So I read the lyrics, and it's extremely ambiguous. Is he talking to a love interest? Is he talking about mental torment? Who knows?
Here are the non-repeating stanzas for you convenience:
Diamond eyes That burn me and turn me to stone Crystalise And freeze me in clear monochrome Turn me to stone; do anything you want with me Turn me to stone; do anything you want Stereotomy We can make it together Do anything you want with me Do anything you want Scarlet minds Possess me and I feel no shame Silent knives Dissect me and I feel no pain Starlight beams Project me in red blue and green Velvet dreams Protect me when I hit the screen Turn me to stone Do anything you want with me Cover my eyes There's nothing more they need to see Turn me to stone Before there's nothing left of me Make me a rock And not what I appear to be Turn me to stone
Obviously, on the surface, it would seem as though it's just a patient undergoing some mental therapy involving stereotomy, and is being tormented by it emotionally. However, elements like "diamond eyes" and "we can make it together" seem to suggest that he might be addressing to a love interest. What do you think this song is actually about? Please let me know. TIA.
