Whispering, whispering, whispering, whispering
As I pass myself down to my knees
Whispering, whispering, whispering, whispering
As I fall through the willow trees, and I said
Who will care for the fallen?
Who will care for the falling, leaves?

Whispering, whispering, whispering, whispering
As I fall through the willow trees, and I said
Who will care for the fallen?
Who will care for the fallen?

Autumn shades, calm my shaking hands,
Tender, cool breeze, keeps me where I am
Suddenly here, when I want to scream

Autumn calms me down, keeps me in my dreams
Then I went whispering, whispering, whispering, whispering
As I pass myself down to my knees

Whispering, whispering, those dew drops are glistening
As I fall through the willow trees, and I said
Who will care for the fallen?
Who would care for the fallen?

Autumn shades, calm my shaking hands
Tender, cool breeze keeps me where I am
Suddenly here, when I want to scream
Autumn calms me down, leaves me in her dreams

Keep on falling down, they keep on falling down
Keep on falling down, keep on falling down

Autumn shades, calm my shaking hands
Tender, cool breeze, keeps me where I am
Suddenly here, when I want to scream
Autumn calms me down, leaves me in my dreams

Autumn shades, calm my shaking hands
Tender, cool breeze, keeps me where I am
Suddenly hearing, when I want to scream
Oh, please just cut me down, leave me in my dreams

    I believe this song is an analogy between Autumn and Thanotos; the Greek god of death. Thanatos would carry those whose time had passed into the underworld. The calming caretaker of the falling.

    "Whispering" is a metaphor for fading away. "Who will care for the falling?" "Autumn shades, calm my shaking hands" "Suddenly here. When I want to scream, Autumn calms me down, leaves me in my dreams" -- the eternal sleep.

Ave Grave
Thee More Shallows
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.

Battle Royale
Word Alive, The
This song is def a twin to "Unfair" (a song she has been quoted as saying is about falling in love with someone who is already in a relationship) so it is presumably about the same person. Given the references to buying an apartment and not being able to see her love interest "after tonight," it's most likely that she's moving away and she'll "wait a day to break the bad news" (i.e. notifying him that she's leaving once she's already gone). And, of course, the fact that she sees in him a fellow "idealist" and "dreamer" (terms commonly given to people with the INFP personality on the Myers–Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI)) portends that she'll always be left wondering if they would've been perfect together.

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.
