I guess you're right
And there's nothing I would say to you this time
You told me just what I had to live for
And there's no flight in my fight
And more than that it's so all right, it's so all right

If I meet more than your eye
I guess you're right
If I wake up in your mind
I guess you're right

I guess you're smart
Cause I'm taken by you taking me apart
I could best believe I died to live for
For the hour dictates the need and I am speaking like I'm spoken only for

If I meet more than your eye
I guess you're right
If I wake up in your mind
I guess you're right
If I sink into your sleep and make it deep
I guess you're right
If I never let you go I'll know you so and oh so right

If I meet more than your eye
I guess you're right
If I wake up in your mind
I guess you're right
Can I crawl around your bones and make my home
Would that be right?
If I never let you go I know you so
And you're so right

Take it as a sign
Take in every sound you hear, take every sigh
Take my desire, take it all, take it as proof
Take me in this life I've taken you

    How has no one commented on this song yet?! It's great!!

    As for the meaning: I think it's about a guy proving his love to a girl. I think they had an argument and he is tired of her dominating him. He constantly repeats "I guess you're right" and says "I guess you're smart." He is doing everything he can to prove that he loves her and is committed to her: "Take my desire, take it all, take it as proof, Take me in this life I've taken you." Great song with great melody.

    My Interpretation

    I take it as the guy's in a relationship where the girl is mentally dominant, and either he likes the abuse, or he's too weak to leave, so he's just saying 'I guess you're right, because I must be wrong." type of thing.

    What I think is the guy is confessing to the girl that she is right.

    He says he's speechless on her words.

    she had convinced him its worth living

    he won't leave her in their relationship

    and now he's okay, he's okay

    If he seems more than he looks

    He guesses she's right

    if he's in her imagination

    He guesses she's right

    He admits she's smart

    He likes how she breaks down his personality

    he could believe he had died before

    since right now he's needy

    Like people only speak for him

    if he seems like more than he looks

    He thinks she's right

    if he's in her fantasies

    He thinks she's right

    if he appears in her dreams in a deep sleep

    he thinks she's right

    if he never lets her leave he'll know she's so so right

    if he seems more than he looks

    He guesses she's right

    If he's in her fantasies

    He guesses she's right

    if he claims her as his only own

    Would that be right?

    if he never lets her leave he'll know her so so right

    Take it as a clue

    Listen to him make love to her

    accept his lust as proof of his love for her

    Take his heart... He's taken her

    ((that's how I break down each of the lyrics in the song in order. Its just how I see it. Love the song btw.))

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.

Like a lot of the other comments are saying, I think this mainly about voyeurism. If the song was about his girlfriend, then why would he use the word spy. If you are a spy it means you shouldn't be caught, that is kind of the whole point, and if you are a voyeur, the whole point of the pleasure you get from it, is the fact that the other people don't know you are watching them. See a bit of a connection there?

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.

Son Şansın - Şarkı Sözleri

This song seemingly tackles the methods of deception those who manipulate others use to get victims to follow their demands, as well as diverting attention away from important issues. They'll also use it as a means to convince people to hate or kill others by pretending acts of terrorism were committed by the enemy when the acts themselves were done by the masters of control to promote discrimination and hate. It also reinforces the idea that these manipulative forces operate in various locations, infiltrating everyday life without detection, and propagate any and everywhere. In general, it highlights the danger of hidden agendas, manipulation, and distraction, serving as a critique of those who exploit chaos and confusion to control and gain power, depicting a cautionary tale against falling into their traps. It encourages us to question the narratives presented to us and remain vigilant against manipulation in various parts of society.

I think much like another song “Anti-Matter” (that's also on the same album as this song), this one is also is inspired by a horrifying van crash the band experienced on Nov 3, 2022. This, much like the other track, sounds like it's an extension what they shared while huddled in the wreckage, as they helped frontman Garrett Russell stem the bleeding from his head wound while he was under the temporary effects of a concussion. The track speaks of where the mind goes at the most desperate & desolate of times, when it just about slips away to all but disconnect itself, and the aftermath.
