Du var inte där för mig

Jag föll men inte fångade du mig
Du vände och gick hemåt till dig
Då jag krossades brutalt, vände du dig inte om
Fast du hade bett mig hoppa, fast du hade viskat - kom
Då jag fallit tror jag inte du såg
Hur förkrossad jag var där jag låg

Kanske har jag fel, men jag tyckte att du log
Och jag tänkte, om jag dör blir det för detta leende jag dog
Och jag minns hur jag så ner från en svindlande höjd
Där såg jag dig - leende och nöjd
Jag trodde du kommit hit för att möta mig
Men halvvägs i luften såg jag - att jag misstagit mig
Du var inte där för mig

Jag föll som om jag trodde att jag var
Beskyddad av dig - ja, osårbar
Jag visste inte då att ett ja kan bli ett nej
Men halvvägs i luften såg jag - att du hade ändrat dig
För utan tvekan vände du och gick
Du gick utan att möta min blick

Kanske har jag fel, men jag tyckte att du log
Och jag tänkte att om jag dör blir det för detta leende jag dog
Och jag minns jag såg ner från en svindlande höjd
Där såg jag dig - leende och nöjd
Jag trodde du kommit hit för att möta mig
Men halvvägs i luften såg jag - att jag misstagit mig

Du var inte där för mig
Du var inte där för mig
Du var inte där för mig
Du var inte där för mig

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.

Classic love story true to his western tx roots. One of my favorites as a story, but I think there are alot of songs that are amazing not even listed on this site. I guess I should figure out how to add them, because I have about 8 REK cd's.

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.

In regards to the meaning of this song: Before a live performance on the EP Five Stories Falling, Geoff states “It’s about the last time I went to visit my grandmother in Columbus, and I saw that she was dying and it was the last time I was going to see her. It is about realizing how young you are, but how quickly you can go.” That’s the thing about Geoff and his sublime poetry, you think it’s about one thing, but really it’s about something entirely different. But the lyrics are still universal and omnipresent, ubiquitous, even. So relatable. That’s one thing I love about this band. I also love their live performances, raw energy and Geoff’s beautiful, imperfectly perfect vocals. His voice soothes my aching soul.

I think much like another song “Anti-Matter” (that's also on the same album as this song), this one is also is inspired by a horrifying van crash the band experienced on Nov 3, 2022. This, much like the other track, sounds like it's an extension what they shared while huddled in the wreckage, as they helped frontman Garrett Russell stem the bleeding from his head wound while he was under the temporary effects of a concussion. The track speaks of where the mind goes at the most desperate & desolate of times, when it just about slips away to all but disconnect itself, and the aftermath.
