Blister Lyrics - Seether

Review The Song (2)



You're a blister, on a finger
And they'll keep you around,
Just to keep them around
So unexpected, you're sequestered
But you keep it alive,
Yea just keep it inside again

And than we'll follow you home again
And give the sickness we give to friends
And then we'll swallow you whole again
In my wide mouth
To praise

Just let it fester, let it rest here
Just pretend we're contrived
Just pretend we're in bind
If we're rejected, We're expected
Just to cling to the lie
sponsored links
And to keep it inside, yea

And than we'll follow you home again
And give the sickness we give to friends
And than we'll swallow you whole again
In my wide mouth
To please

If we find her, can we keep her
Just as cold as we found her
as old as a memory
If she flinches, seven menches
We'll just keep it alive
And just keep it inside, yea

And than we'll follow you home again
And give the sickness we give to friends
And than we'll swallow you whole again
In my wide mouth
To pray

Completely. This song is amazing!! | Reviewer: Krakakidsam19 | 10/6/10

This song really is beautiful as you've described Demi-Victoria. I enjoyed reading your interpretation! I agree with your take on it, as well as the fact, that as you said, the song could be about nearly anything! The song has some great imagery in it. I especially like the the third verse 'If we find her can we keep her just as cold as we found her, as old as a memory...' I find it to be a very chilling expression of loss (death) and in that, sort of a twisted way of dealing with it, as opposed to mourning and then moving on. Do you think, keeping in the context of your interpretation that 'Her' could be a metaphor for this couples love? In the verse he makes it sound as though he has a choice whether to revive 'her' or let her remain dead, or as he puts it 'cold' (If we find her can we keep her etc) his will is obvious. Have you ever read those stories about people who lose loved ones yet still keep theor bodies with them in their houses? In a way it kind of reminds me of that lol. Anyway i think that verse definitely lines up with what you said about the settling for the level of contentment they have, aswell as the rest of the song, which is all awesome i have to say again. I thought i would just focus on that verse however, for now. :)

Thankyou for writing this song Seether!

Also, in a blatant attempt at self advertisement, here is the link to me doing a cover of the song on Youtube! Lol only by the way though :) www.youtube.com/watch?v=xsHumUVBgAo



love love love this song | Reviewer: Demi-Victoria | 3/30/10

It's a shame no one's written anything about this beautiful song, so I will.

I take this to be a song about, most obviously, a relationship gone stagnant - they're together simply because they've been together so long, that their love for one another is routine: wake up, brush your teeth, go to work, come home to him/her, have sex, go to sleep.

{follow you home again, give the sickness we give to friends- perhaps the "sickness" of their illusion? and them we'll swallow you whole again in my wide mouth to praise- take her in, every day, as he always does}

Yet they're letting the regularity of their relationship rule their lives. Nothing's necessarily wrong with their relationship; they're satisfied, but not happy. They can both get more out of life, but because they work well, they'll just "pretend they're contrived, pretend they're in bind", keeping her "as cold as we found her, as old as the memory", and if things change, you "keep it alive, keep it inside", instead of breaking up with each other because it can result in either being in a relationship they're less satisfied in, or- the culturally abstract but certain possibility- being with the person they're truly happy with. For most people, and the "people" in this song, this is too scary a leap to take.

So they just go on day by day, settling for the level of contentment they have instead of the happiness they want.

This is a song that doesn't hollywoodize life -- this is what the majority of us do every day, settle for what's in front of us instead of taking advantage of what great things can be in store. This could be about anything, not just romance.

You won't find a song that goes into and sticks to REAL, every-day, ordinary circumstances, not fantasy, and finds the truth in it with the utmost emotional and artistic tenderness and beauty. Thank you, Seether! It's changed my life.
