"Biological" as written by and Darrin/pierre O'brien....
Thousands of hairs
Two eyes only
Its you

Some skin
Billions of genes
Again its you

XX XY
That's why it's you and me

Your blood is red
It's beautiful genetic love

Biological
I don't know why I feel that way with you
Biological
I need your DNA

Your fingerprints
The flesh, her arm, your bones
I'd like to know
Why all these things move me

Let's use ourselves to be as one tonight
Apart of me would like to travel in your veins

Biological
I don't know why I feel that way with you
Biological
I need your DNA

    General CommentI'm not sure what to make of it. If you look at it one way, it could be about how the natural forces of attraction pull people together. But it could also mean that it's all just flesh, DNA, and atoms and in the end it doesn't mean anyhing.

    General CommentI agree with the second comment, I for one wished that I wrote that song. So simple... brilliant... no one really takes a look at what we are made of and let alone make a song of it... makes me feel that we take a lot of granted.

    General CommentI think this song is about how perfect love can make a person or how perfect a person is just by....being. On the other hand last time i heard it I also thought "we are just flesh covering our bones, why should we bother then about outr appearance so much?"

    General CommentI think this song is about how perfect his lover is in every way. It's also nihilist in a sense that we are all comprised of flesh and bones. We are nothing but we are everything.

    General CommentOh yes, I love this song so much, it's pure beauty. I think it's about how his love is so primal and it's just instinct for men and women to be attracted to eachother. Like how he says her blood is beautiful. She is living and breathing and just that is beautiful to him, like he's worshipping the human body, not just the outside but everything that makes it up, the bones and fingerprints.

    /Let's use ourselves to be as one tonight
    Apart of me would like to travel in your veins/

    That part is him sweet talking her into having sex. ;)

    Saying he needs her DNA is kind of love saying he needs her soul, her esssence, her body and mind, everything that is her.

    Lovely beautiful and very deep and meaningful.
