He rocks in the treetop all day long
Hoppin' and a-boppin' and a-singin' his song
All the little birds on Jaybird Street
Love to hear the robin go tweet, tweet, tweet.

Rockin' robin (tweet, tweet, tweet)
Rockin' robin (tweet, twidly-deet)
Blow, rockin' robin cause we really gonna rock tonight.

Ev'ry little swallows, ev'ry chickadee
Ev'ry little bird in the tall oak tree
The wise old owl, the big black crow
Flappin' their wings sayin', "Go, bird, go".

Rockin' robin (tweet, tweet, tweet)
Rockin' robin (tweet, twidly-deet)
Blow, rockin' robin cause we really gonna rock tonight

Ev'ry little raven at the birdman's stand
Talkin' 'bout the lozzapoppin' - it was grand
They started goin' steady and bless my soul
Out popped the buzzard and the oriole.

He rocks in the treetop all day long
Hoppin' and a-boppin' and a-singin' his song
All the little birds on Jaybird Street
Love to hear the robin go tweet, tweet, tweet.

Rockin' robin (tweet, tweet, tweet)
Rockin' robin (tweet, twidly-deet)
Blow, rockin' robin cause we really gonna rock tonight.

A pretty little raven at the birdman's stand
Talkin' 'bout the lozzapoppin' - it was grand
They started goin' steady and bless my soul
Out popped the buzzard and the oriole.

He rocks in the treetop all day long
Hoppin' and a-boppin' and a-singin' his song
All the little birds on Jaybird Street
Love to hear the robin go tweet, tweet, tweet.

Rockin' robin (tweet, tweet, tweet)
Rockin' robin (tweet, twidly-deet)
Blow, rockin' robin 'cause we really gonna rock tonight.

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.

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.

Both as a standalone and as part of the DSOTS album, you can take this lyric as read. As a matter of public record, Jourgensen's drug intake was legendary even in the 1980s. By the late 90s, in his own words, he was grappling with massive addiction issues and had lost almost everything: friends, spouse, money and had nearly died more than once. "Dark Side of the Spoon" is a both funny & sad title for an album made by a musical genius who was losing the plot; and this song is a message to his fans & friends saying he knows it. It's painful to listen to so I'm glad the "Keith Richards of industrial metals" wised up and cleaned up. Well done sir.

Overall about difficult moments of disappointment and vulnerability. Having hope and longing, while remaining optimistic for the future. Encourages the belief that with each new morning there is a chance for things to improve. The chorus offers a glimmer of optimism and a chance at a resolution and redemption in the future. Captures the rollercoaster of emotions of feeling lost while loving someone who is not there for you, feeling let down and abandoned while waiting for a lover. Lost with no direction, "Now I'm up in the air with the rain in my hair, Nowhere to go, I can go anywhere" The bridge shows signs of longing and a plea for companionship. The Lyrics express a desire for authentic connection and the importance of Loving someone just as they are. "Just in passing, I'm not asking. That you be anyone but you”
