I'm still remembering the day
I gave my life away
I'm still remembering the time
You said you'd be mine
Yesterday was cold and bare
Because you were not there
Yesterday was cold
My story has been told

I need your affection all the way
The world has changed or I've changed in a way
I try to remain
I'm trying not to go insane
I need your affection all the way

Get way
Get way
Get way
Get way
Get way

I'm still remembering my life
Before I became your wife
I'm still remembering the pain
And the mind games
Reverse psychology
Never tainted me
I didn't sell my soul
I didn't sell my soul

I need your affection all the way
The world has changed or I've changed in a way
I try to remain
I'm trying not to go insane
I need your affection all the way

They say the cream will always
Rise to the top
They say that good people
Are always first to drop
What of Kurt Cobain?
Will his presence still remain?
Remember J.F.K.
Ever saintly in a way?

Where are you now? (Where are you now?)
Where are you now? (Where are you now?)
Where are you now? (Where are you now?)
I said, where are you now?

I need your affection all the way (affection all the way)
I need your affection all the way (affection all the way)
I need your affection all the way (affection all the way)
I need your affection all the way (affection all the way)

All the way, all the way
All the way, all the way
All the way, all the way
All the way, all the way
All the way

    it's about a wife who felt like more of a person before she got married. not that she regrets it, but she nows her married life coul be better.

    This is their best song and one of my faves. The music is great and the lyrics - though not extraordinary - are so intense

    I've always thought of this as a love song, she's talking about the mind games and pain before you found the love of her life and how the world has changed and she needs him to be there for her. I've found with the Cranberries though that even their love songs are kind of melancholy.

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.

This song seemingly tackles the methods of deception those who manipulate others use to get victims to follow their demands, as well as diverting attention away from important issues. They'll also use it as a means to convince people to hate or kill others by pretending acts of terrorism were committed by the enemy when the acts themselves were done by the masters of control to promote discrimination and hate. It also reinforces the idea that these manipulative forces operate in various locations, infiltrating everyday life without detection, and propagate any and everywhere. In general, it highlights the danger of hidden agendas, manipulation, and distraction, serving as a critique of those who exploit chaos and confusion to control and gain power, depicting a cautionary tale against falling into their traps. It encourages us to question the narratives presented to us and remain vigilant against manipulation in various parts of society.

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”
