oh there is no right
there is no wrong
the way we live
there is only wrong

so radical
destroyed for nothing
and i don't care
i don't care anymore

remarkable
pulsating creature
into his calves
the poison flows
when it is wondrous
it makes us whole
force a hammer and a nail
through his skull

journey to the end of the night
am i alright
do i look alright?

a car has killed you
and your corpse
has de-discouraged us
to never never never never
look up the scorpion in our chests
cuts the word to scar
powerlessness

journey to the end of the night
am i alright
do i look alright? (x1.5)

    General CommentFTW=Fuck the world?

    This song seems like it could be about heroin. Or maybe just SATAN?

    General Commentthe lyrics as they appear in the album booklet (with all punctuation, spacing, etc. identical)

    there is no right, there is no wrong
    in why we live, there is only wrong
    so radical, destroyed for nothing
    and i don't care, i don't care anymore
    remarkable, pulsating creature
    into whose calves the poison flows
    when it is wondrous
    it makes us whole
    to force a hammer and a nail
    through its soul
    journey to the end of the night
    am i alright, do i look alright?
    a car has killed you
    and your corpse
    has de-discouraged us
    to never never never never look up
    the scorpion in our chests
    cuts the word to scar, powerless

    General CommentI definitely don't think FTW stands for "For the Win" in this case. This really does sound like a heroin song...

    General CommentLet me first say, I don't know much about Xiu Xiu. I like the band's music a lot though. When I first say the title of this song, I took it to be a reverse of the common acronym "WTF?" to mean, "Fuck The What." It makes sense, since Xiu Xiu/Jamie Stewart is such a strange kind of thinker. As for song meaning: Shit, who knows. All I know is the video created by the band contains references to homosexuality, book covers (including Celine's "Journey to the End of Night") and an odd flipping through books about birds and Darwinian classification. I won't try to dissect all the glory out this song's lyrics -- just make of it what you will.
