"Pressure Zone" as written by and Beck Hansen....
The countryside is overgrown
There's a lighthouse in her soul
Wrestling with butcher girls
She don't ever change her clothes
Masterpieces liquidate in fertile tears
I could sleep inside her bones
A hundred years

Lizards in the pressure zone
Mother knows it's only a phase

Cherry gardens feel like ice
Hazard lights from her past
Underneath the broken bridge
Hookers hug illegal dads
Masterpieces liquidate in fertile tears
I could sleep inside her bones
A hundred years

Lizards in the pressure zone
Mother knows it's only a phase

    General CommentI think this song might have more to do with abortions/bad sexual encounters or something of that nature (if you have to take it down the sexual interpretation road).

    Basically she's a girl who acts tough but deep down is much more vulnerable. She's avoiding sex for a specific reason in her past ("the country side is overgrown," "Cherry gardens feel like ice/ Hazard lights from her past"). "Lizards in the pressure zone" makes me think maybe she's fighting with her instincts as well, since it gives me an image of squirming over an important decision. Underneath it all there might be a traumatic reason ("hookers hug illegal dads" "fertile tears"). But the narrator still loves her, despite her coldness, and deep down seems to understand.

    General CommentThis may seem like a shot in the dark, but it's all I got:

    "The countryside is overgrown
    There's a lighthouse in her soul
    Wrestling with butcher girls
    She don't ever change her clothes"

    I think this line's about an attractive girl that acts snobby, but deep down in her there's a good person.

    "Masterpieces liquidate in fertile tears
    I could sleep inside her bones
    A hundred years"

    I think this line may be about her being raped. Beck, or whoever's point of view this song is from is making a joke of it saying, "Snobs like her change after something traumatic happens to them like this rape. Then when he says, "I could sleep inside her bones a hundred years." he's saying, "Wow, her vagina is great.!"

    "Lizards in the pressure zone
    Mother knows it's only a phase."

    "Lizard" in this line is being reffered to as a bad,sly person. "Mother knows it's only a phase." means the guy that raped her is saying "She'll get over what happened to her."

    "Cherry gardens feel like ice"- to this girl, something as beautiful as a cherry garden like sex, becomes scary, or cold like ice.

    "Hazard lights from her past
    Underneath the broken bridge
    Hookers hug illegal dads"

    Either this girl is/was a hooker or knows other hookers that are having sex with men illegally. This reminds her of rape.

    Sorry if the song still seems unclear. I'm only 13...
