LYRICS:

My knife – it’s sharp and chrome
Come see inside my bones
All of the fiends are on the block
I’m the new king, I’ll take the queen
‘Cause in here we’re all anemic
In here – anemic and sweet so

Go get your knife, go get your knife
And come in
Go get your knife, go get your knife
And lay down
Go get your knife, go get your knife
Now kiss me

Oooh well I can float here forever
In this room we can’t touch the floor
In here we’re all anemic
In here – anemic and sweet so

Go get your knife, go get your knife
And come in
Go get your knife, go get your knife
And lay down
Go get your knife, go get your knife
Now kiss me

Ohh I could float here forever
Ohh Anemic and sweet
Ohh I could float here forever
Ohh Anemic and sweet so

Go get your knife, go get your knife
And come in
Go get your knife, go get your knife
And lay down
Go get your knife, go get your knife
Get filthy
Go get your knife, go get your knife
And kiss me

ANALYSIS: White Pony is by far, in my and my husband’s mind, Deftones best CD. I guess we aren’t the only ones who think so because the song “Elite” won a Grammy and 2001. It’s amazing to say this because of the genre. It isn’t very often that you hear a metal band gets a Grammy, at least not in my limited experience. I can say I LOVE every single song on this CD. It makes it very difficult to pick a favorite song, but after much debate my husband and I picked out this song from this CD as the stand out. Deftones is amazing musically, but as you can tell sometimes their lyrics are disturbing, but it sets a certain mood. It’s dark, mysterious and it gets my mind going, especially on my current TOP SECRET work-in-progress. What about Knife Party gets me? The opening guitar, the way the drums kick in, and then Chino’s haunting voice coming in as the music slows again. The music intensifies with the words, the singing and finally the scream. There is one qualm I have with this song, the chick singing in the background. I know that Chino loves this part of the song, but it kind of, well, totally creeps me out. It fits the song, it fits the mood and despite the creep factor it has be aching to write. So, guess what I am going to go do?
What’s your favorite Deftone’s CD? And can you pick a song, or are you stuck with the same dilemma as me–there’s just too many good ones!
And I am just going to come out and say it, the new CD, can’t beat any of the first three…and it doesn’t, in my mind!
