Have you noticed
That people are still having sex?
All the denouncement
Had absolutely no effect.
Parents and counselors
Constantly scorn them,
But people are still having sex
And nothing seems to stop them.

Do you realize
That people are still having sex?
They've been told no to,
Perhaps they are perplexed.
When you see them holding hands
They are making future plans
To engage in the activity;
Do you understand me?

People are still having sex.
Lust keeps on lurking.
Nothing makes them stop;
This AIDS thing's not working.

People are still having sex;
It's been going on for quite a while.
Perhaps it is quite fashionable.
It hasn't gone out of style.

It's a fact that people are still having sex;
It's rather obvious--
It's just what one expects.
The evidence is all around
That everyone in everytown
Has had it at one time or another in their life.

At this very moment,
People are still having sex.
In a downtown condo
Or a street in the projects.
Even though you can't see them
Or hear their breathing sounds,
Someone in this world
Is having sex right now.

People are still having sex.
People are still having sex.
People are still having sex.
People are still having sex.

Sex, sex, sex, sex, sex...

    LOL i love this song. When I had a stupid dance class at school, my friends and I took snippets of this song out and put it on our final dance. Haha.

    Though it should be "Teenagers" instead of "People" at least, it makes more sense in the beginning because of the whole parents and counselors constantly scorn them.

    Since Parents and Counselors wouldn't scorn just any adult for having sex.

    the clue is in "this AIDS thing's not working". it's like if some laboratory technician was singing, as if AIDS was an experiment... despite this curious line, the hole song is really LOL

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.

Battle Royale
Word Alive, The
This song is def a twin to "Unfair" (a song she has been quoted as saying is about falling in love with someone who is already in a relationship) so it is presumably about the same person. Given the references to buying an apartment and not being able to see her love interest "after tonight," it's most likely that she's moving away and she'll "wait a day to break the bad news" (i.e. notifying him that she's leaving once she's already gone). And, of course, the fact that she sees in him a fellow "idealist" and "dreamer" (terms commonly given to people with the INFP personality on the Myers–Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI)) portends that she'll always be left wondering if they would've been perfect together.

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.
