Tori Amos – Giant's Rolling Pin Lyrics 2 years ago
This commentary on the NSA's 2013 spying scandal and the Edward Snowden affair is hidden behind a jaunty jig. "As an American you have to ask all kinds of questions, and as a writer you have to, too," said Amos. You have to think, yeah, probably everybody does spy and not just the security arm of our governments. But, um, interesting choice (for Snowden) to run and hide with the Russians, who are really great to gays and women!."

"I'm not," she added, "being one of those crazy American patriots. But as a writer I try and pull back and be fair. And you kind of think: wow, these revelations needed to happen, but some of 'em didn't. When you're putting certain people's lives at risk, you have to ask yourself, "Would I have gone that far?"

"So, it's a commentary on all those things," Amos concluded. "It's about the tax man as well – there are no checks and balances with our tax authorities. I try not to pick a side when I write like that."
Amos folds her comments on NSA's spying scandal into a doughy story of the pies made by "Beth," "Marlene" and "Caroline," three women based out of a cafe near Amos's beach home in Florida. "I love these women! You look out of your glasses at them and think they've got some kind of alchemy going on in that kitchen," said Amos. "You just feel better when you've had their food!"

Green Day – King for a Day Lyrics 3 years ago
This is obviously about drag queens. The line "who put the drag in the drag queen" tells you that this is what the whole song is about.

Alanis Morissette – No Pressure Over Cappuccino Lyrics 3 years ago
This is my absolute favorite song by Alanis. The first time I heard this song I felt like she was singing it directly to me. It's no secret that this song is about her twin brother. The fact that he is gay is reflected in some of the lyrics. "You may never be or have a husband, you may never have or hold a child, you must learn to lose everything." The song title actually comes from when Alanis met with Wade for cappuccino. He admitted that because of her musical success he felt pressured to do something just as successful, but she assured him that there was no need. She loved him just the way he was.

Alanis Morissette – Hands Clean Lyrics 4 years ago
This song is obviously about her relationship with the older man she sung about in "You Oughta Know." It's a prequel of sorts to "You Oughta Know." The interesting thing about this song is she sings about what her lover told her in the past then uses the chorus to bring us into the present and displays how she kept her promise to keep their relationship a secret.

"Dont go telling anybody, overlook this supposed crime."
"I've honored your request for silence and you've washed your hands clean of this."
