This could be the sound of me tearing
into your flesh from a distance
opening fresh wounds
for a peek

And this could be the sound of me breaking
into your room late at night
slitting your throat
and cutting off your dick

'Cause everyone I know
is too comfortable with thier lives
to ever be a part of change

And everyone I know
is leaving for the weekend
with tickets to the game
everybody sounds the same

all dirty
all dirty

la la la la la la la

    General CommentI think the lyrics of this song are pretty simple. They're saying that everyone's life is so routine and normal, and describing what it would be like if you were to get murdered at night.

    General Commentpretty upbeat for such a morbid song, but that makes the unicorns special.

    Also, it's showing you, that if you were to get murdered tonight, your tickets to the game are now quite worthless.

    General Commentpretty much, i think that the song is trying to critique the vapidness and conformity found everywhere around; everyone is concerned about completely trivial issues ie - "tickets to the game" and they don't even think twice about it. the first two paragraphs could be about the desire to rid the world of all of those conformists, "cutting off your dick" linking to the song title, meaning that the aforementioned conformists are the masculine - those who struggle to appear manly/macho, with the process of emasculation representing a yearning to rid these people of their fakeness.

    General CommentFun fact: The melody of the song is from a piano instrumental, which was written and recorded by Alden Ginger, (one of the members) I believe.

    General Commentit's "tickets to their planes"

    because i believe this song is about a certain member *cough* alden*cough* announcing his homosexuality to his prospective "partner"
    but he denies his love and says he's not gay, and everyone he knows feel uncomfortable with the whole situation, and they leave for a bit, like out of town. and out of passion he thinks about "slitting your throat, and cutting off your dick" it's mainly about confusion and the human nature of fearing change, or things that are different

    General Commentthe title explains this song.

    it's about emasculating the masculine!

    ridding of the male stereotype.

    My OpinionWhen I first heard this song, I was very surprised to find a Unicorns song that I could relate to, although it turns out the meaning is quite different from what I had thought in the first place.
    Before, it sounded like something I would think. I'm sort of violent and hate many of the people I'm forced to be around, which is why the first two paragraphs seemed to make so much sense.
    The last part of the song made a lot of sense as well; the singer made it sound a bit like he was left out of the "reindeer games", the only one not to be leaving town for the weekend and just staying home (although not upset by this, he still seems a bit like he's looking down on the others).

    I know the meaning is different, but if you think about the lyrics literally, it seems to relate to any odd man out.
