Scared Of Girls
(Without You I'm Nothing)
Lyrics and explanation


Without You I'm Nothing - Placebo

Lyrics : Placebo
Scared Of Girls
An introverted kind of soul
The earth did open
Swallow whole

Careening (x4)

Her next of kin who lived in sin
Was asking God to let her in

Careening (x4)

I'm a man, a liar
Guaranteed in your bed
I gotta place it on the rack
Got a place inside it (x3)

An extroverted kinda girl
Did tour the world with MC5

Careening (x4)

Her younger sister, had a blister
Where I kissed her on her thigh

Careening (x4)

I'm a man a liar
Guaranteed in your bed
I gotta place it on the rack
Got a place inside it

I'm a man a liar
Guaranteed in your bed
I gotta place it on the rack
Got a place inside it (x3)

I'm a man a liar
Guaranteed in your bed
I gotta place it on the rack
Got a place inside it

I'm a man a liar
Guaranteed in your bed
I gotta place it on the rack
I got a place inside it

I'm a man a liar
Guaranteed in your bed
I gotta place it on the rack
Got a place inside it (x3)
Press Quotes

“’Scared of Girls’ from the new album is a self-disgust song with an ‘I’m-ashamed-of-who-I-am’ kinda vibe. One of the lyrics is, “I’m a man and I’m a liar” - spoken from the point of view of someone who doesn’t feel very happy about themselves. "


Brian Molko, NME, August 1998



(Translation, quote in French
here)

"A song like Scared of girls, which evokes misogyny, was it become necessary for you?
BM: "It's an investigation to see more clearly the issue of promiscuity that may feel a heterosexual man. I wanted to know whether the men who behave like whores do it because they love women, or to the contrary, because they hate them, fear them."

This is a question that tormented you personally?
BM: "My life at that time was very hectic. I got through without much respect for myself. Ultimately I considered myself as an object."


Brian Molko, Les Inrockuptibles N°169, October 14th 1998



(Translation, quote in French here)

"It is a song about heterosexual flighty guys. Are straight guys who behave like sluts (sic) behave so because they love women, they are afraid of them or because they dislike them and don't want to admit it ?"

Brian Molko, Têtu n°33, April 1999
