Even when the warning is
Even when the warning is

So where have you gone
Have you gone so far from the eyes that
Speak trouble and even when the warning is

Well it's hard to hide from
Eyes that are all over you
That only some
Make you lose your composure

"Well it's hard on my heart"
Said, "Well open your eyes"
"Yeah, it gets harder every day"
Said, "I need to know now "

Soon you will be gone
Take your violet and blue
Mornings with you

Ooh woo ooh ooh
Ooh woo ooh ooh

So you hide out
Like you think that you never left
Tried to tell him that his heart is in his hands
Ooh, yes

"Well it's hard on my heart"
He said, "Open your eyes"
"Yeah, it gets harder every day"
He said, "I need to know that"

Soon you will be gone
Take your violet and blue
Mornings with you

Ooh woo ooh ooh
Ooh woo ooh ooh

Ten thousand times
Oh I tried to tell you
When you close your eyes
Well I can't see inside you
With the touch of your hand
Well it starts again
Whoa yeah!

Every though the warning is

So we both play
It gets under your skin
And we both the love the road
But the roads are different

"You know it's hard on my heart"
Ooh, he says "open your eyes"
"Yeah, it gets harder every day"
He says, "I need to know"

Soon you will be gone
Take your violet and blue
Morning with you

Ah ha ha-uh
Ooh ooh ooh

Take it with you ah-uh
Take it with you ahuh
Take it with you baby
Ooh take it with you ah!

Ooh ooh ooh ooh

Make you lose your composure
Ooh, it's overwhelming
Make you lose your composure
Oh, it's overwhelming

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.

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.

Techno Ted
Techno Ted may be a person who caused Chris incredible emotional pain & trepidation as well as moments of peace & happiness but now is removed and awaiting his fate. Darling may be a different person who is also free of him and can live her life free of Ted's tyranny. "In between all the laughing, and daydreams ... lies: a desert of truth" Lies are like a desert or the omission of Truth: Where there were Lies then Truth was absent. The song, "Techno Ted", may be a cathartic celebration of the downfall of this person.

Light Up The Sky
Van Halen
The song lyrics were written by the band Van Halen, as they were asked to write a song for the 1979 movie "Over the Edge" starring Matt Dillon. The movie (and the lyrics, although more obliquely) are about bored, rebellious youth with nothing better to do than get into trouble. If you see the movie, these lyrics will make more sense. It's a great movie if you grew up in the 70s/80s you'll definitely remember some of these characters from your own life. Fun fact, after writing the song, Van Halen decided not to let the movie use it.
