"Silhouettic" as written by and Adam John Spark Anthony John Jackson....
Show me what it means
We're all dying to know
Do I take a hit to the heart?
Should I let bleeding words weep?
Silhouette a perfect scene
Flavour of the month is not that new to me
And you can always be never to far from me

Always on the same page
(I'm not sure we are)
Always on the same page

There goes my baby
She's gotta know
She's gotta know
That when the red lights on there's no one at home x2

Pick and pull apart
Leaving me split at the seams
I'm saying if you want blood
You'll never get a drop out of me
What is it you don't understand?
Showing no proof in your plans
Now baby this pain won't end
And this heartache still rises

Always on the same page
(I'm not sure we are)
Always on the same page

There goes my baby
She's gotta know
She's gotta know
That when the red lights on there's no one at home

    My InterpretationNah. Prostitution. He doesn't like it at all, it hurts him quite badly.
    "Do I take a hit to the heart,
    should I let bleeding words weep?"
    The key to this interpretation is the lines: "When the red light's on, there's no one at home." Red light being a reference to the Red Light district. Google it for more info. Again, I feel as if this song is an ultimatum. Stop doing it, or there'll be no-one at home. (I'll go.)

    General CommentI agree that the song is about prostitution, but I took a different spin from it. I think he is cheating on his girlfriend by going to visit prostitutes...
    "Flavour of the month is not that new to me" talking about the different prostitutes he visits..
    and he feels that it's harming their relationship and it hurts him so he wants to tell her.
    "She's gotta know that when the red light's on there's no one at home".. meaning he won't be there when the red light's on.

    My InterpretationI'm not sure about whether the 'red light' should be taken as a literal reference to prostitution, but may be a reference to cheating or just situations with a sexual context.

    I think that "when the red light's on.. there's no one at home" could also be saying that when he's in sexual situations his brain shuts down emotionally. Or to rephrase it, that he's only there in body, not in spirit.

    Also, I think the lyric is "should i let bleeding wounds weep?" rather than "words".. that's just by ear though; i could easily be wrong.

    General CommentI took a similar spin on it but though it might be porn, as in when the "red light" the recording light was on, they were just doing their job - it wasn't them... maybe?

    General CommentI think he is very close to someone who is involved with prostitution and is becoming to emontionally invested in there clients, so he is telling to just switch off when they are "working"

    My InterpretationI think all your ideas are good but a bit strange. I dont really see how its about prostitution, but maybe Ian has said that or something. To me it seems its about his girlfriend and how she felt when he spent all his time with his band.. "When the red lights on, theres noone at home" refering to when he's recording. The verses are about how he puts the pain he and his girlfriend are going through to make great music.

    General CommentI always took this song to be about HER success and them growing apart. Could be his success, though.
    I don't think the "red light" reference is literally about prostitution - it seems to be more about the emotional disconnect that comes from the work/success.
