"Explode" as written by Peter Anders Svensson and Nina Persson....
Ease your trouble
We'll pay them double
Not to look at you for a while
And you rely on
What you get high on
And you last just as long as it serves you
Explode or implode
Explode or implode
We will take care of it
Yes we will carry you
Cause you're deserted
What's good you hurt it
And kills you it keeps you alive
So give it up
In a world of puppets
It's a shame what they do to us all
Can we do anything for you now ?

    General CommentYou're right!! I think The Cardigans should have more people in here!! I think that it's talking about some kind of like a drug addiction thing-At least I think it is...but anyway, this song is good!!

    General CommentThis song is so pretty. It's really beautiful - the cardigans don't get enough recognition on here =) some of their songs are so bright and refreshing and some are just plain gorgeous.

    General Commentsounds like she is talking about a friend who has a drug addiction and is offering to help them kick the habit. she even reassures them that things will work out (We'll pay them double
    Not to look at you for a while)... now here is where i get a little torn, is she talking about a significant other or a friend?

    And you rely on
    What you get high on
    And you last just as long as it serves you

    "you last"...sexually or personality wise?

    General CommentI too think it's about someone close to her with an addiction and she's offering help.

    "Ease your trouble
    We'll pay them double"

    You have to take responsibility for your feelings and thoughts and learn how to deal with them. Otherwise they'll return to you twice as hard, cause now there's the addiction too. So "we'll pay them double".

    General CommentI think the speaker's an enabler. "To ease your trouble, we'll pay them double." It's a co-dependant relationship, because the subject of the song "last[s] just as long as it serves" them. Incredibly beautiful, but definitely a dark song.

    General Commenti think this song is about someone who just got so sick of the world and basically the cardigans is telling this person that even if he/she burst out in anger or burst in an implode way (drug/alcohol/cutter) theyre gonna still standing beside this person, (we will carry you).
    amazing song
