Bright Eyes – The Movement of a Hand Lyrics 10 years ago
The whole problem with trying to discuss songs like this is that they could be about anything.

It most readily sounds like it's talking about death. The "Hand" is a clock, waving goodbye.

Then again it could be about losing a relationship, as in knowing what it means to say goodbye is the ultimate joy.

It could also be about one of these things symbolically while talking about the other. Or it could be something different.

Then it could be about a specific situation that no one else will ever understand.

Or it could be drug-induced.

That's what is wrong with trying to discuss the meanings of songs like this. What it means is beyond what can be discussed. It has to be felt. Percieved with a different level of conciousness. The question then is no longer "What does this mean?" but rather, "How does this make me feel?". And if you answer THAT question, then you understand what the song is about.

Bright Eyes – Take It Easy (Love Nothing) Lyrics 10 years ago
This song is about sexual promiscuity, and how he doesn't feel guilty about it.

As for you emo elitist bastards trying to say you hope he doesn't get big, you are selfish pigs.

Good art should be appreciated by everyone.

If you people called the shots then no one would ever be able to hear any good music, because all the good bands would be lost in obscurity before they have a chance to really start making their best music.

I hate you.
