If you think that I don't notice
that you're not looking me in the eye
then you're blind and I don't have the time,
to sit here and wonder
just what's under your skin tonight.

And I know that there's a problem
but I don't understand
if what's in my chest is now in your hand,
I don't want to hear a word but I do.

Go to hell, who needs you,
I say that because I don't believe you.
Take my words the way I'm taking yours.
Its not fair, you know me,
but you don't even hear me,
Listen once, and listen close to me

Even a heart transplant
wouldn't show you how I feel would it baby.
Its tearing up my past now.
Yeah, it wouldn't show you how I feel would it now.

And those inside jokes and things we know
are the furthest thing from my mind,
but you let one slip and I forget and smile.
But I shouldn't because I hate you
and I hope this irritates you
as much as it does to me for even
thinking that I don't want you.
I'm not looking at you like I used to
when you'd kiss me and
when you'd want me, what did I do?
What did I say?

What did I do?
What did I say to make you forget?
What did I do?
What did I say to make you forget?

Time goes by and wonders why
and where and how and what you've learned.
and who is this you're sitting with tonight.
I'm over you, way over due now
but my heart lies to and between my past.
But if I pretend for a minute and put all that I have into it,
I swear that I can still feel
your something, but its probably nothing.

What did I do?
What did I say to make you forget?
What did I do?
What did I say to make you forget?

Even a heart transplant
wouldn't show you how I feel would it baby.
Its tearing up my past now.
Yeah, it wouldn't show you how I feel would it now.

    haha god i love this song, it's the first song i ever heard by punchline like a long time ago and then i think last summer maybe i went to their 37 everywhere concert without having heard ANY of the new songs and the very next day i bought the cd because i liked all the new stuff so much. punchline rocks, they seem like just all-around good guys and they were awesome in concert

    Well, this is probably a bit late, considering the comment was from a while ago...

    However, I don't think it's dislike.

    "Go to hell, who needs you, I say that because I don't believe you. Take my words the way I'm taking yours. "

    As in... Don't believe I me when I say, "Go to hell."

    Eh, sorry Ereven, but I think he honestly hates her.

    I'm thinking that she totally blew him off, and he's really mad.

    Although, there is the lines "I swear that I can still feel your something, but its probably nothing."

    That make me think that Punchline is still trying to get over this person, and can't admit that he still may have a thing for this person still, because he knows she'll treat him like shit.

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.

Step
Ministry
Both as a standalone and as part of the DSOTS album, you can take this lyric as read. As a matter of public record, Jourgensen's drug intake was legendary even in the 1980s. By the late 90s, in his own words, he was grappling with massive addiction issues and had lost almost everything: friends, spouse, money and had nearly died more than once. "Dark Side of the Spoon" is a both funny & sad title for an album made by a musical genius who was losing the plot; and this song is a message to his fans & friends saying he knows it. It's painful to listen to so I'm glad the "Keith Richards of industrial metals" wised up and cleaned up. Well done sir.

Fast Car
Tracy Chapman
"Fast car" is kind of a continuation of Bruce Springsteen's "Born to Run." It has all the clawing your way to a better life, but in this case the protagonist never makes it with her love; in fact she is dragged back down by him. There is still an amazing amount of hope and will in the lyrics; and the lyrics themselve rank and easy five. If only music was stronger it would be one of those great radio songs that you hear once a week 20 years after it was released. The imagery is almost tear-jerking ("City lights lay out before us", "Speeds so fast felt like I was drunk"), and the idea of starting from nothing and just driving and working and denigrating yourself for a chance at being just above poverty, then losing in the end is just painful and inspiring at the same time.

Holiday
Bee Gees
@[Diderik:33655] "Your a holiday!" Was a popular term used in the 50s/60s to compliment someone on their all around. For example, not only are they beautiful, but they are fun and kind too ... just an all around "holiday". I think your first comment is closer to being accurate. The singer/song writers state "Millions of eyes can see, yet why am i so blind!? When the someone else is me, its unkind its unkind". I believe hes referring to the girl toying with him and using him. He wants something deeper with her, thats why he allows himself to be as a puppet (even though for her fun and games) as long as it makes her happy. But he knows deep down that she doesnt really want to be serious with him and thats what makes him.
