Black Honey
Thrice Lyrics


I keep swinging my hand through a swarm of bees 'cause I
I want honey on my table
I keep swinging my hand through a swarm of bees 'cause I
I want honey on my table

But I never get it right
No, I never get it right

I keep swinging my hand through a swarm of bees
I can't understand why they're stinging me
But I'll do what I want
I'll do what I please
I'll do it again till I've got what I need

I'll rip and smash through the hornet's nest
Do you understand I deserve the best?
Till you do what I want
I'll do what I please
I'll do it again till I've got what I need

I try to stick this pin through a butterfly 'cause I
I like all the pretty colors
It just fell apart, so I flung it in the fire
To burn with all the others

'Cause I never get it right
No, I never get it right

I keep swinging my hand through a swarm of bees
I can't understand why they're stinging me
But I'll do what I want
I'll do what I please
I'll do it again till I've got what I need

I'll rip and smash through the hornet's nest
Do you understand I deserve the best?
Till you do what I want
I'll do what I please
I'll do it again till I've got what I need

This time, I'll get it right
This time, I'll get it right
It's gonna be this time, I'll get it right
God, let it be this time I get it right

So I'm cutting that branch off the cherry tree
Singing, "This will be my victory,"
Then I
See them coming after me
And they're following me across the sea
And now they're stinging my friends and my family
And I
Don't know why this is happening
But I'll do what I want
I'll do what I please
I'll do it again till I've got what I need

I keep swinging my hand through a swarm of bees 'cause I
I want honey on my table

1. In Exile
2. Digital Sea
3. Come All You Weary
4. Image of the Invisible
5. Stare at the Sun


So hard to only list 5 haha.


(edit for improved word-smithing.)

Allan Rabanales Art Bro, these guys have been highly underrated since the early 2000s. Check out:


1. Image of the Invisible
2. Red Sky
3. Of Dust and Nations
4. In Exile
5. All That's Left
6. Stare at the Sun


Also, check out their Alchemy Index Vol I, II, III, IV. Every volume represents one of the four elements and additionally represents a music style.


1. Digital Sea
2. The Whaler
3. Broken Lungs
4. The Sky is Falling
5. Moving Mountains
6. Come All You Weary


I could add so much more, but I don't want to over-saturate this message with so much good music XD.

Extremely powerful. Each person driving the car, represents a different person in power, driving the next generation towards the same outcome, and not learning the lesson. Hence the line "can't understand why they're stinging me".

The kids going through the field, led to make the same wrong decision as the rest, because "this time we'll get it right, gotta let it be this time.. Get it right!".

Love this song, and powerful video.

I thought it was about a bear going out into the woods and getting honey, and confused as to why it hurts. 😂

Frank

I think you have a great interpretation of the video… the song reminds me of addiction, so I’m curious if that’s an undertone here

Beth Mc

That’s the wonderful thing about music. You can sing a song to 85,000 people & they will sing it back for 85,000 different reasons. But I like your interpretation.
