"Metal Now" as written by Max Bemis and Kevin Sachs....
I wanna rob you of your game face
So I can cower beneath your words
'Cause I'm a freak from the same place
Let suicide make a meal for birds

Into your heart, I've got the dagger
The metaphor will suffice for now
Get in my bed, I wanna kill you
Show you mine if you show me how

I get angry
When you're around
When you're around
I get nasty
When you're around
When you're around

She slit her wrists
For attention in 1996
She slit her wrists
Listening to live through this

So here I am, will you deny me
Metal now but I've always been
Lets make a toast, let's do the oil spill
Let the seagulls pick out the sins

I want it now, I want the danger
Give me strength and I'll give you wings

I get angry
When you're around
When you're around
I get nasty
When you're around
When you're around

Low

I get angry
When you're around
When you're around
I get nasty
When you're around
When you're around

I get angry
When you're around
When you're around
I get nasty
When you're around
When you're around

    General CommentAs much as I hate to say it, this song makes little to no sense to me. I love this song so much, but I just can't make much sense of it? All in all it seems like its about being in a relationship with someone that is emotionally unstable, as in they cut, talk about suicide, hurt themself, and it makes you so mad seeing them make that horrible choice?

    General CommentI think this song is about...angry sex. About almost hating someone, but the sex is still good. About having trouble in a relationship, but you know you're meant for each other. "I'm a freak, from the same place..." = It's hard to be with someone when you feel like you're looking in a mirror, and the other person reminds you of how you yourself are.

    "Let suicide make a meal for birds" = someone kills themselves and then the birds eat the remains.

    Apparently the girl in the relationship has already tried to kill herself...in 1996. Perhaps suicidal thoughts are the bond between them? "Listening to live through this..." music helps them through tough times?

    I still don't really get "Metal now, but I've always been..." Does he mean "Metal" as in the music genre? A "metal" sort of attitude towards life? Is he cold like metal?

    General Commentthis is my interpretation of it.

    i think that there is a couple, maybe like romeo and juliet. they aren't supposed to like each other, but they do and the girl does a better job of hiding it. i think that they're both in the same state of mind and can't stand it, but they don't want to end their lives and become something so insignificant.

    it's an angry relationship. they fight when in the open, and they use words like daggers to make it seem like they aren't into each other (this would be the metaphor). i agree that they do enjoy sex, but i wouldn't think it's angry...just hidden, and apparently max wants to do it hard as to "kill" her. he will show his "male parts" (haha) if she shows him how to have sex. this is such a weird interpretation.

    i think that max has to pretend to be angry and nasty when he is around her.

    then i think it changes when the girl kills herself. i think that maybe the girl wanted their relationship to be more open, perhaps? i think this really changes max into a more depressed person.

    then he is here, and i think he is ready to commit suicide, and does not want the suicide to "deny him." he is now cold on the inside, but he has always been; and i guess he feels guilty that he wasn't more warm to this girl.

    i think that the "lets make a toast, lets do the oil spill, let the seagulls pick out the sins" just refers to death in general. many things die in oil spills, and the use of "but suicide makes a meal for birds" in the beginning kind of implies that he's going to commit suicide because he's screwed up so many times before, and now he just wants life to be over.

    he wants to die now and wants the danger of knowing that his last moments are near. if he gets the courage to die, maybe they can be together again.

    then i think he's just reminiscing at the end, and wishing that he hadn't been so angry, nasty and cold to the girl while she was sill alive.

    this is probably a completely wrong interpretation, but it's what i got from the song. max bemis is genius for being able to write about major things like death and sex so metaphorically.

    General Commentagreeing with rocksolidgurl. to me this is about angry sex, and pretty much an attraction with someone you absoulutly love to hate.
    i'm guessing that "cuz i'm a freak from the same place let suicide make a meal for birds" is maybe the same statement like i'm a freak from hell? idk 'cause dont you go to hell if you commit suicide? either way one of my favories.
