Definitely about... | Reviewer: They Call Me Skillz | 11/28/07
This song is for sure about being a heroin junky.
He describes himself as in two different people.
The first description is him when he is not high on heroin...
He has fasting black lungs made of clove splintered shards... black and clove splintered shards references to heroin. His lungs would be in shards as would the rest of his body after repeated heroin usage.
When he is high he hears him every night in every pore (I think of something penetrating the pores of skin such as a needle on a syringe full of heroin) and every time he makes me feel warm (most heroin addicts tell the the feeling that heroin gives you is a complete warming of the body an absolute calmness, freeze without an answer (once you are high you are out!) free from all the shame must I hide (heroin addicts tend to be secretive with their addiction because it an overwhelming feeling of guilt hits you when you do the most dirtiest drug out there.) cause I never never sleep alone (this is when the combination of both the strung out and sober character together as one is asleep from the drug and the other is just asleep for sleep's sake).
Isle of open sores= track marks on the arms or where ever he injects it
Every time you freeze without and answer free from all the shame... that seems like what the feeling might be after each injection.
This song is a sad song to me. I have known some heroin addicts and the stuff transforms that person forever. Heroin overstimulates that brain to the point that neural connections can never be fixed and that is why recovering heroin addicts seem like empty shells of what they used to be. They really are.
Good song... very sad.

no matter how you break this down, it's one of the best songs ever penned, song, or delivered. that's why it's soo great.. and these guys do it often as if it's easy. it's amazing to me
you all have it wrong | Reviewer: Anonymous | 11/15/07
"The Widow" is yet again another song from the Mars Volta about a person suffering from a mental imbalance. "i hear him every nite" Obviously someone suffering from schitzophrenia or something similar to that. They cannot sleep alone because it is at these times when these symptoms arise most frequently. Scaring the person.
i would know... my boyfriend suffers from something similar to this.
i find deep comfort in the song and so does he. amazing song. simply amazing.
About the Mars Volta | Reviewer: Anonymous | 8/4/07
They've been one of my favorite bands for a few years now. All of their works are great, period. They were formerly members of At the Drive-in. For the people who didn't know, an interesting fact is that the twosome have continuously worked, jammed, and written music with John Frusciante and Flea from Red Hot Chili Peppers, which is just awesome that these truely talented musicians can get together and perform music together and have an appreciation towards each other. Regardless of the level of popularity these bands have reached in recent years, i still think their greatness is underrated. More people should love their music, because the music has a meaning and message, and those people are today's true musicians and artists.

The Widow review | Reviewer: Nick | 3/27/07
I love this song, by the way. and Mars Volta. The Lead singer, Cedric Bixler-Zavala, is a man, but he speaks a woman's thoughts in this song

review | Reviewer: billy | 2/6/07
i think this song is about a drug dealer and one of his customers. In the video the man with fasting black lungs is seen pushing a cart full of chocolate and everybody flocks to him and takes his chocolate licking it off of their fingers and getting it all over their faces. The narrator also buys his drugs and usues them to escape the reality of his life. This seems most believable to me because a member of the mars volta died of a heroin overdose im not sure whether this was before or after this song was written tho but after he died the other members quit using opiates (just opiates). Also in other other songs such as cassandra gemini they sing about addiction.
awesome | Reviewer: big d | 10/9/06
This is songwriting as it should be, even before I knew the words, I knew it was packed with emotional gravitas and was something I immediately related to. As with all great songs, it's about love. If you've experienced Love, and all that comes with it in its many guises - elation, loss of control, rejection, joy, sadness, - then this is the ultimate song for you. The old proverb says "it is better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all" The writer of "Widow" knows this all to well, as all of us who have loved and lost know. It grows on you like no song I have ever known - Bravo.
I have no idea | Reviewer: mattman | 5/17/06
I think the song is about a lady the get hit frequently by her husband. She is a widow because the are not event lovers anymore. in a way she is alone. I think the song implies that A man Is hearing them fight in the night form the words i hear him every night. dang she needs help. dont let stuff like that happen to your friends or enemys call for help.
Great Song | Reviewer: -Insert Lyrics Here- | 1/2/06
This is by far one of the greatest songs I have ever heard. "The Widow" Such a fitting title, Its mood, rythem, and use of words can be felt by anyone who understands its meaning. This song is a Great song.
Thanks for reading!
question | Reviewer: Anonymous | 10/9/05
is the singer a guy or girl....whats its name!?!?!?!?...really like the song
Mars Volta, and the stuff beeing written | Reviewer: Per Sindre Larsen | 7/21/05
Mars Volta are great indeed. When it comes to "moody" music, like people earlier described it you should check out the band "Madrugada" too. Their album "Industrial Silence" is great, and if you like something abit "noisier" try their album "Grit".
The Widow is wonderful.

This is a really good band. They used to be called At The Drive In. If you like this song check out the song "One Armed Scissor"
