Vega, Suzanne - Straight Lines Lyrics




There's a sound
Across the alley
Of cold metal
Touching skin

And you can see
If you look in her window
That she has gone and cut
Her hair again

In straight lines
Straight lines

Those soft golden lights in the morning
Are now on her wooden floor
The wind has swept them through the apartment
She don't need them
Any more
Any more
Any more...

She's cut down
On her lovers
Though she still dreams
Of them at night

She's growing straight lines
Where once were flowers
She is streamlined
She is taking the shade down
From the light

To see the straight lines
Straight lines

She wants to cut through the circles
That she has lived in before
She wants to finally kill the delusions
She won't need them
Any more
Any more
Any more...

But there's a sound
Across the alley
Of cold metal
Too close to the bone

And you can see
If you look in her window
The face of a woman
Finally alone

Behind straight lines
Straight lines

    I reckon this song is about a murderess who buries her exes in a patch of grass somewhere, but is then discovered, arrested and imprisoned

    Sid

    Nope, it's about a woman finding her independence,
    " She wants to cut through the circles
    , That she has lived in before.
    She wants to finally kill the delusions
    ,
    She won't need them any more."
    She is cutting her hair off as a metaphor for reinvention.

    Digital Deathsquid

    @Sid Huh. I figured the lines with the most significance were

    There's a sound across the alley
    Of cold metal touching skin
    ...
    She's cut down on her lovers
    Though she still dreams of them at night
    She's growing straight lines where once were flowers
    ...
    She wants to finally kill the delusions
    ...
    There's a sound across the alley
    Of cold metal too close to the bone
    And you can see if you look in her window
    The face of a woman finally alone
    Behind straight lines

    That last line always makes me think "behind bars"

    Sid

    @Digital Deathsquid She is contemplating suicide, but doesn't go through with it, so she cuts her hair instead. Men are the cause and reason.
    It's feminism, so you might be onto a hidden message about women wanting to kill men , but it is just that simple, dark, but simple.

  2. The Psychic Economist

    she's cut down on her lovers
