Sometimes I get the thought, how many people out there that receive a fair amount of media coverage are ABDLs? It is interesting to me knowing that there must be some out there considering the size and scope of media coverage and that some people you admire might share this little quirk with you. That leads me to think about music (as it is a big part of my life) and the thought that some of my favorite bands might have an ABDL member and no one could possibly know. At one particular time I was driving and, as usual, blasting music. In this case, Mastodon's The Hunter record. Now as I was thinking about this, the song Thickening came on and that reminded me of how they said the song was about being a baby. Now as I was listening to the song, I grew a bit more skeptical and thought these lyrics describe something similar to being a baby but not quite it, if you catch my drift. There are three main parts with vocals before repeating some of them so here are the lyrics to those parts:
With the lights down low
Wrapped up like a baby
And your hair hangs long
Surrounding my face
Straight out of nowhere
Buried deep inside my past
Straight out of nowhere
Hoping you'll be the last
Love your warm embrace
Hold me close don't let me go
Nipple pink and cold
Filled up with mother's milk
Now Mastodon are known for their obscure lyrics and the line "wrapped up like a baby" is redundant so that is a bit unlike them. It would be like if President Obama said this morning: "I feel like the president of the USA." It just wouldn't make any sense. The fact that the song takes a first person view makes this line repetitive since like the president, a baby would not compare itself to itself. To me it seems more likely that it is an older person's view.
The next line that gets me is "buried deep inside my past." What past could the baby be referring to? If anything an ABDL has more reason to look into the past.
Next, "hoping you'll be the last" seems to not fit in with the whole baby thing. For us it would seem more like the binge and purge cycle many of us go through.
The lines "your hair hangs low, surrounding my face" and "nipple pink and cold, filled up with mother's milk" on the other hand, could just as well be a description of a baby-mommy relationship (a rather vulgar one at that!).
"Love your warm embrace, hold me close don't let me go" could go along the lines of the whole mommy thing or, be a representation of how nappies make one feel.
I don't know, this is just some of the random things I think of sometimes. What do you guys think?
