Your skull is red
Fingernail red
Your bones are red
And it feels gold

Your lungs are red
Fingernails red
Your clothes are red
And it feels gold

    General CommentMy take on these lyrics is almost the opposite to most of the people here, who seem tot think its about murder.

    To me, it's not about murder, not in the slightest. It's about being in love and being grateful that the person you're in love with is alive.

    "Your skull is red/your bones are red." When you murder someone you don't see their skull or their bones, do you? Probably not. However, everyone who is alive has a red skull and red bones, as blood is passing over them all the time.

    to me, it's almost as if he's observing his partner and thinking about how much he loves her. The fact that her fingernails and clothes are red remind him of the blood which keeps her alive, "and it feels good."

    The song celebrates lfe, as opposed to celebrating the killing of life....

    General Commentperhaps about him murdering someone, hence the use of the word "red" about their skull/clothes/lungs. And it feels gold, or good-almost satisfactory, because he's happy he did it.

    similar lyrical concept to "Digital Bath" if that's indeed what this is about.

    General CommentChino's greatest characteristic is probably his ability to make a song have a certain positive vibe but a negative meaning. he does it alot with his songs.

    alot of his love songs are really angry and heavy sounding and alot of his uplifting sounding songs are about malicious type things like murder or abuse.

    General CommentOne of the best songs I've ever heard. Amazing feeling while listening to it...anyway, I guess it's about murdering someone, too. It could also be about suicide.
