the beauty you see, is not mine, and the words i say don't mean a thing, cuz i'm the only one with shamefull eyes, i'm the only one that can't reach out, i'm the only one, i'm the only one, i'm the only one that's so sinfully tainted

i know that this is not right, and i can see that you don't want to fall in, cuz i'm the only one with such an addiction, i'm the only one that needs to be needed, i'm the only one, i'm the only one, i'm the only one that's so sinfully tainted

my heart is breaking at the thought of you, and these tears are falling, cuz i don't know what to do, cuz i'm the only one with shameful eyes, i'm the only one that can't reach out, i'm the only one, i'm the onlly one, i'm the only one that's so sinfully tainted

these things i feel you will not share, and these scars i have you can't understand cuz i'm the only one with such an addiction, i'm the only one that needs to be needed, i'm the only one, i'm the only one, i'm the only one that's so sinfully tainted

yes i'm the only one that's so contradicted, i'm the only one that needs to feel pain i'm the only, i'm the only one, i'm the only one that's so sinfully tainted

your thoughts of me are misguided by lies, and your feelings for me get deflected by walls cuz i'm the only one that wants to be lonely, i'm the only one that needs to suffer, i'm the only one, i'm the only one, i'm the only one that's so sinfully tainted

my love for you can never be know, and the words that are true cannot be know, cuz i'm the only one....yes, i'm the only one.....i'm just the only one that's so sinfully tainted......sinfully tainted

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.

The Spy
Doors, The
Like a lot of the other comments are saying, I think this mainly about voyeurism. If the song was about his girlfriend, then why would he use the word spy. If you are a spy it means you shouldn't be caught, that is kind of the whole point, and if you are a voyeur, the whole point of the pleasure you get from it, is the fact that the other people don't know you are watching them. See a bit of a connection there?

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.

Cajun Girl
Little Feat
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”
