"Corporeal" as written by and Patricia/cargill Keenan....
Under the white chalk
Drawn on the black board
Drawn on the black board
Under the x-ray
I'm jut a vertebrate

Do that to me
Do that to my anatomy
Do that to me
Do that to my anatomy
Corporeal Corporeal

We are mankind
We are manikin
With and without mind
With or without Darwin

Classify me
The strings of my autonomy
Classify me
The strings of my autonomy
Corporeal corporeal

A thorny red heart
Around a thin arm
Inside a white bone
The love is inborn

Close up to me
Up close to my anatomy
Close up to me
Up close to my autonomy
Corporeal corporeal
Corporeal

    General Commentwhat a beautiful song. this song is about being human/animal and understanding that. not about commitment, love or religious ideas... it's about being independent, satisfying your human needs and nothing more.

    My Interpretationi think this has two meanings. one is as a protest song/ song or awareness. i think she is telling us how we stand from the pov of some kind of power/s. i think she is saying that she is a soulless vessel and they can dictate her own limitations. or maybe she doesn't fit in and wants to fit in with society. the second is that she is begging someone to love her and this is the way u can view her is it helps u do it. idk
