"Giant" as written by Matthew Good and Dave Genn....
Shake me, I'm waiting
In your new arc they're saying
I'm the creature in your sick thing
Everybody sees a giant

When the bad moon in your heart sings
And your wind up gears start grinding
Your teeth feel you smiling
A better, happier you
The better happier you

When you blow out like a dead star
It reminds me how uniform your beautiful is
We carry on like it's easy
Like you're all out and I'm your man

Hit me, I'm bleeding
In your lounger, on your grooming
It's the future that's whoring
The better, happier you
A better happier you

When you blow out like a dead star
It reminds me how uniform your beautiful is
We carry on like it's easy
Like you're all out
And I'm your man
Baby I'm your man

    General Commentby the way... the cheerleaders at the beginning... they're saying (and I find this funny, which is the only reason I add it, other than I feel that it is a part of the song that got left out), "K-I-C-K A-S-S, that's the way we spell success!"

    General Commentat first listen it sounds like hes saying "how beautiful....you're beautiful" instead of "how uniform your beautiful is" and then you hear him say "baby i'm your man." so if you don't listen closely you think it's a simple love song. when you actually listen closely you realise it's such a mean song. and i think of this song when i see a whole bunch of girls dressed up to look all slutty out in front of the main campus place for rush week so they can join sororities....of course they're attractive but they all look the same (uniform) so actually none of them appear to be worth talking to or anything...

    General CommentI dunno, I think when he says "how uniform, your beautiful is", he is saying more along how the lines of how everything about her is equally beautiful.

    General Commenti think my opinion about that was colored by hearing someone say that this song was written making fun of a girl who hit on him at a party

    General CommentThis song is great. The fist time he says "i'm your man", he then says "baby i'm your man". Then he says "hit me, i'm bleeding" not "but me, i'm bleeding".

    General Commentthis is from a poem he wrote. "I wrote this at home one night after a lengthy conversation with one of my older friends about the past (specifically the New Years party we attended on December 31st 1989 and the hellish debacle that ensued). Four months later I would discover it while looking for something else and realized that I had some music that it would fit. The next day it became Giant. "

    General CommentI never really thought about it, just assumed it was a love song, until I decided to look here to see if anyone posted what the cheerleaders say at the beginning. I now know this is definitely not a love song.

    General Commenti dont know if you can totally right this off as an ill hearted song. i've been listening to the song for years, and 'how uniform your beautiful is' never really struck me as hurtful, but like Teffa said, more of how everything she is and does is beautiful. I dont know, my opinions are skewed.

    General CommentIt's hard to know what to make of this song. It's not quite a love song, but at that the same time, it's talking to someone who's a conformist to some degree. I think it's just a bunch of mixed feelings shared by two people.

    General Commentlisten to the lyrics closely. "when you blow out like a dead star
    it reminds me how uniform your beautiful is
    we carry on like it's easy "

    matthew good band is from canada, a country which is constaly overshadowed by the united states, an internation giant. who better to blow out like a dead star than the mightly u s of a? uniform, could also literally mean a soldier's uniform. and the intro "kickass, that's the way we spell success" sounds like an American football game. arrogant chanting is every-bit American as an apple pie.
