i don't think intimacy is the right word for that album.

i feel like kevin shields abuse of effects (distortion esp.) is a metaphor for love- most people's perception of love is probably not as it really exists. you try and change it around to make it more appealing but in doing that you lose sight of what it really is.

so a word that encapsulates that i guess.

Loveless? I think intimacy includes that and far better depicts the overall ideas.
When you sleep is a prime example of the albums depiction of intimacy.

idk just "intimacy" gives good feelings

i feel like the overall tone of the album is less positive than that. it's not that happy or optimistic about love.

that song is not about love that went right btw- it ends with the person walking away

disenchanted?

I find it too vague to ascribe any specific meaning to. That's part of the reason why I like it: It's a largely incomprehensible piece of guitar fuckery which from my perspective doesn't really try to be more than that. And I'm reasonably confident that all the lyrics were completely made up on the spot after the instrumentals were composed, so I'd hesitate to try to draw any theme from the small set of the words that are even clearly understandable.

Loveless is about mistaking certain emotions for love, when in reality love is all about intimacy, but since the album is so shrouded it seems as though it isn't intimate. However, at the same time it feels incredibly intimate, it's almost like you're spying on a couple making love through a pink curtain

This is such a beautiful album

I stare from broken window
Eye's fixed upon your symbol.
I suppose all things do pass
Wrist grazing glass,
White light at last gathers at feet caked in earth.
My movements submerged by thickness in words.
Laid my head mongst your curves
Grown too old for your tones of voice to scold
Attempt evils untold
I'll fold when you laugh again.
I'll smile when I'm dead.


My yesterdays don't matter now, they're gone.
Your careless expression left my wrists torn.
Yesterdays don't matter now, you're gone
Shattered glass of empty bottles cut my palms.

The entire album is about the narrator losing his faith in God because of how evil and cruel the world is, but what keeps him from losing it fully is the all the intimate and transcendent experiences he's had that makes him think that there must be a spiritual presence in the world. However, by the end of the album he does indeed lose his faith completely after depicting the loneliness of suffering

You lost me at this point. Two Headed Boy Part 2 is an uplifting ending, how could you see that as a loss of faith, or as a depiction of the loneliness of suffering?

I always saw him getting up as him walking away from god, also, the two headed boy in question is either a deformed baby who died in the womb or a deformed child who was tested on and killed by the Nazis, and the narrator describes the loneliness of his suffering and how God was never there for him, the narrator also describes the life he'd want the boy to have if he lived (having a loving family and girlfriend for example) but even when he describes a perfect, dreamlike world for him the feeling or abandonment creeps in (don't hate her when she gets up to leave) which confirms that he can no longer be optimistic, and then he leaves.

always sounded like coming to terms with something. like growing out of being a cynical teen.

"In the sun I feel as one."

I'd go with "acceptance".
