Interpretations:For Science

From This Might Be A Wiki

Interpretation 1[edit | edit source]

It's not exactly an interpretation, since the song is fairly straightforward, but I think the mention of "sirens" might be kind of a pun, since the Sirens were women who lured men to their deaths, sort of like what the girl from Venus is doing to the male lead here. Along the same lines, Venus is the goddess of love and beauty. I'm probably reading WAY too much into this song, though. --VoVat 19:51, June 11, 2004

Actually, I agree with that. --Motor.on 20:21, 25 Apr 2006 (CDT)

Interpretation 2[edit | edit source]

I think it's more metaphorical. This guy is head over heels in love with her, he says Venus 'cos Venus, y'know, Roman love goddess. The part about flowers dying is him being afraid that a little gift like flowers won't cut it, but asking anyways. The "I'm so brave, etc." sounds like a wry marriage joke, especially the echo. The sci-fi motif suggests geekiness on the part of the narrator. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 67.183.22.228 (talkcontribs) 19:20, November 19, 2006

Interpretation 3[edit | edit source]

On the (She Was A) Hotel Detective (EP) this song is listed as For Science Featuring Lt. Anne Moore. I am not offering up any real new interpretation, but does anyone know if Lt. Anne Moore is a real name or a made up persona. If she is a made up persona it could be a reference to Anne Moore, the first person to pass through Ellis Island, or it could be just a coincidence.

Interpretation 4[edit | edit source]

All I know is that "Let's get these missiles ready to destroy the universe!" is the coolest thing I've ever heard. --Crummy 21:28, 27 June 2007 (UTC)

Interpretation 5[edit | edit source]

Could "Lt. Anne Moore" be a play on words? You know, saying that she's a lieutenant, and more? --VoVat 14:06, June 22, 2008
