Thoughts on Songs with Slipknot
2 years ago
It's the darker side of attraction and addiction. particularly in this song between a younger girl and older guy. In the video she's represented in black and white and in a fight with herself. Good and bad logic and emotion. He caters to her darker destructive side. He sees himself as the monster the provoking circumstance. But he's clever enough to realize it isn't completely true. She strokes his ego and she enjoys the control. He sees how it can never be but he's empathy needs rewarding with her love but he'll never obtain it. When you're the beast you seek beauty and when you're beautiful you want a taste of the beast. That's their attraction. And it's clear who wins.
I've had this conversation so many times, take a minute and thing, in the last years of your life how many new friends have you made? Or even worse, how many friends have you lose? I can't determine up to what age do we make our friends for life, the sure thing is as the years pass it's more difficult to do so...
This is awesome,it's super,and despite being my favourite track o the album, see how it's kickin in, with a line that everyone of us can relate. Fast blasting drumming and screaming those 3 things ("fire" is a metaphor of course) that we stuff our organism with, in order to make it through the day.
