Heretic Klick Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

i'm coming up only to hold you under
I'm coming up only to show you wrong
And to know you is hard, we wonder
To know you all wrong, we were

(we won-)

I'm coming up only to hold you under
I'm coming up only to show you wrong
And to know you is hard, we wonder
To know you all wrong, we were





(we won-)

Overall Meaning

These lyrics in Heretic Klick's song The Funeral contain a very dark and haunting imagery about someone who is coming up to hold the addressee under water. The symbolism of being held under water is a powerful metaphor for suffocating, drowning or being consumed by a force that is beyond one's control. It is unclear who the singer is in these lyrics, but what is clear is that they are coming up only to hold the addressee down and show them the error in their ways. The tone of the lyrics is sinister and accusatory, suggesting that the addressee has done something wrong that they need to pay for.


The second half of the lyrics, "And to know you is hard, we wonder, To know you all wrong, we were," adds to the mystique and darkness of the song. The singer seems to be confessing that they did not know the addressee well and that their perception of them was completely wrong. It is possible that the addressee was misunderstood or wrongly accused of something, and the singer is coming up to show them the error of their ways. The repetition of the line "we won-" is ambiguous and could suggest a victory or a defeat, but ultimately, it leaves the interpretation open to the listener.


Overall, Heretic Klick's song The Funeral is a deep and thought-provoking song that explores the idea of power and control over others. The lyrics contain a sense of mystery and danger, leaving the listeners to interpret the meaning of the song in their own way.
