From The YouTube Music Video Archives: People Got A Lotta Nerve by Neko Case

From her new CD, “Middle Cyclone”, which is great – amazing, really.

So the saying says, “An elephant never forgets.” / Standing in the concrete cage / Swaying sad and insane / They walked over the ocean in 5heir dreams they dream awake / Until the lights grew dim / until the cop cars came / Everybody tells me this is crazy / Yes, I know it / I’m a man, man, man, man, man, man eater / But still you’re surprised-prised-prised when I eat ya / You know / They call them “killer” whales?! / But you seem surprised / When it pinned you down to the bottom of the tank / Where you can’t turn around / It took half your leg, and both your lungs / “When I craved I ate hearts of sharks / I know you know it” / I’m a man, man, man, man, man, man eater / But still you’re surprised-prised-prised when I eat ya / Yes, I’m a man, man, man / Man, man, man eater / But still you’re surprised-prised-prised when I eat ya / It will end again in bullets, friend

Miki” spells it out for us over at www.songmeaning.net:

I think the song’s a little more abstract than actually being about wild animals… a maneater is basically “an irresistable woman who chews and spits out men after using them for some sort of gain — be it sexual, financial or psychological.” neko warned this guy that she’s no good for him and yet he didn’t listen and fell for her anyway. she has no apologies and points him to her previous warning. the “ending in bullets” is basically the harsh ending of the friendship/relationship.
