I see people going down
All gods people going down
And I should not be alone
And I should be on my phone
Yes I should be on my phone
Yes I should be on my phone

I'll go where that apple goes
I touch with an apple touch

I see people
Candy people

I'm sowing seeds
I'm sowing seeds

I feel as sharp as a carving knife
So I feel in love for the very last time
I'm sick of the beating by everyone
I'm sick of the beating by everyone
I want peace
I want peace
I want peace
I want peace

I'm sowing seeds
I'm sowing seeds
I'm sowing seeds

I'm sowing seeds
I'm sowing seeds

    General CommentYou're all way off base here; it has nothing to do with rubbing one out. The fundamental theme of the entire album is the love affair with drugs and fitting in. Just about every song is dripping with metaphors about drugs. This song in particular is centered on a young person trying to fit in, but struggling with what it takes to do so, i.e. drugs and partying.

    "I see people going down
    All gods people going down
    And I should not be alone
    And I should be on my phone
    Yes I should be on my phone
    Yes I should be on my phone"

    People going down is referencing the falling into sin, which is later reinforced by the apple references (Adam and Eve giving in to temptation). "I Should not be alone" is the desire to be in the group, and the "on the phone" lines are pointing at the connection to those in the group.

    "I'll go where that apple goes
    I touch with an apple touch"

    These lines are simply saying that he is choosing to give into the temptation and become one of them.

    "Candy People" is identifying who the people are. Drugs are often referred to as candy, and it has a double meaning in that it is a way of expressing the hedonism associated with the people.

    So finally, the term "sowing seeds" is what I believe is leading people to believe the song is about a stroke. This is actually a reference to him starting into the drug lifestyle and falling completely into it. He is sowing the seeds, which will blossom into what he wants to be, which is to be like the people around him

    General CommentI refuse to accept that this song is merely about "having a wank". It think this song is far more heartfelt, and far less superficial than that.

    General CommentI thought it was about relationships. Like, "I should be on my phone" instead of being alone? And the whole sowing-seeds-of-friendship idea?

    Maybe that was just me.

    General CommentYes, but what is he doing alone? Touching with an apple touch and sowing seeds ie having a wank on his own, looking at the people outside

    General CommentAnyone ever notice how similar this song is to Just Like Honey? It's almost the exact same.

    I think Timere242 pretty much hit the nail on the head regarding the track's meaning.
