By any means necesserated
Blade cut me
Ride does a play on words and combines necessary with serrated to refer to being cut with a serrated blade.
This actually happens to be one of Ride’s most ambiguous lyrics to date.
This is an instantiation of the contradictory duality theme; taking two words, combining them and making a new third word out of their fusion(compromised existence). (derived from the earlier imagery of a single person(body) housing two permanently opposed personalities, forced to share the body).
“Necesserated” could be a jittery version of “necessitated” so that it rhymes with “grated.” This could imply he was compelled to cut himself by a lack of reasoning (“by any means”) or for the thrill of it, which is a bit Nietzschean.
The first line recalls the phrase “by any means necessary”, which was co-coined by Jean-Paul Satre, an existentialist thinker like Nietzsche, and Black Power leader Malcolm X, who was known for his provocative views on White America and avocation of gun ownership for defense.
