So where did you sleep the night before?
I doubt that your phone was dying
I'm supposed to believe that was what you wore?
Said you were alone, I don't buy it
Now I can't stay

Surrounded by every lie that won't come true
Now you wanna take the time, now why would you?
Think you're gonna make it right, but how could you?
So I can't stay, surrounded by (surrounded by) every lie

You might as well just stop crying
It doesn't mean much to me anymore
A little too late to start trying
I'm taking this love off of life support
Now I can't stay

Surrounded by every lie that won't come true
Now you wanna take the time, now why would you?
Think you're gonna make it right, but how could you?
So I can't stay, surrounded by (surrounded by) every lie

Every lie that won't come true
Now you wanna take the time, now why would you?
Think you're gonna make it right, but how could you?
So I can't stay, surrounded by (surrounded by) every lie

Trying to undo the love that I'm tied to
Who haven't you lied to?

With every lie that won't come true
Now you wanna take the time, now why would you?
Think you're gonna make it right, but how could you?
So I can't stay, surrounded by (surrounded by) every lie

Every lie that won't come true
Now you wanna take the time, now why would you?
Think you're gonna make it right, but how could you?
So I can't stay, surrounded by
No I won't stay, surrounded by (surrounded by) every lie

Shudder to Think
This song is timeless, and nearly 20 years after its creation, still possesses the mystique it did the first time i heard it ~1994. To me, at first blush, all those years ago, it had some kind of homo-erotic allure. The line "so that the others may do" tells of something which must be done for others to follow suit. It felt like like some kind of roxy-glam-pop invitation to sexual liberation. Upon further introspection I think the song may not have an intrinsic meaning, but simply represents a sort of "holding open the door" for people who otherwise might be affronted by this song/band's unusual style. I know, as a sort of armchair rock-historian, that there have been few bands so daring and so true to the sound that wanted to emerge from within, whether the creator wanted it or not. This band handled it with elegance and grace seldom, if ever, seen.

Anti-Hero

I believe this is another amazingly on point and nuanced commentary on the insanity that follows emotionally abusive relationships. The abuser has no anxieties, no emotional pain, or salience/memory for that matter, so the survivor appears to be the crazy one, obsessed with the abuse and that buzzword that seems to ignite arguments about diagnosing people without a degree, etc. funny how you say the words domestic violence, abuse, abuse survivor and boom the subject changes. Anyways, I especially relate to her midnights becoming afternoons, complex PTSD often leads to this phenomenon, whether due to purposeful sleep deprivation by the abuser, or just hyper vigilance associated with the PTSD, along with the fear of facing people, especially your loved ones, who Never actually understand, even if they try, because all they see is you, on fire, screaming about the arsonist that no one ever sees, and who has been spreading lies about your alleged mental instability, deceptive personality, etc. the whole time. While the last thing survivors need is more blame, our society supports a narrative that blames the objectively innocent party because the blatantly guilty party has spent their entire lives fabricating a persona and we’re just being human, and human psychology is quite counterintuitive especially in the context of trauma. Look at Amber Heard. Vilified and not believed, regardless of what any abuse survivor could recognize as a fellow survivor instantly. But Johnny depp is a malignant narcissist, a man, and wealthy as all get out. It’s sick.
