@[hanan27988:37231] Upvoting this just because I want people to have a fantastic song that really does relate to the trans experience, now that you mention all of that! - but as far as I know, AFP is a cis female. :)

(I just remembered that AFP birthed a child so lol yeah she's definitely a cis female)

Rasputina – Calico Indians Lyrics 1 month ago
From Rasputina's website back in 2010:


Notes from Sister Kinderhook

Calico Indians

For these lyrics, I am indebted to Clara Barrus. At the time I was researching the song, I thought I was studying the writings of an unknown historical-society-lady; that her words were from some obscure mimeographed pamphlet. But in actuality, she's a fascinating woman. She wrote this book: Nursing the Insane.

Clara Barrus was some kind of partner (hm) to John Burroughs, who was a naturalist akin to Thoreau, and a buddy of Walt Whitman. Clara's spirited account of the Anti-Rent wars is actually John Burroughs experience and memories.

In the song, I give much space to description of the rebels' costume. It was just so drag and weird — I love it.

Read up yourself on this obscure rebellion. It was a real serf situation. Ay, by Rasputina Field-Trip™, I've visited the manorial home of the biggest Patroon.

Rasputina – Crazy Swan Lyrics 1 month ago
The lyrics I found a little more complete - source: http://www.alwaysontherun.net/rasputina.htm#p3


He was a merciless charger
He was a white horse man
He lead a team and he would lean into her open hand

And on the picking of the wagons, when he'd jump down
Oh how it drove her take his capture like a spring, she was well-endowed
And he would whisper that no one else could nail him like he did
and it was sick, but they were so rapturous

She was a crazy swan

He was chunky, oh he was lean
He was the most magnificent thing she had ever seen
In a gentle way, he rested his hoof on her neck
She was crazy, drove him crazy
She was playing with a half-deck

It was difficult for this couple to hold hands
????? in marsh lands
Yeah, she was a crazy swan

The trail of feathers lead
Into a soft lap and his soft hand (???)
They might have known what she obsessively says at home (???)
She was a crazy swan

Oh, it don't matter what the people say (what they say, what they say)
Their attention couldn't just get in the way ???
You could mix up these two if heaven came down
You should hear them in the backyard, make a joyful sound
You should not judge them, say it's right or it's wrong

They are ?????

Yeah, she was a crazy swan

Rasputina – Doomsday Averted Lyrics 1 month ago
I agree that this is probably just Melora having fun and being creative and creepy, but personally, I interpret this in a very southern gothic (which obv fits very well with the overall vibe from the album) - that by believing that Jesus saves, you can avoid doomsday, hence: doomsday averted.

A Perfect Circle – The Hollow Lyrics 4 years ago
It’s about that hollow part of our souls - our depressions - and filling that emptiness within ourselves. It’s the human condition; we’re always trying to find a way to fill the void, even if it’s only temporarily so, and hope that someday we’ll find a way to make that comfort stay permanently. In the song, our narrator finds great comfort and solace through making love - with “no conscience”, even if it “runs him like a blade”, because she only has “one motive” and that’s to “cater to the hollow”; her own emptiness. Even if she doesn’t love him, it feels beautiful and euphoric in the moment, and that’s all that matters to her.
