Sweetness, it's just a matter of taste.
I wish we were not misplaced.
You only quote these lines, but I'll be fine.
I'll only recite mine until I'm gone without a trace.
It's just a matter of time

Strip for me as I have stripped for you.
We've got nothing to hide and we've got less to lose.
Strip for me as I have stripped for you.
I've got nothing to hide and less to lose.

Sweetness, could they have just a taste of this, this beautiful disgrace?
They find you criminal, delectable.
They find me intangible, invisible;
Gone without a trace.
It's just a matter of time.

Strip for me as I have stripped for you.
We've got nothing to hide and we've got less to lose.
Strip for me as I have stripped for you.
I've got nothing to hide and less to lose.

It's a lot to take but they won't find us.
It's a lot to take I know, I know.
It's a lot to fake but pay no mind 'cause this is how we're made, you know;
And so:

Strip for me as I have stripped for you.
We've got nothing to hide and We've got less to lose.
We've got nothing.
Strip for me as I have stripped for you.
We've got nothing to hide and we've got less to lose.
Strip for me as I have stripped for you.
I've got nothing to hide and less to--

    General CommentOne of my favorite Blaqk Audio songs. Maybe it doesn't mean stripping in the literal meaning, maybe stripping as in showing the real person he is and not faking who he is.

    General CommentThis imo seems to be about two people who want to be together but everyone wants to tear them apart because they think they shouldn't be together. So they run away together. The stripping lyrics imo would mean more of showing the person you love everything about you telling them everything not keeping anyhting from them and then they do the same for you being completely vunerable to each other.
    Or
    It could just be about two people who are in love and want to have sex but sex is seen as unclean thing where they are so they go somewhere away from everyones eyes so they show there love for each other alone.

    General CommentEllo mates!
    =D

    yeah, I think SkyExplosion was right on the first interpetation on the song. I think the whole 'Strip for me as I have stripped for you' is suppoused to be taken metephorically.
    Really like this band

    General CommentA small nod to Morrissey ("sweetness" from 'bigmouth strikes again') and 2 nods to Depeche Mode ("question of time", even the melody is similar on that account and "stripped").

    As for meaning, I think it is definitely not literal. Though I find the line "they find you criminal, delectable" interesting. Lolita-esque, perhaps.

    General CommentI also believe that Davey doesn't literally mean to strip. Being in a relationship of any kind requires you to become vulnerable to be torn apart by the other person.

    His feeling of being invisible, see through, etc is a reoccuring theme throughout the album and it make me wonder if through out the album, not just this song, hes talking about he feels like he's nothing because he has been torn apart by so many people he thought he could trust and feels like there's nothing left offer of his heart.

    That may not be totally true, but that's just what it seems like this album is about. Hurt...pain...heartbreak... and feeling invisible and quite possibly unlovable.

    *points up* For shame Davey! You can't tell me he's never heard of them, so yeah...pretend there was a point to that. As far as meaning....I think it's just an unreciprocal sort of love. The speaker having to ask the other person to "Strip for me as I've stripped for you" speaks volumes when coupled with the "we've got nothing" bit, but I may be ignoring the bigger picture. People say Davey's lyrics are so deep, but I can't help but figure it's just about sex or if you must have a deep meaning, unrequited love.

    General CommentSounds like meaningless sex to me.
    "You only quote these lines, but I'll be fine. I'll only recite mine, until I'm gone without a trace. It's just a matter of time."
    So they just follow a sort of set exchange without their own feelings, really, and he knows he'll end up gone, and doesn't care. And followed by "strip for me as I strip/have stripped (it changes depending on the part of the chorus) for you", It seems to follow a certain trend...

    Oh, and I , too, was reminded of Stripped by DM. I love that song, and so another excellent song that reminds me of that one is very welcome.
