And i couldn't love you
any more
than i do right now

and The Furies that i feared were
Eumenides to lead me here
here i linger

and the cadences we hear
may grow different in coming years
still I'll tell you

that I couldn't love you
any more
than I do right now

and if you should ever leave
then I would love you for what you need
I could still tell you

that I couldn't love you
any more
than I do right now

    i love the sheer simplicity of this song. the music is so minimalistic letting the her emotional voice pour through...transmitting the lyrics on a soul-bearing level. "and The Furies that i feared were Eumenides to lead me here " -- my favorite lines...you might need a rudimentary knowledge in greek mythology to realize their depth.

    Music of Silence, What do the references refer to and what does it convey?

    Well, in Greek Mythology, the names "Furies" and "Eumenidies" refer to the same three goddesses -- under the name "Furies" they were avenging goddesses carrying out the punishment of the gods upon mortals. Under the name "Eumenidies" (which means 'kindly ones' - whether ironically or not) they were fertility goddesses. What I felt this conveyed was circumstances that were seen as devestating to the relationship were actually means to a greater end than could ever be imagined. Don't things often turn out that way? What you thought would obliterate your best laid plans actually are the exact events that make you the happiest later on -- that you couldn't possibly have planned if you tried.

    I see this song as emerging from a trial of great proportions only to realize love that "beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, and endureth all things" -- not a complicated assessment, I know, but I don't believe the lyrics mean to be complicated :o)

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.

Warren wanted a Beach Boys thing for this one, and Carl Wilson and Billy Hinsche came in, with Carl arranging the vocal parts. The other harmony vocalists (credited as the "Gentlemen Boys") were Jackson Browne, J.D. Souther, Zevon's longtime backers Waddy Wachtel and Jorge Calderon, and Linda Rondstadt/Stone Poneys guitarist Kenny Edwards.

Light Up The Sky
Van Halen
The song lyrics were written by the band Van Halen, as they were asked to write a song for the 1979 movie "Over the Edge" starring Matt Dillon. The movie (and the lyrics, although more obliquely) are about bored, rebellious youth with nothing better to do than get into trouble. If you see the movie, these lyrics will make more sense. It's a great movie if you grew up in the 70s/80s you'll definitely remember some of these characters from your own life. Fun fact, after writing the song, Van Halen decided not to let the movie use it.

The Night We Met
Lord Huron
This is a hauntingly beautiful song about introspection, specifically about looking back at a relationship that started bad and ended so poorly, that the narrator wants to go back to the very beginning and tell himself to not even travel down that road. I believe that the relationship started poorly because of the lines: "Take me back to the night we met:When the night was full of terrors: And your eyes were filled with tears: When you had not touched me yet" So, the first night was not a great start, but the narrator pursued the relationship and eventually both overcame the rough start to fall in love with each other: "I had all and then most of you" Like many relationships that turn sour, it was not a quick decline, but a gradual one where the narrator and their partner fall out of love and gradually grow apart "Some and now none of you" Losing someone who was once everything in your world, who you could confide in, tell your secrets to, share all the most intimate parts of your life, to being strangers with that person is probably one of the most painful experiences a person can go through. So Painful, the narrator wants to go back in time and tell himself to not even pursue the relationship. This was the perfect song for "13 Reasons Why"
