Tori Amos – Cactus Practice Lyrics 8 years ago
Meaning: this is where "god" really shows up. Just as it is in human history. The hallucinogens show up, and thus spirituality. here is true enlightenment. its perfect in context.

Ummmm, Peyote.
For any Toriphiles who have missed her enthusiastic endorsement of hallucinogens as spiritual tools. You either are not a true Ear With Feet or you are in denial, which is understandable and understood.

The rest of the song is explainable and easily interpreted in context of the album, and this: she is talking about tripping on mescaline.

I had no idea what she was talking about when i posted the lyrics.
She says: ....you must out-create....
and she says "...And can't be proud of what i have done..."

This is what i get from it. My own personal opinion, disclaimer :)

There is, of course, the fox-spirit and tori discussion going on. The entire album is, to me, about making peace with the male/sexist/masculine beings/men in our lives as female/feminists/feminine beings/women
(...instead of his blood by your thorn...). There is the story of Anabelle teaching Tori, but obviously (even as she wrote it she knew, and so did Natashya) there is an inter generational conversation going on. Job's Coffin (stars) are looking down, wondering why we "give ourselves away" and why there is a "grid of disempowerment." And those (same) stars can't be "proud" of what we older women have to do, just to exist. HAVE TO.
However, there is a younger (newer, more pure) way of looking at things(as the fox spirit/young woman). "sister it's time to bring it back online." DON'T MISS THE PUN. "The power grid is back online." No more grid of disempowerment.
The thing is, I wasn't much older than matashya when I started listening to Tori. Nothing has changed, really. it takes a generation...a rebirth....which is nothing compared to the age of the stars.

I apologize for any misspellings, like "matashya." I'm having trouble editing. Not sre whats up with site. will elaborate more clearly when I can edit.
