bring two prix fixe dinners up
I’ll unwrap the plastic cups
it’s just us my love
it’s just us my love

I will clean the room up nice
put your insides all on ice
it was real true love
it was real true love

close all the windows
put signs on the handles
and strip down to my dun-dun-duns
you have gone too far
you have gone so far

and tonight
its just me and the minibar (just up to diminished)

candles from the walmart that
every city has to have
that I bought last night
that I bought last night

I was so excited to
do such normal things with you
when you left last night
with your toothbrush dry

no such details will spoil my plan
that is the kind of girl I am


can you hear room 318...?
man they’re really happening...
they’re a wild bunch
they’re a wild bunch

but if they just knew
what my night was coming too
god would they vomit and run
you have gone too far
you have gone too far
and tonight
it’s just me and the minibar
nobody else
and I sing at the top of my lungs
happy birthday us
happy birthday us

    General CommentCount on me to come up with the weirdest interpretation of the song...

    To me it seems like its her birthday and she wants to spend it with the one she loves but sadly there dead. I'm guessing she died the night before when she bought the candles and everything to celebrate....
    So she has the dead body of the person she loved with her. Pretendfing she's stll alive and with her.
    "put your insides all on ice
    it was real true love
    it was real true love"

    and then...
    "but if they just knew
    what my night was coming too
    god would they vomit and run
    you have gone too far"

    They would vomit and run if they came in and saw that there was a dead person sitting there with her.


    But yeah I'm sure thats not what its about but the first time I heard I thought of this.

    General CommentIt is the narrator's birthday, and she wishes that the person she loves was with her at the hotel she is staying at. She wants to be left alone, and is drinking because the person she loves (in the sixth stanza) is gone. As she drinks her way through the minibar she begins doing something self-destructive that would cause onlookers to 'vomit and run'; perhaps it is cutting herself, or even burning herself with the candle mentioned in the fifth stanza. This song is beautiful and lonesome.

    General Commenthaha to the previous explanation... that's a sick little way of looking at it.

    I prefer to think that what happened was that she and her lover made plans and maybe had gone away for a vacation together, but they broke up the night before (when you left last night, with your tooth brush dry). She decides not to let her fun time get ruined (no such details will spoil my plans) but it's obvious she is very lonely and heartbroken about it.

    General CommentMy way of looking at it is that her "man" is gone, somewhere, either dead or broken up with her, and it's their anniversary(happy birthday us). So, she's going to get drunk to forget about him. She "strips down to her dun dun dunns" and then later on when they would "vomit and run" I got that she was either masterbating because she's lonely or just the sight of her depression and her drinking benge would terrifying them.

    So basically she's sad and lonely...

    General CommentI think this song likely originated from her loneliness from being on the road not only for touring, but for publicity.

    I think her reference to "god would they vomit and run" is a bit of a hyperbole, exagerating how she thinks people would react towards what she views as a pathetic evening.

    General Comment... this is the first time I've ever felt sad at a dresden dolls song. The ending is all... *sniff*

    To me it sounds like her man or whoever she was with going to spend the night with her on her birthday, but he left the hotel before the dinner (chances are he ran away, from the sad tone of the song) - but she goes ahead and has her dinner for two without him anyway. She then drinks her way through the minibar, sad and alone, until she collapses.

    :'(

    General CommentI agree with the 'abandoned on the anniversary' scenario, but after listening to this song a couple of times I figured that 'you' referred interchangeably to the absent lover and the minibar--creating confusion around 'put your insides all on ice', which I suppose refered to the drinks. AS for 'if they just knew what my night was coming to', I don't think it refers to anything specific. It's just a bit of foreshadowing to Amanda's (?) being driven to something drastic by unhappiness and excess of drink.

    General CommentFrom what I get from the lyrics, it sounds like "the one she loved" did something to really piss her off "you've gone too far"

    and the second verse
    I will clean the room up nice
    put your insides all on ice
    it was real true love
    it was real true love

    "i will clean the room up nice, put your insides all on ice" it sounds like she killed him in the room, and then cleaned up the scene and put his insides on ice, and the whole vomit and run ordeal would probably be from walking in and seeing the mess, thats just what makes sense to me...
