Queens of the Stone Age - I Think I Lost My Headache
Rated R (2000)

You know why
They called and just let it ring
No reply
The door is open I swear
Ain’t no use in picking up
You know why

It’s all my head I know
So they tell me so
Until my head explodes
Into my head it goes

Tastes so good
Oh, but I knew it would
Tastes so good
Burn like a match house
Medicate just to make you soft
Love is blind

Catch and release me
What the hell were they thinking of?
You know why

It’s all my head I know
So they tell me so
Until my head explodes
Into my head it goes

This is obviously not the original, but it is an absolute scorcher. Josh Homme described it as his favorite track on the album and discussed the meaning of the song:
"Paranoia… when you think something strange is going on, and everyone around you is so adamant about telling you it’s fine… but then you start thinking ‘Wouldn’t that be exactly what you’d say if you didn’t want me to know, and there is something going on?’ And so it’s kind of about that paranoid mentality which maybe I have sometimes."

I completely disagree with people who say the ending/outro ruins the song. It plays perfectly into the paranoid undertones and closes the album in a dynamic way.
