I'm caught in excitement, an unusual spell
It's pure in a sense and abstract from our lives
We talked a lot, abstraction came into focus
Her tales of the tour and a hardcore life
Were unmatched by the pop subculture in mine
We talked a lot and soon it would come into focus
There's no time for fighting, any sex is personal
Information not appealing to me in any sense at all
Is it wrong to think I'm a traditional man?
I'd hope I'd be up for an annexation of that
Yeah, a part of me can deal with this open relations
But "concept" to "do" is like "yes" to a "goal"
It's unclear how it happens
Maybe we'll act how we planned it
We sure talked a lot and soon it came into focus
There's no time for fighting, any sex is personal
Keep your head above the meaning
And devotion doesn't swell
Any sexual encounter adds an awful twisting touch
It's like scamming in the 90's but getting used to this is hard

    General CommentI wonder what he yells out between ""...and soon in it would come into focus..." and "...theres no time for fighting..."? to me it sounds like "that's right, to fart face that's right! BONUS!"

    General CommentNice, bilnit. ;)

    The song is about exactly what it is saying. Sex IS personal. It should be only between those in the act and no one needs to know any details. Sex is a beautiful thing between two people. And that's it.

    General Commenti don't pretend to understand every line in this song, but i always thought that the "sex is personal" idea meant "personal" as in you had an emotional connection with your partner no matter what, not "personal" as in you don't tell other people about it, hence the lines "Yeah, a part of me can deal with this open relations
    But "concept" to "do" is like "yes" to a "goal"" and "Keep your head above the meaning
    And devotion doesn't swell
    Any sexual encounter adds an awful twisting touch". just a shot at it.
