Disasterology Lyrics

I lay down
I drink the poison then I pass the fuck out
Now let me tell you about the good life

I have a million different kinds of fun When I'm asleep and in a dream
That I'm your only one

Can we create something beautiful
And destroy...

    I think that the song is talking about self harm and suicide. hence the line "what a waste of a perfectly goo clean wrist" also, "can we create something beautiful and destroy it" is probably talking about how life is a beautiful thing and self-harm ruined it for him. when he says "if every living thing dies alone, what am I doing here" he's saying that he would rather die than be alone for the rest of his life. hope this helps (:

    I think this song is about self harm or suicide in a very well hidden way. It is obvious it talks about self harm when it says
    "Oh, what a waste of a perfectly good clean wrist" . I think that when he says : "Can we create something beautiful and destroy it" he is talking about his life, which life is something beautiful, and how he destroyed it with self harm. When he says "I have a million different girls taht hide,under my bed and when i let them out they treat me right" he is talking about his razor blades and how he finds relief while cutting. I hope this helped you to understand my point of view on this song and maybe find your own meaning to it.

    To be honest when he says "Can we create something beautiful and destroy it? Nobody knows I dream about it" I feel like he's talking about self harm or suicide. A beautiful life destroyed it by cutting or killing yourself. And I feel like that could be a message he's trying to put out like you dont have to hurt yourself, your perfect. Or he could just be speaking from experience.

    "This song is basically about a typical guy’s dream. It talks about girls, drinking and having the time of your life. It’s very poetic and drifts around just like a person’s mind would inside of a dream. I purposely just wrote down the first things that popped into my head. The chorus talks about building something beautiful only to destroy it. This is a very philosophical idea that I’ve played around with for a long time.” He later said it’s influenced by the movie Donnie Darko. - Vic Fuentes

    I believe they said it was about a typical guy's dream of girls, drinking, and living the life but everyone can have their own interpretation which is beautiful about PTV

    I personally interpetate it as a boy with self harming issues bringing his girl for the ride "you were screaming till the police came" after watching him self harm. The boy loves his girl but can't help harming in front of her, he shows her "the good life". I'm going to explain "I have a million different girls" as razors like the other guys said. Basically with this idea go through the whole song and I think it fits. IDK if this is the intended interpretation but so what.

    I feel as if this is about self harm & life.
    "What a waste of a perfectly good, clean wrist" very obvious it's about cutting or another form of self harm.
    "Can we create something beautiful & destroy it" I interprete it as life. you (or your parents) have built/created this beautiful life of yours & somehow it's being destroyed.

    I think it is about a suicidal man and his girlfriend, with the "girls that hide under my bed" representing blades, and the reference to cutting "Oh what a waste of a perfectly good clean wrist." "You were screaming till the police came" is about the mans girlfriend crying and asking why. "Nobody knows I dream about it, this is my imagination" is talking about how no one knows that he is suicidal, and that no one could understand why he is that way.

    I kinda thought this song was about an insane rapist or something :I and the way it results girls after it happens maybe? "I have a million different kinds of fun and when I'm asleep and in a dream that I'm your only one." which makes me think of the "insane" part which would be after he raped this person he still dreams about it and he dreams that "he is her only one" so that brings the crazy part into play. Then "Can we create something beautiful and destroy it" makes me think
    that they were a couple hence the "beautiful" part then after she trusted him that's when he raped her, therefore "destroying" it. "If you come over tonight we can travel through time,
    we can sleep on the ceiling and creep under black lights.
    I have a million different girls that hide under my bed,
    and when I let them out they treat me right." that is self-explanatory.

    "Oh what a waste of a perfectly good, clean wrist.
    You were screaming till the police came." Well, she was probably screaming when she got raped, and if she would get to thinking about this after is happened she would probably cut... so yea.

    "If every living thing dies alone,
    what am I doing here?" I am assuming this is like the girl that got raped's thoughts xP.
    Back into the insane part "If it's the end of the world! If it's the end of the world,
    you and me should spend the rest of it in love!"

    so that's just my opinion on it (:

    one thing i love about PTV's songs is the wide range of interpretations...literally anyone can connect with the song and be inspired by it in some way. many of them are beautifully morbid, and i love it

    Actually, this song was based of a movie called Donnie Darko
    As in the movie, a woman says to Donnie "Every living thing dies alone,"
    Also, Donnie says
    "Destruction is a form of creation," hense the "Can we create something beautiful and destroy it," part.

    This song has a lot of aspects, lyric wise, from the film Donnie Darko. Such as the title "Disasterology" and the lyrics "This is the end of the world" "Can we create something beautiful and destroy it" and "Every living thing dies alone" all things taken from the film Donnie Darko.

    I think its about someone whose relationship has a bad ending in which they cant forget about that person or the memories they had *somewhat most of the relationship is in their dreams maybe wishing they could replay it in a different way* since they cant get the person out there head, they cut their wrist to get rid of the pain

    can we create something beautiful and destroy it? = they had a good relationship until it ended

    what a waste of a perfectly good, clean wrist = they numb the pain by cutting because they felt they did something wrong or just to get rid of what memories that contained toward the relationship
