"Scorpion Flower" as written by and Ribeiro/telhada/gaspar/amorim....
Curse the day, hail the night
Flower grown in the wild

In your empty heart
In the breast that feeds
Flower worn in the dark

Can I steal your mind for a while?
Can I stop your heart for a while?
Can I freeze your soul and your time?

Scorpion flower, token of death
Ignite the skies with your eyes
And keep me away from your light
Ignite the skies with your eyes

Render tears to your mortal act
Flower cursed be thy fruit
Of your courage last, of your grand finale
Flower crushed in the ground

In your empty heart
In the breast that feeds
Flower worn in the dark

Can I steal your mind for a while?
Can I stop your heart for a while?
Can I freeze your soul and your time?

In your empty heart
In the breast that feeds
Flower worn in the dark

Can I steal your mind for a while?
Can I stop your heart for a while?
Can I freeze your soul and your time?

Scorpion flower, token of death
Ignite the skies with your eyes

    My InterpretationFirst off, I love this song. This is just my interpretation - I might be completely wrong, but I honestly feel like this song is written about someone born with the horoscope sign of Scorpio. Scorpios are known for being intense, mysterious people, often with very dark, severe, piercing eyes that stare right through you. The lyrics to this song are amazing. To me, it's also about wanting to know someone completely, wanting to see their soul and everything about who they are, all their darkness and their secrets.

    'Can I steal your mind for a while?', 'Can I stop your heart for a while?' These lines suggest to me that overwhelming feeling of wanting to delve into the deepest part of someone's mind, wanting to stop their heart so they can be still, and so you can consume every part of them and know them without them stopping you or putting up walls to guard themselves. 'Ignite the skies with your eyes' - again, to me this is about someone born under the Scorpio sign. The eyes of a Scorpio person can be so penetrating that they seem to ignite power and mystery that you can never really understand, so much power that they could ignite the dark skies with the intensity of their eyes. This is just how I interpret the song. I could probably analyze it much better than that, but all I know is that I love it and I can relate to it!

    My InterpretationI'm inclined to think that this song is about love, with scorpion flower being a beautiful metaphor for love since it is generally beautiful, but can be also sting very hard and bring a lot of pain.
