Lyrics for Seether by Veruca Salt:

Ow!

Seether is neither loose nor tight
Seether is neither black nor white
I tried to keep her on a short leash
I tried to calm her down
I tried to ram her into the ground, yeah

Can't fight the seether
Can't fight the seether
Can't fight the seether
I can't see her till I'm foaming at the mouth

Seether is neither big nor small
Seether is the center of it all
I tried to rock her in my cradle
I tried to knock her out
I tried to cram her back in my mouth, yeah

Can't fight the seether
Can't fight the seether
Can't fight the seether
I can't see her till I'm foaming at the mouth

Keep her down, boiling water
Keep her down, what a lovely daughter
Oh, she is not born like other girls
But I know how to conceive her
Oh, she may not look like other girls
But she's a snarl-toothed seether, seether!

Can't fight the seether
Can't fight the seether
Can't fight the seether
I can't see her till I'm foaming at the mouth
Seether
Can't fight the seether
Can't fight the seether
Can't fight the seether
I can't see her till I'm foaming at the mouth, yeah

Song Facts

“Seether” personifies suppressed female rage. Psychologists have found that women on average experience more anger than men, but it is socially unacceptable for women to express their rage. Instead, women tend to be angry for long periods of time, seething. The narrator of this song describes her attempts to silence her anger by alternately comforting or doing violence to the metaphorical daughter she describes as the Seether.
In 1994 on an Australian radio station called Triple J, Louise said that this song was actually about the intense uncontrollable anger she would experience sometimes. She considered her temper to be a different person from herself, called the Seether.
