Toxic [Britney Spears Cover] - Alex & Sierra




The Experience: Don't you know you're toxic... And in real life, toxic kills...



Music video: Alex & Sierra get away to a secluded rooftop... but as they dance their handprints slowly but surely stain each other's pure white clothing a deep dirty black. And their final kiss, instead of letting the lamplight shine through, eclipses it and leaves them in deep darkness.


The Meaning of Toxic: Alex & Sierra turn the original Britney Spears song upside down. For Britney Spears it was all about seduction. But the music video's lyrics are the key to understanding that for the married duo the dangers of a toxic relationship will slowly but surely destroy the people involved - just like dirt covers over their clothes and their faces - obscuring even who they are.

Ask yourself: Why do people stay in unhealthy relationships? Why do people paint them as glamorous?

LYRICS:

Baby, can't you see
I'm calling
A guy like you
Should wear a warning
It's dangerous
I'm fallin'

There's no escape
I can't wait
I need a hit
Baby, give me it
It's dangerous
I'm lovin' it

Too high
Can't come down
Losing my head
Spinning 'round and 'round
Do you feel me now

Taste of your lips, I'm on a ride
You're toxic I'm slipping under
With a taste of a poison paradise
I'm addicted to you
Don't you know that you're toxic
Don't you love what you do
Don't you know that you're toxic

It's getting late
To give you up
I took a sip
From my devil's cup
Slowly
It's taking over me

Too high
Can't come down
It's in the air
It's all around
Can you feel me now

Taste of your lips, I'm on a ride
You're toxic I'm slipping under
With a taste of a poison paradise
I'm addicted to you
Don't you know that you're toxic
Don't you love what you do
Don't you know that you're toxic

Intoxicate me now
With your lovin' now
I think I'm ready now
I think I'm ready now
