"Destro's Secret" as written by and Benjamin Allen Weinman Dimitri Minakakis....
And now I'll hang my skin
This skin
Transparent words of sin
My love so sweet
Your name loos so good distorted
Like that
Scrape off some skin
Revealing, crud
An hour before
I'm walking through the rain
And scratching on her window screen
I've come to cut cupid's heart out
I've come to take your breath away
Sun dripped devil scratched out my eyes
Break the door down
Knock the door down
Angel I can't let you in.

    General CommentThis is dillinger's most powerful song. "Sundrip Devil Scratched Out My Eyes" such a startling poetic genius right there. All the lyrics just remind me of some surreal nightmare sequence in which a kid tries to win a girl over by destroying cupid altogether. Just Devestating stuff here

    General Commentthis song is simple and not allegorical in any way...people think way too much about fucking songs.

    simply, it is about a boy that is crazy about a girl, I mean crazy. Trying to force love on her. I kind of get a more sinister feel as if she does not love him back, no one will ever have her.

    General CommentI get the impression that Dimitri wanted to imply a rape with the lyrics, but I'm never sure; he's not in the band anymore anyway =P

    But seriously, the terrible irony of the lines "I've come to cut cupid's heart out; I've come to take your breath away," if they were in reference to rape, would be absolutely perfect.

    General CommentUmm definitely not about rape.....Dillinger's not that kind of band....its actually about someone who is superficially good and sweet, but inside is a traitor or a bitch or something along those lines...

    General Commentthat def. reminds me of "sugar coated sour"....but then again i guess if you look deeper the meanings may not be that similar.....

    General Commentit's about vampires. i would guess anyway. i'm always suprised at how many people jump to "it's about a girl..." conclusions. DEP isn't *that* emo. heh.
