Well, I'm waxing the poetic and waning in denial
When you say go go stop no go
And I'm feeling quite pathetic -Until you flash a smile
you say go go stop no go
These drinks make me feel dizzy -If you leave, I pray you'll miss me
say go go stop no go
But there’s a secret in your laughter - A happily ever after

When You say go go stop no go

AND NOW YOU KNOW

We are the music makers the lovers and the breeders
And we are the new risk takers
The narcissistic feeders
Well, we kiss like painted tigers
But we bleed like no one else
cause, we are the music makers
Consumed with just ourselves

I wake up every morning and feel like a statistic
you say go go stop no go
It's your prickly aggression - That makes me optimistic
you say go go stop no go
Often sick with my confusion which makes you disillusioned
you say go go stop no go
But all is right when you complain
As you scowl in the rain
Then you say go go stop no go

AND NOW YOU KNOW THAT

We are the music makers the lovers and the breeders
And we are the new risk takers
The narcissistic feeders
Well, we kiss like painted tigers
But we bleed like no one else
cause, we are the music makers
Consumed with just ourselves
Hey……….
HEYYYYYYY
STOP, GO, STAY
BUT HEY
STOP GO STAY STAY
HEY
STOP GO STAY
But if you walk away....... close the door

    General CommentThis is by far my favourite Scarling song, it's addictive. When looking at the lyrics, you KNOW there's something deep in it, about creating music and something new to express yourself, but the entirety of it escapes me.

    General CommentI have no clue what this song is about... Given the title I'm guessing it has something to do with them making music :D
    I just wanted to add a comment to say that this song is amazing and it doesn't have enough comments (that it rightfully deserves) ... So I'll add one more :D

    I second ToxicMuffins. I love those two lines but have no idea what they mean.

    My InterpretationReguarding the lines "We kiss like painted tigers, but we bleed like no one else,' it could be referring to a breed of parrot. As most parrots, they're very colorful and flamboyant, so that could be a reference to the "Rockstar/Artist" persona/lifestyle. Which, I think, fits with the song perfectly. There's also a breed of moth that goes by the name Painted Tiger, though I don't know enough about it to make sense of it in the song's context.

    I think the song as a whole is about the artistic lifestyle. The self destructive, melodramatic, hypersensetive, manically creative personality that often comes with artists of all mediums. It's the creative Opheliac, I think. (See Emilie Autumn's song (or album) Opheliac to understand the term, if you don't know what I'm referring to.) Or, though this ties in with the above interpretation, the creativity that sometimes comes with those who suffer from Bipolar Disorder/Manic Depression.

    Just my two cents.
