Can you lick my wounds please
Can you make it numb
And kill the pain like cortisone
And grant me intimacy
How'll we split your chromosomes

Yeah, more sweet narcosis
Yeah, more sweet narcosis (I'll turn a stone I'll find you)
Yeah, more sweet narcosis (I'll turn a stone I'll find you)

I turn a stone I'll find you there
Into reflected light I'll stare
You blind me with flash bulbs
And puzzle me with syllables

Back to sleep
Yeah more sweet narcosis (I'll turn a stone I'll find you)
Yeah more sweet narcosis (I'll turn a stone I'll find you)
Yeah more sweet narcosis (I'll turn a stone I'll find you)

My heads between my knees again
Got needle set to zero
And you can shoot me hurricanes
Don't spare me the details

Yeah more sweet narcosis (I'll turn a stone I'll find you)
Yeah more sweet narcosis (I'll turn a stone I'll find you)
Yeah more sweet narcosis

More sweet
More sweet
Iconography fucks with me
You look great in bloodstains

    General Commentsomething about paparazzi, I'm sure.
    he says 'grant me intamacy', 'I'll turn a stone and find you' 'blind me with flashbulbs'...
    'puzzle me with syllables' coudl be pesky reporters.
    in any event, it' seems to be about the drawbacks of being a star. hence the title.


    peace

    General Commentyo duck, i guess you're right
    however, it's funnny to rhink of an MA song which is about paparazzi, isn't it? :)
    anyway, that's just part of the song, it's kind of a montage ("yeah more sweet narcosis...")

    General Commenti have no idea what the meaning of this song could be, although, reading what you have posted gives me some insight into what it could.

    i love the strings (and synth) melodies. almost tribal, almost middle eastern, - Totally Massive Attack Material.

    anyway,
    piece.

    General Commentone of those toxic yet utterly addictive relationships one can't help but stay in. 'antistar', to me, is about a dysfunctional, all-consuming romance - the singer is addicted to the other ("can you make it numb? / and kill the pain like cortisole") in spite of the ultimately destructive nature of their relationship (hence "iconography / fucks with me / you look great in bloodstains").

    mostly i just adore the strings and the beats in this song - sweeping, anguished, a perfect closing track for '100th window'.

    General CommentMaybe it is how paparazzi turns a star insane. How he seeks drug to cope with the depression and pressure of being a star. Just a thought. Amazing song. The syth kind of reminds me of the Banshees from Halo..lol.
