Underneath the Song

 

Hi there. 

I've had a few questions over the years about what some of my lyrics and songs are about. 

I'd rather you get what the story is than just say "I want my listeners to find their own interpretation" - because, while I do want you to do that, I also want to give you some clues! 

So- here's a video where I talk about the lyrics of Kamikaze Girlfriend and then perform an acoustic version of it. 
I hope you enjoy!

If you like to read along, here are the lyrics:

Lyrics: 

Kamikaze Girlfriend 

Hanging out on my lonesome- 

It's a common department 

Feeling all of your oceans falling down- and I'm 

Falling too. 

I am crisscrossed across you 

A silent arachnid 

And I lost all my conscience- somewhere back there- and I'm 

Into you. 

KAMIKAZE GIRLFRIEND 

SKIPPING THROUGH THE DEEP-END 

COLOURS OF THE SOUL 

BLOODY-CRAZY TRIPS THE MIND 

STUPIFY MY DEMONS TILL THEY'RE SMILING TOO 

Wearing swollen red eyelids 

Watching walls falling down 

And my life just slipped sideways, run aground- and I'm 

Lost in blue. 

Folded up like a leaf 

On a cold winter's morning 

In the still, wet pools of my mind- and I've 

Fallen through. 

KAMIKAZE GIRLFRIEND 

SKIPPING THROUGH THE DEEP-END 

COLOURS OF THE SOUL 

BLOODY-CRAZY TRIPS THE MIND 

STUPIFY MY DEMONS TILL THEY'RE SMILING TOO
