"Reese's Pieces, I Don't Know Who John Cleese Is?" as written by and Matt Mihana Nabil Moo....
Oh, it's a shame that I have to tape over
Those elysian smiles I thought I'd keep forever
I remember it all like it was yesterday
Forget it all, set it down, hit record, and back away
My intestines are fastening laces
Intolerable to fucking untangle
These vigilant eyes can't keep off the timekeepers
Second-hand every angle

What's keeping you waiting? Usually out before I open my eyes
Why did you pick today to epilate between your thighs?

Are you waiting for his tongue to come?
And brush against your cleaned trimmed hair?
I hope he knows, that curvilinear gyrating space
Won't be the only thing he'll taste down there
Stop to think about it, if we've both flooded the same skin
You've tasted me, I've tasted you
Who knows how many places my tongue has been?
My tongue has been

I left, you stayed, I hoped and prayed
That these nauseating thoughts weren't true
Before we met, I wouldn't bet
I would give up nihilism for you

Nothing ever made sense, was I even real?
Took everything I wouldn't touch, and made me feel (Hell yeah!)
I had all my faith in you
That you would never commit an act of deceit
To wake up in the ante meridian
Knowing there would be solid ground to support my feet

If it is alright (if it is alright) to conceal the truth
Then when does the concealment end, and lying begin?
Tell me when? Tell me when? This is a maudlin motion picture
A theme song in search of a movie
I've got the perfect script to match this tune
Who really knows what goes on in the afternoon?
Let's not ruin the surprise

I don't buy these incredulous denials
Do you think you've found the exit t o your escape?
I really shouldn't be thinking this way
It would put my mind at ease if I caught your ass on tape
There'll be no excuses baby
I'll forward this to your friends and family

Maybe I should reconsider this diagnosis
Let's think things out before we conclude
Commonly a virtuoso at these procedures
But this was the saddest thing my eyes have ever viewed

The postmeridian hours that we performed
Seemed like such a perfunctory routine
But I can obviously tell by the footage here
That you're in love with his machine
How could you do this to me?
Next time you won't get out so easily
Now that I know what I'm up against, I came prepared
Bat in hand, behind the closest door I painfully stared

Say "hello" to this bark, in-between your teeth
Soon you will also be bleeding from underneath
It took balls to do what you've done
Having your manhood in your mouth is no fun
And as for you darling, you're going nowhere
It's kind of hard to move when you're tied to a chair
See there's a twist to this lovely, for you to see
What's hiding in your wardrobe isn't a shopping spree

Come out to stilts supporting the wait of lust
I always thought you were someone I could always trust
Now watch this, we're smacking flesh
I'm sure you don't even care
But with your eyelids sewn back to your brows
This leaves you forced to stare

With a wire wrapped around his neck
Tightly tied to a tree
There he stood on the top of the cliff
With his inanimate life above the sea
He drinks his virulent drink
And sets himself on fire
Pulls the trigger through the mid-air
Misses his head, and snaps the wire
Now choking and strangling in the water
His body begins to sink
Not only did that put out the flames
But he regurgitated his drink
This wasn't the worse thing that could happen... yes it is
We're dying slowing again
We're dying slowly again?

Stop! Rewind! Watch them die!
Stop! Rewind! Watch them die!
Stop! Rewind! Watch them die!
Stop! Rewind! Watch them die!

Stop! Rewind! Watch them die! (Oh don't you love to play it back, and watch it all over?)
Stop! Rewind! Watch them die! (Oh don't you love to play it back, and watch it all over?)

    General CommentHHEELLLOO!!!!... It's a bout a chick cheating on him with some other guy... And he kills them both after video taping them together... How do you not get that??...

    How he kills the Guy:
    Bashes him in the mouth with a bat
    "Say "hello" to this bark, in-between your teeth"
    Cuts his junk of and shoves it in his mouth
    "Soon you will also be bleeding from underneath"
    "Having your manhood in your mouth is no fun"
    Hangs him, poisons him, and sets him on fire
    "With a wire wrapped around his neck,
    Tightly tied to a tree,
    There he stood on the top of the cliff,
    With his inanimate life, above the sea.
    He drinks his virulent drink.
    And sets himself on fire"

    Song MeaningSo the obvious part of this is that he catches her cheating on him, but it's more than just revenge.

    The theme of cynicism from but the nuns are watching still kind of exists here.

    When he says "before we met I wouldn't bet I'd give up nihilism for you" and "took everything I wouldn't touch and made me feel." He's saying that he had reached a point in his life where he had learned to have no expectations and no disappointments, to the point that he thinks life is meaningless. The girl finally had him hoping for something, thinking that he could trust her. He starts thinking that life has meaning and that there are good people. "I had all my faith in you, that you would never commit an act of deceit." But then she turns on him by cheating.

    He starts to suspect that she is cheating, and leaves a video camera in the room, taping over videos of her and him together "It's a shame I have to tape over..." he then leaves while she stays at home. When he watches the video later seeing that she's cheating, and can't really fully accept what he's seeing for a time "Maybe I should reconsider this diagnosis."

    His idea of her being good falls apart and he realizes that she's only interested in sex, nothing deeper "But I can obviously tell by the footage here,
    That you're in love with his machine!" the word 'machine' is used to make her seem more like a robot than a person

    He then hides in the closet waiting for her and the other guy to have sex, then jumps out. Smashes the other guy in the mouth with a baseball bat, and cuts his balls off and puts them in his mouth. Either the girl is tied up to the chair while this is happening or he ties her up after.




    I think the ending is the narrator killing himself, but I'm not sure. I think the "stop rewind watch them die" might be the Victorian metaphor of sex=death. The girl being the one watching or another audience watching. I don't think the tape could be of the narrator dying because it says watch "them" die, implying multiple people. This is the only part of the song that I'm not sure about though.

    General CommentI don't know what the hell this song is about.
    But I love it. Especially the last couple of stanzas.

    General CommentI think it's about a relationship with someone, and then she cheated, and now they're dying out slowly, and he wants revenge. At least that's my opinion.

    General CommentI think the girl is cheating.
    he video tapes killing the guy and makes her watch it over & over.

    orr the girl feeels the guilt and she knows how bad it hurt him.
    the guilt makes her replay things in her mind over and over.
    the "manhood in your mouth" part maybe is about him feeling like, not manly because he got played.


    the part about "do you know where my tounge has been" maybe is him realizing that she's a whore, she's easy; maybe he is just coming into realization.

    My InterpretationI think he's in a relationship with a girl.
    He goes to work during the day and that's when his girlfriend cheats on him with another guy. (Who really knows what goes on in the afternoon?)

    He gets suspicious and puts a video camera in their room and sees that she's cheating on him.
    (I really shouldn't be thinking this way,
    It would put my mind at ease,
    If I caught your ass on tape.)

    He then ties the girl up and sews her eyes to her eyebrows and forces her to watch him kill the guy she was cheating on him with.
    (Say "hello" to this bark, in-between your teeth.
    Soon you will also be bleeding from underneath.
    It took balls to do what you've done.
    Having your manhood in your mouth is no fun.
    And as for you darling, you're going no where,
    It's kind of hard to move when you're tied to a chair.) (But with your eyelids sown back to your brows.
    This leaves you forced to stare.)

    General Commentyeahh, it's deffs about a girl cheating and the guy getting revenge, that much is straight forward. personally, i think this song's straight up amazing, and my personal favourite. i dont know if it's meant to be taken litterally or if maybe it's just what matt really wants to do.

    and the stop rewind watch them die part is probably refering to how he starts going crazy after he does it and is saying it to himself, and makes it seem like he killed the girl too, not himself.
    not to mention being an awesome chat that i cant wait to yell when they play this song febuary 1st!

    General CommentSay "hello" to this bark, in-between your teeth
    Soon you will also be bleeding from underneath

    (He bashes the guy's face in with a bat
    and cuts off his "man-hood" and makes him eat it
    then ties her to a chair
    he tells her he was hiding in her closet

    all she wanted was sex
    he thought he could trust her
    he watched her have sex with another guy
    and saw she didnt even care she was cheating)
    but now sinces shes tied up shes forced to watch him kill her "fling")
