There never was a night like this
how could there ever be?
Through sweat and velvet misery
the fever-race in me.

Cornered in symmetrical design,
sphere-like chrome on a sea enraged.
Hatred.

What the mirror sees
is the clutching at straws,
taking us under.
The storm of the ocean,
this velvety crush.
Ringcorners, firm in the outrage.
synoptic patterns,
waves contort.
Break into these cellular walls.

Globes of disease
infest my dreams,
burning the ends of my veins.

Pattern and form
the squares cling fast,
dance the tide now.

Could never bear another night,
although I know it will come.
The freezing ends of what is me,
the icing rages free.

Take hold of the boundaries,
on this perimeter sea.
Burn, enflame the oppressor
and if four was one
in a corner alone
recovering, licking the wounds.
Delirium coming,
the weakness kicks in.
Reforming, cornered within.

    General Commentanyone knows what this song really means?

    obviously, there's someone in a corner, but what is his sweat and velvet misery?
    what makes this night so unbearable for him?

    i really don't know, and i'd be glad to hear some of your thoughts about this

    General CommentIf I had to guess at it...it seems to be about drugs. That's the impression I get from the lyrics. The fever, burning, etc. is the effects of the drugs in his system. I could be way off, but that's what it seems to be saying to me. I have no clue, but it seems to be an experience gone horribly wrong.
