My Most Played Video 2013



I'm not always like this, it's something I've become
A terrible weakness, in my nature, in my blood
Save me, oh save me,
Save me from myself
Before I hurt somebody else again

Domino motion
Jump starts when we touch
A blackout approaching, here it comes now, wish me luck
It's all over, it's all over, it's all over in a flash
I can't remember
What have I done now?

Go, go, faster wider
More, more get it down yeah
Dance, dance
Take me over glittering clouds
Go, go faster wider
More more get it down yeah
Dance, dance
Take me over glittering clouds

Oh, my head hurts.

Oh dear, oh dear
It's all over the papers
And the TV, wagging tongues
The artist's impression looks just like me, only better
Don't blame me, don't maim me, I can't help what I am

Oh, Lord knows I've tried to

Go, go, faster wider
More, more get it down yeah
Dance, dance
Take me over glittering clouds
Go, go faster wider
More more get it down yeah
Dance, dance
Take me over glittering clouds


Glittering clouds
Glittering clouds


So many interpretations.  Even though this is meant to be about the Biblical locusts, there are many stretched metaphors (or conceits - thank you John Donne) here.  People have taken it to be a veiled on everything from prostitution, drug-taking and mental illness, to a person being a werewolf. My take on it is that the narrative voice had become involved with someone and it either ended badly, or because there was not an official ending, that this 'someone' kept resurfacing to haunt them - until one day, they bring their love to dark and bloodied end.

Oh dear, Oh dear...
