Deftones - Sextape

Floating on the water
Ever changing
Picture hours out from that
In tune with all our dreams

The ocean takes me
Into watch you shaking
Watch you weight your powers
Tempt with hours of pleasure

Take me one more time
Take me one more wave
Take me for one last ride
I'm out of my head

Tonight (x4)
The sound of the waves collide (x3)

Cruising through the city after hours
With me fusing all our powers
Here's to all our

Take me one more time
Take me one more wave
Take me for one last ride
I'm out of my head

"Sextape" is the eighth track from Deftones' sixth studio album Diamond Eyes. Frontman Chino Moreno discussed this lament about spiritual isolation with Artist Direct. Said Moreno: “I love that one; it jumps around a lot. I was going to fix it so every verse told one cohesive story, but I decided that I really like it the way it is. It’s really fragmented. Pieces of information are in different places—under the water and in the city. It’s broad, and it feels really good. It adapts to the overall vibe. It has a night time feel to it as well. We’ve been playing it in rehearsal and I realized how much I like it now. When I first wrote it, I thought, ‘You could tell this is one of my songs. It’s probably the most Team Sleep-esque song on the record.’ I didn’t want it to be too self-indulgent right off the bat or for people to think, ‘This is Chino just being Chino.’ Really it’s not; everybody contributes on that song fairly equally. I wrote the opening riff, but the song grew from everybody building on to that. It’s more of a Deftones song than people might believe it is. Playing the song in rehearsal, it sounds mighty. For the simple fact that it doesn’t have any crush guitar, screaming or anything aggressive on it, ‘Sextape’ sounds really big.” There are several references to a literal sex tape being made or replayed (recorded media of sexual or romantic exploits) by the album’s protagonist in "You’ve Seen the Butcher" and "Beauty School". In the song itself, it generally represents exposing oneself to another and exposing the union with their lover to many.
