Is it efficient or does it kill
with the skill of a cluster bomb?
It'll take time but you know it will
if I happen to live that long
if you would listen to me
things wouldn't seem so gloomy
now you keep jamming up the gears
and I can't see through the smears
and everything's exactly as it appears
more I love you more I love you more
than I did before
but now it's either or or neither nor
and when I think about you I start turning green
and it shakes me up inside
cause it used to be the color of your eyes
everywhere I go I see your ghost the spirit of '91
you said you loved me more than toast
but less than a staplegun
is this the wrong direction?
that's such a stupid question now
when you make a sacrifice you're supposed to get a wish why does this only work in theory not practice?
more I love you more I love you more than I did before but now it's not allowed you're not around
I see you going out and everything goes black
and I start to fall apart
it reminds me of the color of your heart
I miss you more than mud
lost you more than blood
knead you more than dough
I love you more than toast
more I love you more I love you more than I did before but now we're in a war and what's it for?
I read your horoscope and everything is clear
and it feels a little weird
cause it used to be the color of your tears.

    I think raiting how much you like people based on everyday objects is clever.... uh hu.

    My MTX/Smiths/Vanessa Carlton cover band did a cover of this song, though I changed the words a bit so it applied to a relationship of mine that had recently ended:

    Everywhere I go, I see your ghost I guess that we're done for good You said you loved me more than most But less than Elijah Wood

    Sacrilege, I know.

    Everyone loves stapleguns more than Elijah Wood. This is a fundamental law of physics. Only a horrific genetic mutation could make it otherwise.

    I think we can all agree on this. Right?

Battle Royale
Word Alive, The
This song is def a twin to "Unfair" (a song she has been quoted as saying is about falling in love with someone who is already in a relationship) so it is presumably about the same person. Given the references to buying an apartment and not being able to see her love interest "after tonight," it's most likely that she's moving away and she'll "wait a day to break the bad news" (i.e. notifying him that she's leaving once she's already gone). And, of course, the fact that she sees in him a fellow "idealist" and "dreamer" (terms commonly given to people with the INFP personality on the Myers–Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI)) portends that she'll always be left wondering if they would've been perfect together.

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.

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”

@[Diderik:33655] "Your a holiday!" Was a popular term used in the 50s/60s to compliment someone on their all around. For example, not only are they beautiful, but they are fun and kind too ... just an all around "holiday". I think your first comment is closer to being accurate. The singer/song writers state "Millions of eyes can see, yet why am i so blind!? When the someone else is me, its unkind its unkind". I believe hes referring to the girl toying with him and using him. He wants something deeper with her, thats why he allows himself to be as a puppet (even though for her fun and games) as long as it makes her happy. But he knows deep down that she doesnt really want to be serious with him and thats what makes him.

Mountain Song
Jane's Addiction
Jane's Addiction vocalist Perry Farrell gives Adam Reader some heartfelt insight into Jane’s Addiction's hard rock manifesto "Mountain Song", which was the second single from their revolutionary album Nothing's Shocking. Mountain song was first recorded in 1986 and appeared on the soundtrack to the film Dudes starring Jon Cryer. The version on Nothing's Shocking was re-recorded in 1988. "'Mountain Song' was actually about... I hate to say it but... drugs. Climbing this mountain and getting as high as you can, and then coming down that mountain," reveals Farrell. "What it feels to descend from the mountain top... not easy at all. The ascension is tough but exhilarating. Getting down is... it's a real bummer. Drugs is not for everybody obviously. For me, I wanted to experience the heights, and the lows come along with it." "There's a part - 'Cash in now honey, cash in Miss Smith.' Miss Smith is my Mother; our last name was Smith. Cashing in when she cashed in her life. So... she decided that, to her... at that time, she was desperate. Life wasn't worth it for her, that was her opinion. Some people think, never take your life, and some people find that their life isn't worth living. She was in love with my Dad, and my Dad was not faithful to her, and it broke her heart. She was very desperate and she did something that I know she regrets."
