Vivo di sponda quasi in bilico un ubriaco in equilibrio instabile
Le spalle al muro la testa persa fra le nuvole resto nascosto dentro un labirinto di pensieri
Sterili verso lacrime inutili resto immobile come un mimo sopra il palcoscenico guardo e
Aspetto il peggio il tempo scorre costante coprendomi di polvere i miei pensieri
Bolle che vedo salire verso la superficie come pesci che decidono
Di volare prima di morire e inevitabilmente scoppiano
Lo sguardo è perso in quel vuoto che va sotto il nome di
Concentrazione due sole cose si distinguono chiaramente l'incertezza delle scelte
Ela solitudine che contraddistingue ogni buon giocatore resto solo chiuso nel mio angolo
Guardo e aspetto che la situazione passi senza lasciare tracce che feriscano
Sono la vittima e il carnefice ,il primo ostacolo forse l'unico di sicuro ostico
Come un cieco in preda al panico perso in mezzo al traffico resto nel kaos viaggio sui binari dei miei limiti
Non do nell'occhio e mi nascondo dietro maschere che fingono un sorriso
Mi arrampico su impalcature che in un baleno crollano l'impalcatura è ormai caduta
Il rumore è sordo sono in preda al panico fuggo dentro un buco
Con gli artigli tesi contro il vento in un gesto inutile segnali poco chiari
Sono ormai la regola e sguardi senza appiglio si perdono nel dedalo di aspirazioni più grandi del mio animo
Sono la vittima e l'ira ingoia la mia logica

While the obvious connections with suicide or alcoholism could be drawn easily, more subtly this song could be about someone who views the world through a negative lens constantly and how as much as the writer tries to show the beauty in the world, this person refuses to see it. It's one or another between the rope and the bottle. There is no good option for this person. They can't see it. Skiba sings it in a kind of exasperated way like He's tired of hearing this negative view constantly and just allowing that person to continue feeling the way they feel knowing he can't do anything about it. You can hear it when he says maybe you're a vampire.

Shudder to Think
This song is timeless, and nearly 20 years after its creation, still possesses the mystique it did the first time i heard it ~1994. To me, at first blush, all those years ago, it had some kind of homo-erotic allure. The line "so that the others may do" tells of something which must be done for others to follow suit. It felt like like some kind of roxy-glam-pop invitation to sexual liberation. Upon further introspection I think the song may not have an intrinsic meaning, but simply represents a sort of "holding open the door" for people who otherwise might be affronted by this song/band's unusual style. I know, as a sort of armchair rock-historian, that there have been few bands so daring and so true to the sound that wanted to emerge from within, whether the creator wanted it or not. This band handled it with elegance and grace seldom, if ever, seen.

I believe this is another amazingly on point and nuanced commentary on the insanity that follows emotionally abusive relationships. The abuser has no anxieties, no emotional pain, or salience/memory for that matter, so the survivor appears to be the crazy one, obsessed with the abuse and that buzzword that seems to ignite arguments about diagnosing people without a degree, etc. funny how you say the words domestic violence, abuse, abuse survivor and boom the subject changes. Anyways, I especially relate to her midnights becoming afternoons, complex PTSD often leads to this phenomenon, whether due to purposeful sleep deprivation by the abuser, or just hyper vigilance associated with the PTSD, along with the fear of facing people, especially your loved ones, who Never actually understand, even if they try, because all they see is you, on fire, screaming about the arsonist that no one ever sees, and who has been spreading lies about your alleged mental instability, deceptive personality, etc. the whole time. While the last thing survivors need is more blame, our society supports a narrative that blames the objectively innocent party because the blatantly guilty party has spent their entire lives fabricating a persona and we’re just being human, and human psychology is quite counterintuitive especially in the context of trauma. Look at Amber Heard. Vilified and not believed, regardless of what any abuse survivor could recognize as a fellow survivor instantly. But Johnny depp is a malignant narcissist, a man, and wealthy as all get out. It’s sick.
