"Here In My Room" as written by Ben Kenney, Brandon Charles Boyd, Michael Aaron Einziger, Christopher E Kilmore and Jose Anthony Pasillas Ii....
This party is old and uninviting
Participants all in black and white
You enter in full blown technicolor
Nothing is the same after tonight

If the world would fall apart
In a fiction worthy wind
I wouldn't change a thing
Now that you're here

Yeah, love is a verb here in my room
Here in my room, here in my room

You enter and close the door behind you
Now show me the world as seen from the stars
If only the lights would dim a little
I'm weary of eyes upon my scars

Pink tractor beam into your incision
Head spinning as free as dervish's whirl
I came here expecting next to nothing
So thank you for being that kind of girl
That kind of girl
That kind of girl
That kind of girl
That kind of girl
That kind of girl
That kind of girl
That kind of girl
That kind of girl
That kind of girl
That kind of girl

    General CommentHehe, the sliding bass - I was going to comment about how it damn near makes me wet my pants too! They must have done something subconsciously...

    The flanger on the line after that (If only the lights would dim a little) is so pleasing to hear too... one of those that gives you a warm (nice) shiver down your back... so satisfying.

    I thought that this was about sex too, to be honest - it only appeared to be confirmed when I read the first line of the last verse. However, I feel as though it doesn't concentrate on the sex... and only uses that to tell part of the whole story... It's not about the actual lovemaking as such. It's about the connection ( non-physical :P ) between 'the girl' and the 'story teller'.

    The sex is just a chapter of the book, as it were.

    General CommentI agree, I feel this song is about sex. However, why does sex have to portrayed as a negative thing. "Love is a verb here in my room" that means he is in the "action" of being in love. When he says "If the world would fall apart In a fiction worthy wind I wouldn't change a thing Now that you're here" What if that means I wouldn't change anything in my life now that you are here. I think this is a beautiful song that is about the intimacy of sex. Not just about the action. I love this song. I will play it at my wedding.

    General Commenti read ina magazine that it was about him hooking up with someone on tour.. this makes sense with the lines "i came here expecting next to nothing/so thank-you for being that kinda of girl" to me it says i didn't expect to get much action here, but you came along and blew my socks off (pardon the pun).

    General CommentNow how is talking about sex take away from anything at all?

    The story, if followed through literally, is that the narrator has a one-night stand, essentially. Well, maybe not one-night, but we're not going in the future here. The point is that he met this girl for the first tonight and had sex with her because he was bored.

    See, people think that it somehow takes away from Incubus's meaning if that's what it is about, but when you think about it, isn't that exactly how Brandon Boyd would approach the subject? He has a negative outlook on the social world, and although love is something he obviously believes it, wouldn't it be along his lines to use beautiful and meaningful language to describe something utterly meaningless?

    Song MeaningHe's in a chatroom - that is the Black & White participants

    A video chat begins - Technicolor is a video reference..deeper reds greener greens,etc.
    its a Video Chat clearly

    nothing is the same after tonight because he's about to be one of those guys that...WHAT???

    yeah love is a verb (an action) love into action alone watching this webcam wishing his bedbroom lights would dim a little so she doesn't see scars on his exposed body.

    but why is he doing this? His eyes (not penis)is tractor beamed into her incision.


    TO SUMMARIZE HE HAD VIDEO CHAT SEX HE WASN'T EXPECTING BUT YOU GET THE FEELING IT'S WHAT HE WAS AFTER.

    IF YOUR THAT KIND OF GIRL HIT ME UP!!

    now this line "you enter and close the door behind you has 2 interpretations for me

    1. (least likely)they are both young live w/their parents she closes the door for privacy.

    2. (makes better sense) closing the door behind you is a metaphor for private chat room.

    General Commenti've had a lot of talk about the meaning of this song... many say its sex... sex sex sex. i'd be depressed if that's ALL it is. it'sone of the most beautiful songs on earth musically... it's gotta be more!!!! "love is a verb here in my room" verb means action, that's why people think sex, plus "pink tractorbeam into your incision"... but it could also just mean in his room is where he finds his solace with love...

    General CommentThis song is one of the best song on their new album the bass is so moving and i agree with crimsonanclover i wet myself everytime i hear that bass too! also what the song means to me is that there is someone who he favors at a party and he wants them to be in his room to chill hangout or maybe more???? but at the end of the song "thank you for being that kind of girl" says it all you dont have to be a whore to be appriecated by anyone.....

    General CommentMaybe it's a metaphor for how sex can be a manifestation of love in itself? Lol... I dunno, I read the lyrics and I was like "okay, bud, enough with the porn"... But knowing Boyd he's got something up his sleeve for the song. It's too saucy to just be about sex. Oh well. It's still a hell of a song.
