"Cowgirl" as written by Clint Daniels, Carson Chamberlain and Jeff Hyde....
everything (x20)

I'm invisible (x8)

am, an eraser of love (x9)

why don't you call me I feel like flying in two (x3)

I'm invisible (x8)

am, an erazor of love (x16)

why don't you call me I feel like flying in two (x4)

am, an erazor of love (x9)

I scream
I scream
I scream so much
you know what I mean this electric stream
and my tears in league with the
wires and energy and my machine
this is my beautiful dream
I'm hurting no one
hurting no one
hurting no one
hurting no one
I want to give you everything
I want to give you energy
I want to give a good thing
I want to give you everything

everythingeverythingeverythingeverythingeverythingeverythingeverything

in one final scream of love who could climb
this high she looks beautiful like a child
I feel tears
and I want to scream
you know what I mean cause this is hurting no one
am, an erazor of love

hurt the necessary feeling

why don't you call me I feel like flying in two (x4)

am, an erazor of love (x8)

    General Commentmy theory is that it's about the act of sex. karl hyde's lyrics provide enough randomness tho to able to interpret it to other things quite easily but i still think it's about sex

    General Commentnot just sex, but almost sado-masochist sex.....As far as not hurting anyone, I think that is more a defensive stance, like them defending their freaky ways....The beat definitely caters to just about any position outside of missionary....And I always thought the lyric was "And a razor will love" not "an eraser of love"...hmm...

    General CommentIt sounds like surrendering emotional attachment, or even the capacity to become attached, in the name of avoiding messy, human anguish. Or not even that maybe, but a song from the perspective of someone who is trying to rid themselves of emotional dependence. I can't really articulate why I think this but the difference between an eraser and a razor is that an eraser leaves its subject cleaner than before and a razor, properly applied, just makes things messy, which leads me to believe, along with the last line "hurt--the necessary feeling," that he doesn't ever accomplish his goal, for better.

    General CommentI'm sorry, but I personally think you are all off beat. I think Karl's singing about heartbreak; sounds like the song of a guy who's girl left him and he's having an introspective moment about how he feels at the moment.

    I'm invisible - He doesn't think he has meaning with her anymore

    Why don't you call me - (Self explanatory by my interpretation)

    My beautiful dream - His idea of what could've been perfect love with her?

    An eraser of love - Perhaps it's his fault and he feels guilt?

    Just my two cents, hope you all see my points....

    General CommentIn my opinion, it's about a guy who's in love with a girl, and they're hurting each other. It's like it's the only way. The guy feels guilty about it and wishes he was able not to hurt her : "this is my beautiful dream... i'm hurting no one". He feels invisible and thinks he's only able to destroy love (an eraser of love). But he truly loves her (i wanna give you everything). He may have done something bad to the girl and that could be the reason why she doesn't call him back. The guy feels so bad that he needs to scream, thinking that at least, it's hurting no one...
    An impossible love story to me.

    General CommentI thought it was "And any rays are of love" rather than "Am an eraser of love"

    General CommentI always thought it was about been about being gay and the closet.

    "I'm invisible" - If you're not in the know, you won't have a clue who I am, I am hidden from the straight world who has only the vaguest idea about the gay lifestyle.

    "...and a razor of love" - The contemporary gay lifestyle is a tightrope; on one side it's a devil may care attitude, chemsex, and promiscuity; on the other it's find a partner to settle with, and try to integrate with straight society by mimicking hetero lifestyle. Either way you play your hand, it's easy to get cut.

    "Why don't you come out - feel like flying in two" - Out yourself and your world will explode outwards. Can you handle it?

    My InterpretationIn the past I've always heard this as "eraser of love" but have just noticed it as "eraser of luck". It's hard to tell with final aspirants and studio mix but hard to miss the -k once you notice. It really changes the direction of the song.
