Does it matter why?
Does it matter where?
If you market yourself for blood,
How do you come back?

She sees the red at night.
No one knows.
She sees the red at night.
No one.

If she chooses pills,
If she chooses gas,
Does she profit to fill her lungs
Or to hold her breath?

She sees the red at night.
No one knows.
She sees the red at night.
No one.

Does it matter why?
Does it matter where?
If she knows that she’s so fucked up,
How does she come back?

    Song MeaningA "die slow" is a nickname for a person with AIDS. A repeated line in the song is that no one knows she has it either. I think it's about people who contract HIV but are unable to stop fucking other people at parties out of spite. She doesn't care if she gives it to guys or girls, as long as she spreads her misery. There's no curing yourself; "how do you come back?"

    General CommentAmazing song, but absolutely brutal live!

    I was fortunate enough to see them a while back. I, in an idiot-savant flash of brilliance, decided to be in the pit. A mere chorus into this song I found myself with a slight nosebleed, missing a shoe.

    One of the best shows I've ever been to.
