"Glass Danse" as written by and Baechle Baechle....
Feel the vapor pressure drop as the dark
steam pours out the entrance
Real cold world is swirling in to a club that keeps the life world out
Where every sense seems deathly weak from the frozen time you spent in transit.
The glass dance world flickers on and the low end thaws your anxious body

Maybe I feel detached, I may just look too shy
It's a disinterest not that I'm a timid guy
I call them bodies but, they are attentive too
I feel the social glare, I feel the attitude

Watch as mirrors clear themselves with the breath of frigid air that eased in
Made up babies all rotate as a siren spins a beam of amber
Time sliced beat by beat in a row, in a club, in a line, in the city
The glass danse world flickers on because the cycle happens enough:

A baby fall out warm, it's screaming for its life
An infant tries to dance, as it grows up then dies

    General Commenti love the beat of this song... especially when it goes into the "maybe i feel detached..." and "a baby falls out warm..." parts. it makes me dance... which is a very difficult thing for a song to do

    General CommentI swear to you when I first heard this song I was fuckin gettin down within a matter of seconds. Normally I ain't into this dark techno rock but The Faint makes it happen mother fucker! Even the lyrics were real good which was surprising. Granted, it does sound like porno music, but it whips that leopard's ass.

    General CommentBut what do you guys think this means? Its imagery is awesome. "Made up babies"-- are they dismissive of ravers, or just these particular ones? I sense a parallel being made between club life and the life cycle, but I can't tell if their is an overwhelming sense of negativity towards ravers (especially since this song sounds so electronic). any help?

    General Commentthe music isn't very sad, but the tempo makes it sadder. and the lyrics are just the most heartbreaking thing i hate myself ever wrote. i just cried while listening to this.

    General Commenti didn't mean to make that last comment for this song. it was a mistake. i thought i was still on the "less than nothing" page.

    General CommentI honestly think this song does pertain to ravers. Its saying how the world inside a dance club becomes different through an ecstacy trip and these are the surreal things that are taking place in the mind of a raver. It explains how the outside world isn't as dark and gloomy and alive as the glass danse world which is composed of people living inside the music and the crowd and taking in their hallucinations with these elements.
