und immer mehr wird dir weniger wert
egal wie viel du auch tust
ivan im ernst
sag wieso bist du du dir nie genug?
ja eine riesige wut
hat in dir die schwärze genährt
aber sie gibt dir nen push
ihr zwei lebt in tiefer symbiose
zugleich zu müde zum tun
wie auch zu gierig zum ruhen
starrst zu den sternen
und übersiehst wie vielen deine kunst
einen teil ihres leidens nimmt
für deine fans live im netz
so wie Spiderman
ein held der sie einen moment
aus dem alltag rettet

ich wünsch dir ein happy meal
ein happy end und happy socks
für den steinigen weg
auf das du nicht endest wie eddie brock
und ist die dunkelheit nicht
von ivan lovric zu trennen
hoffe ich das sie dir nicht übern kopf wächst
wie venom

denn wer mit ungeheuern kämpft
muss zusehen das er nicht
zum ungeheuer wird
und wenn du in den abgrund blickst
dann blickt der abgrund auch in dich
abyss
starrst ein loch in eine waffe
und die waffe eins in dich
aus großer macht folgt große
verantwortung die dich dann erdrückt




selbst das Licht
wirft den Schatten den es dann frisst

Overall Meaning

The lyrics of Navy's song "Venom" delve deep into the themes of self-worth, inner demons, and the consequences of one's actions. The first verse speaks to a sense of diminishing self-value despite one's efforts, questioning why one never feels like they are enough. The imagery of a growing anger that nurtures darkness within oneself is powerful, suggesting a toxic relationship with negative emotions that both fuel and drive the individual forward. The mention of a symbiotic relationship between the singer and their inner fury portrays a complex dynamic of both reliance and exhaustion, where they are simultaneously too tired to act and too driven to rest. The act of gazing at the stars while overlooking the impact of one's art on others highlights a disconnect between personal struggles and the solace it may bring to others, likening the singer to a modern-day hero like Spiderman who momentarily saves people from their everyday struggles through their online presence.


The second verse shifts to a more hopeful tone, wishing the singer simple joys and comforts like a Happy Meal, a happy ending, and happy socks to accompany them on their difficult journey. The reference to not ending up like Eddie Brock, the character who becomes the villain Venom in the Spiderman universe, suggests a fear of succumbing to one's inner darkness and losing oneself to it. The mention of the darkness being inseparable from Ivan Lovric, possibly a reference to the artist or a significant figure, adds a layer of personal struggle and acceptance of one's inner demons, hoping that they do not consume the individual entirely. The analogy of the abyss staring back when one gazes into it emphasizes the idea that one must tread carefully when facing their own inner turmoil, as delving too deep may lead to becoming the very thing they fear.


The following lines echo the famous quote by Friedrich Nietzsche, "He who fights with monsters should look to it that he himself does not become a monster." This warns against the dangers of becoming what one opposes, urging caution and self-awareness in the battle against one's inner demons. The imagery of staring into a weapon that then turns back to face oneself symbolizes the internal struggles and conflicts that can arise when confronting one's own darkness. The mention of power leading to overwhelming responsibility that can crush an individual evokes the idea of the burdens that come with great abilities or influence. Finally, the reference to light casting shadows that it then consumes reflects the cyclical nature of inner struggles, where confronting one's shadows may consume them until they are resolved or integrated.


Overall, the lyrics of "Venom" by Navy explore the complexities of self-discovery, inner conflict, and the delicate balance between darkness and light within oneself. The song delves into the emotional turmoil of facing inner demons, the struggle to maintain one's identity amidst challenges, and the need for self-awareness and resilience in the face of adversity. Through poetic and introspective language, the song invites listeners to reflect on their own inner struggles and the importance of navigating them with caution, empathy, and a sense of responsibility towards oneself and others.
