    General CommentSome heavy sex-related lyrics, 'in and out just like a knife would tax the flesh and leave a cheap wound', not sure what point he's making but they are some intense lyrics!

    General Commenttwo opinions from me....
    it could be a song about someone letting you down or breaking your heart;
    but i also kind of thought like it may have been about having to look a certain way to be considered beautiful in societys eyes- more or less, SEX SELLS

    General CommentThis song is too underrated. It's about a guy who walks in on his girlfriend cheating on him, but it can be broadened to just betrayal in general. He paints this act of betrayal like a crime and him walking in on it is like stumbling in on a forensic scene.

    "In your memory not so gentle, perversify slash sentimental." He mentions "memory" twice. This is him referring to all the memories they had together that now seem so pointless.

    "Caught between and caught without." The girlfriend was caught in the act.

    "I'm your failure not your failure now." He's beginning to doubt himself. Was he not good enough? But it doesn't matter now because they are through. She doesn't have to deal with this "failure" anymore.

    "In and out just like a knife would, tax the flesh and leave a cheap wound." Obviously sex, but he portrays it like a crime; makes it seem evil.

    "Fucked and fucking love and lay, congenitally fractured any way." More about sex, betrayal, and how messed up the situation is to him. His heart is broken.

    "unclipped, unclean, this forensic scene's all played out. The defense rests and sorry is just a no shit sherlock, mouth talk, con job." It is clear what has just happened and no amount of apologies can reverse the effects of these actions.

    "From your memory to this instant, worked so hard for working distance." He's worked hard and tried to appease his girlfriend and now it has all gone in vain.

    "Like a mouth to late to shut." Again he's talking about how it's too late for redemption. Her actions have already taken place and the damage has already been done.

    "I'm your failure not your failure now."
