Default TBM Song Meanings

I am horrible at interpreting song meanings, but I figured maybe those who are good at it can share their thoughts here.

Any starters?

i tried to make a song interpretation game, but no-one responded that made me sad, i really do love to see how songs get interpreted by different people.

what songs did you have in mind?

Which song do you want to be interpreted? I could give it a try,I just want to say that those are my interpretations,anyone else can have another.But I tried to analyze all songs and it kinda made sense to me

Question Blue

Would anyone care to explain the meaning behind Blue? I'm sure I could come up with something creative but if anyone knows the actual meaning than that would be easier.
I'm talking about the video specifically. Is it symbolic or just random?

someone on songmeanings.net speculated that it was different perspectives on the colour itself, which i thought was an interesting interpretation. my impression of it is how the outside world interferes with a relationship, and the narrator recognizes the lack of strength in the relationship but still hangs on. to get the actual meaning of the song you'd have to talk to the band.

i like songmeanings.net, it is a good way to get an idea of how people view things. it does bother me to no end how judgmental the people get. i see "you people are so stupid (insert diatribe here)" way too often.

She is trying to find who she is. The dolls are different personalities of herself and she is trying to figure out which one is the real her. She goes through the puzzle (aka spending time finding herself) and finally gets to a single point in the middle. She reaches in and keeps pulling at the rope and trying to see herself but she winds up chopping off her own head. She spent so much time asking who she was that she actually lost who she was. This is why you do not see the dolls and her in the same scene because they are in another reality also known as her head. "Plastic Blue invitations in my room" She is talking about the puzzle. Then she says "Plastic blue conversations" The puzzle represents conversations she is having with herself.

"Black tongue speak" When that line starts, the other dark personality of herself is actually saying the words. That type of thing. So two personalities are talking/singing. Not 100% sure if i am right but I am at least in the ballpark lol.

Default Forever

FOREVER

Which one is Speaking
1 = Personality One
2 = Personality two

1. 1-Today is the first of our numbers
2. 1-We're never asleep
3. 1-Sometimes there's a voice when I close my eyes
4. 1-Sometimes I can't hear you speak

5. 2-Did you learn to take cover
6. 2-Or are you running away?

7. 1-And you see right through me
8. 2-This shouldn't last forever
9. 1-You're so close
10. 2-Now it's time to say goodbye

11. 1-You wait for the sun in the morning
12. 1-I'm waiting for rain
13. 1-Sometimes you're too close when I close my eyes
14. 1-For now you're quiet again

15. 2-The story is over
16. 2-You never wanted the same
17. 2-Did you learn to take cover
18. 2-Or are you running away?

19. 1-And you see right through me
20. 2-This shouldn't last forever
21. 1-You're so close
22. 2-Now it's time to say goodbye

23. 1-Talk to me
24. 2-This voice is the faintest I've heard in the longest time
25. 1-Do you want to see this to the end?
26. 2-You know, you know I do

27. 1-And you see right through me
28. 2-This shouldn't last forever
29. 1-You're so close
30. 2-Now it's time to say goodbye

31. 1-Talk to me
32. 2-This voice is the faintest I've heard in the longest time

She is losing a part of herself and/or a personality. She talks with her other self in this song.

^ Interesting perspective! I just ran into this on the comment section of the updates. I thought it would be fun for everyone to read as well!

Walking with Strangers was all about elementary and high school. Many of the songs sound more mysterious or frightening than they really are. For example; Weekend on the WWS record is about how Rainbow and Falcore, who were childhood friends, used to turn out the lights in the house when their parents were gone and chase each other around in the dark. So.... if you know that the lyrics start to make a lot of sense. Chibii writes a lot of lyrics as well and there are stories behind many of those songs. So... keep digging .... I think it gets more and more interesting the deeper you go!
