She said, these wasp's nests in your head
These wasp's nests, these terminals in your head
These heart swells, these contacts in your head

Oh help no, these vessels
Our heart swells on these vessels
Our heart swells up, let's make them explode

Oh help no, these vessels
Our heart swells on these vessels
Our heart swells up let's make them explode

Oh, what the hell, she should've said
Oh, what the hell, we should've said
Our heart swells up, let's make them explode

These wasp's nests, these contacts in your head
Once again...
We could set it on fire for them
We could set it on fire for them
We could set it on fire for them
We could set it on fire for them, for them, for them, for them

Oh help no, these vessels
Our heart swells on these vessels
Our heart swells up let's make them explode

Oh, what the hell, she should've said
Oh, what the hell, we should've said
Our heart swells up, let's make them explode

Oh help no, these vessels
Our heart swells on these vessels
Our heart swells up let's make them explode

Oh what the hell,
We set it on fire
We set it on fire
We set it on fire

    My InterpretationPersonally, it's about unreciprocated love, or circumstances that are unfair for one party.

    No matter how much they wish to validate the situation, the other person cannot cooperate. It's simply not true for them.

    'In Context
    She said, these terminals once again
    These wasp's nests, these terminals once again
    These heart swells, these contexts in your head'

    The desired circumstances are the 'context' which is referred to. 'Terminals' are just points, like airport terminals; sendoff locations, or 'terminals' in the brain that relay messages.

    In reference to the latter, she's talking about his brain signals and how they're being activated by the desires, by the want or longing to make the 'context' true. 'Wasps nests' are the stings or the pain inflicted by these constant desires that end up nowhere, with no results. 'Hearts swelling' are his feelings growing and growing, but with nowhere to belong, because they cannot be accepted. 'In context' is her approaching the present situation, where he is longing for 'contexts' in his head. They allude to the same thing, but exist in different planes to contrast it. In context is realistic and contexts in your head are idealistic.

    'Oh hell no, these vessels
    Our heart swells up, these vessels
    Our heart swells up, which makes us explode'

    Vessels -both in the brain and in the heart. Brain vessels, thinking too much of the situation. Excessive contemplation and desire. So much that the heart vessels 'swell' for what they long for. Both of them together eventually prove to be too much and 'explode'.

    'We could set it on fire for them'

    That's his wishful thinking again. 'Set it on fire' is the start of a relationship. 'Fire' also alludes to how passionate it could've been or how much the desire burns and longs for it to be so that it's a 'fire', which eventually leads to the 'explosion'.

    Just a personal interpretation. :]

    General CommentSomeone on youtube said he thinks it's about wanting to be in love (keyword: "wanting"). My brother adn I think it could be about making decisions that affect you personally and majorly, like wanting to be in love. Also "we could set it on fire for them" means they could have information, or be able to make someone's relationship falter and fall. That could indicate "wanting to fall in love" again as you could have "set it on fire for them" in order to make the woman (or man) you love single. Also, pugie ism't a word, put Pugilist and Pugilism is, the are both a fighter or a boxing/fighting art.

    "in context" in my opinion says how she said something complicated or gave an expression that "in context" meant this: *sings red socks pugie*. "wasps nests" is something that stings, sowing that what she said, or something, hurts or stings. "heart swells up which make us explode" shows , again in my opinion, how they are being affected by whateever has happened. at the end it says "ah waht the hell, we set it on fire..." showig tht they must have thought "ah what the fuck, i'll do it and ruin whatever i could set on fire"

    yeh.. not particularly well explained, but beats talking about lyrics and how much i like a song on a songMEANINGS website lolol

    General CommentIn context
    She said, these terminals once again
    Wasp's nests, these terminals once again
    This heart swells, these contacts in your head

    Oh hell no, these vessels
    Our heart swells up, these vessels
    Our heart swells up, which make us explode

    Oh hell no, these vessels
    Our heart swells up which welcome this
    Heart swells up which makes us explode

    Oh, what the hell, we should've said no
    What the hell, we should've said no
    Heart swells, which makes us explode

    She said, these wasp's nests in your head
    These wasp's nests, this context's in your head
    Once again...
    We could set it on fire for them
    We could set it on fire for them
    We could set it on fire for them

    Oh hell no, these vessels
    Our heart swells up, which welcome these
    Heart swells up, which makes us explode

    Oh, what the hell, we set it on fire
    Oh hell, we set it on fire
    Heart swells, which makes us explode

    Oh hell no, these vessels
    Our heart swells up these vessels
    Our heart swells up which makes us explode

    Oh what the hell,
    We set it on fire
    We set it on fire
    We set it on fire

    General Commenton the promo cd the lyrics are n.b. i´m not sure if the word is context or contact:

    In context
    She said, these terminals once again
    Wasps nests, these terminals once again
    These heart swells, these contexts in your head

    Oh hell no, these vessels
    Our heart swells up, these vessels
    Our heart swells up, which make us explode

    Oh hell no, these vessels
    Our heart swells up, which welcome
    These heart swells up, which make us explode

    Oh, what the hell, we should've said
    No, oh hell, we should've said
    No, heart swells, which make us explode

    She said, these wasp´s nests in your head
    These wasp nests, these contexts in your head
    Once again....

    We could, set it on fire for them
    We could, set it on fire for them
    We could, set it on fire for them
    We could, set it on fire for them

    Oh hell no, these vessels
    Our heart swells up, which welcome
    These heart swells up, which make us explode

    Oh, what the hell, we set it on fire
    Oh hell, we set it on fire
    Heart swells, which make us explode

    Oh hell no, these vessels
    Our heart swells up, these vessels
    These heart swells up, which make us explode


    Oh, what the hell, we set it on fire
    We set it on fire
    We set it on fire
