I chose this song, because I have been listening to it for years, and I already knew a little about what Claudio Sanchez meant by it, but I still did not know exactly what he meant. What I knew is it dealt with some part of his life. I just did not know which part. I thought it was something to do with his parents like his mother. I got that it would be his mother from the lines "a whore in sheep's clothing", and "please make up your mind girl". What the song is about is a man seeking vengeance on a female who cheated on him. Claudio himself has said the is basically about “a man seeking vengeance on this lying whore and in his own subconscious beats this woman and throws her into her own grave.” Subconscious people, remember I said this is based on things that happen in his life, and he would not be writing this song. He would be in jail for life.
I have never had someone cheat on me before; so I don't know the feeling of it. I have felt things that could most likely can be measured to that point. So I can see where those thoughts can come from.
The genre of the song I would put in the Alternative metal; witch I do call light metal. Where there is not screaming, but the garter is quite heavy. They do a few songs about this subject. Another one of their songs also talks about relationships, and this time it is his marriage. The song wake up is about him starting to leave to go on tour, and it is about him feeling sad that he did not know when he was going to see her again.
This song might have a violent message, but does that make you want to punch someone in the face? I don't think it does. Like I said before I have been listening to this song for years now, and every time that I have not once did it make me feel like hurting someone, or something. At least from the song there were times I wanted to punch something, but never from song.
