Song Meaning
Vermilion Pt 2 single

"The differences (between the two tracks) are subtle — 'Vermilion, Pt. 1' is about the enrapturing, the buildup, the anticipation and the neurosis," says Taylor. "'Part 2' is the aftermath, the pieces that have to be picked up later, and maybe the guilt of having lived through it." Both songs are said to be about lost or unrequited love from a possibly suicidal person's perspective.

Sequel

A sequel to this song, called Vermilion Pt. 2 also appears on the album Vol. 3: (The Subliminal Verses). It is at a slower tempo than Vermilion, and has never been performed live.
