Pandora's Aquarium Lyrics

Pandora, Pandora's aquarium?
She dives for shells with her nautical nuns.
And thoughts you thought you'd never tell.
Pandora, Pandora's aquarium?
She dives for shells with her nautical nuns.
And thoughts you thought you'd never tell.

I'm not asking you to believe in me.
Boy I think you're confused, I'm not Persephone.
Foam can be dangerous with tape across my mouth.
These things you do I never asked you how.


Line me up in single file with all your grievances.
Stare, but I can taste you're still alive below the waste.
Ripples come and ripples go and ripple back to me? back to me?


Pandora's, Pandora's aquarium?
She dives for shells with her nautical nuns.
And thoughts you thought you'd never tell.


Line me up in single file with all your grievances.
Stare, but I can taste you're still alive below the waste.
Ripples come and ripples go and ripple back to me? back to me?


I am not asking you to believe in me.
Boy I think you're confused I'm not Persephone.
She's in New York somewhere checking her accounts.
The Lord of the Flies was diagnosed as sound? bey, Pandora?

"You know when you've cried and cried, and you really can't cry anymore, so you're very quiet? I started hearing the water, and "Pandora" - the last song on the record - came to me. She was sort of warning me that there are so many feelings under the rocks that I needed to turn into. She told me, 'You need to dive into this one, Tori, because your healing is in there. Once you go, it's a whole new journey, but you've got to metaphorically leave this little dock and come with me to find out what's really in this ocean of feelings.' So i did. And that's where I met these songs."

i know in greek mythology that Persephone was abducted and possibly raped by hades. i think tori sees her as a kind of helpless victim figure, so by saying 'Boy I think you're confused, I'm not Persephone' shes telling someone that although she has been abused by certain men, that isnt who she is - shes refusing to remain the victim.

There are slightly different versions of what happened with persephone. Because she ate pommegranates in the underworld, she was supposed to stay there (it was a rule; once you've eaten there, you must stay). Though Zeus requested her back on Earth, She was to stay on Earth part of the year and the other part in the underworld. Now, while she was in the underworld, the land went barren but when she came back, the land flourished.. Anyway, I figured Tori might be touching upon this but, with her you never know.

Everytime I hear this song I feel like I'm underwater, in the deep black ocean with all these little creatures. Her voice and the piano and the lyrics, it all sounds like the water and you really feel like you're diving inside yourself to discover the hidden truth. I got chills everytime. The funny thing is I liked it after I've read the lyrics and now I love that song.
