  • This party is old and uninviting
    Participants all in black and white
    You enter in full blown technicolor
    Nothing is the same after tonight

    If the world would fall apart
    In a fiction worthy wind
    I wouldn't change a thing
    Now that you're here

    Yeah, love is a verb here in my room
    Here in my room, here in my room

    You enter and close the door behind you
    Now show me the world as seen from the stars
    If only the lights would dim a little
    I'm weary of eyes upon my scars

    Pink tractor beam into your incision
    Head spinning as free as dervish's whirl
    I came here expecting next to nothing
    So thank you for being that kind of girl
    That kind of girl
    That kind of girl
    That kind of girl
    That kind of girl
    That kind of girl
    That kind of girl
    That kind of girl
    That kind of girl
    That kind of girl
    That kind of girl Writer/s: Ben Kenney, Brandon Charles Boyd, Christopher E. Kilmore, Jose Anthony II Pasillas, Michael Aaron Einziger

  • Marcelo from Manassas, VaIf only art were so easy. To most this song could mean about sex. But to me, it has a wider spectrum. This song is very special to me because I've heard it over and over again since 2004 That's 16 years!

    Until this day. I still wonder what it is about. I think it's a spiritual song. About how we can see much better when we don't think of anything at all. What color is nothing. Black. And what is technicolor. All of the spectrum of light.

    So. In conclusion. In order to find spirit you find it within nothing. That there is something in nothing.
  • Tim from Pgh, PaCould be a double entendre.
  • Chris from Norfolk, VaI believe the pink tractorbeam is a reference to VALIS, a novel by Phillip K. Dick, in which a pink laser gives the main character special powers. The reason I think this is because there is also a reference to Dick's novel, Do Androids Dream of Electric Sleep in Talk Shows on Mute. Brandon Boyd must be a big fan of Dick so go check out his books. And get your minds out the gutter, lol.
  • Adm from Ft Smith, Arit sounds like this is an explanation of a boy losing his virginity. from the line "Nothing is the same after tonight" is where i get this. theres def sex going on. this sounds like a story of an experienced girl taking a boys virginity.
  • Timmy from Mukilteo, Wathis is the greatest love song ever.
  • Molly from Os, CtThis song is so...profound, sexual! Love it.
  • Gabby from Winston Salem, Ncso was Carolyn Murphey a slut? i could believe it.
  • Ellie from Mesa, AzThis song also refers to meeting his former girlfriend, Carolyn Murphy, for the first time.
  • Brian from South Bend, Ini believe that pink tractorbeam into your incision is a reference from the movie logans run.
  • Alicia from Nashville, TnI have always thought there was more to this song. At a concert Boyd stated that this was an older song of their's but they never played it in the smaller clubs and bars because they were afraid of getting beat up.?
  • Nate from Aurora, Ili agree with all o you...great song too
  • Tim from Abilene, Tx"my pink tractor beam into your incesion" cant get any more sexual than that
  • Erika from Yuma, Azsexy above all outher explanations
