Liner Notes:Daniel Merriweather "Chainsaw" (Trackademicks Remix)



Givin' myself to you is like giving myself to a Chainsaw/
You keep cutting me open wide, Is that the only thing you're good for?/


Indeed.

Been there.

Scratch that.

I live there!

But seriously, tell me what it is. What is so enticing about self-inflicted pain. I understand being intrigued by something you have no knowledge or understanding of. You know, like when toddlers all inevitably go after electric sockets. The epitome of an ignorant-ass thing to do. But can you blame the baby? No. A baby's mind is filled with darkness... Only until the light of knowledge and experience pushes out allllll of the darkness.

Truth is, most toddlers grow up without being electrocuted because they ultimately learn after being told "NO" repeatedly. So why is this not the case for the laws of attraction?

From both observation and personal experience, when someone attempts to dissuade someone else from going after another person who may not be the best thing for them, it rarely works. In fact, it's quite the opposite. There is something Sweet about that Taboo.

And many times, the experience is just as one could have expected... A Roller Coaster with the highest highs and lowest lows. And in a way, those things reconcile themselves. Depending your outlook on life, some would argue that Happiness is paid for with Sadness. Pleasure with Pain.

Am I crazy?
Who isn't?

Tangent?
Probably.

Nonsense to some?
Sure of it.

Helpful to others?
Of Course.

Either way it goes, my homie Daniel Merriweather has taken a perfect snap shot with these lyrics. Its funny because both the original and my remix make this dichotomy of the "Sweetest Taboo" feel way more pleasant than it actually feels.

Now, are you holding the Chainsaw or are you getting getting hacked up by standing in the way?

Holler!!!!
