love does no one much
kiss, kill, frozen still

(I get stuck)
I get stuck dancing the dance of the moth
and smiling politely as we're pushed through glass

hey you over there
come, sit, tell me what is it

    Love
    Does
    No one
    Much
    Kiss
    Kill
    Frozen still

    I GET STUCK

    I get stuck (I GET STUCK)
    Dancing the dance of moth
    Smiling politely
    As we push through glass

    Hey
    You
    Over
    There
    Come
    Sit
    Tell me
    What
    Is it?

    I GET STUCK

    I get stuck (I GET STUCK)
    Dancing the dance of the moth (THE DANCE OF THE MOTH)
    Smiling politely
    As we push through glass

    Yeah. I get stuck. Oh yeah. Dancing the dance of the moth.

    Smiling politely
    As we punch through glass
    ________________

    What is the dance of moth? You've all heard the saying of the moth and the flame. The dance of the moth is the deadly violent tango the moth does with the flame - drawing close enough to touch, then fluttering away, wounded, because of the heat. It does this over and over again until it's dead. Very like to trying to push or punch through glass. You may get through to whatever's behind it, but in your violent tango your hand gets shredded to pieces. Whatever's on the other side of the glass may be important, but it generally loses its importance once you're wounded, just as the flame loses its beauty once the moth is burned. These are also analogies for relationships with people. The message is clear - don't continue trying to force something when all you get is hurt by it.

    But like the songwriter, we get stuck in the same violent tango over and over again, smiling our way through all the pain even as we ignore the thought that maybe we should stop.

    General CommentYeah, it's like a moth against the window when you leave the lights on. Repeatedly flying back to the glass to assess the situation...

    General Commentarooj!,I totally love this song! I actually don't think this song is about stalkers or anything, rather about everyone around Daniel and the rest of the band at the time after Frogstomp was released. Tey became famous and therefore people acted differently towards them and this was Daniel's response. He's mainly angry and depressed. He doesn't really care aobut life and wouldn't mind dying.
