Battle of the minds
cries Below cries Above
You must pick a side
Will you choose fear?
Will you choose love?

What does it look like,
this orbital ball from the fringes of The Milky Way?
What does it feel like,
this orbital ball on the fringes of The Milky Way?
Raining flavor
Icing flavor
flavor love

Whose God then is God?
They all want jurisdiction
In the Book of Earth
whose God spread fear?
Spread love?

And what does it look like,
this orbital ball from the fringes of The Milky Way?
What does it feel like,
this orbital ball from the fringes of The Milky Way?
Raining Flavor
Icing Flavor
flavor love
Turn up the frequency
What does it look like,
this orbital ball from the fringes of The Milky Way?
What does it feel like,
this orbital ball from the fringes of The Milky Way?
Raining flavor
Icing flavor
Spread that flavor
flavor flavor

    General CommentThis is the very first time a Tori Amos song has given me goosebumps since the release of Scarlet's Walk. Her voice is simply impecable here, production is perfection. I am so happy.

    General CommentIt seems like a commentary on the war between religions. Talking about choosing between a religion based on fear, and one on love. Then talking about the different religion's gods wanting jurisdiction on earth. I think the whole fear/love thing is meant to play with the listener's belief that religion spreads love.

    General CommentThis is a gorgeous song. I agree with stentorian. I've missed for a while being able to find Tori songs that can make me FEEL. What I've heard of the new album, she's going back to her roots, and that makes me very happy, indeed. Just beautiful.

    General CommentGorgeous song. Classic Tori thoughts.

    I always think about what this song is saying. There are so many battles going on here on earth everyday. It seems like such a big deal here on earth, especially battles of religious beliefs. But the real choice that matters most in this life, is the choice of fearing or loving things you don't understand.

    Because any being looking at this planet from the Milky Way can only see how beautiful it looks. There is just so much beauty, so many different flavors to taste everywhere you look. (Raining Flavor)

    General CommentYes, i agree with all of you.
    At last Tori returned to her older, unique , cloudy sounds. I just love her new album.
    Hi to all, by the way, I am new here. Christos from Greece, glad to have found this place.
