Disintegration Lyrics

Oh I miss the kiss of treachery

The shameless kiss of vanity

The soft and the black and the velvety

Up tight against the side of me

And mouth and eyes and heart all bleed

And run in thickening streams of greed

As bit by bit it...

    It seems to me, to be about a relationship that has lost its love. He sings about missing the dangerous kisses they used to enjoy, and how he cannot help but be attracted to lots more women because he isn't getting any love from his existing relationship. They both know that it isn't working, but he knows that when it ends, it will end like all his relationships - painful and bitter. He sings about going round and around again- all his romance fails and he knows eventually he will leave her too, even though it will break them both and probably push him over the edge.

    It's about an affair with a younger person, who gives validation to it because of their obsession with the band and their popularity.

    Even though he misses and yearns the love he once knew that felt good with all of the trappings in a relationship finally turned inward on it's self in the hope to stop the pain of sin, while dissintragating slowly in the feeling of falling without hitting the bottom of the void and continually being sucked slowly by the black hole of the mind.

    I think that the song is about him having a child and how he cannot accept the next chapter of his life.

    I think it's about how there is always that one special person will leave you bleeding for them.
