Default Okay what the fuck does "we share the same monkey disease" even mean

Also suck me through your saliva screws.

1997 Billy was trying a bit hard

far fetched, but HIV is thought to have come from chimpanzees that were hunted by humans and the disease somehow mutated when we came in contact with their blood via butchering the animal

1. chimps aren't monkeys
2. hopefully bill doesn't have HIV
3. yes this is radically far fetched

i thought it was from ppl having sexy times with monkeys but that might just be the filipino version (they are a zesty race)

Wasn't "My Mistake" about him regretting the firing of ol' Jimbo?

If so, "Monkey disease" is probably just shorthand for "We're a couple of crazy musicians with the same passions and the same faults".

"Give me my grape of your peace" could be extending the proverbial olive branch.

the line goes to mean billy and jc share an unspeakable musical bond that is irreplaceable. this has always been my thoery, and it was only strengthened when bill inconsequentially wrote on one of his blog posts regarding jimmy, "we speak the same weird monkey language". it's just that. i dunno about saliva screws.

that whole song, especially the refrain, always felt like a sincere and sorrowful lament for jc's departure with the band to me, just like Machina and actually most of billy's solo and SP2.0 stuff points toward him grieving the death of his band, the one thing that truly felt as safe as true love to him.

These songs and lyrics aren't about anything. Has current Billy taught you nothing?

surely this is about Courtney or whoever his love interest was between MC & this

"saliva screws" sounds like a bond made from a kiss or something. it's kind of weird y'all would think this song's about Jimmy, lol.
