Just to see my holly home
Evil jack he walks alone
Swings a club and stinks something awful
We'll give him a painful jawful
Sara walks a slinky strut
Very gorgeous anxious slut
Has a love scar on her wrist
We'll give her our painful fist

Just to see my holly home
Just to see my holly home
We will live just us alone
Safely in our holly home

In come babies one two three
Like to bounce them on our knee
Want to stay and grow up with us
Baby stew will surely fill us

Just to see my holly home
Just to see my holly home
We will live just us alone
Safely in our holly home

Pound them down and pound them out
Older ladies scream and shout
Hide their bodies in the reeds
Shallow bed of soil and leaves
Out will grow ideas and laughter
Up will rise our earthly daughter
Water floods and all upon it
Up upon our bloody planet !

Now we've ended all who'd harm us
No one left here to alarm us
And we live just us alone
Safely in our holly home

Just to see my holly home
Just to see my holly home
We will live just us alone
Safely in our holly home

Just to see my holly home
Just to see my holly home
We will live just us alone
Safely in our holly home

    The singer doesn't want to be distracted from his lover by kids and crap like that. All sex all the time, no distractions.

    I never understood the 'bloody planet' lyric until reading here about all the 'bodies in the reeds'. i think this song is a bit obstreperous, hard to tango with and wrap my head around, but it is so d**m catchy and really gets you excited about the song and the lyrics are clearly a bit twisted so i think Will here is showing the absolute folly of trying to rid your world of 'all who harm us' and yet we see the other's point of view by wanting to keep the 'babies bouncing on their knee' safe. it'a a cranky sort of i-want-to-be-safe-at-all-costs sort of song i think after a few listens it really does make its point.

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.

Love in a Vacuum
'Til Tuesday
Well, in my opinion this song is about being a young & maybe a little naive &/or introverted girl and finding yourself loving a man who is at first very charming, carefree & outgoing, and seems at first to be without limits, as in "There was a time you opened up every doorway you didn't mind if everything wasn't your way" then that man starts to gradually become more introverted & shows their more possessive/obsessive side to you as the relationship progresses, even while they keep up the appearance of being carefree & outgoing to everyone else, "Don't pull away that goes against what you told me I look in your eyes I realize what you've sold me is love in a vacuum" so you confront them about the way they're acting and of course they deny it, "I think you've changed but you insist that that's not true" quite possibly they are an addict of some sort, my guess would be cocaine, &/or showing very obsessive behavior towards you (early on in the video for this song we see the man hanging a picture up, it is a very large portrait of Aimee & it is prominently displayed in his/their apartment for the duration of the song), thus their "love in a vacuum", "You look so strange, so distant that you're hardly you Now I can see how you have been acting different You say it's me but I know that it isn't it's love in a vacuum" but still you are in love with them and don't want to leave them and you know that they are truly in love with you and they don't want you to leave them either, maybe they are convinced you can save them from themself, maybe they are so broken that the possibility of an overdose &/or suicide attempt is very real and you want to get through to them that their behavior not only dangerous but it is also just pissing you off and if they don't wise up they run the risk of loosing you, as in the lines "You will be lonely if you leave me alone", so you want to save them but can't get through to them due to the addiction &/or emotional problems they have, "Love in a vacuum and that's not enough love in a vacuum You will be lonely you'll be the only one who feels this way You will be lonely if you leave me alone You will be lonely you'll be the only one who feels this way it's just not enough" you want them to understand that the love they are giving you is not enough when it is filtered through the vacuum of their drug addiction &/or emotional impairment, "You will be lonely you'll be the only one who feels this way it's just not enough and just wait you will be lonely Love in a vacuum Love in a vacuum and that's not enough Love in a vacuum". 'Love In A Vacuum' for me is a hauntingly truthful acute argument on the loneliness of obsession and almost inevitable loss of love that follows people who are broken in some way or another; the obsessives, the coke heads, the drunks, addicts or the just-plain-old emotionally broken; a razor sharp, lyrically driven, deceptively poppy, yet ultimately-depressing-in-the-best-way song. Quintessential Aimee Mann.

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.
