A glance over your own shoulder
A vow that today will stand out Caged in a routine
Intent unknown
The element Of surprise
Impact undetermined but vast
Mark me...
Brandishing a cold loaded smile Simplicity,
subtlety, discordance fate and allegory
Everything has it's purpose and you will suffer for what you’ve done

    Morgan is most likely singing (screaming) about being abused, either mentally or physically, or both. She "vows" that she will stand up for herself and set an example for the world. Not knowing how to, she rests in the thought that no matter what happens, one day her abuser will get what they deserve.

    @The Oracle: Well, duh it's better than a lot of today's emo shit...it's not emo. But if you don't like the song, don't post here. Simple as that. I absolutely love this song.

    I think this song is just about rebelling, breaking away and doing your own thing.

    I'm glad Kittie ditched that teenie-bopper shit from "Spit" and started writting half-way listenable songs like this one and the rest on "Oracle". I see this as being about standing up for yourself and doing unto others what they've done to you...probably not though.

Mountain Song
Jane's Addiction
Jane's Addiction vocalist Perry Farrell gives Adam Reader some heartfelt insight into Jane’s Addiction's hard rock manifesto "Mountain Song", which was the second single from their revolutionary album Nothing's Shocking. Mountain song was first recorded in 1986 and appeared on the soundtrack to the film Dudes starring Jon Cryer. The version on Nothing's Shocking was re-recorded in 1988. "'Mountain Song' was actually about... I hate to say it but... drugs. Climbing this mountain and getting as high as you can, and then coming down that mountain," reveals Farrell. "What it feels to descend from the mountain top... not easy at all. The ascension is tough but exhilarating. Getting down is... it's a real bummer. Drugs is not for everybody obviously. For me, I wanted to experience the heights, and the lows come along with it." "There's a part - 'Cash in now honey, cash in Miss Smith.' Miss Smith is my Mother; our last name was Smith. Cashing in when she cashed in her life. So... she decided that, to her... at that time, she was desperate. Life wasn't worth it for her, that was her opinion. Some people think, never take your life, and some people find that their life isn't worth living. She was in love with my Dad, and my Dad was not faithful to her, and it broke her heart. She was very desperate and she did something that I know she regrets."

I Can't Go To Sleep
Wu-Tang Clan
This song is written as the perspective of the boys in the street, as a whole, and what path they are going to choose as they get older and grow into men. (This is why the music video takes place in an orphanage.) The seen, and unseen collective suffering is imbedded in the boys’ mind, consciously or subconsciously, and is haunting them. Which path will the boys choose? Issac Hayes is the voice of reason, maybe God, the angel on his shoulder, or the voice of his forefathers from beyond the grave who can see the big picture and are pleading with the boys not to continue the violence and pattern of killing their brothers, but to rise above. The most beautiful song and has so many levels. Racism towards African Americans in America would not exist if everyone sat down and listened to this song and understood the history behind the words. The power, fear, pleading in RZA and Ghostface voices are genuine and powerful. Issac Hayes’ strong voice makes the perfect strong father figure, who is possibly from beyond the grave.
