    Lightbulb Tori Amos: Song of the Week

    I'm sure many of you remember this thread on @ in which when we used to dedicate a week to a specific Tori song and discuss its studio performance, live performances, lyrics, production, the things we like and the things we hate about it.
    You can choose whichever Tori song you like: album track, b-side, soundtrack song, a well-known improv, a cover (if a live one, please have a link to download it if it's not officially released).

    We'll be starting with the first one who'll be suggesting a song he/she would like to talk about, and as this thread evolves, I'll be modifying the list according to the order in which I receive the requests.

    The rules, as written by Wout on @ are the following:
    If it's your turn, you make a thread like this: 'Song of the week: [insert song title]' sometime on that monday and I'll stick it for the duration of that week (you could even pm me if you posted it). It would be nice to include the lyrics in your first post... Then, say what you want about it: why you love or maybe even hate it, thoughts about the lyrics, what it means to you, a good memory of a live performance, bits and bobs worth mentioning: anything.
    And I'll add that it's preferable to have diverse posters in the beginning and later on the ones who would have already posted can post again. This would allow each of you to talk about his/her favorite song.

    Let the requests roll and be easy on the new material

    I would like to discuss "Witness", though I'm too chicken to be the first one. Tori said it was based on the gnostic gospels, I never totally understood how this could be.

    Again, someone else go first but when it is Witness' turn, I'll be ready
