this House is like Russia
with eyes cold and grey
you got me moving in a circle
i dyed my hair red today

i just want a little passion
to hold me in the dark
i know i've got some magic
buried deep in my heart, yeah
but my priest says,
"You ain't savin' no souls."
My father says,
"You ain't makin' any money."
My doctor says,
"You just took it to the limit."
And here I stand
with this sword in my hand

you can say it one more time
what you don't like
let me hear it one more time
and have a seat while I
take to the sky

my heart is Like the ocean
it gets in the way
so close to touching freedom
then I hear the guards call my name
but my priest says,
"You ain't savin' no souls."
My father says,
"You ain't makin' any money."
My doctor says,
"You just took it to the limit."
And here I stand
with this sword in my hand

you can say it one more time
what you don't like
let me hear it one more time
and have a seat while I
take to the sky

if you don't like me just a little
why do you hang around
there she goes again
wearing those purple panties
there she goes again
wearing her heart
there she goes again
why do you
take it, take it, take it

    General Commentthis song has to be one of my favourite tori amos songs, it reminds me of a painting i did awhile back ~

    i really believe it's about control in general, lost and gained control but in the end well, you're the one with the sword, you're the one with the power, it's up to you, really, what your future holds and all. its hard to disregard people telling you otherwise, pushing you around and stuff, dominating your thoughts and actions. but yeah... it really is all left up to you in the end. :) and then everyone who talks down to you and takes control of you... well, it would be satisfying to be able to take to the sky, you know. like showing them what you can really do.
