Matryoshka. The russian word for those little wooden nesting dolls. Matryoshka. A song about going insane. How do these two connect? I had no clue, until, while stumbling through comments on a Vocaloid music video, I found one explaintion that worked.

My take on the meaning of this song:

The references to Freud and Matryoshkas leads me to believe this song is about the ever-famous theory of repression, which is applied to people who repress memories as a mental defence and subsequently develop many ‘layers’ (like a matryoshka doll). A Keloid is a type of scar, which could refer to the trauma from which the issues stem. The song is basically about the layers of insanity/going ******* crazy and using music as an outlet for that.

But, to really understand this comment, you’d have to read the lyrics, to find what it is refrencing to, and the orignal song is in japanese, so some lyrics may sound wierd in Enlgish.

WARNING: Its a bit of a long song…

One two, one two three four! This message that I think way too much about Others might see it, but how can you tell? No, I don’t think I’ve changed my ways A patched up crazy, matryoshka!
