"DNA" as written by and Aviv Geffen....
Welcome to my DNA
Stupidly, you want to stay
With my DNA

You cannot fix what you get
Things that I try to forget
In my DNA

Can you forgive me
For things that I've said?
Things that I've done?
Go now, and never come back

We've all got expiry dates
Trust me, there's no getaway
From my DNA

Wires of sadness and pain
Always remaining the same

Disarmed by the music
There's bombs in my head
You'll always get burned
Go now, and never come back

My deadly venom
Soon I'll be dead
Go now, my love
Go now, and never come back

    General CommentYes, Aviv Geffen wrote every song on the album except Waving I believe. If there are any homosexual overtones in this song, they've gone over my head, even after multiple listenings.

    I feel like this song is describing Geffen's loneliness. I catch that vibe over and over with this album. These lyrics just make me feel trapped in my own body, and all of our struggles with mortality and aspects of life that we can't choose or change.

    General CommentIn my personal view, it's talking about personality, maybe Aviv or Him/her it could be both not sure, it's describing that "the person" have a uneasy going, ogre-esque, different and complicated personality that could not be changed so easily b/c it's on "the person's genes"...something like that...It's happening to me now, I'd met a girl recently and we're involve in some kind of romance, but the girl it's so complicated, have a strong and demanding personality, get offended about everything and could not have a conversation about 15 mins without wanting to discuss and fight, for me, I've been passive and comprehensive but, she once told me: "I'm daughter of [insert name here] I'm NOT AN EASY GOING PERSON!" it reminds me that, it's like she's telling me what this song describe "Welcome to my DNA" "I'm like this way, accept me, or leave"...

    General CommentI've heard that this song is Steven coming out of the closet. And I don't mean that in a joking/trolling way. Can anybody confirm this?

    General CommentI'm not so sure about that Aniland. Do you have a source? The reason I doubt it is the massive amount of breakup songs Wilson has written, with some of them containing "She" or "Her" etc.

    General CommentIt's about how he lost his girlfriend, but also about experiences with drugs, but then he found god, and oh, there's a dark secret too.
