    "I was taught a belief system where there wasn't really any room to discover my own belief system. So whether it's in 'Icicle' or 'God' or 'Past the Mission'... where from 'Icicle' where the girl masturbates to survive that whole sexual, shamed, repressive world which I grew up in. So at ten years old, I would think these things and feel really bad that I had these feelings. And when they would put the wafer on my tongue, you know how they put the wafer and 'this is the body of Christ' blah, blah, blah. And I'm going, 'You know, this doesn't feel really comforting. I mean, my little warm hand on my little warm spot would feel much more comforting than this stale wafer.' And 'Icicle' is kinda the tragedy on the record, but that girl's really brave."

    "'Icicle,' the little girl reclaiming her numb parts, her sexuality that was lost with her religion."

    "This (the masturbation) was when I was ten. I remember my sister threatening she was going to tell on me because I asked her about it...You know, she had been really threatened by the whole religion. And she was genuinely worried for my soul...My instinct was 'This is natural', but the belief system was that it was evil. You couldn't love Jesus and do this. You have to understand, I was doing this while saying 'Jesus, I love you. Jesus, I love you.' ... People think their hands are going to fall off. It's a shame that people don't just say 'Hey, don't do this while you've got food in the other hand. There's a place to do this.'"

    I don't think any musician in the world makes music like this anymore.

    The way she sings "gonna lay down" haunts my darkest dreams.

    its not about masturbation. i dont know what its about. but its about something tragic and sad that words cannot probably describe very well.

    This song is amazing...but ever since I've heard it I've wanted to masturbate in my room while my parent's Catholic ministry group is in our living room singing songs to Jesus :S

    The dischords in the intro.... I can't even describe how I feel when I hear them, but they are powerful.

    The intro and the 'getting off' part...there are no words to descibe the beauty. It's a shame she goes straight to 'icicle, icicle' when performing this song live.

    Undeniably incredible. Both restrained and free, both forceful and gentle, dissonant and gorgeous.

    Incredible as always. The sound of it all. Production is just brilliant too. Tori's audiophilliac tendencies just shine through. You can hear *everything!* And it's beautiful.

    I think the strange little webcast performance of this song is this most intense...especially the "getting off"-part <3

    This song is so amazingly deep.. Not just "naughty", it's also tragic in a way. And I can relate to it, kinda.. I love it.

    I just love the early live versions when she tells the little story before it and 'this is my prayer', though this song is perfect in every version :)
