I’m the coil unfolding screwed back up
I’m the flower unfurling, buttercup

Fill it up to a bursting
Fill it up
I’m the bridge that is breaking under foot
Bring the meat to the boil
Serve it up
Leave the body to spoil
Let it rot
Stick a head on a plate
Frenzy food
Take a knife to the limb
Six-foot cook

All my dreams are nightmares
Foolish baby boy

Revolt, revolt

I remember the moment I wake up
What the reason I torture myself was
I've been chosen to carry this burden
Scratch my tissue with finger, nails and thumbs
Pull a blade from a swarm
Sharp and cold
Pull a bone from the arm of your son

How you disappoint me
You'll be forgotten

I live in a fantasy
Where I am dead and worshipped
People adore and love me
Poor boy what pain you felt
My body floats like dead wood
Replace my limbs with branches

I am chromosome
I am chromosome

Revolt, revolt
Revolt, revolt
Revolt, revolt
Revolt, revolt
Revolt, revolt
Revolt, revolt

I am chromosome
Get away from here
Go away go away from here
Now

    General Commenti don't know. the lyrics
    "i’m the coil unfolding screw back up
    i’m the flower unfurling, buttercup"
    sought of sounds like he's blooming, getting his spring back. maybe he he was depressed or something.
    and the lyrics up there say "reflect, reflect"... but he's saying "result, result".
    anyhoo, kick ass song

    General Commentfew mistakes...
    1. "i'm the coil unfolding SCREWED back up"
    2. it's not reflect and it certainly isn't result, the lyrics directly from the lyric book are "REVOLT, REVOLT!"
    3. "WHAT the reason i torture myself was"
    4. "PULL A blade from a SWARM sharp and cold"
    5. AND AGAIN PEOPLE REVOLT! NOT REFLECT OR RESULT!

    General Commenti think its about cancer. chromosomes "revolting" and "pulling blades" from the DNA helix might refer to DNA mutations.

    "I’m the coil unfolding screwed back up, I’m the flower unfurling, buttercup" - this is when the DNA helix splits apart in the reproduction proccess. when the DNA strands re-combine, thats when mutations occur.

    "leave the body to spoil, let it rot" sounds fairly cancerous to me

    General CommentNicely interpreted hotdog.

    I love this verse:
    I live in a fantasy
    Where I am dead and worshipped
    People adore and love me
    Poor boy what pain you felt
    My body floats like dead wood
    Replace my limbs with branches
