you'd think he'd be less esoteric in a song that opens with speak to me in a language i can hear

i mean maybe i can hear it but it doesn't make any sense

i've always taken it as kinda like something graceful that never happens to him is happening to him

i know i'll make it, love can last forever
graceful swans of never topple to the earth (something graceful comes down to where i am)

maybe?

maybe he's singing about jerking off and when he shoots out his load the pure white sperms fall to the floor like swans of never toppling to the earth
they're graceful and they'll never make a baby
the swans of never...

I once read an interpretation of Mayonaise that said it was about coming out of the closet.

"I'm rumored to the straight and narrow"

Like him being straight is just a rumour, see?

i see it like this:

swan of never topple to the earth
swan song of never topple to the earth
last song of never topple to the earth
i don't want this to end but I topple to the earth
i don't want this to end but it's all falling down.

eh.
and he's being graceful about it. or trying anyways.


and song 99, related to 99 floors?

a swan of never is a metaphor for what we will never have in life

might have to do with the blasphemy in his old jangly walk
my guess, a song about his first gay experience

lots of pieces to this fine puzzle http://forums.netphoria.org/wwwboard/icons/icon6.gif

i mean nothing makes your walking jangly more than a night of butthurtin'

and as bill's #1 advisor and bestest friend will agree, it* IS blasphemy

I think that a lot of SP lyrics have no literal meaning... they aren't all complex decipherable metaphors. But I also don't think this makes them bullshit. There is still intention behind them, the same way an abstract piece of art isn't just bullshit.

reprise85
10-28-2012, 03:32 PM
yeah i agree there. just because you dont know what you're saying doesn't mean your not saying something meaningful. i look at a lot of my old stuff and see meaning where i never consciously intended it

- toppled to earth

like Leda's swan

or Saraswati's swan, the goddess of music and knowledge.

I always imagined some mystical swan like that.

I always thought of it like the ideals that you think you want but can never achieve fade away when you accept your real life
Graceful swans = beautiful, idealized dreams/aspirations
of never = unattainable, causing you pain/shame
topple to the earth = fade away, leave your worldview

Nah, a Silverfuck is a fuck where you cum 2nd. That's why the person who cums 1st shouts out "YES!" because they know they've won.

I've always thought silver fuck was supposed to be 'the greatest fuck you' you can get, which is when you lie to yourself.

Graceful Swan Of Never = Graceful son.
and totally this. didn't we figure this out back in 99?
