Wanted by the minister
wanted by the thieves
Wanted by the old folks
wanted by the teens
wanted by the dealers
wanted by the fiends
and you're wanted by that gal in the cut cut jeans
wanted by the lawyers
wanted by the ballers
wanted by the governor who watches people suffer
wanted by the princes
wanted by the kings
and you're wanted by the driver of the limousines

Chorus:
Your love, your love is seven feet deep
it's a hundred seven degrees
I'm walkin cause my life ain't free
cause it's a hundred seven degrees
your pain is killing me
cause it's a hundred seven degrees
I'm walkin, cause my life ain't free

Wanted by the judge
wanted by the laws
Wanted by the gun
Wanted by the cars
Wanted by the mission
Wanted for the cause
Wanted by the people who have to pay he cost
Wanted by the lawyers
wanted by his daughters
wanted by that victim that's waiting for your offer
wanted by the prince
wanted by the kings
and you're wanted by the driver of that limousine

(Chorus)

    General CommentI think I can guess this one: HADES-DEATH. The lyrics and meaning are so simple yet the music is perfecto for it, so passionate and freeing. Listened to it today on my bike ride, no hands, alltheway!

    Song MeaningI like how people ignore some of Cope's best songs, and instead would rather comment on the commercially successful ones like Sideways and Son's Gonna Rise. This is just as good as either of them.

    107 Degrees is pretty much about a tempting woman, who's implied to be somewhat whorish. She's wanted by pretty much the entire community, and as it's suggested that all of them have have had her at some point, which is implied by the "your pain is killing me".

    General Commenti don't think this song is about a person that is wanted, but yet materialistic items and feelings, and it's not love for a person that's seven feet deep, but the love for those items and the way we feel when we get what we're after goes deeper than death. It's about money, pleasure, achievement, lust, the conquest and the act of going after those desired things "is killing me" It's like chasing the high.

    Song MeaningThis song is about Jesus.

    Everyone wants him, everyone longs for him even if they don't know about it. Everybody wants to be rich, recognized, loved, cared for although they all try to achieve that through means they think work the best.

    Jesus' love is seven feet deep - it goes to the grave, he died on our behalf.

    I'm walking, because my life ain't free - it's been bought by the Son of God on the cross and thus (regardless if I believe it or not) it is not free.

    General CommentI concur with worksfine. God is wanted by many. People who are righteous, and people who are not so righteous. Ministers, thieves. Judges, lawyer, who swear people in court by placing their hand on the Bible. He even spells it out with for the mission and for the cause.

    The chorus refers to 7 often. Christians believe 7 is God's perfect number. 777 is the antithesis of 666. God rested on the 7th day, etc. While there is a lot of fear mongering in religion, many Christians believe believe God's love runs much deeper than any human can love.

    Exactly as worksfine says "I'm walking because my life ain't free" is because Jesus paid the heaviest price for us (love is 7 feet deep). Also, not in the lyrics above, but the second chorus is slightly different from the first. In the first chorus, Cope says "your pain is killing me". I think it's because emotionally Jesus' pain is killing him. He hurts for him. In the second chorus Cope clearly says "your pain ain't killing me" because Jesus' pain gave us eternal life.

    I know this won't be a popular opinion because it's not cool to be a Christian (in fact worksfine's post was the only post to have a downvote), but it's not beyond Cope to speak about Christianity. He does it quite often. From "Salvation" on his first album, to "Left for Dead" on Every Waking Moment (which is a story that seems really close to the story of Moses). Rainwater LP refers to the Battle of Jericho in reference to a relationship he has. There's also other references to Jesus and the Bible in other songs of his as well. The point I'm trying to make is it's not entirely outside of Cope's content to refer to Jesus' sacrifice at the cross.

    In all honesty, I love Citizen Cope and really could care less if it's about a girl, cocaine, money, or Jesus. I would listen to this on repeat regardless. I do feel strongly about my interpretation, but understand the beauty of music is how many different ways to interpret pieces of art.
