Tira Me A Las Aranas works as a good introduction for the astounding Drunkship of Lanterns.
There are no actual words or lyrics for this song. All I can really tell you is that the words are loosely translated to "Throw me to the spiders".
It doesn't seem to be a reference to what is happening to Cerpin at that exact moment, but more like a reference to his travel in the Intertiatic ESP where the spiders crawled all over him and went inside him.
The song starts with ambient noises that continue throughout the composition.
A western, almost banjo, sounding guitar comes in and twangs away at its little riff. Eventually (not too long, the song is only 1:29) some underwater echoes come into the scene, and in the last 3 seconds of the song, it builds into a climax.
I won't lie to you, this is
definitely my least favorite song on the album. I just really don't feel
that it sounds all that great. Luckily it is really short, and it does
work great as an intro for the next song.
With that being said, let's continue to the Next Chapter of the Mars Volta Story.
You now have a chance to make your voice your opinion, whether you just have a line that just really gets you, or an entire song interpretation.
My name is Andrew Muller. I love creative art, music, television shows, movies, video games, and a good story.
If you had to find me somewhere, you would probably find me down at O'neils home cooking eating an organic sweet-potato bun breakfast sandwich with ham.
Among my friends, it's a "Muller Classic Move" to eat Mcdonald's at 2am because it's cheap and open 24/7. The joke here is that I'm an idiot.
I play drums, guitar, piano, and I write & perform music for My Goal Is Telepathy. Take a listen to the latest sound here.
