    General Commentmy theory is that it's about the act of sex. karl hyde's lyrics provide enough randomness tho to able to interpret it to other things quite easily but i still think it's about sex

    General Commentnot just sex, but almost sado-masochist sex.....As far as not hurting anyone, I think that is more a defensive stance, like them defending their freaky ways....The beat definitely caters to just about any position outside of missionary....And I always thought the lyric was "And a razor will love" not "an eraser of love"...hmm...

    General CommentIt's worth checking out the full lyrics from the Dubnobasswithmyheadman 20th Anniversary. This is where some of the repeated lyrics and the title of the track come from: youtube.com/…

    She smells of soap,
    she smells so clean,
    blonde smiles chrome position,
    got it off the television,
    wrapped in skin,
    the mega bride,
    beneath the branded sky,
    a puppet,
    a razor of love,
    said something wonderful once,
    she's a cowgirl,
    well I suppose,
    mini thing fringes and boots,
    the double six,
    the double six,
    the double six Brazil.

    She has two names,
    one for her face,
    the other for her eyes,
    the other for the tongue,
    she has two names,
    one for her face,
    the one for her eyes,
    the other for the tongue,
    thank you for the touch like a razor rub my wound let me to open I'm ready to use,
    like vanilla,
    like incense,
    eighteen years in a week for the comfort of a stranger,
    snake bite and cream,
    time is running out,
    we walk like snakes,
    beautiful blonde,
    call me I feel like flying,
    into good weather,
    no no music,
    no no cigarettes,
    no no elevator Beethoven.

    Home video,
    skin video,
    we are so small,
    talk to me,
    talk to my machine,
    shut your mouth,
    I'm a snake man 11:56pm,
    with a union gun,
    hardware gun software leeches and cream,
    freezes big as chickens,
    formless and more like a blood thing more like screaming skin she's my aluminium Venus,
    fresh eggs and big black Cherokee,
    marrying the white gun,
    two hundred teeth,
    pain scream tax free rediscover guinea pigs,
    of Mississippi delta,
    too clean red fox over the new power of six ninety-nine,
    motionless I'm a red recreation like a river,
    swimming with the insects speed monkey saveloy,
    star leg into the pan tease it out of the hole triple x,
    man dies of erotic overload twenty four hour visiting massage very discreet,
    18 to 30 mechanical bone,
    flexible friends,
    new white new money,
    do you want it now in mono or in stereo,
    blue removal men through to be batman again,
    what's the matter,
    what does it think what does it matter what I think,
    you got the brain,
    you got the use of a brain this week.

    I could turn to.
    Never get out of a boat,
    unless you're going all the way,
    I would have done,
    I would have done anything,
    for you,
    thank you for the touch like a razor rub my wound,
    let me to open I'm ready to use like vanilla like incense eighteen years in a week with the comfort of a stranger with the,
    snake bite and cream,
    time is running and we walk like snakes with the beautiful blonde why don't you call me I feel like flying into good weather again,
    no no music,
    no no cigarettes,
    no no elevator Beethoven,
    now you're the birdstar big boy beats her with everything fax fluorescent cruel smoking Indian,
    rubber gun girl,
    charcoal mellow salty salty Cinderella,
    snake bite and cream,
    she has two names,
    one for her face,
    the other for her eyes,
    the other for her eyes,
    she smells of lies,
    she smells of soap,
    she smells so clean,
    blonde smiles in the chrome position,
    got it off a television,
    wrapped in skin,
    she's the mega bride,
    beneath her beautiful branded sky,
    she's a puppet an eraser of love,
    said something wonderful once,
    fast boon for sexual America,
    sexual advertising,
    I'm invisible,
    I'm a fallout don't eat the mushrooms.

    My InterpretationI always thought he was singing about transcendence, that moment when you leave your every day mind, and become everything, invisible, connected to the universe totally. Like when you're totally in the moment at a rave.

    "I scream so much
    you know what I mean this electric stream"

    ~~ he's talking about what it's like to sing on stage, electric stream = the music

    and my tears in league with the
    wires and energy and my machine
    this is my beautiful dream"

    ~~ The tears are the overwhelming emotion the music creates in that moment
    ~~ Wires and the energy and the machine is the music set up/ DJ equipment
    ~~~ He's living his passion, it's like a dream

    "why don't you call me I feel like flying in two"
    ~~~ talking about getting high, or reaching unimaginable heights in the moment

    "I'm hurting no one
    hurting no one"
    ~~~ when you're at a rave, enjoying the music, you're not hurting anyone, you're pure love

    "I want to give you everything
    I want to give you energy
    I want to give a good thing
    I want to give you everything "

    ~~~ he's talking about connecting to everyone in that moment and giving all he can to the audience and vice versa - everyone is pure love in that moment


    ~~~ Becoming everything in that moment, transcendence of self

    "in one final scream of love who could climb
    this high she looks beautiful like a child"

    ~~~ In that moment you become like a child, enchanted with the world again, again climbing to the highest of highs

    "I feel tears
    and I want to scream"

    ~~ because it's so amazing and emotional

    "you know what I mean cause this is hurting no one
    an eraser of love"

    ~~~ an eraser of love, erasing your identity in that moment, as you transcend, it erases both everything you love, and hate - become one with the universe

    General CommentIt sounds like surrendering emotional attachment, or even the capacity to become attached, in the name of avoiding messy, human anguish. Or not even that maybe, but a song from the perspective of someone who is trying to rid themselves of emotional dependence. I can't really articulate why I think this but the difference between an eraser and a razor is that an eraser leaves its subject cleaner than before and a razor, properly applied, just makes things messy, which leads me to believe, along with the last line "hurt--the necessary feeling," that he doesn't ever accomplish his goal, for better.

    General CommentI'm sorry, but I personally think you are all off beat. I think Karl's singing about heartbreak; sounds like the song of a guy who's girl left him and he's having an introspective moment about how he feels at the moment.

    I'm invisible - He doesn't think he has meaning with her anymore

    Why don't you call me - (Self explanatory by my interpretation)

    My beautiful dream - His idea of what could've been perfect love with her?

    An eraser of love - Perhaps it's his fault and he feels guilt?

    Just my two cents, hope you all see my points....

    General CommentIn my opinion, it's about a guy who's in love with a girl, and they're hurting each other. It's like it's the only way. The guy feels guilty about it and wishes he was able not to hurt her : "this is my beautiful dream... i'm hurting no one". He feels invisible and thinks he's only able to destroy love (an eraser of love). But he truly loves her (i wanna give you everything). He may have done something bad to the girl and that could be the reason why she doesn't call him back. The guy feels so bad that he needs to scream, thinking that at least, it's hurting no one...
    An impossible love story to me.

    General CommentI thought it was "And any rays are of love" rather than "Am an eraser of love"

    General CommentI always thought it was about been about being gay and the closet.

    "I'm invisible" - If you're not in the know, you won't have a clue who I am, I am hidden from the straight world who has only the vaguest idea about the gay lifestyle.

    "...and a razor of love" - The contemporary gay lifestyle is a tightrope; on one side it's a devil may care attitude, chemsex, and promiscuity; on the other it's find a partner to settle with, and try to integrate with straight society by mimicking hetero lifestyle. Either way you play your hand, it's easy to get cut.

    "Why don't you come out - feel like flying in two" - Out yourself and your world will explode outwards. Can you handle it?

    My InterpretationIn the past I've always heard this as "eraser of love" but have just noticed it as "eraser of luck". It's hard to tell with final aspirants and studio mix but hard to miss the -k once you notice. It really changes the direction of the song.
