Little Comets – Violence Out Tonight Lyrics 4 years ago
This is about a woman betrayed by someone who she thought was trustworthy. Now the feeling now haunts her wherever she goes and by whatever she does, says, etc. 1/30 rape cases carry a conviction which leaves many rapist free and makes the women feel to blame.

Little Comets – Waiting In the Shadows In The Dead Of Night Lyrics 4 years ago
Many lyrics sites have the lyrics going "its like a fire" or "its like a wire"......but I think song meanings has it right with the above..., thats why they are my fave. Anyways, surprised there arent any comments yet on this song! This band is such a hidden gem....I bet they will be pretty popular soon. This album is gold.

I think the song is basically obvious and saying he is held down by someone he loves and he is sincere and will always be waiting for her. =love

The 1975 – So Far (It's Alright) Lyrics 4 years ago
Sounds to me its about just trying to have fun and do what he wants in life kinda like how his old man did. He is not wanting to get into committments esp with his girl. Just smoking and getting high and hangin out, is what he is about now. (sounds kinda fun)

The 1975 – Me Lyrics 5 years ago
Wow, what a great song:deep, poignant, and personal. The first thoughts I have is it may be about abortion?..he is flying back to be with her after he found out she is preg or is having or had the abortion. Im thinking after the fact. That is why the brother hates him and the mom has been through hell and her body has been through hell. He was pretty upset about it and just wanted to be with her......and maybe he was already upset/depressed because a family member of his is dying...

311 – Rock On Lyrics 6 years ago
Its about just living for today and not for tomorrow. The subject is partying/living an objectable lifestyle without a care in the world, abusing himself and it eventually will catch up with you is the message. Lots of times karma is a theme 311 uses and believes in and it comes in to play here. Nick said it best "when the day is done what you receive is the sum of what you put in from what you took out".

Rebelution – Closer I Get Lyrics 6 years ago
Such a laid back chill song that sounds so good. Having John Popper from Blues Traveler just makes it even better. Not sure what the song is about but perhaps it is about him becoming more and more of a star/celeb.....expectations and stress surmount and he just wants to live a simple life with his loved one.

Would love to see the Lutan Fyah lyrics.....cant seem to find them anywhere. Pretty hard to understand his verse but love it! Great song of course. Oh btw, seeing Reb TODAY in C-Bus!

Rebelution – Suffering Lyrics 6 years ago
haha a1ctsq, thats a good thought, and I like it.....but dont think thats what the songs intention was meant to be (although you can make it whatever you want to for you). I think DYSL hit it on the head with this. This song reminds me of all the unhappy/negaitve people I have to deal with/talk to. they are always so unhappy about something. Each one of us has the ability to change certain aspects in our life if we really wanted to (for the most part). He is basically just pointing that out in this song. Basically the song is saying you have the ability to change and to stop your suffering, you put yourself in this situation but have power to change it!

Peace,

Rebelution – Moonlight Lyrics 6 years ago
Like all their songs, this one is great. Such a nice mellow feeling to it. Sounds like this song may be a dream or maybe a daydream in which one is thinking about sharing it with another they love. Just being lost with someone you love, not worrying about time, just enjoying themselves.

311 – Trouble Lyrics 7 years ago
well said in the first two comments. i have been listening to 311 forever and love how i am growing and maturing as they (he) are. 311 is such a positive band and they encourage and uplift in their music. I would have to think anyone should love their music.

311 – Sunset in July Lyrics 7 years ago
I picture Nick writing this song while on a boat with some friends, cooler of beer and maybe a girl he is in love with and they are just having a natural good time hangin out, watching the sun set, appreciating each other, and life. A beautiful night.

This song is about how they used to party hard and although they don't get as crazy as they used to they have no regrets and it helped shape who they are. I'm sure they still party though! ;P

Islands – EOL Lyrics 7 years ago
I know this song is prob not to be taken literally and prob has some metaphoic meaning....but, I thought of two brothers in the midst of a tornado trapped inside a house and the one brother doesnt make it out. Its just funny because this song sounds so upbeat but has the saddest lyrics. I feel like the "lines" part of the song is talking about how two brothers and connected by destiny but now the line is broken because the one brother has "gone beyond". I am also surprised nobody has commented on this song. Such a good song and a good band!

Cold War Kids – Audience Lyrics 8 years ago
The lack of responses is very odd to me. Do people not realize how good CWK's are??? Dang. Anyhow, wasnt big on this song at first, but it really grows on you.....much like how you have to watch movies more than once to REALLY like them.

The Airborne Toxic Event – This Is Nowhere Lyrics 8 years ago
This song to me speaks of uncertainty, especailly with lifes purpose and where you are heading/where you currently are. The part about prophets makes me think that if even they mess up and are not sinless, then it is ok if we do from time to time.

Silver Lakes is a town/city by Hollywood and is a place with lots of modern architecture and where many indie bands are from and go. A "hip" place. Has a "bohemian" vibe.

Awesome band btw! Seeing them in two days in Columbus!

Band of Skulls – Cold Fame Lyrics 8 years ago
Great song. Suprised at no comments. Anyway, song about breaking up and being sad and alone and finding yourself, but at the same time being ok with it.

Cold flame in my brain, but it's okay cuz I kow its the best for me: I think this is about liking someone alot but knowing they dont like you but being ok with it because you are ok with being alone and can find yourself while being alone.

This is what I got from it. As always open for interpretation. Either way, great song.

Modest Mouse – Perpetual Motion Machine Lyrics 9 years ago
To me, this song means people want to experience life to the fullest, but eventually our time here expires (and we move on). Everyone wants to be a perpetual motion machine. He cant hide from death. (everyones talking bout their short list.....)

Modest Mouse – Autumn Beds Lyrics 9 years ago
I feel like this song has a very pessimistic tone/element to it. But dont get me wrong, I love it and all music MM makes. Sounds like Brock thinks everyone is always pointing the finger at him and judging him. No matter how much good he tries to do always the same unsatisfying results (show up ealry just to wait in line). Noone will just let him be a, they will always be criticizing. He is sick of listening to "them" and just wants to ignore them and do his own thing and find peace, but they make that hard to do hence "we wont be sleeping in our Autumn Beds."

submissions
Wild Beasts – Hooting & Howling Lyrics 9 years ago
Surprised no comments. Anyways this song is simple and sounds awesome. Love the way he sings it. Seems to be about him protecting his 'girls' and if someone gets in the way he kills/fights/etc. Him and his cahoots seem to be bored and look to trouble for excitement. I bet this song will catch on before too log and be on the radio. It is a hidden gem.

Band of Horses – Bass Song Lyrics 9 years ago
No clue what this is about.....seems to be bunch of random thoughts......judging by the minor sound of the song I would say its about maybe breaking up with a girl....maybe because he is on the road or something. He also seems to appreciate everything around him......

311 – Something Out of Nothing Lyrics 9 years ago
It is magic how everything just is. Also makes me think about how our bodies know how to do stuff without our brain even telling it to.....like our liver, stomach, kidneys, etc all know how to do stuff on their own. Magic. We are all one.

311 – Golden Sunlight Lyrics 9 years ago
This song seems to have a real "zen-like" quality about it. Reminds me of a book I just read by author Eckhart Tolle about Ego and Perceptions. It is called A New Earth>a good read, very mind opening. It is about getting past negative thoughts and staying positive and open....being free from the "pain body". Anyways it seems like 311 has always been extremly open-minded and this seems to be reflected in numerous songs......like the song "Its Alright" that just came out as well. All the songs I have heard so far off Uplifter sound really good....maybe that is why 311 is my favorite band. ;)

311 – It's Alright Lyrics 9 years ago
This is a good song because lots of people think they (themselves) are supposed to be more successful or further ahead inlife than they are......this song is saying you are doing fine where you are, and that is reassuring. Everything happends for a reason and as it should.......perhaps destiny cant be changed.

Bone Thugs-n-Harmony – P.O.D. Lyrics 9 years ago
It does actually mean passed over dosed. I actually wasted much time researching and that was the answer I found. It basically is saying get so high that you would over dose>then get even higher than that. It also doesnt make sense because you cant overdose on weed (in the practical sense).....unless they are doing stuff other than drinking and smoking.....

Peace! ....dont get POD'd....just get a good moderate buzz. :)

Band of Horses – Marry Song Lyrics 9 years ago
As a newly married man I love this song. I agree with most of the interpretations.

Weary my mind is to say the least
its been awful hard to just stand on my feet
I think I'll slow down if I am able
I won't drown in the ocean
For starving my place at the table

I think those stanzas are saying although marriage can be hard he is not going to just give up, he is going to man up and be the best he can.

Also, the wheelbarrow part> he says "lighten your load and see how I keeled the wheelbarrow I borrowed" Keeled means to capsize or dump over, so he is saying see how I got rid of my load that got heavy from other bad habits that he inherited.

Thats my take at least. ;)

Vampire Weekend – Cape Cod Kwassa Kwassa Lyrics 9 years ago
Greeneyes, I agree with you about everything. I think the Peter Gabriel thing is just her style of music and it feels unnateral to him. I am almost 30 and my other half doesnt understand the "good music" I like either, she listens to radio stuff>CHR. It's all good though, I like the fact that my music is my own special thing and I can just turn it on and kinda get away.....like reading a book but better. Anyways, great song and band.

Nirvana – Floyd the Barber Lyrics 9 years ago
At the beginning of the song it goes "Bell on door, clang, come on in".

The other hard to hear part may go "flee, plea, press against my lips" like he was trying to go and then trying to beg them to let him go and they press a finger across his lips or something to quiet him. "Pee Pee" no, Kurt wouldnt write that. Too juvenile and doesnt really make any sense. They are murderers not pedophile, perverted masochists. Thats my 2 cents. Ha, last post was 2004, I am a little late here for the argument looks like. Oh wel, cant win them all. So no one is going to read this huh? lol.

Cat could mean guy> "he is a cool cat". I hope it is not about a black guys dick cuz that would def ruin the entire song for me....when I hear the song I dont want to think about a girl giving some black dude head. But what else could they be talking about? >with a gift down below.....gagging, spitting.....wtf?

Beccamck26, props on the posting that video link. Good interview. You can tell what a cool dude he is. Good inside info too. Thanks.

This album just came out and is different than their other stuff....always takes awhile to get used to. I havent warmed up to all the songs yet but I amworking on it. I was the same way with Modest Mouses last album, didnt think it was that great at first listen, but then it transformed into greatness.

Kings of Leon – King of the Rodeo Lyrics 10 years ago
welldontpanic, I know it seems like it makes more sense for him to say "he saw the purity of shavin in the morning", but its not. If you listen closely, especially towards the end of that first line, you can clearly hear him say "and a morning.....or mourning".

Also he is def referring to the movie Withnail and I.

Weezer – My Name Is Jonas Lyrics 10 years ago
Chuckbeans, I dont know what the fuck you just said son!.... but I liked it, it was special.

My interp: he is young carefree, then has to grow up and goes out into the world and finds that it is not easy and he has a hard time (the tank is dry and the wheel is flat) his brother is having a hard time too and everybody else ,and it is all fucked up and not like it was in the good ol days when you relied on parents and what not. Life aint easy sometimes.

MGMT – Kids Lyrics 10 years ago
I like the connections made with the environment. I also love how "Dang son" connected it to The Giving Tree. Very interesting. However I think the fact the MGMT named the song "Kids" means this song has more to do with just being young and carefree and then growing old. And the lifecycles like CaitySheaBell said. Maybe greed comes into play too, thats why the line "take only what you need from it" and yes that part totally reminds me of the giving tree. Seems like in this song the kid maybe has kids of hi/her own and then grows old and just has faint memories. And yes it would be cool if the artists would comment about their own songs on this website. Then we wouldnt have to guess> ;)
