Olhei até ficar cansado
De ver meus olhos no espelho
Chorei por ter despedaçado
As flores que estão no canteiro
Os pulsos os punhos cortados
O resto do meu corpo inteiro
Há flores cobrindo o telhado
E embaixo do meu travesseiro
Há flores por todos os lados
Há flores em tudo o que eu vejo
A dor vai curar essas lástimas
O soro tem gosto de lágrimas
As flores tem cheiro de morte
A dor vai fechar esses cortes
Flores, flores
As flores de plástico não morrem

Olhei até ficar cansado
De ver meus olhos no espelho
Chorei por ter despedaçado
As flores que estão no canteiro
Os pulsos os punhos cortados
O resto do meu corpo inteiro
Há flores cobrindo o telhado
E embaixo do meu travesseiro
Há flores por todos os lados
Há flores em tudo o que eu vejo
A dor vai curar essas lástimas
O soro tem gosto de lágrimas
As flores tem cheiro de morte
A dor vai fechar esses cortes
Flores, flores
As flores de plástico não morrem

Flores, flores
As flores de plástico não morrem

    Depression, suicide, death, pain, self-mutilation... All in a "happy" song.

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.

Spirit Within
Bertoldi Brothers
Warren wanted a Beach Boys thing for this one, and Carl Wilson and Billy Hinsche came in, with Carl arranging the vocal parts. The other harmony vocalists (credited as the "Gentlemen Boys") were Jackson Browne, J.D. Souther, Zevon's longtime backers Waddy Wachtel and Jorge Calderon, and Linda Rondstadt/Stone Poneys guitarist Kenny Edwards.

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.

Holiday
Bee Gees
@[Diderik:33655] "Your a holiday!" Was a popular term used in the 50s/60s to compliment someone on their all around. For example, not only are they beautiful, but they are fun and kind too ... just an all around "holiday". I think your first comment is closer to being accurate. The singer/song writers state "Millions of eyes can see, yet why am i so blind!? When the someone else is me, its unkind its unkind". I believe hes referring to the girl toying with him and using him. He wants something deeper with her, thats why he allows himself to be as a puppet (even though for her fun and games) as long as it makes her happy. But he knows deep down that she doesnt really want to be serious with him and thats what makes him.
