Maybe she'll snap her wrists doing cartwheels, or her ankle, dancing drunken at some rave. Maybe she'll go through a windshield and have twinkling bits of glass stuck in her face. She's so pretty in her casts, damaged so perfectly. She's so pretty in her casts, the prettiest thing I've ever seen. I only get to hold her when she's injured. I only get to kiss her where she's sore.

    General CommentPerhaps the person waiting for her to be injured is not just some boy, but her father. I don't mean that he's some pedophile lovin on his daughter, but a worried dad who never gets to see his kid who's "all grown up" and doesn't pay attention to him anymore.

    General Commentits more than obvious to me that this song is about a girl that only comes to a guy when shes hurt or needs help in some way...and the guy cares about her so much and wants to see her so bad that hes hoping shell get hurt so shell come to him and he can love her in the moment.

    General Commentthis song is, too me, about being used! it seems to be about some poor sod who cares so much about a girl that its driven him crazy! The girl uses the poor guy when she's having problems and feels like playing the victim, but the real victim is the narrator, who has too bide his time and wait till the girl gets hurt again (probably by some other guy) while his obsession and loneliness turns to insanity. The whole physical injury theme seems to be a metaphore for mental anguish and self victmisation. The scary part is how regularly situations like this occur!
    Best Band Ever! Great lyrics!

    General Commenti agree with chriswantstocry. this song is about a girl who comes to the narrator when shes hurt. thats why he wants her to get hurt, so that she comes to him and he can kiss her and hold her. the 'hurt' could mean physical or mental, i like to think that its both. Pig Destoyer rocks either way
