My angels surround me
Their burning wings fall from the sky
Where they once flew now seems so high
They'll never fly again

Everyone ignores them
Because these angels are for me
Open your eyes and then you'll see
You kill more everyday

My angels pass away
You don't care, you're only human
My angels leave today
Maybe someday you'll feel this way

They pay no attention
Cause they have angels of their own
Their angels have already flown
To new heights and beyond

Your angels fly away
Leave me here cause you're inhuman
You leave me here today
Maybe someday you'll feel this way

Are my angels really true?
Are they just another clue?
Are my angels genuine?
Do they really shine?
Cause I'm sick of the way that I'm perceived
Sick of the things that I've achieved
Sick of everything
Cause no one's listening

They all have their angels
They're so beautiful and real
And there's something there to feel
My angels are my dreams

They all have their angels
To the eye they all appeal
Is there anything to feel?
My demons are my dreams
My demons are my dreams
My demons are my dreams
My demons are my dreams
My demons are my dreams (You believe whatever they say)
My demons are my dreams (All I want is for you to stay)
My demons are my dreams (You will understand it one day)
My demons are my dreams (Maybe someday you'll feel this way)

So this has 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.

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.

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?
