Glycerine Lyrics

It must be your skin I'm sinking in
Must be for real 'cause now I can feel
And I didn't mind, it's not my kind
It's not my time to wonder why

Every thing's gone white and every thing's gray
Now you're here, now you're away
I don't want this, remember that
I'll never forget where you're at

Don't let the days go by, Glycerine, Glycerine

I'm never alone, I'm alone all the time
Are you at one or do you lie
We live in a wheel where everyone steals
But when we rise, it's like strawberry fields

If I treated you bad, you bruise my face
Couldn't love you more, you got a beautiful taste
Don't let the days go by
Could have been easier on you

I couldn't change though I wanted to
Should have been easier by three
Our old friend 'Fear' and you and me
Glycerine, Glycerine

Don't let the days go by, Glycerine
Don't let the days go by, Glycerine, Glycerine
Glycerine, Glycerine

Bad mood whine again
Bad mood whine again
As she falls around me

I needed you more when we wanted us less
I could not kiss, just regress
It might just be clear, simple and plain
Well, that's just fine, that's just one of my names

Don't let the days go by
Could have been easier on you, you, you
Glycerine, Glycerine, Glycerine, Glycerine

I think that when it comes to the meaning of a song everyone interprets it differently.... That's the beauty of music, you're meant to interpret it in your own way....

For the person saying they couldn't find a Glycerine? Glycerine is a sweet substance, barely toxic. It's used in some medication, cough syrups, preserved goods like cookies, and sometimes used in theatrical plays to create the look of tears.

Glycerine itself is not explosive. When added to the proper mixture of acids it becomes highly explosive. Nitroglycerin. If people choose to believe the explosive therory it works because the mixing of two people in a relationship (he is the acid & and she is the glycerine) can be explosive.

I cannot find any meaning of the work GLYCERINE where it is EXPLOSIVE. It is used as a base in most cosmetics & K-Y Jelly or lubricants. The arts are relatable to each individual differently.

Pete is right, while the meaning of the song can be argued, Glycerine is an ingredient in explosives. It's most likely a metaphor ablout an explosive relationship.
