"MX" as written by Chino Camilo Moreno, Chi Cheng, Stephen Carpenter and Abe Cunningham....
You're so sweet
Your smile
Your pussy and your bones
You're on fire
You move me like music
With your style

Let me think (about what?)
About girls (and what else?)
And money
And new clothes (and what do I do?)
Thirty nights of violence (uh-huh?)
And sugar to love

Closer to the lung so
Shove her over railing

You're sweet, but I'm tired
Of proving this love
You're a bore
But you move me
Like a movie
That you are

Let me think (think about what?)
About girls (and what else)
And money and new clothes (and what do it get?)
Thirty nights (uhh-huh) of violence (yeah)
And sugar to love

Closer to the lung so
(I can, I can) shove her over railing

You think it's easy I want you
It's not easy, look down, that's been closed

Let me think (think about what?)
About girls (and what else)
And money and new clothes (and what do it get?)
Thirty nights (uhh-huh) of violence (yeah)
And sugar to love

Closer to the lung
Closer to the lung
Shove her over railing

    General CommentThis is the best song from 'around the fur' and the lyrics are cool too. Although in the cd sleeve it says the lyric is 'you're sweet, your magazines' Chino clearly says 'your pussy'. This song is very sexual and i think it's about s&m in a relationship, with Chino promising '30 nights of violence and sugar to love' which i think means that he will hurt her but love her too. The chorus 'closer to the lung, shove her over railing' i think indicates that the more he loves her the more he wants to hurt her because it turns him on too. So as she gets into his heart (closer to the lung) he wants to hurt her more because they are both turned on by the violence. that's what i think anyway...

    General CommentI agree, the so-called perfect girl.


    And how far from perfection she really is...

    I can see how Chino has run into the superficiality of his life, especially living the life of a rockstar. How he has grown used to picking up hot girls who are all dressed up, with nice long legs, and perfect breasts.

    Yet a part of him underneath begins realizing how something just doesn't sit right with all these "perfect girls." How they are great to look at, and beautiful to take out, yet they have no substance.

    That glamour is #1 on their list and here's where this part is particularly appealing to me:

    you're sweet but im tired of proving this love
    see you're a bore
    but you move me like a movie that you love

    So she is sweet and beautiful, yet she seems to only know the hollywood style of love, where she merely follows the fake lifestyle of the rich and famous. And for her not being able to understand the depth of perhaps him or perhaps of life itself, and how she merely treats him like he's in some movie, makes him bored.

    I notice Chino, in a lot of his songs, likes to shove girls over the railings or throws electrical fans into their tubs. But I don't see this as a propensity towards violence. I see him moving about in a fake hollywood world with plastic people and their pullstring greetings. How he can just suddenly do something to mess up the perfect lives of robots all around him.

    My 2 cents.

    General CommentIf you just listen to the tone of his voice, it sounds erotic. Is it just e that thinks that?

    General Commentdefinitely a sick song about violence whether it's sexual or not it's definitely about love and how it can turn to hate. gotta love a loud song that's violent yet not the typical angered voice tone.

    General CommentAnalynne. It's about how greed rears it's ugly head in certain places and how when Deftones started making money and putting out albums, people that they hadn't seen for ages or treated them like shit, suddenly came along and started acting all nice and 'Oh, you're my best friend!'

    General Commenti somewhat agree with spankfrist but i don't think that chino loves this girl. its more like he can do it because he can. it almost sounds like the way you would talk to a groupie. and then analynne does something a groupie wouldn't do she calls chino a "fucking rockstar" its kindof like saying you're full of yourself. he might be getting angry because this person doesn't want him, and he can usually have whatever he wants. isn't it odd how many different meanings their songs can have.

    General CommentThis entire album is fucking amazing. This song tops it off perfectly. To this day it's still good start to finish.

    General CommentI agree with xpankfrisst...it's sexual, and it's almost like a physical attraction. The more he is turned on by her physically, the more he wants to hurt her. A great song none the less.
