I am the speaker but what is responsibility?
This is beg of you, build me brick upon brick
High tides, waves of hypocrisy

I didn't think the clock struck more than twelve times
I decided to name her insomnia

"Her teeth (show) like white seeds in a scarlet fruit"
This I must tell you, old friend, fear beauty
This is meager, this is feeble
She was only a fiction and my creation

    General Commenther teeth, like white seeds in a scarlet fruit.

    i dont know why you guys dont know it

    its the teeth of a woman and the scarlet fruit are her lips, deep red lipstick and white teeth, see the picture

    its oscar wilde, from the picture of dorian gray, which is about lust in a sense of seeking new pleasures. good and bad, and about vanity

    i believe this song is about lust and beauty . ita about how temptation clouds our judgment and we put an obsession on beauty and that strays you away from how things or a person really is.

    General Comment"her teeth (show) like white seeds in a scarlet fruit"

    I believe that they are talking about Eve biting into the forbidden fruit in the Garden of Eden in the Bible

    is actually a quote from the book "The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde"

    General CommentI don't see what "Her teeth (show) like white seeds in a scarlet fruit" has to do with Adam and Eve, or any of this song for that matter, but everyone has the right to their own opinion.
    I believe that line is saying whoever the subject of this song is (a beautiful woman) has perfectly white teeth that show like white seeds in the reddest (scarlet) of fruit. I'm not too sure what the rest of the song means but if you look at the context of that quote in "The Picture of Dorian Gray" it deals with the death of someone in the novel, I haven't read the book recently enough to remember though

    General CommentI Love This Song!!!!!=]]
    By the way it's
    "This I Beg Of You"
    not This is Beg Of You.

    I agree with it being about Adam and Eve.
    I think it has to do about ho Adam felt for Eve and even though he knew it was wrong to eat the fruit he couldn't resist her beauty.
    when he says "I Decided to Name Her Insomia" I think of him loving her so much he can't sleep because of his feelings.
    IDK that's my take on it.
