Tori Amos – Silent All These Years Lyrics 3 years ago
@ The Sundered One...

"Boy you best pray that I bleed real soon."
~ She's saying, you better hope that I have my period,
because if I don't, you know what that means... I'm pregnant.

"My scream got lost in a paper cup."
She's sitting in the office of whatever hospital she is at and is venting her rage into one of the water cups you get from the dispenser.

"Do you think there's a heaven where some screams have gone? I've got 25 bucks and a cracker do you think it's enough to get us there?" ~ I've always interpreted this to be about abortion, but I could be wrong. Seems like she's asking if there's a Heaven where the baby's screams would have gone, and she's only got a small amount of money and she can't really afford the abortion anyway... though the guy probably really wants her to have it.

"Let's hear what you think of me now but baby don't look up, the sky is falling." ~ This is right around all the lines that describe all the people in the room judging them. You're so good at criticizing me when we're alone and it's just us, but now you're in this mess with me, so let's see what you've got to say now that you're being dragged through the mud yourself.


Also, if you listen to Spark, lyrically it's almost an expansion of this....
"You say you don't want this, again and again, but you don't really mean it."
She says to herself "I don't want the baby" but she does.

She blames herself for the miscarriage.

Dir En Grey – The IIId Empire (English) Lyrics 3 years ago
"The Third Empire" hmmm.... the Third Reich?

Brainwash makes us sing a sorrowful song...
For the country to prosper.

This really makes me think of Nazi Germany, I knoew he probably meant it more for Japan, but perhaps that is the point of the name play... to draw parallels.

Tori Amos – Father's Son Lyrics 3 years ago
I think the "cartoons" are the religious figures... Jesus and Allah are like He-Man and Skeletor. In another 2000 years, who knows, maybe they will be? Cartoons are fiction, so are the Bible and the Koran... yet people choose these things, these blood-soaked myths over real tangible things like science, medicine, logic.

Ryuichi Sakamoto – Forbidden Colours (for the film Merry Christmas, Mr. Lawrence) Lyrics 3 years ago
Okay, so the movie that this song is from is called "Merry Christmas Mr. Lawrence." Or FURYO in Japan, which is the Japanese word for "Prisioner of War." -- http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Merry_Christmas,_Mr._Lawrence

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7176RazMVR8

The film centers around POW's in WW2 Japan. In the opening scenes, two soldiers are brought out in front of an execution squad. The two soldiers had a homosexual relationship and are obviously emotionally involved, but one claims that it was rape to get out of the shame. The "perpetrator" is commanded to perform commit suicide by sword, the "victim" gets to live.

Later the film focuses on the unlikely relationship between Jack Celliers and Captain Yanoi (played by Ryuichi Sakamoto of the band Yellow Magic Orchestra and who performs the song with David Sylvian) develops his own sort of homo-emotional feelings for Celliers.

Yanoi goes easy on Celliers and shows humanity and compassion to him after being told about the western tradition of Christmas, he says "Merry Christmas Mr. Lawrence" after sparing him from punishment for one of his camp mates having a radio.

The title "Forbidden Colours" is also shared by a novel from the 50's written by Yukio Mishima, the Japanese name for the book "kinjiki" is a euphemism for homosexuality and it is the book's primary topic.

The lyrics of the song itself, to me, describe someone who is going through an internal turmoil - their faith vs. their feelings and not being able to understand or deal with it. "The blood of Christ, or the beat of my heart?" - My faith, or my love for this person? - "Learning to cope with feelings aroused in me, my hands in the soil - buried inside myself." This person is tilling the dirt of their soul so to speak, trying to dig out this part of them that they've been taught is wrong and unnatural. "I`ll go walking in circles while doubting the very ground beneath me -Trying to show unquestioning faith in everything," - the character is so wracked with guilt and confusion and internalized fear that they spaz out and forget where they are or what they're doing. The kind of thing somebody hopelessly in love does. But despite all this, they still put on the facade that everything is "normal."

And yes, Utada Hikaru _SAMPLED_ this song and kept the original title, however her version has nothing to do with the subject of the original. Hers is more of a "have fun and party" song.

Marilyn Manson – Wormboy Lyrics 4 years ago
"When will realize you're already there?"

Christians spend all their time being so afraid of death and going to Hell and being concerned for other people's "salvation" (just another excuse to try and force other people into their cult through fear tactics and emotional manipulation) that they make wherever they are into Hell. You're so afraid of it, but you're already creating it where you are by being a total cunt to everybody around you.

"So watered down, your feelings have turned to mud."

They put on a fake face of pretend acceptance around the people they don't actually accept. They dilute themselves, their lives, everything they do. They don't -live- because they're too afraid to. To borrow a line from Slayer... "Compelled to live their sheltered lives." But rage, anger, swearing, enjoying our baser urges, that's all a part of being human. Christians are basically neutered dogs.


"Love everybody" is destroying the value of "All hate has got me nowhere."

What everyone else has said... all that "Jesus loved everybody so you should too" stuff is their -fake- love. They don't love people for who they are, and they don't have the balls to come right out and say their "love" is actually hate. The only ones who seem to are Fred Phelps and Westboro Baptist Church. They may be a bunch of pompous douche-bags, but at least they're honest and sincere. They -still- try to pass off their bigotry as being "out of concern for people's souls." Hate is a natural experience of human life, same as getting hurt, getting betrayed, failing at ones goals. It's what makes us who we are, but it's through those experiences that we come to see what is helpful and what is harmful. If you spend all your time trying to "fake love" everyone from some plateau of piety, you never try and analyze what it is that causes you to feel the hate you know you feel in secret, beneath all the cellophane smiles and empty platitudes.


"I know I'm slipping, I know I'm slipping, I know I'm slipping away."

The character is losing himself to the group-think of the flock, he liked it because it was comforting to feel like part of something, but he was just another cog in the machine. While he was "in" he sacrificed his personality. It's easy to succumb to a cult. Just look at the WBC kids... then look at some of the ones that left. They weren't people when they were in there, they were just robots parroting everything Fred and their equally brainwashed parents wanted them to. The "real" them slipped away and gave way to the "cult" them. The one that says a bunch of trash they don't really mean, but say to feel like they're "in" with the group.


"Oh no, it is everything they said it was..."

This, in my mind, is saying "Oh no, Heaven is everything they described it as... and God damn is it ever boring." Alternately it could be from an outside person urging him to drop out of the flock. Like, they tried to warn him that it was all bullshit, and he's only now coming to realize it.

"Oh no, I am everything they said I was."

The "Oh no" could almost kinda be sarcastic... "Ohhhh noeeeez" I'm all the things they said about me. Sorta like Eminem's "I am whatever you say I am." Like, may as well just accept it, whatever it is, because people are gunna talk smack no matter what you do.


"When you you get to heaven, you will wish you were in hell."

Takes me back to some stuff Bill Hicks would say about Heaven and Hell and Satan in music. "If it's a choice between eternal Hell and good tunes and eternal Heaven and New Kids On The Block, I'm gunna be surfin' on the lake of fire rockin' out, high-fiving Satan every time I pass."

And "At least that's where all my favorite rock stars will be."

The character is telling the listener the same... "Heaven is full of boring people, who spent their entire existence trying to be boring so they could get the 'reward' of going to a boring place to be around other people just as boring as they are. You'll "wish you were in Hell" because at least there, it's not such a drab scene. Also it kinda reminds me of a Robot Chicken skit... (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZSE50aIgB5c) would you really want to go to a Heaven that let in people like Adolph Hitler, John Wayne Gacy, Jeffrey Dahmer or.... "Uncle Steve?" - In other words, Heaven could have people in it that you might not be so happy to see.


"When will you realize, you're already here?"
"You'll thank us now, that you have crossed over."

Christians are trying to make "Heaven on Earth"
by forcing their beliefs and morals on everyone around them.
The "thank" part is smug... "You'll be sooooo happy now that
you've come to see things -our- way."


"Don't pick the scabs or you will never heal."

It's sort of like a mother telling their child this, but it's coming from the religious automatons as kinda of a condescension. "Hey, you better listen to us and wo what we say, or you won't get "better!" - I imagine this being the attitude of someone at one of those "reparative therapy" camps. (see South Park episode "Cartman Sucks.")


"The world shudders as the worm gets its wings."

The way I see this is like... what if Manson pulled an Alice Cooper and decided to repent of all his former acts and beliefs and went churchie? (what I would see as being a total 180, and a SELL OUT move).

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/christina-patterson/interview-with-alice-cooper_b_1973528.html

People said all kinds of things and made up all kinds of rumors about Alice Cooper, same as they did to Manson, why then would he turn around and side with the people who had so much scorn for him? It's like a black person shacking up with the KKK. I'm sure quite a few uptight churchies still looked at Alice with disgust even with the news that he'd converted and joined their cult. People -always- judge, even when they pretend they don't.


"Then I got my wings and I never even knew it,
when I was a worm, thought I wouldn't get through it..."


This line seems to have more of a caterpillar to butterfly slant to it. He got his 'wings' - his "approval" from on high, and didn't even know... so God must have -some- kind of sense of humor to let a guy like him past the pearly gates. But when he was a "worm," a human stuck down here on terra firma, he didn't think he would be able to keep surviving, because there are so many predators that had access to him.

Look up a translation for "Macabre" by Dir en grey... that also has a bit more of a larva to flying insect slant.

Macklemore – Same Love Lyrics 5 years ago
I think every gay and lesbian should get they license to carry, cuz walkin' around in a world where niggaz will jump you and hicks will Bible thump you is just dumb and unnecessary, if we got the right to protect ourselves we should use it, in the face of people who twist it and use it to be abusive.

We ain't never gunna have peace or genuine respect until we pop a cap inna basher or slice a bigot's neck. It's war, we're constantly innit, in the middle of a world that labels us as sinners and degenerates, dehumanized soul-less objects - easy to manipulate, easier to kill - thinkin' that gay blood turns into AIDS blood as soon as it's been spilled. Thinkin' that a faggot is weak and woman-like, while a dyke is man strong. Like fags don't come in buff packages or is too afraid to aim a sawed-off. I wanna squash these stereotype fallacies, Westboro Baptists say we "beasts" I wanna show 'em just how beast we can be when we pushed to our mental extremities. Grab that exacto and scoop the eyeballs out the eyeholes out the eye holes of these conservative Christian assholes.

Duran Duran – Someone Else Not Me Lyrics 5 years ago
I'll probably catch flack for this, but the theme of this song really reminds me alot of Deathcab For Cutie's "Someday You Will Be Loved." Either way, I think this is a really great and somber song, even though the music itself is a tad deceptive.

"When love is real,
Like a flower loves a bee."

It's like that poem by Richard Bach, "If you love something, let it go."


"Now while the beat is slow
Here in your arms I sway
Now that the light is low
There's something I want to say."

This part, to me, conjures up a scene of a highschool dance during a slow song in the arms of a "puppy" love. He's in this really intimate embrace with her, and has to drop the bomb.


"I guess you've known it for a while
Did I mean trouble?"
(other sites say "But" I mean trouble)

I remember the phrase "He/she means trouble" usually means they're serious,
if it's "But" then it's the narrator saying "This isn't a joke, I mean this."

If it's "Did I" then the girl is asking herself if he was really genuine with her before, and
she must've known for a while that he was just leading her on, through word of mouth through friends.

"I only want to see you smile,
And I burst this bubble."

He did the opposite of making her smile and has dashed her hopes and made her feel quite low.


"The hardest thing is to let go."

It's either hard for the narrator, because he has genuine feelings,
or it's hard for the girl because she's already infatuated and attached.


"Then I know you're meant to give yourself to someone else not me."
Someday you will be loved...


"And I could carry on with you
Does that sound crazy?"

I could try, keep up appearances, fake it.


"I think you feel the same way too,
And you can't face it."

Deep down she knows he's right, but she's still blinded by infatuation, which will eventually fade.


"Can you let go?
Cuz that's love that's real."

Real love is allowing the other person their freedom, freedom to choose.
You could tie them down, play the pity card, but that's no foundation for a relationship.

R.E.M. – Man On The Moon Lyrics 6 years ago
Andy was a troll, before the internet even existed to have trolls on it. I'm not saying this as a diss to the man, I'm saying it because everything he did was a farce, to push people's buttons, and even when he was trying to act hurt and upset, it was all still kayfabe (look it up). I loved this song, as I remember having heard it on the radio during the early days of Comedy Central (back in the days they had stuff like the original MST3K with Joel, The Young Ones, Kids in The Hall) and in-between shows they'd play the documentary "I'm From Hollywood," so right away I knew the song was about Andy and I associated it with that piece.

Anyways, I'll try to interpret the bits of the song I ''get'' :


**Mott the Hoople and the game of life. Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah.**

Not sure about Mott The Hoople (looked them up, it's a glam band that was buddies with David Bowie, and Bowie himself did stage personae like Ziggy Stardust and the Thin White Duke and such - so that could kinda be linked with Andy's putting himself deep into a character). By the "Game of Life" I think they mean the Milton Bradley game.


**Mister Fred Blassie in a breakfast mess. Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah.**
Andy and 'Classy' Fred Blassie were friends and were in an indie film
together called "My Breakfast With Blassie." It's pretty much Andy
trolling the viewer and down-talking non-city dwellers and talking
about events that had happened, like the slapping incident on Letterman.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iFpdryhlTJc


Monopoly, twenty one, checkers, and chess. Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah.
Let's play Twister, let's play Risk. Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah.
See you heaven if you make the list. Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah.

These are all games where you're trying to outspart and out-perform
an opponent, and I think it's also insinuating that all of Andy's
bizarre actions and rants were just part of 'the game' he created.
The last bit, I think is Stipe fantasizing about hanging out with
Andy in the after-life.


**Now, Andy did you hear about this one?**
A line anybody says when they're about to tell a joke,
also it could kinda be like "Did you hear this theory
people have about you???"

**Tell me, are you locked in the punch?**
It's like a friend of Andy in the biz asking
"Are you locked in the punchline that is the
character you've gotten so deep into?"


**Andy are you goofing on Elvis? Hey, baby are we losing touch?**
Andy's routines usually consisted of him doing something really
bizarre, or deliberately un-amusing and then he'd break out the
Elvis bit and it was like "I sucked then, but what about now?"
The losing touch bit could be about him losing touch with the
real world, or losing touch with a friend or co-star because
of all the crazy stuff he was doing for the sake of comedy.


**If you believed they put a man on the moon. Man on the moon.**
Some conspiracy theorists think the moon landing was staged in
a sound studio, that we did it to ''beat'' the Russians in the
Space Race. It's like saying "If you believe what Andy's doing
is for real, then you'd believe pretty much anything.

**If you believed there's nothing up his sleeve, then nothing is cool.**
I think this one is like saying "If you think the man is 100% serious,
that this -isn't- all just "taking the piss," so to speak, and you
take everything he's ever said or done as the true Andy Kaufmann,
then it's all in vain, you don't get it... but then, I thought
that was kind of the point, to make people believe it really
was him when he was in the ring or on TV.


**Moses went walking with the staff of wood. Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah.**
**Newton got beaned by the apple good. Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah.**
**Egypt was troubled by the horrible Asp. Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah.**
**Mister Charles Darwin had the gall to ask. Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah.**

Not sure about the Moses bit, might have something to do with the story about
the story where God commands him to make a "brass serpent" that would revive
anyone who had died from a snake bite.

As for the rest, it seems to be listing off people who made big discoveries
or took big chances and because of that, changed the world. Andy was a
pioneer and he would risk anything, even himself, for the sake of comedy,
or at least riling people up and using their venom to maintain the
misogynist ''villain'' persona he had made for himself.


**Hey, baby Are you having fun?**
Andy always talked about having fun, like it was
the only reason he did anything ever at all.
In the docu, he says after getting whooped
by Lawler, he says "I was just doing this
for fun, I always thought it was all fake."


**Here's a little agit for the never-believer. Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah.**
Agit means to shake up (hence the word, agitate), so here's something
to shake up even the most hard to fool person.

**Here's a little ghost for the offering. Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah.**
I'm not sure about the meaning of the phrase above, but there's
an urban legend that Andy's ghost haunts the Comedy Store in L.A.


**Here's a truck stop instead of Saint Peter's.**
You were expecting something, but got something else
totally out of left field.

**Mister Andy Kaufman's gone wrestling. Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah.**
A comedian and television actor makes a totally unexpected,
unexplainable potentially career destroying venture into
a field he has, as Lawler often put it, "no business
being in," it made no sense but that just may have
been the point and part of the joke.

The Goo Goo Dolls – Black Balloon Lyrics 6 years ago
Whenever I head the line "scatter like ice from the spoon" I never thought about drugs being burned up in a spoon. I always thought of how when I was little, I'd hold an ice cube in my hand and smack it with the bottom of a spoon to get crushed ice and how it never really was an effective method, since it'd fly off in every direction and just make a big melty watery mess.

And I remember hearing this song all the time when I was in High School, and then I heard it in this really great episode of Cold Case:

http://www.movpod.in/jg7vqcy7byp9
http://coldcase.wikia.com/wiki/That_Woman

The drug reference doesn't match with the story, but some of the ways the song can be interpreted do. The girl is used by jocks only concerned with conquest and she's the "school slut," made to feel like a joke and a whore to everyone even though she's beautiful and has a good personality. She winds up becoming part of a school Youth Group focused on abstinence.

She's the outspoken one of the bunch who doesn't fully buy into all the self-repressive, hyper judgemental b.s. and tries to encourage the others to just live their lives and be themselves (she tries to out a gay in a very very deep denial), eventually she meets a rather unfortunate fate at the hands of those she trusted and all because they were so paranoid and scared of their own secrets being discovered.

Limp Bizkit – Jump Around (House Of Pain cover) Lyrics 6 years ago
I used to listen the cassette single of House of Pain's Jump Around with my unc in his Pontiac Fiero back in the mid 90's (used to scavenge old tapes outta the cars when we were walking around the auto yard my dad worked at), I heard the original of this track on repeat probably about a million times and I never heard it say "Amps it are junking" that doesn't even make grammatical sense as a sentence even for rap. I've always heard it as "Amps in the trunk - and I got more rhymes than there's cops at a 'Duncan Donuts' shop. And it's "just like the Prodigal Son (see Parable of The Lost Son) I've returned..." not "Radical Son." You might say "Oh, Durst made changes to the lyrics." But I've listened to both the original and this cover and there reslly aren't any other than the Korn shout out and when he says "Thieves with the funk flow - someone's talking junk yo" in the 11th line.

Alice Cooper – Love's A Loaded Gun Lyrics 6 years ago
I think it's kinda got that "be wary of stds" message, sorta in the same vein as but a little more subtle than Coolio's "Too Hot." The narrator is in love with a prostitute.


"You take -them- home into your bedroom. You had another busy day."

To me that says this is "work" for her.


"Red lights, stop and go."

The whole red light thing is also associated with prostitution...
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Red-light_district


"You looked into the eyes of -men- above you,
I was the one who really tried to love you."


She isn't doing this just because she's a cheater,
it's her occupation. And Alice's character fell in love with her.


"I tried to look the other way and fake it."


He's tried to act like he doesn't know, or that he doesn't care.



"One down, one to go, just another bullet in the chamber.
Sometimes love's a loaded gun."


It could be taken with two meaning:

Either Alice's character is systematically killing off all the
men that his girl has had sex with (hence the "Squad Car" bit) OR,
he's saying they're each bullets in the chamber in a very risky
game of sexual Russian Roulette that could wind up infecting her.


"Somebody saw you at the station
You had your suitcase in your hand
You didn't give no information
You walked off with another man."

She's either walking off with the person she's been
having an affair with, OR she's walking off with a client.

Bad Meets Evil – A Kiss Lyrics 6 years ago
@HockeyPlayer1 - "one night stand" is a popular slang phrase meaning to invite someone over for the night expressly for the purpose of engaging in coitus, and then after the completion of the act and the morning following having "slept with" the woman, never seeing or speaking to her again. Mr. Mathers says "He's so about a one night stand, his bedroom has two lamps and only one ''nightstand.'' Picture two lamps in Mr. Mather's bedroom and one falling to the floor and breaking because he only has "one night stand." It's a wordplay thing, like "I'ma put this shit in park, like dog shit," here he's talking about putting his vehicle's transmission into "park," but is also making a joke about canine feces being common in recreational areas.

"CIVIL RIGHTS AREN'T A RACE ISSUE. THEY'RE A HUMAN ISSUE."
.
.
.
Laura Bush, wife of former U.S. president George Bush went on Larry King Live to discuss her differences of opinion with her husband about issues like Gay Marriage, saying that it eventually will come about anyway thanks to "generational" shifts of opinion. Mrs. Bush is quite right, and we have had such shifts before. Every generation has had its socially accepted ignorances and intolerances, but something always comes along to change the old way of thinking.
.
.
.
We used to have segregated schools, until the landmark cases, Brown v. Board of Education (1955) and Alexander v. Holmes County Board of Education (1969). We used to have anti-miscegenation laws such as the Racial Integrity Act of 1924, which made sex or marriage between whites and non-whites a felony offense, punishable by up to five years of prison time. Loving vs. Virginia, a 1967 case involving a white man (Richard Perry Loving) and a black woman (Mildred Delores Jeter) who had married in the District of Columbia and returned to Virginia, where police invaded their home and arrested them for violation of the interracial marriage ban, changed public opinion and lead to the Racial Integrity Act being overturned and declared unconstitutional.
.
.
.
Much like today's Anti-Homosexual Movement, proponents of Segregation and Anti-Miscegenation laws used religion as the justification for their views, parroting quotes like this one from Johann Friedrich Blumenbach's archaic 18th-century interpretation of race: "Almighty God created the races white, black, yellow, malay and red, and he placed them on separate continents. And but for the interference with his arrangement there would be no cause for such marriages. The fact that he separated the races shows that he did not intend for the races to mix."

"God Demands Segregation" was the rally cry of Mrs. B.J. Gaillot Jr., president of a pro-segregation group named "Save Our Nation Inc." Gaillot was angered when the archbishop of her church, Joseph Francis Rummel, had ordered full desegregation of New Orleans parochial schools. Her response to this was loud picketing and a challenge to those who disagreed with her to "Show me in the the Bible where I am wrong." (1962 Time Magazine Article "Education: Squeeze in New Orleans" - www.time.com/time/magazine/article/0,9171,827285,00.html)
.
.
.
Pastor Bertrand L. Comparet, a member of the Christian Identity Movement and founder of "Your Heritage Ministries" in the 1950's, echoes Mrs. Gaillot's racist mantra in his books and pamphlets associating blacks with the "Satanic Canaanite Seed Line" from the commonly held belief that Canaan and his extended lineage were cursed with blackness and destined to be the "servants of servants" after his father Ham had walked in on the drunk and naked Noah in Genesis Chapter 9 verses 20-25, along with other lengthy Bible verse interpretations emphasizing God's extreme disapproval of "racial mongrelization."

There are also verses in the Bible which seem to indicate that God fully condones slavery:
.
.
.
Leviticus Chapter 25, verses 44-46 "Both thy bondmen, and thy bondmaids, which thou shalt have, shall be of the heathen that are round about you; of them shall ye buy bondmen and bondmaids. Moreover of the children of the strangers that do sojourn among you, of them shall ye buy, and of their families that are with you, which they begat in your land: and they shall be your possession. And ye shall take them as an inheritance for your children after you, to inherit them for a possession; they shall be your bondmen for ever : But over your brethren the children of Israel, ye shall not rule one over another with rigor [harshness, stiffness, inflexibility]."
.
.
.
Exodus Chapter 21, verses 20-21: "And if a man smite his manservant, or maidservant, with a rod, and he (or she) die under his hand; he shall be punished. Notwithstanding, if he (or she) continue a day or two, he shall not be punished, for he (or she) is his money.

Exodus Chapter 21, verse 32: "If an ox gore a manservant or maidservant; he [the owner of the ox] shall give unto their master thirty shekels of silver and the ox shall be stoned."

Luke Chapter 12, verse 47-48: "And that servant, which knew his master's will, and did not prepare himself, neither did according to his will, shall be beaten with many stripes. But he that knew not, and did commit things worthy of stripes, shall be beaten with few stripes."

1st Peter, Chapter 2 verse 18: "Servants, be subject to your masters with all fear, not only to the good and gentle, but also to the fro-ward [unjust, cross, contrary, unreasonable].

Exodus Chapter 21, verses 2-6: "If thou buy an Hebrew servant, six years he shall serve: and in the seventh he shall go out free for nothing. If he came in by himself, he shall go out by himself: if he were married, then his wife shall go out with him. If his master have given him a wife, and she have born him sons or daughters; the wife and her children shall be her master's, and he shall go out by himself. And if the servant shall plainly say, I love my master, my wife, and my children; I will not go out free: Then his master shall bring him unto the judges; he shall also bring him to the door, or unto the door post; and his master shall bore his ear through with an aul; and he shall serve him for ever.

With verses like these, and the historically documented use of Christianity as justification for slavery, segregation and lingering racist attitudes, its baffling and ironic that so many African Americans are Christian, atleast 85%, according to a 2007 Pew Forum survey - (en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Religion_in_the_United_States#Ethnicity). What's even more ironic is the belief that those who fought for Civil Rights, like Martin Luther King Jr., would have been offended by the parallels between the two movements being made today by supporters of the Marriage Equality Movement.
.
.
.
Barb Davis White, a member of the "Tea Party" movement and Republican candidate for Minnesota’s 5th Congressional District, made a rather controversial remark during a Minnesota hearing contemplating the legalization of same-sex marriage in the state; “Rosa Parks did not move to the front of the bus to support sodomy." White also accused homosexuals of trying to "hijack" the Civil Rights Movement. (minnesotaindependent.com/55645/barb-davis-white-gay-marriage-rosa-parks)
.
.
.
The Westboro Baptist Church also protested outside the funeral of Coretta Scott King (Martin Luther King Jr.'s widow) with signs reading "No Fags In King's Dreams." Despite a difference of opinion with many other religious blacks, including her own daughter Bernice King, Coretta still advocated for equal rights for gays right up to her death:
.
.
"I still hear people say that I should not be talking about the rights of lesbian and gay people. But I hasten to remind them that Martin Luther King Jr. said, 'Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.' I appeal to everyone who believes in Martin Luther King Jr.'s dream, to make room at the table of brotherhood and sisterhood for lesbian and gay people."
.
.
.
It's also a safe bet that many Black Christians, young or old, have probably never heard of Bayard Rustin.

Rustin was a key organizer of 1963 March on Washington, during which King made the infamous "I Have a Dream" speech. He brought Gandhi’s non-violent protest techniques to the Civil Rights movement, and helped mold Martin Luther King, Jr. into an international symbol of peace and nonviolence. Being a black homosexual and former member of the American Communist Party made him the target of investigation by a then corrupt FBI looking for any means necessary to derail the movement. Considered a political liability to the cause, Rustin was relegated to a "behind-the-scenes" position.

I've heard some blacks (and those looking to appeal to potential black friends of equal closed-mindedness) say things like: "Being Gay isn't like being black," and "Gays never had to endure the things blacks went through." The violence perpetrated against homosexuals has been no less gruesome and no less motivated by the individual's own personal hatred than the violence committed against blacks by any White Supremacist / Christian Identity group active in the past or in the present.
.
.
.
One thing gays do have is stealth. Homosexuality is not bound to a specific gender, race, religion or political affiliation and unless the person in question has an incredibly effeminate voice and covers themselves in rainbow flag pins and pink triangles, it's much easier to tell what ethnicity that person is than what sexual orientation they are. It's this ability to blend in with the "normal people" that breeds paranoid suspicion and why the reaction to a friend, school-mate, co-worker, fellow-serviceman/woman, fellow church-member, teacher, or family member's "outing," is usually one of shock and often ends with either violence or total disassociation from the person in order to avoid accusations of being gay themselves.
.
.
.
Just as friends of blacks were taunted with words like "nigger-lover," associates of gays are called "fag-lovers" by their less open-minded peers... but you don't have to be someone's "lover" to want to see them live a life free of violent persecution and you don't have to be a "fag" to support another person's constitutional right to love whomever they please.

There are also the stigmas and propagandist myths like "All homosexuals have AIDS," or the fear that allowing marriage rights and protections for gays will open the political floodgates for similar laws to protect and give rights to paedophiles, bestiophiles and cousin-humping hillbillies.

And thanks in part to many "studies" done by anti-gay activist there is also the commonly held belief that homosexuals shouldn't be allowed to take care of or be around children because they might try to "recruit" them.
(www.boxturtlebulletin.com/Articles/000,002.htm)

Such myths and generalizations are as ridiculous as someone saying "All blacks are thieving, drug-peddling, white girl-raping savages!" The goal is also the same, to spread prejudice and maintain an easy scapegoat.
.
.
.
In the beginning I mentioned the case of Loving v. Virgnia, which struck down laws criminalizing and penalizing interracial intercourse and marriage in 1967. But it wasn't until 2003's Lawrence v. Texas, a case in which 55 year old John Geddes Lawrence and 31 year old Tyron Garner were burst in upon and by a police officer arriving on the scene in response to a false "weapons disturbance" call made by neighbor Robert Royce Eubanks, that Anti-Sodomy Laws met a similar widespread invalidation and were ruled as "unconstitutional" and a "violation of privacy."
.
.
Immediately prior to that ruling, 13 states still had some form of law against sodomy (even for heterosexual sodomy) and severity of the punishment varied in each state. The lingering presence of such laws in the books was often cited as justification for violence against gays. In Michigan, the penalty was a maximum of 15 years and repeat offenders got life. In Massachusetts, persons engaging in same-sex fellatio could get 5 years of jail time, and persons engaging in anal sex could get up to 20. In Idaho, the convicted could theoretically be sentenced to life imprisonment. Although selectively enforced, the lingering presence of such laws in the statute books was often cited as justification for anti-gay violence.
(en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sodomy_laws_in_the_United_States, thetaskforce.org/issues/nondiscrimination/sodomy).

The third president of the United States and author of the Declaration of Independence, Thomas Jefferson, uttered some of my favorite quotes like "Christianity is the most perverted system ever shone upon man," and "Religions are all alike -- founded upon fables and mythologies," yet this same Jefferson also proposed Amendment VIII in 1778 which contained the following decree: "Whosoever shall be guilty of Rape, Polygamy, or Sodomy with man or woman shall be punished, if a man, by castration, if a woman, by cutting thro' the cartilage of her nose a hole of one half inch diameter at the least."
.
.
I'm rather perplexed as to how a woman might sodomize a man in the 1700's, but perhaps she had some kind of wooden strap on dildo, or maybe she just used her finger? The proposed amendment was intended by Jefferson as a liberalized, relaxed version of the sodomy laws already in effect in Virginia at the time. Jefferson's suggested amendment was rejected by the Virginia Legislature, which continued to prescribe death as the maximum penalty.
.
.
.
Another of my favorite quotes from Jefferson is "The Christian God is a being of terrific character - cruel, vindictive, capricious, and unjust" and anyone who actually reads The Bible can see the truth of this statement. The Bible is a compilation of 66 books written by different authors, the King James version has roughly 600 pages in it. Nestled among the goodie-two-shoes parts like "thou shalt not kill" and "thou shalt not steal" are just as many verses that would seem absurd and barbaric in the eyes of today's society.
.
.
.
When I was a child in Sunday school I remember hearing the story in Genesis Chapter 22, verses 1-18, where Abraham was commanded to sacrifice his son Isaac. This story doesn't seem quite as macabre to Christians, as they see it as God just testing Abe's devotion to him since in the end an angel stopped him before anything really bad could happen. A lesser known story is that of Judges Chapter 11 verses 29-40:
.
.
"And Jephthah vowed a vow unto the LORD, and said, If thou shalt without fail deliver the children of Ammon into mine hands, then it shall be, that whatsoever cometh forth of the doors of my house to meet me, when I return in peace from the children of Ammon, shall surely be the LORD's, and I will offer it up for a burnt offering." Funny thing that the first thing to come out from his home was his daughter... his only child.
.
.
"And it came to pass, when he saw her, that he wrent his clothes, and said, Alas, my daughter! thou hast brought me very low, and thou art one of them that trouble me: for I have opened my mouth unto the LORD, and I cannot go back. And she said unto him, My father, if thou hast opened thy mouth unto the LORD, do to me according to that which hath proceeded out of thy mouth; forasmuch as the LORD hath taken vengeance for thee of thine enemies, even of the children of Ammon. And she said unto her father, Let this thing be done for me: let me alone two months, that I may go up and down upon the mountains, and bewail my virginity, I and my fellows. And he said, Go. And he sent her away for two months: and she went with her companions, and bewailed her virginity upon the mountains. And it came to pass at the end of two months, that she returned unto her father, who did with her according to his vow which he had vowed: and she knew no man."
.
.
.
In today's society, men like Abraham and Jepthah would be sent to jail and their children put in foster care.
.
.

Some Christians think Islamic Fundamentalists are the real genocidal maniacs and perpetrators of religious intolerance, but Deuteronomy Chapter 13, verses 13-19 says "If you find out some people living in one of the towns God has 'given' to you are worshiping other gods, you should set every person, young or old, and every beast and all the property on fire and never allow that town to be rebuilt." Joshua Chapter 7 verse 15 prescribes a similar fate for anyone attempting to take spoils from the condemned town: "And it shall be, that he that is taken with the accursed thing shall be burnt with fire, he and all that he hath: because he hath transgressed the covenant of the LORD, and because he hath wrought folly in Israel."
.
.

Here's some lovely verses about rape...

Deuteronomy Chapter 22, verses 28-29: If a man find a damsel that is a virgin, which is not betrothed, and lay hold on her, and lie with her, and they be found; Then the man that lay with her shall give unto the damsel's father fifty shekels of silver, and she shall be his wife; because he hath humbled her, he may not put her away all his days.

Deuteronomy Chapter 22, verses 23-24: If a damsel that is a virgin be betrothed unto an husband, and a man find her in the city, and lie with her; Then ye shall bring them both out unto the gate of that city, and ye shall stone them with stones that they die; the damsel, because she cried not, being in the city; and the man, because he hath humbled his neighbour's wife: so thou shalt put away evil from among you.

Deuteronomy Chapter 22, verses 20-21: "If the tokens of virginity be not found for the damsel: Then they shall bring the damsel to the door of her father's house, and the men of her city shall stone her with stones that she die."

Deuteronomy Chapter 21, verses 10-14: "When thou goest forth to war against thine enemies, and the LORD thy God hath delivered them into thine hands, and thou hast taken them captive, and seest among the captives a beautiful woman, and hast a desire unto her, that thou wouldest have her to thy wife; Then thou shalt bring her home to thine house, and she shall shave her head, and pare her nails; and she shall put the raiment of her captivity from off her, and shall remain in thine house, and bewail her father and her mother a full month: and after that thou shalt go in unto her, and be her husband, and she shall be thy wife. And it shall be, if thou have no delight in her, then thou shalt let her go whither she will; but thou shalt not sell her at all for money, thou shalt not make merchandise of her, because thou hast humbled her."
.
.
.
So a proper punishment for a rapist is having to pay a fine to the father of the victim, and permanent marriage to the girl he raped. (sounds more like a punishment for the girl than it is for the guy) And if a woman being raped doesn't scream loud enough for someone to rush to her aid, then she must be enjoying it. And if a man takes a female captive as his wife, he can start "having relations" with her after she's done mourning her murdered relatives. Sure makes me glad we live in a logical society that doesn't base -ALL- its legislation and laws on a book like this.
.
.
.
And of course the common rebuttal from the average Christian is "Old Testament shit is Old..." and "Jesus dying on the cross negated all that stuff and we just follow the New Testament now." But Matthew 5:18-19 seems to indicate that the OT is not null and void.

"For truly, I say to you, till heaven and earth pass away, not an iota, not a dot, will pass from the law until all is accomplished. Whoever then relaxes one of the least of these commandments and teaches men so, shall be called least in the kingdom of heaven."

As does Luke 16:17: "It is easier for Heaven and Earth to pass away than for the smallest part of the letter of the law to become invalid."

And in Matthew 15:4-7, when Jesus is chastised by the Pharisees for not washing his hands before eating, he chastises them for not following Leviticus 20:9 which commands death to anyone who curses their mother or father.
.
.
.
Also people say that the Bible is totally up to personal interpretation, well that too is also bullshit, as it says in 2 Peter 20-21 "Know this first of all, that there is no prophecy of scripture that is a matter of personal interpretation, for no prophecy ever came through human will; but rather human beings moved by the holy Spirit spoke under the influence of God."
.
.
.
So everything in the O.T., even the stuff people write off as "mosaic law" like the condemning of eating shrimp and other finless, scaleless sea creatures (Leviticus 11:10), not crossbreeding cattle, making clothes of mixed fibers, and planting mixed crops in a field (Leviticus 19:19) along with all the other aforementioned sick shit, is still in effect. Sure, someday the verses about killing gay people with rocks will be swept under the rug like the ones about slavery or barring women from preaching and teaching (1 Corinthians 14:34, 1 Timothy 2:12) and gays in church will be just as commonplace, but even at that time I will still have as much desire to be a part of Christianity as a Jew would want to be a part of the Third Reich, or an African American would want to be in the Klan. Keep your God, he sounds like a humongous douche anyway.

Rush – Faithless Lyrics 7 years ago
I wish there was more music like this...atheistic, without being antagonistic. To me this is just as good as any of the heavier and louder anti-religious songs out there. The meaning of the song is pretty blatant, but the guy isn't screaming out loud "Eff you, xtians!" and "Hail satan, 666!" Dude is just saying that even though he doesn't believe in religion, he still believes in the humanity of people. And he will "quietly resist" all the psychopath preachers like Rev. Phelps and the thousands of others trying to knock him off course "by sermons or by force."

"Fools and thieves are well disguised - in the temple and marketplace." Religion nowadays is just another cash crop commodity and a way to manipulate others, there are fools who preach hate, and there are thieves who want to make you throw away your years on anger and fear. The temple and marketplace line makes me think of John 2:13-16, when even Jesus became angered about people turning the temple into a place of merchandise.

Ditto to what The Lawlorator said, and as for "I'm sorry but you cannot call a bunch of electronic beeps music. Pick up a guitar, get some drums, not a drum machine, and play some real music!" You must be like 16 or something, probably not old enough to even remember original Nintendo and its "bleep" music. Mega Man 3, Ducktales Moon level, all them great memorable tunes and not to mention all the ELECTRONIC keyboards and shit they used back in the 80's (which unfortunately for you, this current decade wishes to replicate as part of the whole "retro" thing). Sure you prefer a more organic sound, but I'll take my NES, Gameboy and Genesis sounds. I say bring MORE of that shit to the table. Throw in all the Sidstation, LSDJ and Famitracker you can and make IT the mainstream sound, then music wouldn't be so fucking boring. It's either this, or emo rap and country so I'll take this. =P

^25 to Life, it's a jail sentence... Em is associating his relationship with Kim or whoever he is with to being in prison, being trapped. Then at the end he flips it and turns it into a metaphor for his "life sentence" in Hip Hop, it's pretty smooth... like;

"I gave up my life for you, totally devoted to you, while I've stayed
faithful all the way and this is how I fucking get repaid
Look at how I dress fucking baggy sweats, go to work a mess
Always in a rush to get back to you, I aint heard you yet
not even once say you apreciate me I deserve respect."

This can be about a chick or it can be about Hip Hop,
Em' dressed the dress and he stresses himself out tryna
top himself each time to keep fans and industry interested
but he still feels like nobody sees how much rap would suck
"Without Me."


"All i do is rap, I can not moonlight on the side
I have no life outside of that, don't I give you enough of my time?
You dont think, so do you? Jealous when I spend time with the girls"

This can be interpreted both ways, as being the industry bitchin' at him when he
tries to go spend time with Hailey and Laney instead of bein' in the studio writin'
the next single or album, or just a bitch gettin' jealous of Em' givin' other girls attention.

"Why I'm married to you still, man I dont know.
But tonight I'm serving you with papers,
I'm divorcing you, go marry someone else and make 'em famous
and take away there freedom like you did to me.
Treat 'em like you don't need them and they ain't worthy of you."

To me it seems like it's like Em' is sneaking in another "I still love you"
to Kim, it seems like the whole song is aimed at her til you get to this part
and it's not Kim it's rap that he wants to divorce, so he can spend time with
his kids and so he can get his life back...

Eminem – You're Never Over Lyrics 7 years ago
I love Em's new habit of reviving little pieces of my 80's childhoood... The loop in the beat is "Cry Little Sister" from the Lost Boys soundtrack, I remember hearing this and Martika's "Toy Soldiers" on the radio layin' in the back seat of the car while tryna ignore my mom n' dad in the front seat arguin' and just zonin' on the song tryna forget that I was there. I love the new direction and the use of synth rock and popular music in his beats. I don't know who originally sang 25 to Life, but I love it and all the little electronic noises. Em's flows are better here than they were on Relapse 1 and I love the fuckin' raw power in his voice.

Eminem – Love The Way You Lie (feat. Rihanna) Lyrics 7 years ago
Man, this song hit me so fuckin' hard it put me in tears. Shit reminds me of my mom n' dad and how damn scary it was when he'd get in one of his bipolar freakouts, threatnin' me, threatenin' my mom and puttin' holes in the walls... but I know he didn't really mean the shit, it was just his anger takin' over but I still held so much anger back at him, but now I see his behavior comin' out in me in my own relationship. It's so easy for us both to get in fights cuz we both have the same temper and tendency to get upset over the littlest shit. I love that line "You don't get a second chance / Life is no Nintendo game." Even though I always wish there was one, there ain't no reset button or a Save State file to go back to when you fuck shit up or hurt someone.

"Next time I'm pissed, I'll aim my fist at the dry wall,
Next time, there won't be no next time.
I apologize, even though I know it's lies.
I'm tired of the games, I just want her back.
I know I'm a liar.
If she ever tries to fucking leave again.
I'mma tie her to the bed and set the house on fire."

"But you promised her; Next time you'll show restraint.
You don't get another chance, life is no Nintendo game."
