"Whisperer" as written by and Sierra/harnage Kusterbeck....
You play my nerves
like strings,
all upside down.
try to keep straight...
my limbs are bonding now.
Since a few aprils ago,
endless chase to send away this...
tireless persistence of taste.

With a touch of your words
I saw the devil
sneak between my fingers (it's much too familiar)
With a touch of your words
I've learned to reverse.
It's gotten me nowhere...

A deep shade of
horizon gold...
the constellations remind me I am home.
We were lit from the west, our silhouettes,
yet a sight of industrial-ness
as the silence wins over every word.

With a touch of your words
I saw the devil
sneak between my fingers (it's much too familiar)
With a touch of your words
I've learned the reverse.
It's gotten me nowhere...

What am I supposed to think about wondering round inside out...?
(It's gotten me nowhere)
Patterns don't feel right,
still speaking like you know what I'm all about.

We were lit from the west, our silhouettes,
yet a sight of industrial-ness
as the silence wins over every word.

With a touch of your words
I saw the devil
sneak between my fingers (it's much too familiar)
With a touch of your words
I've learned the reverse.
It's gotten me nowhere...

We were lit from the west, our silhouettes,
yet a sight of industrial-ness
as the silence wins over

    General CommentI was listening to this song a few days ago and I thought about the lyrics and dissected almost each line and it made me LOVE this song like 10x more. i'm thinking this song is about influencing someone. here's my take on it.

    "You play my nerves
    like strings,
    all upside down."

    In this line I think of a marionette puppet who is being controlled by someone or something evil.

    try to keep straight...
    my limbs are bonding now."

    They're trying to break out of it but slowly they're settling down and getting used to it

    "Since a few aprils ago,
    endless chase to send away this..."

    They're trying to get rid of what has been instilled in them.

    "tireless persistence of taste"

    dunno about this line.

    "With a touch of your words
    I saw the devil
    sneak between my fingers (it's much too familiar)
    With a touch of your words
    I've learned to reverse.
    It's gotten me nowhere..."

    maybe they try to avoid this person, but as soon as they let them back in, they go back to their old ways. They end up right back where they started.

    "A deep shade of
    horizon gold...
    the constellations remind me I am home."

    someone who really knows you reminds you that this is not you and snaps you out of it.

    "We were lit from the west, our silhouettes,
    yet a sight of industrial-ness"
    as the silence wins over every word."

    the evil/influential person was summoned to influence you with their industrial-ness (the definition of industry that i thought fit best - the people or companies engaged in a particular kind of commercial enterprise. commercial people use advertisements to make you want to buy what they're selling.) You're speechless at how go the offer sounds, how could you pass it up?

    "What am I supposed to think about wondering round inside out...?"

    the person being influenced doesn't even know what to think anymore because they aren't themselves anymore

    "Patterns don't feel right,"

    this line kinda speaks for itself. what the person being influenced is doing doesn't feel right.

    "still speaking like you know what I'm all about."

    not sure about this one either haha.

    well that's what i got out of the song. the reason i love VE so much is because you really have to decode the words and lyrics.

    ps. i know the 1st and 2nd persons or whatever are all wrong and the "they's" are confusing but english is not my best subject and it's 2:30am and i did not feel like putting person 1 person 2 blah blah blah. i wanted to write this all out while it was fresh in my mind.

    General CommentYou play my nerves, like stings, all upside-down.

    She feels like the longer she trusts someone the more she’s being used and turned against herself, like a puppet. The person controlling her motions controls it all.

    Try to keep straight, my limbs are bonding now.

    She feels tied up, stuck within her own body. She trying to stay calm and keep going, but the person can read her, tell what she’s thinking, and she doesn’t like it.

    Since a few April’s ago, endless chase to send away this.

    Since she’s met this person, nothing has been right. She’s been hopelessly trying to keep her life normal and send this thing away, but it’s nothing but an endless chase.

    Tireless persistence of taste.

    She’s tired but keeps trying, because she’s been through this before. But even in her persistence she doesn’t want to go through it again
    .
    With a touch of your words, I saw the devil, sneak between my fingers.

    With this person talking to her and trying to convince her that her beliefs and thoughts are wrong, she saw herself begin to turn corrupt. She didn’t mean for it to happen, but the fact that she is easily angered with this, she’s becoming someone she doesn’t want to be, even though she has to act that way to get anywhere.

    Much too familiar.

    This has happened before, but it was as big of a problem as before because she had people to back her up, but now she has no one

    With a touch of your words, I’ve learned to reverse, but it’s gotten me nowhere.

    With the person talking to her and trying to convince her that her beliefs and thought are wrong, she tried to fix herself before she went totally evil. Being the good girl isn’t doing anything to help her cause though, and not being mean and taking control isn’t helping at all.

    A deep shade of horizon gold, the constellations remind me I am home.

    She know she’s still on the right track because the sun is still rising and setting as always. Even if she hasn’t moved on or fixed anything other people have. She still home, she still has herself.

    We were lit from the west our silhouettes, yet a sight of industrial-ness, as the silence wins over every word.

    She’s remembering back. The sun sets in the west, another day has gone on and she’s still moving on, trying to go on with her life, our silhouettes being her shadow, but she’s remembering someone else who used to be with her. A sight of industrial-ness: things are changing, nothing is staying the same as it used to be. But she remembers that person who used to be with her, and she much prefers the silence then the words the person used to force into her mouth.

    What am I supposed to think about wandering round inside-out?

    She’s not really sure what to think, and at this moment kind of wants someone to tell her what to do, so that she doesn’t continuously wandering around with her feelings showing instead of her skin hiding the emotions she is really feeling in her brain.

    Patterns don’t feel right, still speaking like you know what I’m all about.

    The cycle she’s gotten herself into doesn’t satisfy her anymore. She’s tired of the same old stuff. That person doesn’t know anything about her anymore, and she’s ready to win over this person.
