    ...and we can try and decipher it.

    I'll start:

    "We saw the Western coast, I saw the hospital, nurse the shoreline like a wound, we paint a lover's tryst, we're neither clear nor descript, we kept it safe and slow, the quiet things that no one ever knows."

    i dont think that makes sense to even the lyricist. sometimes ppl write shit just for the way it sounds; the ambience it paints.. or cuz it sounds arty :mamoru:

    i can't think of any lyrics right now

    Using http://www.everything2.com/index.pl?node_id=836017&lastnode_id=124:


    "Blood Clot" is the most virulent insult in Jamaican Patois English. It is similar to 'fuck' in usage, but does not change form for different parts of speech. Blood Clot has entered the slang lexicon in other dialects of English through the Rastafarian sub-culture. It can be an noun, as in "Shut up, blood clot," or, more commonly, an adjective, as in "The blood clot government is cracking down on the growing of the herb."

    'Clot' is the Jamaican Patois word for cloth - therefore a 'blood clot' would be a cloth used to deal with menstrual episodes.

    so how do you say "blood clot" in Jamaica? I.e. you run up to the doctor and say "Doctor, I think something is wrong with my arm - it has a blood clot."

    I don't know exactly what those lyrics are about but hte best I can get, from that and the rest of the song is that it's about a couple that something's gone wrong and he's remembering the good times when they were alone. I don't know if someone got hurt physically (like in the video) but it just seems like a reminiscent song. Now that I think of it, it does seem like maybe someone got injured.

    "I coulda swore I gave my wedding ring to you. Among the chewing gears you taunt me tear. Elements are still alive to shake from ear to ear. Pez are gonna let it slide gonna burn what cotton decides are apelee. My main oven drive he took from under what's come over me"

    see if you can figure this fucker out..

    Fates Warning - Valley of The Dolls


    Bedroom mirrors do tell who's the fairest
    of them all
    Lime light silhouette transparent attic walls
    Dancing shadows cascade paper walls
    Wailing ghost guitars send in the clowns

    Painted plastic faces stealing mommies
    make up
    Masque the false gods with mannequin smiles
    Prima donnas play upon their pedestal
    of fame
    Unborn girls false fascade illegitamate child
    I won't play your game

    Blasphemous black bible bias you betray
    bigotry
    Slay the hydra prety fair maidens spread
    leprocy
    Hungry children feed from hype of
    perpetual ego's
    I slay the hydra, burn the talisman,
    holocaust
    Run with the pack illegitimate child the
    unborn wench at war. tear him inside
    she became a bride wedlock to a whore.
    Shatter the dream the tangerine dream bow
    to kings not queens. Back where you reign
    rule your domain Valley of the Dolls!

    Bow to kings of yesterday they have given
    you wings to fly away, what have the
    phantom queens but deceived you
    Army of shadows climbing silvery moun-
    tains lineing molton and ask kiss my
    Camouflage the battle scars with oxy ten and
    maybelline
    Cloning the hero's in hype magazine
    Pirates of underground lightening twice
    the speed of sound. You will prevail.

    Feels only queen
    We'll try for for the one for Anglais
    Just makes his deal
    'Cause I say, "No! You're mine"
    and I'll go on for I feel
    I got the cross confusing man, yeah!
    I got no more me, uh!
    'Cause I say you're either ready
    He's got a voice
    A wretched voice indeed
    Prosthetic you, waiting to disrobe

    True right, try to shock me
    Feeling like a seething head
    God looks right through me
    This is what you do to me
    I see you're a choking hot wheel
    Seeing opportunity
    Guys done wheel to shark me
    He's not me!
    We're stuck in cartwheels
    Feeling like a perfect nuclear
    He's a real meathead
    Why?
