Well, I loved the devil
Loved his mind
Drank up all his barley wine
I didn't know I was missing

I loved a woman
Loved her wrong
Left my friends to tag along
I didn't know how to listen

And then you started to cry
Took me aside
And in my ear you whispered,
"I'll put my heart in your hand,
Show you the plan,
Though your love for me is withered away."

Then I came 'round
To all the truths I'd found
And I threw down
All the chains that bound me
I was made for loving you

So I skulked around—a drunken swine
Took your heart and gave you mine
You're the song I sing to

I left you hanging all alone
Threw my stench upon your throne
After all you've been through

And then you started to cry
Took me aside
And in my ear you whispered,
"I put my heart in your hand,
Showed you the plan,
And then your love for me withered away."

I came 'round
To all the truths I'd found
And I threw down
All the chains that bound me
I was made for loving you

    Beautiful song!

    I believe this song is about a man coming to realize that he was made for loving God. Wow. I couldn't have said it any better. Foy takes the words right out of my mouth.

    This is my cry to the Lord....

    Then I came 'round To all the truths I'd found And I threw down All the chains that bound me I was made for loving you

Corpse I Fell In Love With
Gadjits, The
He reuses the verse melody from the previous album's "Dirty Little Religion", the topics of the verses are all over the place, and he packs too many words into one line (goes to show...) and too few in another (it's pretty hard to find), and rhymes "Henley Regatta" with "Persona non grata", but gets away with it all as only he could.

He certainly did earn that reputation.

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.

Son Şansın - Şarkı Sözleri
Hayalperest
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.
