  • Zakia from Columbia, ScFor some reason this song always reminds me of those stories in the 80's and 90's about women being excluded from military academies and high ranking positions in the Armed Forces...then those who successfully entered those ranks were subjected to even worse sexual discrimination, assaults and degradation by their male and women counterparts, in order to maintain the status quo. Tori often refers to women betraying other women and sexual assault/aggression in her lyrics.
  • Theresa from Murfreesboro, TnI love this song, the lyrics are so true even though they are obscure.
  • Cylia from Lucasville, OhNot only does Tori Amos refer to Neil Gaiman in her albums, but he also refers to her in his Books. For example, in Stardust, Neil created a part for Tori in the book as a tree that warns Tristran about the witches who wish to kill Evaine for her heart.
