[Puba]
Yeah.. aight..
2000 representatives comin to ya
Yeah, here to talk about a situation you know
that makes the world go round, check it
It's on that love and hate tape, yaknahmsayin?
Be damned if you do, damned if you don't
But I'ma rap on it a taste, yaknahmsayin?
I'ma let honey take it away, check it

[Valdes]
It's a thin line..
between love and hate
It's a thin line (yeah) it's a thin line (uhh)
If you feel the vibe..
Yeah.. no doubt
It's time to set em straight

[Puba] [Valdes]
No doubt, check it
Well it's four o'clock, in the mornin
Just gettin in, baby love's askin
Baby where you been?
Tryin to get mine
But I've been sittin waitin all this time
I got to grab this cream, while I got the chance
Romance, without finance -- you know the rest, baby
It's just a nuisance
I'm sayin, act like you know
Nuttin can't grow if the dough don't flow
But I'm just tryin to get a-wit you
Baby I ain't tryin to bullshit you
Why we gotta beef on the same old shit?
Because your friends you'd rather be with
But when I'm with my friends, I don't go through that
So you can pack your bags
They already packed
Well you ain't really my skin
And your friends ain't really your friends

Chorus: repeat 2X

They smile, in your face
All the time, they wanna take your place
The back-stabbers
Pocket-grabbers

[Puba]
I told my man that I gave my girl the outs
Crib to the head, king size bed
That love shit is dead, so let's call some chickenheads
Tell em do the spread while we bein handfed
We had it goin for the first two weeks
I bumped into my ex, and she asked, could we speak?
I told her made it quick, and this is what she kicked
Dig it

[Valdes]
Hey baby how you doin?
Fine
I heard that you and your friends be havin good times
No doubt, he come through in the clutch
That nigga ain't really your friend
What?
I wish you wouldn't trust him so much
You got a problem?
I think you really trust him too much
Cause he's the best friend, I got
No he's not!
The last time you went out of town
Yeah?
Guess who came creepin around?
Yeah..
Whatchu sayin?
He started sayin that you're no good for me
But all that drama wasn't tryin to see
Talkin bout all the other girls you got
Oh the nigga went out like that? Oh shit!
Steppin to me, tryin to blow up the spot
Tell me boy, is that your friend
Nooooo, nooooooo, noooooo
Damn
It's a thin line, between love and hate
Love and hate, love and hate
If you feel the vibe boy, it's time to set him straight
Oh I'ma set that nigga straight
It's a thin line boy, between love and hate
If you take your time, it'll be worth your wait

[Puba]
Boy I tell you these days
You don't even know who to trust, yaknahmsayin?
That's how love do, that's how hate do, knahmsayin?
It's all connected
It's all injected, knahmsayin?

Ave Grave
Thee More Shallows
So this has been.my favorite song of OTEP's since it came out in 2004, and I always thought it was a song about a child's narrative of suffering in an abusive Christian home. But now that I am revisiting the lyrics, I am seeing something totally new. This song could be gospel of John but from the perspective of Jesus. Jesus was NOT having a good time up to and during the crucifixion. Everyone in the known world at the time looked to him with fear, admiration or disgust and he was constantly being asked questions. He spoke in "verses, prophesies and curses". He had made an enemy of the state, and believed the world was increasingly wicked and fallen from grace, or that he was in the "mouth of madness". The spine of atlas is the structure that allows the titan to hold the world up. Jesus challenged the state and in doing so became a celebrated resistance figure. It also made him public enemy #1. All of this happened simply because he was doing his thing, not because of any agenda he had or strategy. And then he gets scourged (storm of thorns) There are some plot holes here but I think it's an interesting interpretation.

Love in a Vacuum
'Til Tuesday
Well, in my opinion this song is about being a young & maybe a little naive &/or introverted girl and finding yourself loving a man who is at first very charming, carefree & outgoing, and seems at first to be without limits, as in "There was a time you opened up every doorway you didn't mind if everything wasn't your way" then that man starts to gradually become more introverted & shows their more possessive/obsessive side to you as the relationship progresses, even while they keep up the appearance of being carefree & outgoing to everyone else, "Don't pull away that goes against what you told me I look in your eyes I realize what you've sold me is love in a vacuum" so you confront them about the way they're acting and of course they deny it, "I think you've changed but you insist that that's not true" quite possibly they are an addict of some sort, my guess would be cocaine, &/or showing very obsessive behavior towards you (early on in the video for this song we see the man hanging a picture up, it is a very large portrait of Aimee & it is prominently displayed in his/their apartment for the duration of the song), thus their "love in a vacuum", "You look so strange, so distant that you're hardly you Now I can see how you have been acting different You say it's me but I know that it isn't it's love in a vacuum" but still you are in love with them and don't want to leave them and you know that they are truly in love with you and they don't want you to leave them either, maybe they are convinced you can save them from themself, maybe they are so broken that the possibility of an overdose &/or suicide attempt is very real and you want to get through to them that their behavior not only dangerous but it is also just pissing you off and if they don't wise up they run the risk of loosing you, as in the lines "You will be lonely if you leave me alone", so you want to save them but can't get through to them due to the addiction &/or emotional problems they have, "Love in a vacuum and that's not enough love in a vacuum You will be lonely you'll be the only one who feels this way You will be lonely if you leave me alone You will be lonely you'll be the only one who feels this way it's just not enough" you want them to understand that the love they are giving you is not enough when it is filtered through the vacuum of their drug addiction &/or emotional impairment, "You will be lonely you'll be the only one who feels this way it's just not enough and just wait you will be lonely Love in a vacuum Love in a vacuum and that's not enough Love in a vacuum". 'Love In A Vacuum' for me is a hauntingly truthful acute argument on the loneliness of obsession and almost inevitable loss of love that follows people who are broken in some way or another; the obsessives, the coke heads, the drunks, addicts or the just-plain-old emotionally broken; a razor sharp, lyrically driven, deceptively poppy, yet ultimately-depressing-in-the-best-way song. Quintessential Aimee Mann.

Mountain Song
Jane's Addiction
Jane's Addiction vocalist Perry Farrell gives Adam Reader some heartfelt insight into Jane’s Addiction's hard rock manifesto "Mountain Song", which was the second single from their revolutionary album Nothing's Shocking. Mountain song was first recorded in 1986 and appeared on the soundtrack to the film Dudes starring Jon Cryer. The version on Nothing's Shocking was re-recorded in 1988. "'Mountain Song' was actually about... I hate to say it but... drugs. Climbing this mountain and getting as high as you can, and then coming down that mountain," reveals Farrell. "What it feels to descend from the mountain top... not easy at all. The ascension is tough but exhilarating. Getting down is... it's a real bummer. Drugs is not for everybody obviously. For me, I wanted to experience the heights, and the lows come along with it." "There's a part - 'Cash in now honey, cash in Miss Smith.' Miss Smith is my Mother; our last name was Smith. Cashing in when she cashed in her life. So... she decided that, to her... at that time, she was desperate. Life wasn't worth it for her, that was her opinion. Some people think, never take your life, and some people find that their life isn't worth living. She was in love with my Dad, and my Dad was not faithful to her, and it broke her heart. She was very desperate and she did something that I know she regrets."
