"She Spider" as written by and Bo Rune Madsen Jonas Bjerre Terkelsboel....
After we go to sleep
Our sun rise
I will make it the truth
Of painfully helping me
Cover up things
I wish I never had found
Confident, tangled up
In a nice life
Put the spider in you
Watching in disregard
You live a nice life
With the spider in you

Confident, tangled up
In a nice life
Put the spider in you
Watching in disregard
You live a nice life
With the spider in you

I saved myself
For someone
Somewhere's sweet caress
Something goes wrong
And all I sought was happiness

And so
In right wing fashion
We'll nurture xenophobia
And be strong
In right wing fashion
With paste and generosity
Because no one is safe
From someone
Somewhere's sweet embrace
And so I
Have simply decided
To dislike you now

    General Commenti am thinking whoever posted these lyrics meant 'SHEspider'...?
    i have always thought of the chorus as sort of.. though one can live a nice life, ie, suburbian with loving family, boy/girlfriend, etc., they still end up having some kind of problem [depression, something internal] which is expressed as the spider. however i've always heard the lyrics as 'with a spider in you', which would make sense on this point of view. also, it doesn't quite fit with the rest of the lyrics... possibly.... hm.

    General CommentI agree with you, but it almost makes me think it has something to do with love ruining things, too. How there's a "she" in front of spider. The line made me think this was the whole "I saved myself
    For someone someshere's
    Sweet caress
    Something goes wrong
    And all i sought was happiness " thing. It's like he's saying he saved himself up for someone, and it didn't work out, and all he wanted was a little love and happiness. And by the end, he's finally saying nobody is safe from an unhappy relationship, they happen to everyone (no one is safe from somone somewhere's sweet embrace), and he either hates the idea of false love, or some girl in general. You can really tell (I have simply decided to dislike you now). But yeah, your idea could be it, too. I guess I'm jsut taking the emo side of it.

    General CommentI think this song could be about the government. The first stanza could be that he uncovered something the government was hiding and wishing he had never found out. And then when he talks about the nice life, it could mean that politicians are supposed to be upstanding people but in reality they are corrupt (spider?) And then the whole rightwing fashion line, Conservatives in his opinion might be quick to go to war and judge (xenophobia) and in the end of the song he has just decided to give up on trusting in the government. And something else has just come to me. You could consider the government a female spider and the citizens the spider's babies. Certain spiders eat their young....thats deep cuz

    General CommentThe song is about the government, the Danish government to be precise, Mew have said this many times. ..which is why I find it quite amusing that this song made it onto the Spiderman 2 soundtrack!

    General CommentEveryone understands songs in his own way.
    Anyway, I feel this song talks about love, a some sort of unfinished love-story from the past.
    maybe a one-sided, secret love which was never expressed and therefore kept deep inside.
    And the song speaks of how that person moved on,trying to live a nice life,probably marrying another woman,have a family etc. leaving it in the past. not fully confronting with it.
    He saved himself for her sweet caress, and when something went wrong- she rejectged him or he couldn't expose his true feelings to her, he gave up on being with her and began searching for happiness, to ease the pain and try to forget what happend.
    so those old deep feelings still live inside of him, hurting him like a spider residing in his mind, or soul.
    And when people go to sleep, they're sun rise - a metaphor for how our true souls and minds reveal to us in our dreams, and so though he wishes to forget this feelings, this spider, they are revealed to him when he sleeps, and he can't trully escape nor forget them. he, though wishes not to, finds they still exist, the spider in him lives within.
    And like himself, no one is safe from that kind of complications of love.
