You claim your innocence, but I blame your reticence
For why I never knew no, never knew how you play.
One love has two equal parts, but you leave your love with your mark
On your unfortunate prey.
But there is no excuse,
I don't like being used. And someday it's gonna get back to you.

You're so predictable man. You hit the ground and you ran.
Ran as if I, if I could chase you.
But your dear delectable prize 'neath your near electrical skies
Is damn near disappointment at most.
I didn't know I paid for merely a masquerade.
So I want my money back , hey.

You're sorry that you hurt me so bad
Sorry if I thought you were madly in love
You only just pretend to start something that you can end.
Sorry you're addicted to cruel
Sorry has nothing to do with you
Go on play your games cause I'm sorry I'm too good for you anyways.

How is it up on your high horse
You know we miss you of course
But if a moment ever rolls around you may be interested in looking down
Cause you're not so far from the ground
I was a fool for you but you were foolish too. And fools never get the last laugh

You're sorry that you hurt me so bad
Sorry if I thought you were madly in love
You only just pretend to start something that you can end.
Sorry you're addicted to cruel
Sorry has nothing to do with you
Go on play your games cause I'm sorry I'm too good for you anyways.

You were an open book, but after a second look
I realized I was wasting my time.
I know how the story goes and everyone looks for a hero
And here we are one at a time, standing in line to tell you you're not mine.
But you're sorry

You're sorry that you hurt me so bad
Sorry if I thought you were madly in love
You only just pretend to start something that you can end.
Sorry you're addicted to cruel
Sorry has nothing to do with you
Go on play your games cause I'm sorry I'm too good for you anyways.

    I love this song. It just sums up what I want to say to a certain someone.

    It's about someone that led you on then let you go, said they never liked you anyway, he faked it ("i didn't know i paid for merely a masquerade") and she's sarcastically saying "sorry if I thought you were madly in love". it's about someone who manipulates people, tricks them, lies and uses them to make themselves feel better. So she's realised she's too good for him anyway, and she's telling him.

    Best line: "But there is no excuse, I don't like being used...and someday it's gonna get back to you." Oh yes it is. Oh, and "I was a fool for you but you were foolish too. And fools never get the last laugh."

    She needs to do a studio verson of this song it's too good!

    So, yeah. Though the song is self explanatory. Writing this all out, helped me realize things myself.

    Too good for you He calims his innoncence, but he only seems that way because he appears to be mysterious by his lack of communication, and a person like that is always hard to figure out. So, it's like you're always playing a game, even when it seems like you 'have' the person because you're together, you still haven't pinned them down. Which, normally always keeps one coming back for more.

    "One love has two equal parts", but uforunately the person is just a victim to 'the game'/ the chase of figuring the other out, or believing the other shares the same type of heart. That's the only way to really make it work.

    There is no excuse for how he went on about it, but what goes around comes around and it's going to bite him in the ass.

    It was forseen that when the shit hit the fan and he would run from the affectionate feeling. But she's not going to chase him, because the prize of winning his heart, is basically almost not even really worth the drama.

    One would want to get to know the REAL person, and not merely what the pretend to be in order to 'get' the person, instead of being real from the start, so that they may evolve into something more and true.

    She's sorry that she mistook his feelings as being the same as hers. He only pretended that he liked/loved her to get a prize, and if all didn't work out he would be the one to break it off. So, in the end it's like he's still the winner. She's sorry he's addicted to being this way, so crueal and misleading. Bt he can go on and play his games, because she knows that she's better off and can do so much better.

    The guy has a chip on his shoulder; the world doesn't revolve around him as much as he'd like to think it does. So she tells him, that they of course miss him and when it's fit to his schedule to come back down to earth; it's in his best interest to open his eyes and see things as they really are, because things aren't what they seem, or even people, in this case I suppose.

    She admits she was foolish, but knows that she wasn't alone in being a fool for him. Thus, he isn't the true winner in this game, since she has realized her mistake.

    In plain he's not as complicated as he once appeared. Once again, she has realized that she was wasting her time. And to those even before her, they're realizing their worth and that they're just too good for ihim, so it isn't much of a loss.

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.

Jesse with the long hair....
Robert Earl Keen, Jr.
Classic love story true to his western tx roots. One of my favorites as a story, but I think there are alot of songs that are amazing not even listed on this site. I guess I should figure out how to add them, because I have about 8 REK cd's.

Techno Ted
Audioslave
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.

Fortnight
Taylor Swift
The song 'Fortnight' by Taylor Swift and Post Malone tells a story about strong feelings, complicated relationships, and secret wishes. It talks about love, betrayal, and wanting someone who doesn't feel the same. The word 'fortnight' shows short-lived happiness and guilty pleasures, leading to sadness. It shows how messy relationships can be and the results of hiding emotions. “I was supposed to be sent away / But they forgot to come and get me,” she kickstarts the song in the first verse with lines suggesting an admission to a hospital for people with mental illnesses. She goes in the verse admitting her lover is the reason why she is like this. In the chorus, she sings about their time in love and reflects on how he has now settled with someone else. “I took the miracle move-on drug, the effects were temporary / And I love you, it’s ruining my life,” on the second verse she details her struggles to forget about him and the negative effects of her failure. “Thought of callin’ ya, but you won’t pick up / ‘Nother fortnight lost in America,” Post Malone sings in the outro.

Cajun Girl
Little Feat
Overall about difficult moments of disappointment and vulnerability. Having hope and longing, while remaining optimistic for the future. Encourages the belief that with each new morning there is a chance for things to improve. The chorus offers a glimmer of optimism and a chance at a resolution and redemption in the future. Captures the rollercoaster of emotions of feeling lost while loving someone who is not there for you, feeling let down and abandoned while waiting for a lover. Lost with no direction, "Now I'm up in the air with the rain in my hair, Nowhere to go, I can go anywhere" The bridge shows signs of longing and a plea for companionship. The Lyrics express a desire for authentic connection and the importance of Loving someone just as they are. "Just in passing, I'm not asking. That you be anyone but you”
