Rocket Skates
Deftones Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

You're red, soaking wet.
I'm right next to you.
You're red, soaking wet.
Lets writhe, let me see you trip.
One move that will keep you wet.
Lets fall in a long sadistic trance.
Put the keys in our hands.

Guns. Razors. Knives.
(Fuck with me)
Guns. Razors. Knives

You're red soaking wet.
I'm right next to you.
You're red, soaking wet.
Lets sail in this sea of charms.
Lets drown underneath the stars.
Lets drink with our weapons in our hands.
Lets sleep in this trance.

Guns. Razors. Knives.
(Fuck with me)
Guns. Razors. Knives

You're red soaking wet.
I'm right next to you.
You're red soaking wet.

Guns. Razors. Knives.
(Fuck with me)
Guns. Razors. Knives.

You're red soaking wet.
I'm right next to you.
You're red soaking wet.
I'm right next to you.
You're red soaking wet.

Overall Meaning

The lyrics to Deftones' song "Rocket Skates" are intense and full of passionate, almost violent imagery. The first line, "You're red, soaking wet," sets the tone for the rest of the song. It's unclear whether the "you" in the song is a person or a metaphor for something else entirely, but the repetition of the line emphasizes its importance. The second line, "I'm right next to you," establishes a sense of intimacy and connection between the two characters in the song.


The next set of lines, "Let's writhe, let me see you trip / One move that will keep you wet / Let's fall in a long sadistic trance / Put the keys in our hands," are even more sexually charged and violent. The use of the word "sadistic" in particular implies that the relationship between the two characters is not entirely consensual. The mention of "keys" could refer to access to something dangerous or forbidden.


The chorus of the song repeats the phrase "Guns. Razors. Knives." over and over again. This could be interpreted as a reference to the weapons the two characters might be using, or as a way of emphasizing the danger and excitement of their relationship. The repetition of the phrase creates a hypnotic effect, reinforcing the idea of being trapped in a "sadistic trance."


Overall, "Rocket Skates" is a complex and intense song that blurs the lines between sex, violence, and danger. It's unclear exactly what is happening between the two characters, but the insistent repetition of certain phrases creates a feeling of urgency and intensity that is unique to Deftones' music.
