when everythings been said
and all your lies been fed to me
there's no wonder why... im so frustrated

i know things might seem complicated but somehow
id like to keep you by my side
and though my words come off as jaded to someone
who doesn't understand my life
your inconsistency
keeps on suprising me
no heart felt sentiment
you cared but to extents
you want variety, instead of quality
call it ingenuity
but one day you will!
see it, by then it might be to late to hold on
believe this, if my back is turned that means so long
im thinking, of better ways that i can tell you how i feel
like its not you, its just me

if i could be anything
i wish i could be your tears
so i could be born in your eyes
and live life down your cheek
id die on your lips
it'd be like having one last kiss
thats what i call eternal bliss
i hope one day you will!
see it, by then it might be to late to hold on
believe this, if my back is turned that means so long
im thinking, of better ways that i can tell you how i feel
like its not you, its just me

you had the chance... to make the best of what we could have been
as this romance, comes to its end id like to say one thing
i think were better off (good bye)
i think were better off (don't cry)
i think were better off as friends

i think were better off (good bye)
i think were better off (don't cry)
i think were better off as friends

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.

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.

I think much like another song “Anti-Matter” (that's also on the same album as this song), this one is also is inspired by a horrifying van crash the band experienced on Nov 3, 2022. This, much like the other track, sounds like it's an extension what they shared while huddled in the wreckage, as they helped frontman Garrett Russell stem the bleeding from his head wound while he was under the temporary effects of a concussion. The track speaks of where the mind goes at the most desperate & desolate of times, when it just about slips away to all but disconnect itself, and the aftermath.
