After listening several times, I agree, that it sounds like it's about some sort of addiction. Could be a person, a habit, an item - or actual drugs/alcohol, which of course I hope it isn't.

 

Maybe he's addicted to chainsaws - they hurt him, right? :lmao:

 

In fact the song has grown on me as well now. It's still my least fave, but it slowly crawls into your head. Addictive. :mf_rosetinted: :teehee:

 

i think you're right! :lmao: He's a "slave to the rhythm" of that sweet chainsaw motor 

 

I was just thinking today how this song is like a little bug that crawls into your brain and makes a nest there where it lives & dances around. And the times when you aren't thinking of the song it's just sleeping.

I guess it makes sense if it's about addiction cause he made it addictive as f**k

But with a chainsaw, shackles are not a problem anymore... :teehee:

Maybe the shackles stand for the protective clothing he should wear for not getting hurt. :mf_rosetinted: :naughty:

Great. Now we have one song about Mika's cat and one about his chainsaw collection. What's next? "Platform Ballerinas" being about his dogs? :naughty:

It's grown on me as well, but not my favorite either. Curious, what's the worst song on the album, in your opinion?

 

Missed this question - atm worst song is Stay High, but I'm not keen on I Went To Hell Last Night, Blue and Platform Ballerinas either.

 

I think the harder question would be what is my favourite song?

From the "Le Fatto Quotidiano" interview:

 

Your current period is not simple.

I would say sad, but sadness is like a drug: it has an intoxicating effect.

 

With that quote, I'd say that's what Cry is about, sadness. It makes him cry, but he feels drawn towards it. I don't think I'd have made this connection without this interview, because for me, sadness certainly isn't something I find intoxicating or am drawn towards. Maybe I did as a teenager, but not anymore today.

 

I love finding these little clues about his songs in interviews. :teehee:

That's it, you're right! I would also never have interpreted it this way, but after reading this bit it totally makes sense!

Eso es, tienes razón! Tampoco lo hubiera interpretado de esta manera, pero después de leer este fragmento, ¡tiene sentido!

: thumb_yello:

Great discovery! The song speaks of sadness. I read the lyrics again...it's so sad...poor boy...he is very sad and he always always always with  smile...🥺
