Add your thoughts 28 Comments. My Interpretation I think these lyrics are really interesting in that they're not as "occult" as other lyrics by The Knife. He's written some note or something for her to give to the brother because he's embarrassed "pass this on" and he doesn't want to seem creepy or too straight forward "Is he willing? In the video a transvestite sings it BUT according to the lyrics, it seems as if Karin is still singing it: Olof and the transvestite are dancing "and when you two danced, oh what a dance" hence they are the brother and sister while Karin is the girl watching and falling in love.
We see Karin at the very end staring dead on at Olof and the transvestite No Replies Log in to reply. There was an error. They're into weirdness, atmosphere and mood.
They come from Sweden. Therefore, it must be psychological and sexual to the bone. Whoever says in a saddened tone that they are in love with the girl's brother feels a bit guilty about what they "do". They have hesitations - maybe the brother is not into someone older, they are jealous of the sister's close relationship with her brother and would like to partake in some of that closeness. They look at him like a mother looks at her growing up boy, jealous on any younger girl with died hair who might come to take him away and make her lose her heart.
She wants to keep him for herself and for that purpose, she gets into a little role-playing, to forget the guilt: her son is no longer her son, it's just a close girl's brother, she doesn't even know his name, is he willing to role-play like she is? If she succeeds in seducing her boy, the sister would be responsible with passing this - her genes - on.
Sister and brother, they share their mother's health. Flag grandapes on November 10, I see the lyrics are fvgd up now. The song said: did he mention my age, luv. So this means whoever is enquiring about the brother is familiar with his sibling.
So it seems to me this is "girls talk". That's why she says she doesn't have the courage to ask the brother, so she's talking to the sister, like girls talk. And well, my impression that this is some sort of sick game, not really usual love.
That's why she says the bit about being worried about her age. Cause my guess is it's actually his mother. This is about incest and role-playing, and evolution. That's why the song is named "pass this on", because it's about genes actually. The mother is The Knife - Pass This On (Vinyl) speaking evolution seducing her offspring to make her twisted genes get passed on and survive.
She says "does he know what I do" which shows she is trying to pass for somebody else, to look like she's just another girl, when she isn't. She's role-playing. Flag locustsinflight on September 23, Song Meaning I've always loved this song.
