"Breed" as written by Lauren Christy and Gary Clark....
Spoken like a souvenir
Touch all of your childhood fears
Keep them at a gentle pace
Closer now to feel their heat

Somebody says, I love you
All those years you never knew
All the things that I could do
I keep them in a hidden place
So I can rub them in your face

Somebody says, Somebody Says, Somebody says
I made you (I made you, I made you)

Breed! Breed on your own!
You're always alone
You suffering clone

Maybe you're not good enough
Good enough to make me blush
So many reasons I can find
To kill this little clone of mine
I hold your grace
Like a broken vase
You've been replaced
'Cause I made you

Somebody says, Somebody says
Breed! Breed on your own
You're always alone
You suffering clone
(I made you)

Breed, breed on your own
You're always alone
You suffering clone
Somebody says, I love you
Somebody says, I love you

    General Commenti think this might mean meeting somebody, and they say I love you, but you dont love them. so you're telling them to fuck off. and maybe liking them at first, then you got to know them, and you didnt like them so you could expose all their secrets they've scared. maybe

    General Commentsounds to me like this song is talking about a guy she really liked....wanted to fuck, and people were saying she loved him....people were saying she had influenced him a bunch to turn him into something else "somebody says i made you"

    but she gets rejected, despite all her hidden "talents", and she revels in rubbing her good qualities in his face so he's jealous and realizes what he's turned down. she says "maybe you're not good enough - good enough to make me blush."

    but since the person she's molded into her perfect mate doesn't want her now that they've reached their perfection, she says whatever because she can just make another.

    General CommentThis is one of my fav songs. The intro is cut from a 'Planet of the Apes' scene. I think the lyrics are two fold. Between two close friends, or between lovers. Normally one would think of a clone as being the same sex, so perhaps a younger sibling, or stalker. I don't think most people show all their cards in a relationship on average.

    Song MeaningHonestly, this may sound sort of sick and twisted but I always thought it was a song about a failed relationship that led to an abortion. That being said, I remember feeling very uncomfortable listening to it for a while. Still a good song though.

    My InterpretationThey broke up, she has an idealized image of him inside her that she's still in love with and having a relationship with because she feels alone and is not yet over the relationship.
