"Around the Fur" as written by Chino Camilo Moreno, Chi Cheng, Stephen Carpenter and Abe Cunningham....
Hey vanity, this vile's empty, so are you
Hey glamorous, this vile's not God anymore, yeah

Speak, I don't get it
Should I ignore the fashion
Or go by the book
I don't want it
I just want your eyes fixated on me
Coming back aah
Coming back around the fur

Prostitute, climb back down from the floor
Please don't fuck around and die like this
Cause I love
Her

Speak, I don't get it
Should I ignore the fashion
Or go by the book
I don't want it
I just want your eyes fixated on me
Coming back aah
Coming back around the fur

Fur, the fur
Speak speak you're so bad to me
I don't want to get dressed over anyway
Come on have some fun
You're a liar
You're a liar and I don't care about aah

    General CommentThe fur coat interpretation IS a metaphor, and it's the way Chino described the song in an interview. He actually got the idea for this song while looking at a fur coat in a store.

    It's actually half a metaphor, and half an example. On the outside it's beautiful and soft, but on the inside ("around the fur") it's the dried out skin of a dead animal. He's comparing the fur coat to vain people--pretty and nice looking on the outside, but dead and ugly on the inside. That's what he means by "around the fur." He's talking about what's on the other side of the fur coat.

    "Should I ignore the fashion or go buy the book?" This line means just what it sounds like. He's asking himself if he should do what's "normal" and accepted, or be creative and do his own thing at the chance of being ridiculed.

    "I don't want it, I just want your eyes fixated on me." This one means what it sounds like, too. He decides that he doesn't want all that glamorous crap, and that he wants people to see him for who he is as a person.

    Panochita, you shouldn't call people stupid shits if you don't know what you're talking about. I'd call you a bitch, but I'm a nice guy, so I won't.

    General CommentIt's about how infatuated he was with hollywood and the overall glamour of being a rock star. Then, after a while, he realized it's not all that it's cracked up to be. That's what I think.

    General CommentIt's about how fur coats are really nice on the outside but on the inside they're really shitty looking which is how Chino sees some people

    General CommentIt's about vanity, and fashion, and all that shallow shit that everyone's so fucking infatuated with nowadays. Great song, but that shit makes me sick to my stomach.
