Who put the little baby swastikkka on the wall
Who put the little baby swastikkka on the wall
It wasn't very high couldna been more than four years old
That's who put the little baby swastikkka on the wall

Who put the little baby swastikkka on the wall
Who put the little baby swastikkka on the wall
It wasn't very high couldna been more than four years old
That's who put the little baby swastikkka on the wall

Who put the little baby nigga-head on the wall
Who put the little baby nigga-head on the wall

The eyes were so big couldna been more than baby scrawls
That's who put the little baby nigga-head on the wall

You rope them in young
You rope them in young
So small, so innocent, so young
So delicately done, grown up in your poison

Who put the little baby swastikkka on the wall
Who put the little baby swastikkka on the wall
It wasn't very high couldna been more than four years old
That's who put the little baby swastikkka on the wall

Who put the little baby K's up on the wall
Who put the little baby K's up on the wall
They got em in a line I bet they wished they coulda sprayed up more
That's who put der litlle baby K's on the wall

You rope them in young
You rope them in young
So small, so innocent, so young
So delicately done, grown up in your poison

Who put the little baby swastikkka on the wall
Who put the little baby swastikkka on the wall
It wasn't very high couldna been more than four years old
That's who put the little baby swastikkka on the wall

You rope them in young
You rope them in young

Who kicked the little baby's head against the wall
Who kicked the little baby's head against the wall
Who kicked the little baby's head against the wall
We kicked the little baby's head against the wall

Who put the little baby swastikkka on the wall
Who put the little baby swastikkka on the wall
It wasn't very high couldna been more than four years old
That's who put the little baby swastikkka on the wall

You rope them in young
You rope them in young
You rope them in young
You rope them in young

    This is obviously about children who have been fed racist lies to convince them to follow the ways of organisations such as the KKK as its about a small child who has been scrawling swastikas on the wall and drawing pictures of black people.

    I think it also implies that there's no excuse for being a racist, with the line "We kicked the little baby's head against the wall". I don't think they're saying they'd kick a baby's head against a wall, but they wouldn't take "I've been brought up like this" as an excuse for racism.

    I'm sure they'd kick a granny's head against the wall, despite the fact that racism was much more 'acceptable' in the old days.

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.

Corpse I Fell In Love With
Gadjits, The
He reuses the verse melody from the previous album's "Dirty Little Religion", the topics of the verses are all over the place, and he packs too many words into one line (goes to show...) and too few in another (it's pretty hard to find), and rhymes "Henley Regatta" with "Persona non grata", but gets away with it all as only he could.

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.

Fast Car
Tracy Chapman
"Fast car" is kind of a continuation of Bruce Springsteen's "Born to Run." It has all the clawing your way to a better life, but in this case the protagonist never makes it with her love; in fact she is dragged back down by him. There is still an amazing amount of hope and will in the lyrics; and the lyrics themselve rank and easy five. If only music was stronger it would be one of those great radio songs that you hear once a week 20 years after it was released. The imagery is almost tear-jerking ("City lights lay out before us", "Speeds so fast felt like I was drunk"), and the idea of starting from nothing and just driving and working and denigrating yourself for a chance at being just above poverty, then losing in the end is just painful and inspiring at the same time.

The Night We Met
Lord Huron
This is a hauntingly beautiful song about introspection, specifically about looking back at a relationship that started bad and ended so poorly, that the narrator wants to go back to the very beginning and tell himself to not even travel down that road. I believe that the relationship started poorly because of the lines: "Take me back to the night we met:When the night was full of terrors: And your eyes were filled with tears: When you had not touched me yet" So, the first night was not a great start, but the narrator pursued the relationship and eventually both overcame the rough start to fall in love with each other: "I had all and then most of you" Like many relationships that turn sour, it was not a quick decline, but a gradual one where the narrator and their partner fall out of love and gradually grow apart "Some and now none of you" Losing someone who was once everything in your world, who you could confide in, tell your secrets to, share all the most intimate parts of your life, to being strangers with that person is probably one of the most painful experiences a person can go through. So Painful, the narrator wants to go back in time and tell himself to not even pursue the relationship. This was the perfect song for "13 Reasons Why"
