"Octane Twisted" as written by Colin Edwin Balch, Richard Barbieri, Gavin Richard Harrison and Steven John Wilson....
We go following sorrow to feel your
Blood spilling out of the reeds there
Give me a sign I can breathe air
Blood flowing out of the stream there

(give me something new please, something I can love)

    General CommentIt goes like this, so says the Lyric booklet!

    We go following sorrow to free your
    Blood spilling out of the reeds there
    Blood spilling out of the stream there
    Give me a sign I can breathe air

    give me something new please, something I can love

    General CommentAny ideas on the meaning? I guess Ill start: Octane is a kind of fuel so it could be about a car, the song references blood flowing out of reeds and a river, so an sutomobile accident that occurred near a river?

    General CommentI read somewhere (I believe it was an interview with Steven, I'm not sure though) that it was based on a story he heard on the news about a family that went to go hang out at the river and found the body of a murdered girl.

    Song MeaningWell, here's my take on it, I know from reading interview with Steven that he doesn't write in a linear fashion and even more so with The Incident. I also know he uses Babicz Guitars and they have produced a wonderful version call the OCTANE, which has a unique system of lowering and raising the strings over the strings for intonation setiings. The settings are adjdusted by "twisting" an allen key at the back of the guitar where the neck meets the body. I just wonder if the song title is a reference to the track before the lyrics were written/recorded and it just stuck??? Octane Twisted could also be a reference to the production methods used post recording...anyway...Enough pontification, anyone agree???
