Change (In The House Of Flies) Lyrics

Artist: Deftones
Album: White Pony

I watched you change
Into a fly
I looked away
You were on fire
I watched a change in you
It's like you never had wings
And you feel so alive
I've watched you change

I took you home
Set you on the glass
I pulled off your wings
Then I laughed
I watched a change in you
It's like you never had words
Now you feel so alive
I watched you change

It's like you never had...
annhh-ahah (6x)

I look at the cross
And I look away
Give you the gun
Blow me away
I watched a change in you
It's like you never had words
Now you feel so alive
I've watched you change
And you feel alive
You feel alive (2x)
I've watched you change
It's like you never had...

annhh-ahah (6x)
You change (3x)

I also am wondering what this song means.

I think it's about two people, and something changed for one of them that rocked their world. Could be drugs, friends, but either way the first person is left to try and figure out what happened, and is bewildered in the remaining solitude. But that might be way off. Excellent song, no matter what. Cheers m/

Two people were in love. He would have done anything for her, she was as good as gold. It's like a dream that fades away. She walks away and leaves him alone in the dark. He loses his faith in God and looks away from the cross, just wondering why it is that God would take away something like this away from him. It's like taking his life away.

Haha, I guess it's a personal interpretation, but I personally believe it to mean that it's about a relationship that ended, but for the narrator, he can't get over his love for this person, and just wants them to come back, so he can "ground" them (with the "I pulled off your wings" bit), and he wants them to stay with him, but it doesn't happen. It also involves religion, as Nineveh has mentioned, and suicidal themes as well. An amazing song whatever it truly means.

He met this (fly) on the wall, You know the quiet shy girl. He watched her change into this hot little number. That wasnt what he was expecting so he pulled off her wings. (He started destroying her selfesteem) maybe calling her a hoer and a slut.

He gave her a gun, meaning he gave her a reason to leave so she blew him away, meaning she blew him off and left him.

now she feels so alive,meaning she can go on and live her life with no regrets.

This song is so makes me come it and imagine i'm soooo in love with a guy who loves me too.....kiss me baby...
by shahid akbar on 11/20/2009 9:39pm
the same i have done, i pulled the wings of a fly only to give her incentive to leave me, but the truth was i more than in love with her, i fucking admired her.. it was my self esteem that was broken and it was never her fault, so thus i gave her the gun, cause i know i was to pathetic to end it.. where ever you are.. there is not a day i regret such a Change.. i love you...

I read somewhere years ago where Chino said he picked up a virgin groupie at a show one time, took her virginity, took her to the after show party at his house, (maybe those 2 are reversed) and then watched her turn into a total whore with a bunch of other guys the rest of the night. 0-60 in .02 seconds
