Transcribed by Reverend Straynge

the woods and the town
Covered in snow
All transformed to a fairytale
Like the fresh page of a book opened up
Ready
Waiting
For the story to begin
For you're all in a scene
Objects in black ink
Fringed in white
Breathing and living
And anticipating
A colour
All transformed to a fairytale
Unreal and inviting
Inviting you to step in
And follow the path neverending

you're now leaving
Imprints
And somehow expecting
Expecting someone

maybe the prince in disguise
Suffering a snow queen curse
But you're wrong of course
It's in reverse

out in the snow
Muffled
The last silent night
The last sacrifice
Red running over white
Red running over white
Red
Running over white
Red
Running over white
Running red
Over white
Running red
Over white

red over white
Red over white
Red
Over white

(Thorn version adds:)

running red over white
Running red over white
All (oh?) red over white
Running red
Over white
Running red
Over white
Red over white
Red over white
All (oh?) red
Over white

all (oh?) red
Over white

    I thought this was somebody going out for a walk in the snow and getting murdered. The line 'it's in reverse' could refer to the killer seeming heroic(prince in disguise), but really being an emontionless killer ( snow queen curse).

Jesse with the long hair....
Robert Earl Keen, Jr.
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.

Battle Royale
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.

Techno Ted
Audioslave
Techno Ted may be a person who caused Chris incredible emotional pain & trepidation as well as moments of peace & happiness but now is removed and awaiting his fate. Darling may be a different person who is also free of him and can live her life free of Ted's tyranny. "In between all the laughing, and daydreams ... lies: a desert of truth" Lies are like a desert or the omission of Truth: Where there were Lies then Truth was absent. The song, "Techno Ted", may be a cathartic celebration of the downfall of this person.

This is about bronies. They communicate by stomping.

Holiday
Bee Gees
@[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.
