monkess had a few fantastically dirty songs no one ever picked up on:

She Hangs Out - teenage prostitution
Sunny Girlfriend - disillusioned guy who is madly in love with a girl who doesn't give a shiat about him, vaguely stalkerish

Also I have bootleg of Micky, Davy, and Peter goofing off in the 1980s where Micky changes the lyrics of I'm Gonna Buy Me a Dog to I'm gonna find me a hooker.

Don't get me started on the awkward sexual moments and all sorts of obscene things that occurred during the show itself. The censors really didn't do a good job.

AC/DC - "Night Prowler"
