Straight as an arrow
Defect, defect
Not straight, not so straight
Reject, reject
Towards anti-social
Solo, solo

Standing on the stairs
Cold, cold morning
Ghostly image of fear
Mayday, mayday
Gonna leave this region
They'll take me with them

Dimension seven

Straight as an arrow
Defect, defect
Not straight, not so straight
Reject, reject
Towards anti-social
So dumb, so dumb

Standing on the stairs
Cold, cold morning
Ghostly image of fear
Mayday, mayday
Gonna leave this region
They'll take me with them

Dimension seven

Straight as an arrow
Defect, defect
Not straight, not so straight
Reject, reject
Towards anti-social
So dumb, so dumb

Dimension seven
Dimension seven
Dimension seven
Dimension seven
Dimension seven
Dimension seven
Dimension seven

    i think its about a dorky antisocial kid who gets rejected by people for being weird or antisocial. he fantasizes about aliens or whatever coming to take him away to a place where people are like him. i only think that because the line "dimension 7" sounds really sci-fi to me but it could mean death or the afterlife too

    Great song, but what about the jarring screech of the guitar in the middle and very end of it? Full on!

    I love this song so much!...in particular a version which has the bass and guitar taken out of the mix for about 20 seconds after the fast bit starts so that it is just Kurt singing and dave furiously drumming...it sounds so awesome! Try and find it on a file-sharing program like WinMX.

    This was never on an official Nirvana release. it was put on a tribute CD called (12 Songs for Greg Sage and The Wipers". Yes it is a cover. The best versions of this song are 1) The track off Outcesticide 1 which was (I guees you casn say) remixed, and the live version he did at Reading Festival 92.

    I love this song. The lyrics are great. Nirvana did a good Wipers cover. I don't know which version I like it more on, but either way, its a good song. I just like the lyrics...unperfect and haunting...

    I like the raw sound too it. The complete opposite of the sound on Nevermind (love the songs, just the production bothered me). But what can i say, Nirvana kicks ass anyways.

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
Audioslave
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.

Standing On The Edge Of Summer
Thursday
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.

Son Şansın - Şarkı Sözleri
Hayalperest
This song seemingly tackles the methods of deception those who manipulate others use to get victims to follow their demands, as well as diverting attention away from important issues. They'll also use it as a means to convince people to hate or kill others by pretending acts of terrorism were committed by the enemy when the acts themselves were done by the masters of control to promote discrimination and hate. It also reinforces the idea that these manipulative forces operate in various locations, infiltrating everyday life without detection, and propagate any and everywhere. In general, it highlights the danger of hidden agendas, manipulation, and distraction, serving as a critique of those who exploit chaos and confusion to control and gain power, depicting a cautionary tale against falling into their traps. It encourages us to question the narratives presented to us and remain vigilant against manipulation in various parts of society.
