"Suture Up Your Future" as written by and Josh/castillo Homme....
I'm gonna suture up my future
I ain't jaded, I just hate it
See, I've been down too long
It's kinda hard to explain
Burned and buried all I carried
All my evils through a needle
As it pulled through the eye
What was and will are all gone

Don't sweat it
Thread to forget it
To feel like you're already gone
To the rest of, the rest of the life that you've got
Take a picture, bury it all away
Bury it all away

Tried to fake it, I just can't take it
I don't care if it hurts
Just so long as it's real
I won't waste it, turned to face it
I'd sharpened a knife, then used it till bone made it dull
Tried explaining, done explaining
Got caught in the plaid
All this talking at once
I've been giving my love away
To the things that tear it apart
I'm gonna suture up my future

Thread to forget it
To feel like you're already gone
To the rest of, the rest of the life that you've got
Tie the loose ends and bury it all away
It's like this, it's like this

    Song Meaning"This song is about looking forward and not giving a fuck what's behind." straight from the man himself at 3 voor 12 Acoustic Session, Desmet Studios, Amsterdam.

    My InterpretationThis song just sounds like someone who's had their heart broken and now they are depressed about it. In the second verse they decide to try to cut themselves just so that they could feel something (I don't care if it hurts/Just so long as it's real) and they realize after they cut that the depression they have is brought on by themselves and not someone else. So in the end they are stitching the cut closed which seems symbolic of them moving on and sewing closed the wounds of the past.

    General CommentThe lyrics are wrong as fuck.

    I’m gonna suture up my future
    I ain’t jaded, I just hate it
    See, I’ve been down too long
    It’s kinda hard to explain
    done and buried all I carried
    All my evil through a needle
    As it pulled through the eye
    What was and will are all gone
    Don’t sweat it
    Thread it to forget it
    To feel like you’ve already gone on
    To the rest of, the rest of the life that you’ve got
    Take a picture, bury it all away
    Bury it all away
    Tried to fake it, I just can’t take it
    I don’t care if it hurts
    Just so long as it’s real
    I won’t waste it, I turned to face it
    I’d sharpened a knife, then used it till bone made it dull
    Tried explaining, done explaining
    Got caught in the plaid
    All this talking at once
    I’ve been giving my love away
    To the things that tear it apart
    I’m gonna suture up my future
    Thread it to forget it
    To feel like you’ve already gone on
    To the rest of, the rest of the life that you’ve got
    Tie the loose ends and bury it all away
    It’s like this, it’s like this

    General Commenti think this songs about committing suicide cus its about a bloke who is well depressed, 'ive been down too long', and hes gona kill him self which is kinda what suture up your future means like to stitch up you future of like finish it. I also think thats he like preparing for it by 'tying the loose ends'.

    General CommentThis song is about burrying your past AND future or about living in the present. And how hard it is actually. You can go deeper into that but right now I'm realising it's not worth the fucking effort. Just keep it to yourself.

    A really good song, the new album is much, much more than I expected. Great proggress indeed.
