Re: Octa Lyrics from the liner notes. (long)



OK, nobody's suggested this yet, to my knowledge, so I'm going out 
on a limb and suggesting that "Take The Bench" is at least partially 
about Alanis Morrissette (sorry to bring the name up).  Mainly due 
to the word Irony (is it really capitalized in the lyric sheet?) and 
the shallowness indicated in the chorus.

Comments?
