Spidersong

Postby david_style6 » Tue Oct 12, 2010 5:34 pm

No more promises, I have made them before and broken them
Give me the go ahead,
I'll undress myself for you if you're at all interested now

I'm growing legs,
I'm the spider, I'm the spider
I'm growing legs
I'm the spider, I'm the spider
Crawl inside her, I'm the- HEY!

Oh, I know your pain (Oh, I feel you, baby)
You like I plagued by the flies inside your brain
I'm creeping up your veins
Are you smart enough and small enough to play this game?

I'm growing legs,
I'm the spider, I'm the spider
I'm growing legs
I'm the spider, I'm the spider
Crawl inside her, I'm the- WHOA!

I better watch my back around you
You've got the moves, the shoes, the 'do, you got me (oh no, no, no, no)
And I want you to know I want to
You've got those tired eyes, all the time
You've got those tired eyes, all the time
You've got those tired eyes, all the time
Yeah, you need someone to bring you to bed

I'm growing legs,
I'm the spider, I'm the spider
I'm growing legs
I'm the spider, I'm the spider
(I want you to know I want to)

(I am too afraid to dig you, I can't find a word to speak.
If I could I'd talk so good that you would be with me.)

I am cold, too cool to call you, far too stoned to leave my bed
I'll write this song to win your kiss but stay asleep instead
I miss you, girl. You're all that makes me true.

I'm going to go ahead and say it's definitely about sex. I'm growing legs = a boner. Crawled inside her is kinda obvious from there.
Self-inflicted or not, I find myself on the farthest star, foreign to everything like I woke up with a German tongue.

then wouldnt it just be "I'm growing A leg"? maybe theres something behind the sex.

I think he was just being poetic about it. I feel like I read my idea from something else before and didn't come up with it on my own... Not Sure.

I've always thought more of this song as saying Max is making a girl fall in love with him, getting under her skin. For instance he says he is creeping up her veins, which lead to the heart.

Why he uses the reference of the spider though, idk. Maybe because by "growing legs" he shrinks down to teh size of a spider. Maybe because some spiders are venemous. Her feelings for him are like a poison creeping through her veins because he is only going to hurt her.

I remember reading about that on Song Meanings.

I'd have to agree about the point that he is getting to a girl. Sorta like he is making a web that catches 'the flies inside her brain'. He is trying to get her to bed and once he does he's "far to stoned to call" as in he has concurred and gone. If anyone has heard him in the album Razia's Shadow he plays the first antagonist, which so happens to be a spider. He even uses "I'm a spider, crawl insider her" in that song. To me this implies that being a spider is a bad thing.
I am a fool in love with time.

something to note is that with many spiders, after the male sleeps with a female the female kills the male... might be worth it to examine the song in that light.

you might be on to something Scott.
"I better watch my back around you."
maybe she's out to get him?
I miss you, girl. You're all that makes me true.
