Bodysnatchers Lyrics

I do not


What it is

I've done wrong

Full of holes

Check for pulse

Blink your eyes

One for yes

Two for no

I have no idea what I am talking about

I am trapped in this body and can't get out

    In the lyrics, he is comparing being trapped in his standard, unfulfilling life to being paralyzed.
    I just thought that would seem obvious.
    Blink your eyes one for yes, two for no
    When one is in full bodied paraysis, the only way to communicate is blinking.
    I do not understand what it is Iv done wrong
    He doesn't know how he got there and why he deserves being bound, unable to move in his
    body/societal cage
    Im traaaaaped in this boodyy and can't get ouut..
    see it for yourself and read throgh with this interpretation,
    (it makes a lot of sense)

    I think this is a shot at bands like Coldplay..."you killed sound...removed backbone...a pale imitation...with the edges sawed off...
