Blasteroid
Mastodon Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Change your hair
Change your clothes
I'll rearrange your face for you

If you can breathe
When I am through
I'll give it all right back to you
I wanna drink some fucking blood
I wanna break some fucking glass
I wanna squeeze you till you're inside out
I want it all

Change your name
Change your eyes
Become the one who I despise

If you are sad
And need to cry
Then turn around and go outside

I wanna drink some fucking blood
I wanna break some fucking glass




I wanna squeeze you till you're inside out
I want it all

Overall Meaning

The lyrics to Mastodon's song, Blasteroid, are provocative, dark and uneasy. The song seems to be narrated by a character who is emotionally disturbed and violent. The first stanza, "Change your hair, change your clothes, I'll rearrange your face for you, if you can breathe when I am through, I'll give it all right back to you" depicts someone who wants to control and dominate another person while threatening to harm them. The lyrics "rearrange your face" suggest that the person might be physically disfigured, while "if you can breathe when I am through" implies something more sinister. The second stanza, "Change your name, change your eyes, become the one who I despise" reinforces this idea of control and dominance.


The chorus contains lines that seem to be expressing the violent and destructive desires of the character, "I wanna drink some fucking blood, I wanna break some fucking glass, I wanna squeeze you till you're inside out, I want it all." These are very graphic and explicit lyrics that suggest someone who is deranged and dangerous. The use of the profanity throughout the song further emphasizes the raw and visceral nature of the lyrics.


Overall, Blasteroid is a disturbing song, and the lyrics are not for the faint of heart. The imagery is unsettling, and the tone is very unsettling. The song does a good job of conveying a sense of danger and violence, and it is clear that the character speaking is not someone to be messed with.

I'm choosing between this, live version of Wolf Is Loose 2014, Divinations, Crystal Skull and Aqua Dementia. In my opinion best screams in entire metal industry
