The Clash – Safe European Home Lyrics 5 years ago
What a song to open an album with!

Manic Street Preachers – Virginia State Epileptic Colony Lyrics 5 years ago
Yeah, I think the "cleaning, cooking flower arranging" bit is about how none of us are really free/liberated, we all conform to society.

Manic Street Preachers – All Is Vanity Lyrics 5 years ago
Pretty sure the "one bread one food one milk that's all" is about communism rather than eating disorders.

Morrissey – The National Front Disco Lyrics 5 years ago
It seems to me he's singing about the fact that "David" is clinging to his own vision of what England used to be and should still be like, when really it was never that way.

Manic Street Preachers – Slash N' Burn Lyrics 5 years ago
It's about deforestation, apparently

Manic Street Preachers – Jackie Collins Existential Question Time Lyrics 5 years ago
It's a shame the "And if you buy new lingerie, but your husband doesn't notice" line was left out

What the hell does that line actually mean?

May I also add, it's absolutely beautiful.

Hard not to read this as Richey's suicide note.

I don't even wanna hazard a guess as to what this is about, but it's fucking great.

The Smiths – Meat Is Murder Lyrics 5 years ago
Honestly, I know far, far more meat-eaters who will take every opportunity they can to be like "HAHAHAHA I'M GOING TO GO AN EAT MCDONALDS NOW" to vegetarians, than I know extremist vegetarians who freak out over people eating meat.

Manic Street Preachers – Black Dog on My Shoulder Lyrics 5 years ago
My favourite song off the album. Also:
"Does it matter if you really ever know?"
Can that be about anything other than Richey?

submissions
Manic Street Preachers – Everything Must Go Lyrics 5 years ago
Yeah, basically saying to all manics fans of the time that without richey they won't be the same band

Razorlight – America Lyrics 5 years ago
Oh an razorlight lover - I'm leaning towards the idea that you're taking the piss. If so well done, that was ace. If not then thank you anyway, I got a good laugh either way

submissions
Razorlight – America Lyrics 5 years ago
Lyrically, this song is unspeakable shit. If you just listen to it without paying any attention to the words it actually sounds somewhat decent, but this song is a great example of people deciding a song is meaningful and deep because the lyrics are vague and the music has a contemplative feel to it, when in reality it's likely that hardly any thought went into them.

Also, tcannabis, you're an idiot.

Manic Street Preachers – Crucifix Kiss Lyrics 5 years ago
"christen me,führer, Nazarene". What a fucking lyric!

submissions
Manic Street Preachers – Condemned To Rock N' Roll Lyrics 5 years ago
"the past is so beautiful the future like a corpse in snow I think it's all the fucking same" is about how people look back on the past as if it was wonderful and that now everything is awful and the future is
doomed when really not much is all that different

submissions
Manic Street Preachers – Sleepflower Lyrics 5 years ago
behind roses in the hospital and from despair to where it's probably the best on gold against the soul (although I personally prefer a couple others). Killer riff and the melody fits well with the lyrics

submissions
Manic Street Preachers – Faster Lyrics 5 years ago
I think it's important to remember Richey (and Nicky, actually) used to carry around notepads and scrawl down thoughts they had and would often use them as lyrics. A lot of this song could formed from putting together lines from notes that fitted together well, rather than it all being about 1984 or something. Personally I agree with MissD, I've always thought it was something like that, but I couldn't articulate it as well.

submissions
Manic Street Preachers – Mausoleum Lyrics 5 years ago
Gotta love how he sings the whole "Regained your self-control... your meaning, your meaning" bit in only one breath. Adds a lot to the lyrics which are powerful on their own anyway.

submissions
Manic Street Preachers – Love's Sweet Exile Lyrics 5 years ago
Class struggle, etc, I assume, like a lot of their songs. Don't think the title really has much to do with the rest of the song.

submissions
ABBA – Waterloo Lyrics 5 years ago
AWESOME AWESOME SONG. Meaning is obvious and has been mentioned.

submissions
Manic Street Preachers – This Is Yesterday Lyrics 6 years ago
I always assumed Richey wrote it, and Nicky wrote ifwhiteamerica and P.C.P., because both of those songs rhyme and are political. This seems far more like one Richey would write. But I dunno, I'm only guessing.

submissions
Manic Street Preachers – Motown Junk Lyrics 6 years ago
The "I laughed when Lennon got shot" bit sort of a way of demonstrating that you can get away with saying anything in a pop song because people don't care about the words, and only listen to the overall sound. According to Nicky Wire, anyway.

submissions
The Stone Roses – One Love Lyrics 6 years ago
I don't think it means anything, and I think it was written Squire on coke, but the guitar is out of this world

submissions
The Stone Roses – Standing Here Lyrics 6 years ago
They've got so many good songs. Could potentially have been so much bigger than they were.

submissions
The Smashing Pumpkins – Disarm Lyrics 6 years ago
Am I the only one who this reminds me of Columbine? I know it's not about it and was made before Columbine, but the lyrics would've still made sense if they where about it.

submissions
Manic Street Preachers – Motorcycle Emptiness Lyrics 6 years ago
Same as a lot of people have said, I just liked the song at first because of the cool guitar riff and overall sound, because the words are really hard to understand. But I like it a lot more now after seeing the words. Really powerful message but written in a poetic way. The first two lines are brilliant.

submissions
DragonForce – Through the Fire and Flames Lyrics 6 years ago
It's just about a big fucking battle

submissions
The Stone Roses – What The World Is Waiting For Lyrics 6 years ago
Firstly this is a classic Stone Roses song. As for the meaning I think there's a lot of Biblical stuff in there like in other Stone Roses songs. The "He loves his brother he'd sell him for a fistful of gold" kinda reminds me of the story of Joseph and the Technicoloured Dreamcoat though though, haha.

submissions
David Bowie – Starman Lyrics 6 years ago
The Starman waiting in the sky is Ziggy Stardust, I think. Would fit in well with the album anyway, seeing as though it's the 3rd (I think) song on it and is meant to be before Ziggy comes to Earth.

submissions
Oasis – Roll With It Lyrics 6 years ago
In some bits the lyrics are upbeat "Fuck what anyone else thinks" kinda stuff, then it's got other lines saying exactly the opposite. I'm looking into it too much but I've always interpreted it as saying that it's impossible not to care what anyone else thinks of you no matter how much you try to convince yourself you don't.

I'm 90% sure that isn't what it's actually meant to mean, mind. It probably isn't meant to mean anything.

submissions
Oasis – Some Might Say Lyrics 6 years ago
It isn't about anything. I tried to put meaning to it but you can't, it's just a collection a clever little rhymes with a good melody, there is no overall meaning (like D'you Know What I Mean, only less boring)

submissions

Agree with jassss about the first verse... I never really got that bit.

Blur – Country House Lyrics 6 years ago
Ironic that this song, over 10 years later, could totally apply to Blur's bassist (forgot his name). He's a farmer now lol.

I prefer Oasis to Blur but this song is better than Roll With it and rightly beat it in my opinion.

The Beatles – Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds Lyrics 6 years ago
I'm guessing sean13 probably likes Blink182 and Greenday.

submissions
David Bowie – Sound and Vision Lyrics 6 years ago
"For me, it reminds me of the thought-process of something or coming up with an elaborate plan or idea."

I like that idea actually. Always struck me as him saying he wants to get away from everything and be a reclusive and just be able to think about everything, but that's far to obvious I guess. It's probably about drugs...

submissions
David Bowie – Ziggy Stardust Lyrics 6 years ago
Brilliant riff. Very under rated song actually, it's easily up there with Heroes and Space Oddity and in my opinion his best song.

submissions
Don McLean – American Pie Lyrics 6 years ago
The Lennon/Lenin read a book on Marx bit is a pun, I think. You're supposed to wonder which one it is. Life On Mars by David Bowie has the same pun.

submissions
My Chemical Romance – The End. Lyrics 6 years ago
Blingy16 is right. Just them trying to be as good as Bowie but failing.

submissions
The Rolling Stones – Get Off Of My Cloud Lyrics 6 years ago
It's about the uproar of attention they got after Satisfaction, apparently.

The Beatles – A Day in the Life Lyrics 6 years ago
The Paul's Dead thing is retarded, they couldn't have found a replacement who looked like him, could play bass brilliantly, could sign like him and was left handed.

submissions
The Stone Roses – Fools Gold Lyrics 6 years ago
I think it's probably just about disliking greed and not being obsessed by money.

But what I love about his song is how the vocals, bass, guitar and drums are all fucking amazing. One of the best tracks instrumentally of all time, coming very close to stuff like Won't Get Fooled Again.
