The Commitment

Haven't you felt the way that I feel today
Did you subside yourself to the fall
Did you help me out with all of my problems
While you were down my fucking hall

Always seeing how your god damn spirited
It's kinda nice that you feel our passion
It's kinda sweet that you felt my love again
And rekindled it to cash in
Our love again

(Chorus)
And you
And me
We both see the light
With you
With me
Always through the night
I see you
You see me
We love each other through night and day
I love you
You love me
We know that we always act that way

Talking about the way I act to you
What problems do we have to make us scream
About the way that I am
That the way it just seems

But I love you so fucking dearly
You bring my mind to a screeching halt
When the hard times come to my mind again
Your kind affection brings my ways back to default

(Chorus)
And you
And me
We both see the light
With you
With me
Always through the night
I see you
You see me
We love each other through night and day
I love you
You love me
We know that we always act that way

(Bridge)
Bring me back to my orignial state of mind
Where I feel no pain in my head
Just take me and fuck me to normal
Where i'm not no more dead

(Chorus)
And you
And me
We both see the light
With you
With me
Always through the night
I see you
You see me
We love each other through night and day
I love you
You love me
We know that we always act that way

(Outro)
Hold me tight, and never let me go
Sleep with me again, and make me feel like...

    That they have a lot of problems, yet he still loves his girl a lot. It's an awesome song, I wish that I had a guy that could and would write me songs, and sing them to me. It means a lot.

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

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.

Standing On The Edge Of Summer
Thursday
In regards to the meaning of this song: Before a live performance on the EP Five Stories Falling, Geoff states “It’s about the last time I went to visit my grandmother in Columbus, and I saw that she was dying and it was the last time I was going to see her. It is about realizing how young you are, but how quickly you can go.” That’s the thing about Geoff and his sublime poetry, you think it’s about one thing, but really it’s about something entirely different. But the lyrics are still universal and omnipresent, ubiquitous, even. So relatable. That’s one thing I love about this band. I also love their live performances, raw energy and Geoff’s beautiful, imperfectly perfect vocals. His voice soothes my aching soul.
