What are your thoughts on the lyrics of Dangerous Animals?
I love Dangerous Animals. The lyrics to me always embodied a sexual frustration/tension/desire he can’t get to. There are a lot of phrases in that song that fit each other “pinned down by the dark, to my knees you do promote me.” Humbug era Alex lyrics are trickier to decipher, especially a song like this. He tends to bounce around, with long winded ideas and concepts that leave you a little breathless and confused. However, his theme and mood are still cast pretty strong. I always liked in Dangerous Animals how he describes the acrobat falling off the beam, the audience watching. Those lines are consistent with the album’s overall theme and tone, the nonsense and the like… Carnival imagery he refers to throughout the entire album. I have another ask about Humbug, and I will write about this more in depth in that.
Anyway, I’ve always struggled with understanding what his message is in this song. Since I can’t actually go and ask him, and if I could he wouldn’t tell me, I can only guess. Usually my guesses have more confidence but this one I never really was so sure. Because he like steers the lyrics in a different direction out of nowhere. I’ll try my best, but don’t take my word for it. And if you have thought otherwise this entire time and want to disagree with me, you can. I have a very weak argument. I’m not sure if I’m right on this one.
The first verse starts with him fighting with his sheets, or struggling to sleep, because he’s frustrated. The well-told gripe. He just wants a girl. “You should have racing stripes the way you keep me in pursuit.” Gets me every time. I don’t need to explain that. “Then do my knees you do promote me” - he’s almost at her mercy, as if to say being pushed down by this girl is a promotion. (Similar theme in She Does the Woods. “She turns my back to the earth and shows me that’s where I’m meant to be.” I’m just assuming by his consistent bottom position he likes to be… Dominated? Inappropriate. I digress.)
He’s stuck in the dark thinking of this girl. “The light it fidgets though, the thoughts’ll soon revert to you…” He’s stuck in the dark, or presumably at night (another major theme on this album; night time, sleep, darkness) thinking of her again. “About as bashful as a tribal dance” - tribal dances are the opposite of bashful. His thoughts aren’t bashful at all. They’re enough for him to later say “so let’s make a mess lioness.” His head pirouettes, or spins around more than he’d like to admit to himself or to the girl he’s thinking of.
The lines I have always struggled with are his circus sounding lines, which are the ones about the acrobat falling off the beam. Where did it come from? Are his friends the audience, divided, telling him how he should feel about this girl? Is it her friends telling her to stay away from him? Who is the acrobat on the beam? Was he just like… this sounds right I’m doing it? (Maybe?) Those lines always stuck out to me because I couldn’t figure them out. I can’t make sense of them. If you have an idea, tell me. I’d love to know.
Some people/interviewers said that AM was the sexy, raunchy album that was kind of unexpected. I always disagreed because of Dangerous Animals. It’s him expressing a frustration, something sexual and laced in desire he can’t let go of. He’s losing sleep over it. He just wants her, doesn’t know how to get to her. It’s been long enough now, so just make a mess already. That line makes my stomach flip, every time. “make a mess, lioness.” Ugh.
Okay so I just got online and I haven’t read much about analyzing the Kingsman 2 trailer yet.
But I’m just gonna say I think it’s significant that his hair isn’t styled??
Even when he woke up from the coma he styled his hair before anything else, it was slicked back when he was applying what I can only assume was aftershave. harry is super image conscious his hair is also darker and shorter here, more brown and not so blond.
Is this going to be some James Bond ‘I took the opportunity to ‘die’ for a little bit and just enjoy being dead’ bullshit
That room is suspect as hell too look at how it’s all white and padded yet scuffed??
I’m wondering if maybe this is part of the dream sequence we saw in the teaser. We saw the digital butterflies flying in 3d from Harry’s walls and Mr Pickle, even though we know at the very beginning of the movie Harry’s house and the Kingsman base blow up.
The trailer JUST came out like an hour ago so I haven’t had time to sit down and thoroughly comb through every frame for thoughts and projections, but I’m pulling out a few things because Harry’s comeback is particularly interesting and they’re giving us strange clues in the trailers
And I’m leaning toward this shot we see of Harry isn’t legitimate. More like a drug induced dream sequence. With the amount of food shots we see for Poppy (I know she has a diner but bare with me) and the golden bottles in the preview, what if they’re carrying a drug of some kind? Eggsy would be a test for it in some capacity, where he hallucinates Harry and Harry’s house - I’m guessing - after seeing something hinting at Harry being alive whether it be photos or videos or straight up seeing Harry.
I don’t think Harry’s not in it sincerely or anything, he totally is. But maybe not this specific shot.
Is anyone following me am I talking out my ass here
Ahh!! <333 Yes, congrats! :D Hmm, ok for prompts how about…Genos trying his best to be an ‘ideal bf’, researching and doing all this extra shit (probably failing poorly at what he has little exp for lol) until Saitama is like, “dude chill - I don’t need you to be an ideal bf or whoever else, I just need you to be ‘Genos’ for me.” And they continue on as themselves as they’ve always been. :‘3 No special other personas or titles required. :’D
Genos tapped his pen against the table nervously as he watched Saitama open the present in his hands. It was wrapped in glossy red paper, a yellow bow resting over the top. Saitama’s lips were pursed, his brows drawn downward slightly. He didn’t exactly look pleased and the cyborg couldn’t understand why. That was the fourth present he had been given that week. Genos would also like to note offhandedly that it was currently Tuesday.
Silver: Please just promise me you aren’t going to get my girlfriend killed. Flint: War is complicated. Silver: Yeah, but all I’m asking for is for you to tell me you’ll do everything in your power to make sure my girlfriend lives. Flint: War is hell. Silver: MY GIRLFRIEND, THOUGH. Flint: It’s only going to get worse from here on out. Silver: LISTEN. YOU HAD A BOYFRIEND, ONCE. Flint: True. Silver: In similar circumstances! I am pretty sure! you would not want him to get killed! even if it meant you would win the war! Flint: You’re not wrong. Silver: SO ABOUT MY GIRLFRIEND Flint: Listen, war is complicated.
