At arm's length stabbed with a pocket knife
two and one half inches sure won't strike an organ but it sure feels like
groping in the dark, waiting for the day

I can't share
but you can use my flesh
if you don't mind I think I'll step right out
slip it off so I can't feel Los Angeles
and my replacement's parts nuzzling your guts...

Ocean nights and skies are the in-betweens
the untouchable when everything seems
to be drawing the shades and laying down to rest
the thought that this much effort will ever be attempted again

I can't share
but you can use my flesh
if you don't mind I think I'll step right out
slip it off so I can't feel Los Angeles
and my replacement's parts nuzzling your guts...

Salty sweet on the sand my friend
a late may's gaze that stole my soul again
kisses for all your insides, a smile for the priceless
I bit through your wrists, watched your blood bathe the crabs

I can't share
but you can use my flesh
if you don't mind I think I'll step right out
slip it off so I can't feel Los Angeles
and my replacement's parts nuzzling your guts...

    General CommentI'm obsessed with this song right now. I'm not going to attempt to explain it line for line (although I implore someone do that). At first glance, I think this song describes the situation where you break up with someone but still rely on them for physical pleasure. I would love to hear other interpretations.
