How about a mega-store
Full of guns to start a war
We're selling toys for fatal games
We'll take the credit not the blame

When they shoot the neighbors
Shoot the daughters
Shoot the sisters
Shoot the mutha's

It's a billion dollar industry
All in the name of liberty

Guns 'are' us
Guns 'are' us, big boys buy big toys at
Guns 'are' us
Guns 'are' us

Living out the fantasy
Buy a dozen get, one free
Radar-guided, laser speed
Devastation guaranteed

Then they shoot the neighbors
Shoot the daughters
Shoot the brothers
Shoot the dog

It's a billion dollar industry
A constitutional guaranty

Guns 'are' us
Guns 'are' us, big boys buy big toys at
Guns 'are' us, get a free magazine with your M-16
Guns 'are' us, it's a one-day-sale

Gunned down in the neighborhood
In the name of brotherhood
Black or white ain't worth a dime
Cut 'em down in zero time

It's shoot to kill, they shoot to kill
It's a human thrill just to shoot to kill

When they shoot the neighbors
Shoot the daughters
Shoot the sisters
Shoot the mutha's

It's a billion dollar industry
All in the name of liberty

Guns 'are' us
Guns 'are' us, a final mega-blow-out-sale at
Guns 'are' us, get your armor-piercing son of a bitch at
Guns 'are' us, we accept your cash or credit card

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.

The Spy
Doors, The
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?

Word Alive, The
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.

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"
