Does anyone else think Bone House sounds a lot like Rage Against the Machine? Every time I hear it I can't help thinking that.
I read in another thread that someone's wife thinks DW sounds like RATM in general, but I only really notice it in this song.

As a side note I don't like RATM, but I loooove Bone House :wacko:

Bone House does sound a bit like RATM (except for the vocals). And I like Rage.

just in case anyone is keeping score

There's one particular part where Alison sounds really Ragey to me. Where she sings "That's all you'll hear, When I go missing" the second time.

the opening moments of Bone House live can only be described as "bust your shit open"

DUUUUUDE. i think that EVERY TIME i hear that part. she sounds like him. as for the rage discussion, i don't particularly like ratm but i like tdw; as for bone house, it's not my favorite but i still like it. i think she sounds crazy, like actually goes crazy in the end

I skip the studio version. It's much better live sadly.

I think the moog riff sounds a lot like Daft Punk and I like that.
And for the record RATM live was one of the worst shows I've seen.

Agreed. My favorite (at the moment) too. I think the way she gets kinda loud and crazy, at least when I saw them, did it for me.

i was looking for the other 'Bone House' discussion ... im going to link the 2 when i find it

basically i was thinking about the song interpretation in a new way the other day

as if a spiritual entity was being called down by an embodied entity for the job of doing real things in the world

sort of like an offering to spirits whose work is undone that they can come be in the bone house to finish their vision

hadnt thought of it that way until recently ... this discussion is already occuring in a thread around here... maybe in the tour section

I always think of the song as her building a 'house for your bones' i.e. an earthly body for a spirit.

yes that is exactly the one ... i thank you so much for finding that and really dont know how you managed it but wow!

that single page really resonated my mind to some things that i have been thinking over & over upon relative to bones

thanks again ... it really does sort of belong here in this thread and i thought that some time ago as well

this song always reminds me of rammstein's 'Stein um stein' with the difference that TDW has done better housebulding song, but gonna post here lyrics translation anyway
have plans, big plans
I'll build you a house
Every stone will be a tear
and you will never move out
Yes, I'll build a little house for you
Has no windows, no door
Inside it is dark
And no light penetrates within

Yes, I'll make you a home
And you will be part of the whole thing

Stone by stone, I wall you in
Stone by stone
I will always be with you

Without clothes, without shoes
You watch me at my work
With feet in cement
You brighten up the foundation
there will be a garden outside
And nobody will hear you scream

Stone by stone, I wall you in
Stone by stone
I will always be with you

what a beating, what a hammering
Outdoors it fades to dusk
All nails stand to attention
Into your body-wood I ram-

Stone by stone, I wall you in
Stone by stone
And nobody can hear you scream

well thats certainly visceral but it seems pretty intense like the dead weather

its certainly not got any metaphorical in its message

yeah, they usually rely on strenght of the message combined with vocalists specific voice and cold industrial arrangement and usually second meaning is nowhere to be found ; but I dont consider it as a bad thing,

some of the Alison's lyrics are more about an automatic writing sort of thing ( No Wow is best example imo, or Im just that dumb) where she's mixing random thoughts around one theme and pounds out some incredible atmosphere rather than some story or phylosophical (which by most of the lyricwriters that attempt to do that turns into pseudophylosophical) thought, that's pretty effin amazing thing
