08. “Heart of Gold” is not lyrics or words but just this looping whining buzzing creation that circles and circles but gets nowhere but exactly where it began. Tori’s words are unintelligible until she is in the eye of this sonic storm with the thomping bass and edgy guitar circling her and tearing the roots of the drums up as they spin higher and higher. This is “She’s Your Cocaine” at zero-g… all of its elements coming loose from their moorings and floating upwards at once; nothing secure. The gender perspective in this one is lost and all that remains is Tori weaving in and out, almost puckishly mocking the search for a heart of gold … something that men quest for while women keep the fires tended. My question is this: are they searching for a golden heart in someone else’s chest, or one to put in their own? Either way, i don’t think she’s being very encouraging about it.
