"Love is an act of blood and I'm bleeding a pool in the shape of a heart." GodDAMN. Alongside "Six Degrees of Inner Turbulence", "Scarred", and "A Change of Seasons", this may be my favourite song from DT.
"...I saw a picture of a girl modeling this piece of clothing called a space-dye vest. And, so, I fell in love with her [laughs] for some strange reason and so the minute I did that, the minute I was just like obsessed with this person, I was like, 'why am I doing that?' and I noticed that I was doing it a lot lately. And I think the prime reason that I was doing that, and this is what I figured out at the time, was that I had just come out of a relationship where I'd gotten dumped, basically, and so I think the situation was that I wasn't finished giving all that I was ready to give, so I was just, like, throwing it around, you know, just aiming it in different directions. It was a total case of projection. And this song is just trying to sort it out and just kind of admitting that I'm just kind of lost. So it's kind of a dark song. It was very cathartic though." -- Moore. As for me, I don't think that women are capable, biologically, of bearing this dire lingering feeling.
" he wants you for a possession,
Something to look at like a painting or an ivory box.
Something to own and to display. he doesn't want you to be real,
Or to think or to live. he doesn't love you, but I love you.
I want you to have your own thoughts and ideas and feelings, "
I like the samples. I always picture him sitting in front of the tv, zoning out and thinking that everything he sees relates to him. Could explain the 'in houston they say that?' bit... I also think the samples spoken by females are the women he sees on the tv and wishes he could be with. the samples are what he hears.
