My boy builds coffins

skeleton printed socks, Topman |  king and queen cards printed classic slip-on, Vans | black ribbon braid trilby hat , Topman | black bomber jacket, Topman | black hoodie, Primark | thrifted brown tribal print scarf | black skinny jeans, Forever21

This outfit was inspired by the character portrayed on Florence and the machine's song My boy builds coffins. When i first heard the song my mind quickly scanned through my wardrobe and made up this outfit. As some of my outfits portrays melancholic and dark themes, this one is one of my carefully thought piece. When i listen to this song it makes me think of life and death. Its saying that every body dies one day.
" my boy builds coffins and i think it's a shame
that when each one's been made, he can't see it again
he crafts every one with love and with care
then it's thrown in the ground and it just isn't fair
here its saying that every person is born unique and beautiful in their own way, and its shameful and sad that one day they'll just be buried in the dirt. Or for religious people perhaps its saying that god creates all of us differently making us unique and then the same thing...Death.
The meaning i get out of this song is that many people don't appreciate art. This boy has a beautiful talent, but since it's such a unique and unusual talent, people only see it as a bad thing because it's a coffin.
