Burning down the riverbank
Deliver us deliverance
Deliberation of the people
Is irrelevance
The liberation of the mind and the body comes first
For a change in the politic of politics

Enough for one enough for two
Enough already son
I've come to tell you that
The future is undone

And you are free to change your mind
Any place or time

Kama Sutra kisses cool the temper
Of the temperamental institution
That could kill you if you're having fun Monkey Girl

I have a date tomorrow late
Deep in the jungle of the park
Gorilla girl and monkey boy
Are meeting for the first time
A fully charged electric love
A strange communication
In fancy dress we will impress
This bored electric nation

If there is hope then I hope
You're the animal I want
And I want you to know
That I'm ready for you

I'm getting on
I'm getting off
I'm getting up to no good

We came together in mid air
The tiny tracers led us there
Two like brainwaves in carpet caves
Who probed the atmosphere for days
We traded blows in violent prose
And made arrangements heaven knows
We'll be divine in bided time
A fake fur fuzz bomb baby

In the comfort zone where the restless roam
As they drag drunk feet to the four four beat
I will get my love from a cuddly toy
Just the same as when I was a young boy

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.

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”

I think much like another song “Anti-Matter” (that's also on the same album as this song), this one is also is inspired by a horrifying van crash the band experienced on Nov 3, 2022. This, much like the other track, sounds like it's an extension what they shared while huddled in the wreckage, as they helped frontman Garrett Russell stem the bleeding from his head wound while he was under the temporary effects of a concussion. The track speaks of where the mind goes at the most desperate & desolate of times, when it just about slips away to all but disconnect itself, and the aftermath.
