Look at you now
Truth begged to be told
I walk around in circles
To revisit where I've always been
You spoke of where your heart was
I thought I know you well
Ties that bind you have been severed
Look at you now
Eyes wide open
Truth begged to be told
Look at you now
Eyes wide open
For you bought and sold
Look at you now
Eyes wide open
Truth begged to be told
Look at you now
Eyes wide open
For you bought and sold
I want to make you feel this
Trusting arms lets me fall once again
I stood close to an enemy and closer to a friend
Ties that bind you have been severed
Look at you now

    I agree with JofaGuht on Morgan screaming "you selfish bitch!" after the first line. I also think she screams "Look at you now! You're alone. You're falling and its by yourself!" at the end (this is what I've heard it as). I never really got into this song but lately its become in amongst my top favourite songs. Very good melody.

    Haha I asked Morgan on the Kittie board what the added lyrics were and there are as follows:

    At the start - "look at you now, you selfish bitch"

    At the end" "look at you now, you're alone! admit you brought this on yourself"

    it seems to me that this song, as well as many of the other songs on Oracle, are about Fallon leaving.

    anyone agree?

    This song is pretty obvious, it's about betrayel(the theme of the entire of oracle). Also, at the beginning of the song, what she says after "look at you now" I think is "you selfish bitch". I'm not sure, though.

    This is my favorite song by Kittie as of now.

No Surprises
Radiohead
Same ideas expressed in Fitter, Happier are expressed in this song. We're told to strive for some sort of ideal life, which includes getting a good job, being kind to everyone, finding a partner, getting married, having a couple kids, living in a quiet neighborhood in a nice big house, etc. But in Fitter, Happier the narrator(?) realizes that it's incredibly robotic to live this life. People are being used by those in power "like a pig in a cage on antibiotics"--being pacified with things like new phones and cool gadgets and houses while being sucked dry. On No Surprises, the narrator is realizing how this life is killing him slowly. In the video, his helmet is slowly filling up with water, drowning him. But he's so complacent with it. This is a good summary of the song. This boring, "perfect" life foisted upon us by some higher powers (not spiritual, but political, economic, etc. politicians and businessmen, perhaps) is not the way to live. But there is seemingly no way out but death. He'd rather die peacefully right now than live in this cage. While our lives are often shielded, we're in our own protective bubbles, or protective helmets like the one Thom wears, if we look a little harder we can see all the corruption, lies, manipulation, etc. that is going on in the world, often run by huge yet nearly invisible organizations, corporations, and 'leaders'. It's a very hopeless song because it reflects real life.

Plastic Bag
Ed Sheeran
“Plastic Bag” is a song about searching for an escape from personal problems and hoping to find it in the lively atmosphere of a Saturday night party. Ed Sheeran tells the story of his friend and the myriad of troubles he is going through. Unable to find any solutions, this friend seeks a last resort in a party and the vanity that comes with it. “I overthink and have trouble sleepin’ / All purpose gone and don’t have a reason / And there’s no doctor to stop this bleedin’ / So I left home and jumped in the deep end,” Ed Sheeran sings in verse one. He continues by adding that this person is feeling the weight of having disappointed his father and doesn’t have any friends to rely on in this difficult moment. In the second verse, Ed sings about the role of grief in his friend’s plight and his dwindling faith in prayer. “Saturday night is givin’ me a reason to rely on the strobe lights / The lifeline of a promise in a shot glass, and I’ll take that / If you’re givin’ out love from a plastic bag,” Ed sings on the chorus, as his friend turns to new vices in hopes of feeling better.

Midnight
Ed Sheeran
“Midnight” is a song about finding a love that is so true that it provides a calming feeling through every storm. Ed Sheeran reflects on his good fortunes in landing someone with such peace and support and speaks of not fearing the dark days because he knows they’ll all end in the safety nets of her arms. “Well, good morning there / What a way to start the day / With everything laid bare,” Ed Sheeran sings in the first verse, enthusiastic to be waking up beside his woman. He apologizes for missing her calls in the second verse and promises to return them because for him, speaking to her is the most important thing. “Well, I get lost inside my head / In this chaos, you’re my calm / And I will find my feet again / ‘Cause еven the worst days of my life will always еnd / At midnight in your arms,” sings Ed Sheeran in the chorus, revelling in his good luck.
