Bloody Thursday!? I'll bet you're the only who sees that. Could you elaborate on it...since we're all just "retards"?

Straylight Run – Hands in the Sky (Big Shot) Lyrics 7 years ago
This song is totally about the novel 1984. When he says "I wonder when they'll come and get me", he's referring to the thought police. In the book, after illegal writing in his journal (tear it out of these open pages), he asks himself when they'll come and get him. He goes on to write "theyll shoot me i dont care theyll shoot me in the back of the neck i dont care down with big brother" Big Brother is the big shot. The marching sound in the background is the blank-faced Eurasian army. The line about italicized lies and bold faced headlines refers the bold faced captions "Big Brother Is Watching You" and "War is Peace; Freedom is Slavery; Ignorance is Strength". Everything in this song fits into the book.

PS It seems to me that both Straylight Run and Brand New have been looking at the Radiohead approach lately....

Yeah, I don't hear it saying that...but I was thinking about it...and it seemed to make sense that way...

Brand New – Degausser Lyrics 8 years ago
A full sweep of the alkaline...or something like that. I hear sleep, but if indeed he says alkaline, sweep makes more sense (especially taking into account the rest of the song). A degausser neutralizes the magnetic field of something. Usually a tape or a disc. Sort of like a full sweep...

Brand New – [Untitled] Lyrics 8 years ago
Arters, if by most you mean you and one other person, then maybe. But of the people who've heard it backwards, you alone think it was recorded forwards. I'd say the same, except that after zeroing in on the left speaker and playing it backwards, the sound waves prove that it was recorded that way. I don't know how you think that your argument of "No, I heard it better forwards" refutes that evidence. I'm sorry that we have to be so argumentive on this, especially since I agree with a lot of your other comments on Brand New's songs...anyways, I'm done talking about this. My opinion on the matter won't change unless one of the bandmembers themselves corrects me.

Remy Zero – Yellow Light Lyrics 8 years ago
Is this song about Hell?

Brand New – [Untitled] Lyrics 8 years ago
I understand that things cut off when played backwards, but isolate the left speakers. Forwards, it fans out (). Thus, this track was recorded backwards. If I'm wrong, please explain why, but don't tell me that my point is invalid simply because you think you're certain of what it is.

Brand New – [Untitled] Lyrics 8 years ago
OK, Arter, I admit. It does sound like the forward version is the right one, but just by looking at the soundwaves and the direction in which they are meant to be played, you'd know it was recorded backwards. Secondly, I have tried turning off the right speaker, and it is not at all clear what he's saying. Lastly, I do at least agree with you in that it is Jesse's voice.

The song at the end of this track is amazing. You know, the instrumental one...gut-wrenching even.

This song is awesome!

Brand New – [Untitled] Lyrics 8 years ago
I played this one backwards and got the same (this never ends). It sounds like Jesse's voice by the way...

Anyways, seeing as the whole album's about the Devil and God Raging Inside and about how he's always have to come back to God in repentance to me says that this song is him saying that he wishes that this would just end. He wants to grow out of it and mature beyond stupidity and stuff.

Brand New – Tautou Lyrics 8 years ago
The song, Millstone, on the new album reminds me of this song a lot lyrically. It's almost like the millstone's drowning him in this song. I don't know if that's what Jesse meant, but I like to believe that the two songs are linked.

The Killers – Bling (Confession of a King) Lyrics 8 years ago
Confessions of a king. That's what this song is about in the end. He compromised his whole life until he didn't even know what was right and what was wrong. It's not hard to hold when it shines like gold...

U2 – Acrobat Lyrics 8 years ago
I think that he's saying that he's not practicing what he preaches (I must be an acrobat to talk like this and act like that). I think that he is specifically talking about his faith.

The Dissociatives – Young Man, Old Man Lyrics 8 years ago
Daniel Johns fits into the catergory of young man. In the Bible, Jesus said to have faith like a child's. Daniel Johns throughout the verses says that his faith is cold, unlike a child's, and that the little boys are the better ones...

The Dissociatives – Aaängry Megaphone Man Lyrics 8 years ago
My best shot at this is hunting. You see, Daniel Johns is a huge animal rights fanatic dude. He's telling us that if we keep "abusing" and hunting these animals, they'll strike back. For every shot that's slung...that's saying that every strike we make will unsettle them more until the whales cry out and cause the sea to overflow and flood us all.

Jet – Shiny Magazine Lyrics 8 years ago
Ooh, Beatles-esque for sure. Um, this is a guess on my part, but could this song be about some girl whose life went down a destructive path? She's in a pretty magazine (shiny even) but she was so sweet that he can't stand it. Maybe?

Arcade Fire – Cold Wind Lyrics 8 years ago
Arcade Fire just plain rocks, eh? It seems to me that this song is about a tragic car accident that took his life.

submissions
U2 – Elevation Lyrics 8 years ago
I think that this song is kind of prayer for God to lift Bono up and mold him into a better man. I've heard a lot of people tell me that "I and I" usually is used to illustrate some kind of relationship between God and man. Anyways, Bono across the board paints a picture of the celebrity life. Then he asks God for some elevation. He asks God to live him up out of the blues. Cliche? Yeah, maybe, but it fits.

Remy Zero – Prophecy Lyrics 8 years ago
Greatest song ever!

The title, Prophecy, obviously refers to religion, right? I believe he's "confronting" the hypocritical leaders of TBN churches. Many have been caught cheating people out of their money. These are often men who once had faith in God, but realized that profit could be made off of people and were overcome with greed. They panhandle whole congregations. They've been asking people who struggle to make ends meet to make "leaps of faith" and donate huge sums of money to the church. The preacher tucks the money away for himself (essentially robbing people of their money). So how do you feel, preacher, cuase you seem a little sick to me...

That's my take on this one.

Remy Zero – Gramarye Lyrics 8 years ago
I get the idea that this "magical" girl is some sort of siren. They all want you, they're destructive as fire, they call for you...

Or maybe it's about some cult...or drugs...

But I always hear it as sirens when I listen to it.

Remy Zero – Fair Lyrics 8 years ago
OK, so we all know that Remy Zero sounds a lot like U2 and Radiohead, but could we all stop comparing them to the two? Sorry, I just had to throw that out there. This song is beautiful, eh?

Radiohead – A Wolf at the Door (It Girl. Rag Doll) Lyrics 8 years ago
I would have to side with the people who think this song's about fear in general. Too many of the lines seem so unrelated except for the fear factor. This song certainly is amazing though...

Mute Math – Plan B Lyrics 8 years ago
Ditto to the two people before me. This iTunes freebie turned me on like no other. I immediately bought the album. Anyways, my friend thinks this song's about abortion (plan a failed...), but I disagree with him. I think it's just about making mistakes and the consequences of that. Now he's trying to figure out how to fix it all.

Dishwalla – Until I Wake Up Lyrics 8 years ago
This is definitely the greatest Dishwalla song of all time! I don't think this song has anything to do with God. I think he's just saying that sleep is amazing. Dreaming is awesome cause you don't have to stress over the things in life that can be such a headache...

Dishwalla – 40 Stories Lyrics 8 years ago
Interesting take on the song, jbisasky. I agree more with Eyecon, but you shed a new light on it...interesting. I do agree that this album was rocking though. I hope JR's solo stuff is awesome. I've only heard First Christmas as of yet...

Brand New – You Won't Know Lyrics 8 years ago
Hmm. This really changes the way I interpret this song. Jesse relates himself to this limousine story a lot on the new album. I like it. I'm just surprised by it. Especially since I thought he was saying something completely different before...

Seven represents "the perfect number" or "God". Man is 6. The devil is 666 (Solomon's wages)...
