"Messenger" as written by and Simos....
Stay still do be still
No wonder you are always lost
If a messenger you must be known
Then with messages you must return
To be seen by demanding hands
And touches of jealous men
Invisible and forgivable
To all their secret hands

Be it so be quick
Don't run just walk and walk and walk
Don't loose yourself to decorate
Somewhere on your wall
Cause somewhere in your mind
You know you are doing fine
Holding secret hair locks
You'll pluck before you hide

So how can I keep anything to myself
So how can I keep any of these to myself
So how can I keep anything to myself
Behind those clouds
I'm almost home

    Song MeaningI think this song talks about how every person is a messenger of sorts, a carrier of opinions and views which none are his own and as a result he loses his own identity.
    His attempts to stay true to himself are expressed by his will to slow down, be still and not lose himself to other people's expectations - those "jealous hands". The wall decorations are what society expects to find when one encounters it.
    This songs portraits the conflict of being an individual while at the same time being an integral part of a culture which seeks to (violently) imprint its truths onto its members.

    General CommentOh, I love this song. I think the song is about a girl growing up in an abused home. It sounds like her father's friends sexually abuse her and she hates it so she lives in her mind. The messages she carries could be from the father to the mother, or perhaps more business related, but either way, you can feel the girl's despair.

    General CommentI think its about war. A message from a wife to a husband...and husband to wife. Maybe keeping contact through the mail. He keeps locks of her hair...he's also jealous...maybe maddening because of war and what surrounds him. It seems she's telling him to hide..or be safe til he can return...and he's telling her he'll come home soon. Sad...really really sad.

    General CommentTo me it seems that this guy is singing about how difficult it is being a messenger. all those letters you've got to deliver, all those people expecting so much of you, so many jealous hands longing to find out what's in those letters...But you get nothing instead. Why can't you keep anything to yourself? Might sound banal but that's what i think.

    General CommentI tend to agree with Spirtos. Also, this song reminds me of "The Last Book in the Universe" by Rodman Philbrick, which features a shadowy group of messengers.

    General CommentIndeed everyone here is on the right track for the most part, it's pretty ominous actually. MKUltra, Satanic ritual abuse, Tax Funded - CIA/ILLUMINATI Trauma-Based Mind Control - "Monarch Programming"

    I have 2nd hand experience with this as my ex-gf is a vitcim of it.

    jealous hands...My ex's has a new "Boyfriend" who is actually what is known as a "handler". She was in a relationship with me for 5 1/2 years and there was never an issue of jealousy because we are both above that stupidity...then suddenly after our traumatic split, this "new" person using methods (i believe aided by drugs and post hypnotic suggestions) to trigger ALTS (altered states of mind, fragmented personality/multiple personality etc.). In trying to communicate to her one day she told me "he get's Jealous when I talk to you." I was like WHAT? I said "This isn't about jealousy this is about your VERY LIFE. Since when does jealousy rule your life and how you live it. Think for yourself." She was telling me over and over the reason she left me was mainly because I was too controlling- (this was and is a cover story for what really is happening - here). Anyway, you don't have to believe me, but it only added to the long list of various evidences of why I firmly believe she is a victim of Trauma based mind control. She is used a sex slave and a messenger.

    This is barely the tip of the iceberg I shared with you all here and and I want everyone to know how much these lyrics exemplify the very nature of this growing beast (Tax Funded Trauma Based Mind Control - MKUltra/Project Monarch), and share this with everyone.

    The song Misery is a Butterfly is also related to this, my ex-gf btw has a blue butterfly tattoo on her shoulder - an indicator mark to advertise to handlers (programmers).

    General CommentThis song still gives me the creeps somehow - infectious tune... but...creepy...'stay still - be still..' - for some reason keep thinking of that horrible movie 'Hostel' - ...stay still - be calm - under the worst most horrific....situation - maybe as I heard and saw the song & film at the same time....what a mournfull voice - makes u think of the worst situations.
