Razor Lyrics

Play "Razor"
on Amazon Music

Wake up it's time
Need to find a better place to hide
Make up, your mind
I need to know
I need to know tonight

Sweet and divine
Razor of mine
Sweet and divine
Razor blade shine

Patience, my dear
We could spend a life time waiting...

    It is about self-harm. It is very moving and gets as close as anyone I have ever heard describe the secret world of self-harm. A very emotive and observant lyric.

    let's hear from who wrote it?? My cat is named razor and it applies to me and him. Every song means what ever you want it to. Interpretation is key!! It should mean what ever feels good or bad. The purpose of being an author is to have open ended discussion on your work hopefully? That's key for me because it can mean something totally different from person to person.

    This is just an opinion but this song may be about when he cut his hair after Nirvana.

    I thing it's about self harm... Don't forget he's had encounters with suicide before... And if he wrote a song about shaving and made it sound that much like it was about self harm it would be too much like a joke. I don't think he's heartless enough to joke about self harm or suicide.

    I hate to be dark but I think it's about cutting yourself.

    the first time I heard the song, "Eternal sunshine of the spotless mind" the movie, was the first thing that came up to my mind.

    I think its a great song it can mean what ever you want it to mean. The worst meaning I've heard is its about a guy shaving but i got something deeper then that from hearing it. I felt like he was trying to make a choice between escaping his life with a loved one or ending his life and the razor blade(sweet and divine) being the one who makes that choice for him. The flow of the lyrics and acoustic guitar together just gave me a dark and beautiful picture of needing to escape,fear,choice,death.....or maybe its about a guy shaving.....
