Strawberry Gashes Lyrics - Jack off Jill

Review The Song (25)



Turn her over
A candle is lit
I see through her
blow it out and save all her ashes for me
Curse me
Sold her
The poison that runs its course through her
pale white skin with strawberry gashes
all over all over

Watch me fault her
You're living like a disaster
she said kill me faster
with strawberry gashes
all over

Called her over
and asked her if she was improving
sponsored links
She said feels fine
it's wonderful wonderful here

Hex me told her
I dreamt of a devil that knew her
Pale white skin with
strawberry gashes
all over all over

Watch me fault her
You're living like a disaster
She said kill me faster
With strawberry gashes all over all over

I lay quiet
Waiting for her voice to say
some things you lose
and some things you just give away

Scold me failed her
if only I'd held on tighter to her
pale white skin
that twisted and withered
away from me away from me

Watch me lose her
it's almost like losing myself
Give her my soul
and let them take some body else
get away from me

Watch me fault her
You're living like a disaster
She said kill me faster
With strawberry gashes all over all over ME

i think it is about 3 peoplea girl that is so far gone she has no veiws. she thinks and does everything the narrorator says and a slip of the tounge "go die" causes the girl to kill herself the third person is a guy who tries to stop it but cant because the 1st girl just aggress with every one..... i used to be the first girl i almost died but instead got sent to norwood



so | Reviewer: Anonymous | 9/1/11

to me it sounds like the song is just about one person, but two sides of the person. some lines make me think that the narrator is anorexic and obviously self harms. the anorexia and depression are taking over and she's losing control



Different Interpretation | Reviewer: Grey | 5/14/10

Everyone thinks it's between two people. I think differently. I think it's just one person, the narrator, who's talking about herself from outside her perspective. It's like she feels detached from herself, so she talks about herself in the third person.
This is just something I always thought.



Some things you lose and some things you just give away... | Reviewer: msfuckup | 3/2/10

With strawberry gashes all over all over ME!
I understood the whole song up to that point it seemes like the simple idea of someone trying to save their friend from self harm and depression until eventually she failed and died.
It could either be that she the friend was just a figment of the imagination and that the whole story was just about the narrator. Or it could be that the friend was so close it felt like every cut she did hurt her as well. Or just that she was so depressed she didn't save her friend she cut herself to.
The poison that runs its course through her confuzzeled me. Maybe the poison was the depression that the singer thought she'd caused. Or it could be drugs or poison used to kill herself.
I guess everyone has their own interpretations of the song.



So I think | Reviewer: Anonymous | 1/11/10

That it is about a very close relationship between 2 women (in fact it could be sisters or sister/mother).
Id say that the girl has been molested/raped (I dreamt of a devil that knew her, some things you lose and some things you just give away)
Turns to, not only SH, but also Anorexia (A candle is lit I see through her plus pale white skin that twisted and withered away from me)
Tries to deal, been admitted, fails and commits suicide.
Sad but beatifully put and sung.



self harm x | Reviewer: emilee | 12/24/09

i luv this song.. the lyrics are a bit confusing but from what i got from them it sounds as if jessicka has a friend that wants to kill herself and the strawberry gashes are cuts from self harm/self injury/ self mutilation (w.e u wanna call it) i like this song soo much.. very powerful.. its like a drug to me XD x merry xmas every1 x



It's wonderful, wonderful here.... | Reviewer: AlyxParker | 12/18/09

This is a beautiful and powerful song
The meaning is clear, the writer of this song was watching her friend slowly lose her mind, and ended up commiting suicide, possibly with the help of the writer.
After dealing with the guilt, the auther ends the song with the cycle of madness, self mutilation and suicide contining its wrekening path



Hurrm. | Reviewer: Anonymous | 8/31/09

This song sounds as if the narrator is a drug dealer of some sort. It also sounds as if the narrator somehow got her friend into a bad habit then realised what it did to them. Or that the narrator blames themselves for their friend's psychotic amount of depression...

It could also be a "What does it mean to you?" scenario.



Kill me faster... | Reviewer: Toria the Awsomearifical | 6/2/09

I tried to figure out some of this amazing song, and this is what I got.

Actually, I lied, this is what you need to understand to understand my explanation.

Watch me fault her
You're living like a disaster
She said kill me faster
With strawberry gashes
All over

I think that the line "Your Living like a disaster" is the singer saying to a person who hurts herself what it has done to her, and "Kill me faster" is the girl responding. That’s all I needed to say so that you can understand my explanation.

On to my explanation...

The beginning is basicly the singer/speaker person finding the body of a good friend, then walks away and tells the story of how this happened. In the lines "Curse me sold her the poison that runs its course through her" if you put a comma between me and sold, it means that the speaker gave the girl the poison she killed herself with. The repeated lines "pale white skin with strawberry gashes all over all over" Describes the body of the dead girl, pale with pink scars from the cuts she inflicted on herself.

Im not going bore you with a three page review like I did the other day for the song 'Exo-Politics' by Muse, so I guess Ill just tell the story.

There were two girls who had been friends for a very long time, the speaker and the dead girl. The dead girl(before she was dead) had reached an impassible point in her life or a tragedy and began hurting herself by cutting. Not only did she cut her wrists, but other places too, where it would hurt more yet still remain unnoticed, like her chest and ankles. The not-dead girl found out about the cutting and tried to help her by telling her how much of a wreck she was and how awful her life was and was going to continue to be, but the dead girl just wanted to die faster.

Eventually, the dead girl appears to be getting over her problems, but she is really only riding the high she gets from the emotional relief the cutting provides (It does provide temporary emotionally relief. As the wounds heal, it hurts, and if your focusing on physical, your not focusing on emotional pain, providing relief.) Unfortunately, this is only an illusion, and she continues to cut herself to feel better. Soon, as her body becomes accustomed to the pain and it becomes obsolete, cutting stops helping at all and the dead girl again longs for death.

The not-dead girl makes a mistake or maybe a slip of a tongue, and tells her about a dream where her friend stands by the devil as a minion and a corpse, and is covered in little pink scars and open wounds.

As time passes, the dead girl drifts away from her friend and becomes secluded in a cold apartment or similar dark location. The not-dead girl tries to save her but can not get a grip on her. She is too far gone into her depression to be saved by friends and family. Eventually, the speaker refuses to watch her friend suffer through the cutting any longer, and in an impulse offers her poison to kill herself with. The dead girl accepts and the speaker tells her to use it only as a last resort, if she was sure she wants to die. Unfortunately, she does not, and takes it within a week.

The living girl blames herself for her friends death, and rightfully so. If not for her, her friend would still be alive. After finding her body, she returns to her house and lies in her bed, wishing her friend would come back. She feels like that she just let her friend die, which she did, instead of fighting for her.

In the end, the girl would rather trade her soul for her friends (as she knows her friend is in hell from the dream she had. Maybe not, but I think so.) Ironically, she begins cutting herself at the end, and most likely dies too.



you're living like a disaster | Reviewer: peanut | 9/30/08

*shivers* this song makes me feel so weird, but a good weird, i guess.

i love this song, but i can't really work out if the end means that the girl committed suicide, or that the girl was just lost to the 'strawberry gashes'...

makes me worry about a friend of mine.
