"The Taste" as written by and John Ondrasik....
So I seen her
In a land that was forgotten
She brought a candle to my mind
But it got no easier then
So I snuck out of her apartment
I went down to buy a premium
But all that settled was my mind, for a time
Till she showed me what a fire was

I will be a happy man if you're my sacred son
I could be a dividend if you're my only one

So I bought 12,000 acres
Suddenly it was a dozen
And for a moment I was blind but for the time
I caught a glimpse inside the universe there
I couldn't handle the dimensions
See two plus two can equal five here
So I sold off unto a lamb, but it was a scam
And he giggled like he'd won the lottery

I will be a happy man if you're my sacred son
I could be a dividend if you're my only one

And all the children started singing
There I fell into a coffin
Brought the water in my eyes
(Surprised) I wondered at the miracle there

When it all was finally over
I thought about our time here
Here where everything's divine
Well I find I still got the taste for you
I still got the taste for you
I still got the taste for you
I still got the taste for you

If you're my only one

    General CommentIt reminds me of the book/movie "Nineteen Eighty Four"
    I'm sure it's not about that but it's just what it reminds me of.
    Especially the "two plus two can equal five" part.

    General CommentThis song is quite hard to decipher. I think it is basically about this guy who is in a relationship, and he feels that his girl is using him. Yet, he still stays. Then the lines come 'There I fell into a coffin / Brought the water in my eyes'. They might mean that she finally crossed the line or something. But then, he sings 'I still got the taste for you'. Maybe that means he's just not strong enough to leave her.
