You are shining in perfect love
My world lives in these jars
Downward, downward we'll cast ourselves
He'll call, "This blade here is my best friend"

Sweetheart
It's down to the shakes I feel
Sweetheart
But you never cries out
Sweetheart
Plainfield is 'home-sweet-home'
Sweetheart
Will they ever find out?

I am spinning in perfect time
With you next to my skin
Drums pound as I yell at the sky
This house is furnished by you and I

Sweetheart
Its down to the shakes I feel
Sweetheart
But you never cries out
Sweetheart
Plainfield is 'home-sweet-home'
Sweetheart
Will they ever find out?

But she hears my name
I'll wear her shame
This town has bad dreams
But no one can hear our screams

Over and over and over and over again

Over and over and over and over again

Sweetheart
Its down to the shakes I feel
Sweetheart
Cos you never cries out
Sweetheart
Plainfield is 'home-sweet-home'
Sweetheart
Will they ever find out?

    General CommentDied Pretty are an Australian band, which perhaps makes the meaning behind the song a little stranger (or at least my interpretation of the song).

    I think the giveaway is the line, "Plainfield is 'home-sweet-home', which is the town that Ed Gein was raised in/near.

    The rest of the lyrics allude to this possibility:

    "My world lives in these jars" - Ed Gein reportedly kept organs in jars

    "Downward, downward we'll cast ourselves" - the downward spiral

    "He'll call, "This blade here is my best friend"" - Ed Gein skinned most of his victims

    "With you next to my skin" - Ed Gein's human 'suit' that he made and would wear

    "This house is furnished by you and I" - Ed Gein reportedly fashioned household objects out of skin

    "I'll wear her shame" - a flesh suit would do that to you

    "This town has bad dreams" - Plainfield certainly did

    "But no one can hear our screams" - true in many, different ways

    Anyway, that's my interpretation of the song, but who knows if it may not have anything to do with Ed Gein or Plainfield.
