they feel they've raised her
the new queen of evolution
her fate won't see to that
cause we're gonna know her later
grab that girl
get her home
let's put her on restriction
last time we let her go
she missed 2 days of school
let's get her back
get her back

this feels like a real life fantasy
it feels like you
this feels like a real life fantasy
it feels like you

relaxed in vermin life
takes place of feeling bad
so you tried it
recalling memories
of charm school pantomime turned so bad
dainty socialite
she changed her point of view
and now she's bad
can't hide it
i think she really liked
all the things that she learned

this feels like a real life fantasy
it feels like you
this feels like a true fantasmasy
it feels like you
this feels like a real life fantasy
it feels like you
this feels like a real life fantasy
it feels like you

be a good girl like your supposed to
dominate your fears
be a good girl like your supposed to
dominate your fears
be a good girl like your supposed to
dominate your fears
good girls like you should be
i think you better know

this feels like a real life fantasy
it feels like you
this feels like a true fantasmasy
it feels like you
this feels like a real life fantasy
it feels like you
this feels like a true fantasmasy
it feels like you
this feels like a real life fantasy
it feels like you
this feels like a real life fantasy
it feels like you.

    I think it's about natural selection, with the example of a girl who switched cliques or social classes, went from a good girl to a bad girl.

    the part about " Dainty socialite she changed her point of view now she's bad, can't hide it/ I think she really liked all the things that she learned" I think is referring to her going from her nice clean rich circle of friends to her street-living other friends.

    Just a thought...

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.

Like a lot of the other comments are saying, I think this mainly about voyeurism. If the song was about his girlfriend, then why would he use the word spy. If you are a spy it means you shouldn't be caught, that is kind of the whole point, and if you are a voyeur, the whole point of the pleasure you get from it, is the fact that the other people don't know you are watching them. See a bit of a connection there?

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
Audioslave
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.
