Track listing


"Sex Type Thing" is the debut single by the rock band Stone Temple Pilots in 1992, in their debut album Core. Evanescence covered the song in 2002 in the New Year’s Eve concert at Nitelife Rocks (a nightclub in Little Rock). This song, despite the title, is not about sex. It is about control, violence and abuse of power.



LyricsEdit

Stone Temple Pilots versionEdit

I am, I am, I am
I said I wanna get next to you
I said I gonna get close to you
You wouldn't want me have to hurt you too, hurt you too?

I ain't, I ain't, I ain't
A buying into your apathy
I'm gonna learn you my philosophy
You wanna know about atrocity, atrocity?

I know you want what's on my mind
I know you like what's on my mind
I know it eats you up inside
I know, you know, you know, you know

I am a man, a man
I'll give you somethin that you won't forget
I said you shouldn't have worn that dress
I said you shouldn't have worn that dress

I know you want what's on my mind
I know you like what's on my mind
I know it eats you up inside
I know, you know, you know, you know

Here I come, I come, I come

I am, I am, I am
I said I wanna get next to you
I said I gonna get close to you
You wouldn't want me have to hurt you too, hurt you too?

I know you want what's on my mind
I know you like what's on my mind
I know it eats you up inside
I know, you know, you know, you know

I know you want what's on my mind
I know you like what's on my mind
I know it eats you up inside
I know, you know, you know, you know

Here I come, I come, I come, I come
Here I come, I come, I come, I come
Here I come, I come, I come, I come
Here I come, I come, I come, I come
Here I come, I come, I come, I come
Here I come, I come, I come, I come
Here I come, I come, I come, I come
Here I come, I come, I come, I come
Here I come, I come, I come, I come
