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 CommentFirst, this was the first song written for little earthquakes. This is OBVIOUSLY a song about tori dealing with the painful embarrisment of Y KANT TORI READ. The album go HORRIBLE review, and after a while that really got to her, i mean would it get to you? "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"
    Jest look at that, its sorta tori amos bursting with a "Look at me! i wanna show you who i really am!" then come sthe lyrics which directly reference Y KANT TORI READ
    "And here I stand
    with this sword in my hand"
    Tori amos stands on the cover of Y KANT TORI READ with a sword.
    then, the lyrics...
    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."
    Reference's to how her FAMILEY AND FRIEDS feel about what she was doing abck then; how she wasn't beein herself.
