This won't be what you want to hear
Coming from me
I'm tired of hiding my hate inside from you
I can't take it all right now
I think you should

[Repeat: x2]
Just stay away, get away, run away
So far away that you're never gonna see me
You don't want to face the reality
That you'll never be nothing more
Nothing less to me

[Chorus]
Back up, back off
You're always pushing me
Back up, back off
You're right on top of me
Get out, get out, get out
What do you want from me?
The hate inside of me
You bring it out of me

So beautiful
You're confusing me
It's hard to let go
How did I make it this far away from you?
I've heard all the lies that won't come true
I wish you would

Just stay away, get away, run away
So far away that you're never gonna see me
You don't want to face the reality
That you'll never be nothing more
Nothing less to me

[Chorus]

Go on get out, go on get out
Why are you always pushing me?
What you should do
What you should do
Is leave

Just stay away, get away, run away
So far away that you're never gonna see me
You don't want to face the reality
That you'll never be nothing more
Nothing less to me

[Chorus]

Do you feel like everyone else feels?

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.

Corpse I Fell In Love With

He reuses the verse melody from the previous album's "Dirty Little Religion", the topics of the verses are all over the place, and he packs too many words into one line (goes to show...) and too few in another (it's pretty hard to find), and rhymes "Henley Regatta" with "Persona non grata", but gets away with it all as only he could.

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"
