Hi all BTBAM lovers.

Trying to figure out what the Prequel to the Sequel song is all about. I read somewhere that it has something to do with Lost Perfection but how? musically? Lyrically? Little help just to help my curiosity.

Cheers.

The headless lover of three...
an unspeakable affair...

The lady on the hill creates a glorious departure from her everyday life.
Constant swelling of the ankles...A pleasant cry for help...
She began to unfold her story.
A grieving widow mothered this headless wonder.
A perfect crime, that soon lived on. A different life it had to develop...
gripped by every limb it could hold, the lifeless ideas it grew onto its own.
A much needed surrender.
Trees soon started to grow from what seemed like a lifeless neck...
From a monster to a beauty in quick months...
its life seemed to be on its way to a rare freedom.
It decided it should take advantage of this idea.
(the average traveler hints at this every single day of their lives)
A mixture of plantings soon took course in its body...
a spectacle non-the-less,
Walking proud through life letting its branches guide the way.
A path which seemed to be covered in sunshine...
it must be human, for its qualities seem
to outdo even the grandest occupant of the town...
this started to catch the attention of the un-branched...
it had never experienced an affection of this kind...
a wonderful and frightening new obstacle in its life.
Years went by as it finally found true love...
the love of others...three to be exact.
Letting them into every secret...feeding from every branch...
every part used for their lives...
)This went on with no negative scents 'til the 5th year came around...)
It noticed its walking seemed more staggered than normal.
The breeze didn't flow like it used to...
the heart seemed to pound slower and slower...
what caused this?
It seen was noticed that these three had torn every branch, every single stem...
torn to its last life...
how hadn't it noticed a drastic change in the surroundings...
It didn't think anything could go this wrong.

"Comfort..."

It thought life was constant
happiness if constant happiness was all that was given out.
(It left its entire existence up to these three lovers)
hints and all, they did as they pleased...
and not it's starting to wilt away.
(They will see this LOST PERFECTION. It will come back around...
will the newborn live to tell this story?
Rewind.)

Lyrics mean nothing. STFU and listen to the music.

Music is sound, it shouldn't matter how it is created or what it is about.

It's about a bag of dicks.

If you read the subtext, you'll notice BTBAM is just a big bag of (little) dicks.

Why not? Meaning adds so much more to a song.

I'm guessing your a fan of this:

Come on, you have to agree with me that music is more than "just sound".


It IS just sound. What I was saying was that it CAN have meaning, but it's not important.

If I thought music was just sound I'd be a fan of that.

You will find that the best composers are able to convey feeling and emotion with just sound.

Yes yes ofcourse, but I find it a little degrading to call it "just sound" as fumbduck did.
I mean, when I listen to what I find beautiful music I wouldn't call it just sound, but more like a piece of art, you know?

Also I tend to have more respect for composer that can put emotion through music, or write lyrics that actually have some meaning in them rather then some bullshit about falling in love.

Its about earspacers, wearing your guitar high, and neckbeards.
Quote by Ultraussie
I want to try that while playing the opening riff to "Tempting Time".

0-0-0-13-0-0-0-0-13 or something like that alalalala but It;s so heavy and off time and awesome and you could not f**k anyone to it.

Or bullshit pretentious philosophical themes like BTBAM.


I don't understand why people take btbam lyrics seriously, I find tommy's lyrics awful, sometimes humorous.
Cette nuit j'ai rêvé que je mâchais ses yeux
Après avoir crevé par accès de furie
Ta replète panse d'helminthes blancs nourrie,
Trop prompte à déféquer le fruit d'un vit sanieux.

Yeah, the lyrics are really bad even if the concepts behind them can be pretty interesting.

If it's the prequel to the sequel, doesn't that make it the original? Or is it some part of the canon that lies between the original and the sequel, in which case, wouldn't the prequel to the sequel be the sequel, and the sequel be a trilogy? Or is it a "midquel" to the original? Or is it differentiated because it's tangential?
