"Starbelly" as written by Courtney M Love and Eric T. Erlandson....
Dear everything.
Today I witnessed a crucifixion in pink and lavender and gold.
I've heard people say that beauty is in details,
But I don't think they have ever seen you.
There were mortal wounds inflicted on the sky
And incrminating blue stains on my shirt.
The shirt you bought for me.
Christ it hurts.
Like stars in my belly going supernova.
I feel like a zombie that refuses to live.
Haunting the junkyards and cutting myself on scraps of you.
The other day I masturbated to pictures of you at your birthday party.
They were the only ones I still had.
It felt so wrong, just like my life.
I hope I'm dead by the time you read this. I love you.

    General Commenti think its a sucide note
    its adressed much like a letter and he claims he'll be dead by the end of it
    the reason for this sucide note is the post realtionship problems hes been having
    just the site of the shirt his lover bought him makes him weak and in pain
    he'll masterbate to damn near anything left of his former girlfriend even something as innocent as a birthday party although he feels guilty
    but w.e that girl made him feel
    it was all he had

    General Commentjesus christ...

    i think this song is about how he feels crucified after she left him, and just these memories, like, maybe a blue shirt that she bought him, all the memories just keep hurting him inside.. "stars in my belly going supernova" probably means that all the "stars" are "shooting" inside his belly, and he really feels it.. "feel like a zombie that refuses to live".. well.. this is how we all feel after such a devestation... the whole song, the lyrics, just amazing.. amazing, amazing, fucking amazing..

    General Commentpig destroyer are so damn ace.

    i think that this song is a true reflection of love.. love isn't perfect and it has it's fucked up sides and fucked up elements. it's about how totally devastated you feel after losing love... you feel crucifried. and you want to die. and no matter what you try to do to distance yourself from your love... you cant stop "cutting myself on scraps of you". I think most of it is fairly obvious, but yet really poetic.

    General Commentactually, i read an interview a while ago, and i think it's about him seeing an old friend of his after many years. or something along those lines.

    General Commenti think its about a guy ruining the relationship and regretting it...he did it to himself but he still loves her.
    "There were mortal wounds inflicted on the sky
    and incriminating blue stains on my shirt.
    The shirt you bought for me."
    that means to me that he did it to himself...he say wounds in the sky..with incriminating blue stains on his shirt...he did it to himself.
    missing and regretting a relationship with someone you ended and wanting it back even though its way past over.

    I hope I'm dead by the time you read this. I love you.

    that just kicks my ass.

    My InterpretationThis is one of my best Pig Destroyer songs ever.And holy shit that slow doomy groove kicks your face in.
    This song is like a love letter/suicide note the main character writes in his diary :"Dear everything" Dear diary/my everything ,my past,present and future.(he describes the person to whom this letter is addressed to as his everything. "Today I witness a crucifixion in pink and lavender and gold."He describes a wedding with the theme of those 3 colors.He compares this wedding with a crucifixion because it is not his but the girl he loves`s."I`ve heard people say beauty is in the details"-the people complimented the bride.."...but I don`t think they`ve ever seen you"-No one saw her true beauty like he did.He describes a silly blue stain on his shirt,the one she bought for him(For the wedding or when they were still lovers I don`t know) a painful fact to realize.He compares it to an inflicted wound on the sky.The pain he feels of losing her feels like stars in his belly going supernova(exploding inside him like a compact universe expanding of overwhelming feelings).He feels like a zombie that refuses to live(Powerful description) haunting the junkyards and cutting himself on scraps of her.(See 'junkyard god' as that song describes their relationship,how psychotic she really was and made him into).He then describes how he masturbated to pictures of her at her birthday party one day,thinking that if she read this she would understand that he loves her;this is man who has been reduced to a shallow and sad beggar.They were the only ones he still had.(She must have taken all she owns back).But he feels not only guilty for doing it but for his whole life.everything felt wrong.He is embarrassed of his life so he hopes she would not find him alive with this letter."I love you" (what a coward and manipulator).This is one of those songs that not even a million emo-bands can write
