In yellow shoes, I get the blues
So I walk the streets with my plastic feet
My blue velvet trousers, make me feel pink
There's a kind of stink about blue velvet trousers

In my paisley shirt, I look a jerk
And my turquoise waistcoat is quite out of sight
But oh oh, my haircut looks so bad
Vegetable man, where are you?

So I change my gear, and I find my knees
And I cover them up with the latest cut
And my pants and socks all point in a box
They don't make long for my nylon socks
The watch, black watch
My watch with a black face
And a big pin, a little hole
And all that lot is what I got
It's what I wear, it's what you see
It must be me, it's what I am
Vegetable man

Ha hahaha hahaha
Ha hahaha hahaha

I've been looking all over the place for a place for me
But it ain't anywhere, it just ain't anywhere
Vegetable man
Vegetable man
Vegetable man
Vegetable man

It's the kind of person, you just gonna see me if you can
Vegetable man
Vegetable man
Vegetable man
Vegetable man

It's the kind of person, you just gonna see me if you can
Vegetable man
Vegetable man
Vegetable man
Vegetable man

It's the kind of person, you just gonna see me if you can
Vegetable man
Vegetable man
Vegetable man
Vegetable man

It's the kind of person, you just gonna see me if you can
Vegetable man
Vegetable man
Vegetable man
Vegetable man

It's the kind of person, you just gonna see me if you can
Vegetable man
Vegetable man
Vegetable man
Vegetable man

It's the kind of person, you just gonna see me if you can
Vegetable man

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.

The Night We Met
Lord Huron
This is a hauntingly beautiful song about introspection, specifically about looking back at a relationship that started bad and ended so poorly, that the narrator wants to go back to the very beginning and tell himself to not even travel down that road. I believe that the relationship started poorly because of the lines: "Take me back to the night we met:When the night was full of terrors: And your eyes were filled with tears: When you had not touched me yet" So, the first night was not a great start, but the narrator pursued the relationship and eventually both overcame the rough start to fall in love with each other: "I had all and then most of you" Like many relationships that turn sour, it was not a quick decline, but a gradual one where the narrator and their partner fall out of love and gradually grow apart "Some and now none of you" Losing someone who was once everything in your world, who you could confide in, tell your secrets to, share all the most intimate parts of your life, to being strangers with that person is probably one of the most painful experiences a person can go through. So Painful, the narrator wants to go back in time and tell himself to not even pursue the relationship. This was the perfect song for "13 Reasons Why"

Mountain Song
Jane's Addiction
Jane's Addiction vocalist Perry Farrell gives Adam Reader some heartfelt insight into Jane’s Addiction's hard rock manifesto "Mountain Song", which was the second single from their revolutionary album Nothing's Shocking. Mountain song was first recorded in 1986 and appeared on the soundtrack to the film Dudes starring Jon Cryer. The version on Nothing's Shocking was re-recorded in 1988. "'Mountain Song' was actually about... I hate to say it but... drugs. Climbing this mountain and getting as high as you can, and then coming down that mountain," reveals Farrell. "What it feels to descend from the mountain top... not easy at all. The ascension is tough but exhilarating. Getting down is... it's a real bummer. Drugs is not for everybody obviously. For me, I wanted to experience the heights, and the lows come along with it." "There's a part - 'Cash in now honey, cash in Miss Smith.' Miss Smith is my Mother; our last name was Smith. Cashing in when she cashed in her life. So... she decided that, to her... at that time, she was desperate. Life wasn't worth it for her, that was her opinion. Some people think, never take your life, and some people find that their life isn't worth living. She was in love with my Dad, and my Dad was not faithful to her, and it broke her heart. She was very desperate and she did something that I know she regrets."
