Lofticries
Purity Ring Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Bring, bring the thunder
And the loud, loud rain
Lead our woes asunder
'Neath the proud, proud veins

Of traits that bleed the gunmen
Of our pumping, earthly hearts
Ween our joys in plunder
Feel our shining teeth
Bet our hold on happiness

Bead-weighted chests with lofticries
Lofticries with trembling thighs
Weepy chests with weepy sighs
Weepy skin with trembling thighs

You must be hovering over yourself
Watching us drip on each other's sides
Dear brother, collect all the liquids off of the floor
Use your oily fingers
Make a paste, let it form

Let it seep through your sockets and ear holes
Into your precious, fractured skull
Let it seep, let it keep you from us
Patiently heal you
Patiently unreel you

Bead-weighted chests with lofticries
Lofticries with trembling thighs
Weepy chests with weepy sighs
Weepy skin with trembling thighs

You must be hovering over yourself
Watching us drip on each other's sides
Dear brother, collect all the liquids off of the floor
Use your oily fingers
Pick up paste, let it form

(Bead-weighted chests with lofticries
Lofticries with trembling thighs
Weepy chests with weepy sighs
Weepy skin with trembling thighs

You must be hovering over yourself
Watching us drip on each other's sides

Overall Meaning

The song "Lofticries" by Canadian electronic music duo Purity Ring, has intricate lyrics that seem to require a deeper interpretation. The song begins with the singer calling out for a storm to come and wash away all their worries, represented by the traits that cause harm like the "gunmen". The words indicate a sense of surrender to external forces that can either cause destruction or bring relief, as seen by the varied requests to bring rain, lead woes asunder, and feel the grittiness of life with shining teeth.


The next phrase uses the metaphor of bead-weighted chests with lofticries to symbolize the weight of unexpressed emotions. The word "lofticries" does not have a direct meaning, but it suggests the lifting of the heart and crying out with joy or pain. This state is then contrasted with weepy chests and skin with trembling thighs, which are associated with tears and grief. The image of hovering over oneself implies dissociation or detachment, as if watching oneself go through an experience without being fully present.


The mention of a "dear brother" collecting liquids from the floor and using them to make a healing paste creates an intriguing subplot. It could refer to the idea of needing support from someone who is close, but also recognizable as a separate entity. The liquids may symbolize different emotions or types of experiences that need to be processed and transformed into something positive. The theme of patience appears at the end of the song, with the phrase "Patiently heal you, patiently unreel you," indicating a process that takes time and effort.


Overall, "Lofticries" seems to be a meditation on the ups and downs of emotional life and the possibility of finding healing through surrender and connection with others. The lyrics are poetic and layered, inviting the listener to interpret them in their own way.
