Tira Me A Las Aranas

Tira Me A Las Aranas works as a good introduction for the astounding Drunkship of Lanterns.

TheRealMusician Recommends:

If you want to take marketing your music to another level, then I can't recommend enough John Oszajca's music marketing manifesto. My favorite aspect of his complete program was his stance on email marketing, where he really leverages the that "1000 true fans" philosophy.

His website is a bit hokey (Flaming guitars? Seriously?), but his program really shows independant artists how to get a leg-up on signed artists.

The String Quartet Tribute- The only version of the song I could find.

The Lyrics

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 Music

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.

The De-loused In The Comatorium 100% Complete Song Translation Guide Is Here!

Although my online album review that is free on this site has many great interpretations, it only gives definitions for about 100 of the lines in the album.

If you haven't heard about it already, I've written a vast expansion onto this interpretation. After writing this guide, you guys were so excited about it, that I was encouraged to take it even further and write interpretations for every single line in the album.

I delved deeply into the storybook that Cedric Bixler-Zavala wrote, into the album, and drew from every resource that I could find to create book that translates and describes every line in the book.

This project is called the "Deloused In The Comatorium Song Translation Guide", and you can find it here for purchase.

The De-loused In The Comatorium Song Translation Guide has multiple interpretations for all 400+ lines and lyrics contained within this incredible album.


Do you have any alternate interpretations from De-loused in the Comatorium?

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.

About The Writer

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.
