What Do You Want From Me Lyrics

As you look around this room tonight
Settle in your seat and dim the lights
Do you want my blood, do you want my tears
What do you want
What do you want from me
Should I sing until I can't sing any more
Play these strings until my fingers...

    There is clearly a few parallels with the bible and God like status also. "walk on water", selling of ones soul for complete control, much like Christ was tempted while on the earth, but overcame.

    I feel like it's clearly towards his obsessive fans, wanting all they can get from the amazing band.

    It about a narcisistic relationship.

    I think this is the artiste asking his audience what more do you want from me, expect from me...
    He is tired. Weary from a long tour and relationships within the band are strained. He's just feeling too stretched, too controlled, too possessed..... Sometimes it's a matter of be careful what you wish for.... A dream can, at times be your own nightmare!!

    It clearly Dave taking a shot at Roger who for whatever stubborn idiotic reason thought that he and he alone was the only artistic force in the band. Together Gilmour and Waters were great... apart Dave shits all over Roger.

    it's about stressing out to much about someone who's run you dry/bothered you/etc. for too long and wondering just what it is they want, and trying to figure them out.
