Deep Red is blurring my eyes
I'll wait in the closet until tonight
I want you to explain your feelings for me
The blade on your skin is what I've wanted to be
I will wait for you to scream and shout, but
You open your mouth, the blood runs out...

The knife cuts through her skin
And your heart starts beating faster
You feel the pressure within
As you look into her eyes...

    General CommentI'm probably the only person who sees the song this way, but I've always interpreted it almost sexually. Rough, perhaps even nonconsensually, but sexual all the same. Wanting to be the blade against the other person, the knife cutting through skin ...

    Granted, I'm a masochist with a blade fetish, so of course I'd interpret the song that way ... :P
