"Hearts/Wires" as written by and Frank Mirelez Delgado Sergio Vega....
Nothing can save me now
It's what I believe
The slit in the sky when you left
Is all I see

Nothing to sing about
I've bared all my leaves
No vision of dreams about you
Came true for me

Cut through
This razor wire
And died on your heart
Writhe 'till the end

Stuck with illusion now
I drown in your sea
I hope that you first save yourself
And then come for me

Cut through
This razor wire
And died on your heart
Writhe to the end
Break through
Collect the wires
And writhe in your heart
Writhe 'till the end

Away, away, away
Down deep into your veins
All the way
All the way
Down deep in your heart
All the way
All the way, away

Cut through (away)
This razor wire (away)
Writhe 'till the end
Break through (away)
Collect the wire (away)
Died on your heart
Writhe 'till the end

    General CommentIf I were to pick it apart in a more literal sense by my own speculation, I'd say he is distraught and in pain because he can't connect with someone or they're dead. They also could be an addict taken under by the drug and the only way they can connect again is to break through the razor wire (pain) and collect the wire (connection to him). To writhe is to be uncomfortable or contorted. There is much pain in breaking through an addiction but if you writhe to the end, you can finally connect to your loved ones.

    My InterpretationTo me this song is about after someone you love dies, turning to drugs (needles) to deal with pain and make it go away. Perhaps this person who died was themselves a drug addict so you feel you need to recreate the atmosphere that they themselves were once immersed in order to feel closer to them (endure their same life of drugs and strife). In a sense, you end up likely killing yourself in order to be able to come to terms with the loss. Furthermore, the pain of losing them can only be resolved by you in some way causing your own self pain.

    General CommentIt seems like this song is about the death of a loved one and feeling hopeless about it.

    General CommentHearts and Wires(hypodermic needles/medical monitoring equipment). Someone dies, they collect the wires. Someone uses drugs, they collect the wires.

    It's about waves of the same situation.

    The slit in the sky when you left, is all I see.

    Someone died, it's all he can think about.
    Also, a heroin user will nod off, only look up at the sky, unable to move but look thru slits in their eyes.

    Also, someone in a coma, can't really move, but stares up at the sky thru slits of their eyes.

    The song is layered with these stages all thru it.

    Ultimately, he needs a way out, and shoves that needle down deep into his veins, all the way.

    The drug says you're mine till the end.

    It's dark and I think it continues with (L)MIRL, where they make the choice to kill themselves.

    General CommentLook guys, I'm not tryin ta be rude, but wtf!!! The song is CLEARLY about Chi!!! One love Chi. And to whom ever thinks the lyrics have been changed, Your wrong, Chino has a thick California surfer boy accent, so the draw in his voice can sound like something else is being said. The only time I've heard Chino changing the lyrics to his songs, is in their early days and he we become to intoxicated to even walk much less remember his own lyrics..lol

    Song MeaningI forget if it was Stef or Chino who said this, but I read that it was inspired by the movie The Silence of the Lamb. Like a Wild Bull character

    General CommentAnother hit from Deftones hands down!
    Doesnt it sound a little Cantrell-ish in the intro? I'm sure Jerry played this part too, Tho they only mention him on Phantom Bride.

    General CommentI do not think these are the correct lyrics. Correcting them lends a whole new interpretation, which for me has to do with the pain of finding someone you know who would be your soulmate but the love is unrequited/unreturned. The person of interest has been hurt too much, has wrapped their heart in razor wire metaphorically. He wants to release her from this (find a way, a way out), and (metaphorically we hope) consume her heart and do some writhing about.

    Here is what I believe they are:

    Nothing can save me now
    It's what I believe
    The slit in the sky when you left
    Is all I see

    Nothing to sing about
    I've bared all my leaves
    No vision OR dreams about you
    Came true for me

    Cut through
    This razor wire
    And DINE on your heart
    MINE 'till the end

    Stuck with illusion now
    I drown in your sea
    I hope that you first save yourself
    And then come for me

    Cut through
    This razor wire
    And DINE on your heart
    Mine til the end

    Break through
    CLIP the wires
    And writhe in your heart
    MINE til the end

    Away, A WAY OUT, away
    Down deep into your veins
    All the way
    All the way
    Down deep in your heart
    All the way
    All the way, A WAY

    Cut through (A WAY OUT)
    This razor wire (A WAY)
    Mine 'till the end
    Break through (A WAY)
    CLIP the wires (A WAY OUT)
    DINE on your heart
    MINE til the end

    General CommentThis song reminds me of my mother’s passing. She was diagnosed with cancer 3 years ago. In 2016 it took her. I listen to this and I am reminded of how I felt helpless and hopeless. The slit in the sky is her leaving this earth. No vision or dreams coming true is what I wanted for her. To live. The wires were the IVs in her arms. Nothing can save me now is how I felt. She always protected me, always saved me. This song means more now than when I first heard it. It’s my mom’s song. I cry whenever I hear it. I think this song is about loss. Finding a away to cope with that loss. Maybe I’m wrong but that’s what I get out of it. May someone else gets it too.
