Blue October: Razorblade Meaning

Razorblade Lyrics

In the day by day collision
Called the art of growing up
There's an innocence we look for in the stars
To be taken back to younger days
When there was no giving up
On the people we held closest to our hearts

Yeah it is you that I...

    Razorblade is about childhood sexual abuse, particularly by clergymen. It's an extremely intense look at the issue and about how it makes the victims feel and the emotional problems they face.

    For example:
    it is you that I remember in their bedroom
    and it's you that took their first away from them
    it is you they set their standards too
    you wounded them for life
    you were a preacher and supposed to be above them

    a brief bout with a razorblade cut me
    i freaked out thinking people didn't love me
    i watched closely as the you I knew forgot me
    in letting go I am so proud of what I've done

    The real meaning of this song seems quite obvious but I also think that people that were abused in general as children by someone close to them such as a family member or even their parents can relate to this song quite a bit. It has so much emotion in it.

    My interpretation was more of a story. A story of a little boy/girl who grew up with the pain of what someone they were supposed to trust raping them. That person was supposed to have been a higher person, in this case a preacher, and thanks to them, the little boy/girl grew up with the low standards that rape set. They grew hurt and had a time where it had gotten so bad, that they cut themselves, but the preacher acted as if nothing had happened. It's almost as if they're telling this story in a court house, where all the preacher's sins are being brought to light.

    he says on the argue with a tree dvd i think that he waswatching tv and saw a priest had molested a child and he got mad and frustrated and sympathetic for the children so he wrote this song to speak out about how wrong it is that someone who is supposed to be a good, trustworthy and wholesome can betray the innocents he is supposed to be preaching a positive message and how they can betray them like that.

    The lead singer of Blue October is known to suffer from depression and self-injury. This song is about cutting due to the sexual abuse by a preist.

    "It is you that I remember in their bedroom
    It is you that took their first away from them
    It is you they set their standards to
    You wounded them for life
    You were a preacher and suppose to be above men" He did it to other kids

    The song is about being sexually abused as a child. The "razorblade" is a metephore for the abuser. So " a brief bout with a razorblade cut me," just means that them short amount of time spent with that person deeply hurt him.
