welcome to alanis morissette lyrical analysis

admit it.

you're having trouble understanding alanis morissette. it's nothing to be ashamed of -- we've all grappled with lyrical riddles before, and alanis is probably the music industry's most notorious sphinx. not all of her lyrics, mind you -- songs like "unsent", "are you still mad" and "21 things i want in a lover" are perfectly content in being as straightforward as possible (perhaps a little too much so). but it's lines like "so here we both are battling similar demons (not coincidentally) / you see in getting beyond knowing it solely intellectually you're not relinquishing your majestry" that leave us all scratching our heads, if not screaming in anger and frustration. if only someone - some kind, selfless soul - can clear it all up for the rest of us.

and that's what this site is for.
