I've been wondering what you meant
When you asked do you have a light?
I've been wondering where you went
When you left that party that night

Cloud blood smudge smeared on the sky
Its dawns roadkill
I've been driving since midnight
And I'm driving still

Stop on the top of the ridge
Just to feel the wind on my rand mcnally
Then I feel the air grow cold
As I drift in to the first blue of the valley

And you're wondering how far down you are on my
Call back list
But you don't realize
Everytime I find I'm by a phone the landscape shifts

Every other song someones trying to write
Angels into the world
Every grace every ace every near miss
Every decent kiss by a pretty girl

She was an angel
She looked like an angel

And all of the angels did sing
And the angels were watching
And the angels were listening
And the angels were on hand to stand in for everything

You can call it magic
When a man pulls a rabbit out of a hat
But the reason I don't call
Is 'cause I wonder if there isn't a better word than that

And you can call me crazy
But I think you're as lazy as white paint on the wall
And I know you'll only speak to me in dial tones
If I call

Its been way too long
Since I've been behind the wheel
Headlights guiding me right through the dark
I feel

Dry eyed, trying to resist
Sleeps first kiss
Everytime I have time to think
I think of this

Da da da da
Da da da
Da da

    I love love loveee this song! I passed it over when I bought this cd and stumbled on this song months later. Its powerful and heartfelt. I love the line... "I think you're as lazy as white paint on a wall, and I know you'll only speak to me in dial tones if I call." Its about desiring something so unattainable but coming to the conclusion that it is their loss. They think you are crazy but you know they are lazy and don't allow themselves to receive love.

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.

Techno Ted
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.

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"
