What is this game we play with broken hearts and tears?
Been played by young and old for oh so many years,
Can you tell me honestly you've never been a pawn?
Someone steals your love away, you turn around...they're gone.

PRE-CHORUS
It is the game of temptation, it is the play of the heart,
Cry out in desperation, Iron Tears take you apart.

CHORUS
Love to you is lies to me - Iron Tears
Love is cruel and lies cut deep - Iron Tears

This time reverse the pain that brought upon your fears,
This time forget the part about broken hearts and tears,
Come on, take command, show no mercy, cruel and cold,
Iron eyes see right through and control the soul.

PRE-CHORUS
CHORUS
My love for you is lies you see - Iron Tears
Love is cruel and lies cut deep - Iron Tears

Iron Tears, the tears you cry, are tears enough for all.
Iron Tears, the tears I cry, are tears enough for all.

Now you know just how it feels from both sides of the heart,
Do you like the tearing, or to be torn apart?
What do you feel inside when you bleed a soul?
What do you want from love, mercy or control?

PRE-CHORUS
CHORUS
The game of love is made of lies, don't you see?
Iron Tears will forever be. Iron Tears...

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.

Classic love story true to his western tx roots. One of my favorites as a story, but I think there are alot of songs that are amazing not even listed on this site. I guess I should figure out how to add them, because I have about 8 REK cd's.

Word Alive, The
This song is def a twin to "Unfair" (a song she has been quoted as saying is about falling in love with someone who is already in a relationship) so it is presumably about the same person. Given the references to buying an apartment and not being able to see her love interest "after tonight," it's most likely that she's moving away and she'll "wait a day to break the bad news" (i.e. notifying him that she's leaving once she's already gone). And, of course, the fact that she sees in him a fellow "idealist" and "dreamer" (terms commonly given to people with the INFP personality on the Myers–Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI)) portends that she'll always be left wondering if they would've been perfect together.

Holiday

@[Diderik:33655] "Your a holiday!" Was a popular term used in the 50s/60s to compliment someone on their all around. For example, not only are they beautiful, but they are fun and kind too ... just an all around "holiday". I think your first comment is closer to being accurate. The singer/song writers state "Millions of eyes can see, yet why am i so blind!? When the someone else is me, its unkind its unkind". I believe hes referring to the girl toying with him and using him. He wants something deeper with her, thats why he allows himself to be as a puppet (even though for her fun and games) as long as it makes her happy. But he knows deep down that she doesnt really want to be serious with him and thats what makes him.
