Pearl Jam – Off He Goes Lyrics 5 months ago
I can't help but think this song is about Chris Cornell (RIP(<-- That's always gonna hurt...)). It seems like the only person who hasn't been mentioned here (not that I've read every comment...)
And the fact that he has to leave makes me think it's because of his addiction.. He has to leave to get his fix. Personally I think they've both referenced each other in quite a lot of their work, kind of a professional rivalry type of thing.
I'm sure the dogs CC talks about it Rusty Cage and Outshined are the guys from PJ. I'm not up on my Mother Love Bone, but there seems to be lots of dog references about that. PJ even has that album, Lost Dogs..

Pearl Jam – Hold On Lyrics 5 months ago
Doom on a "Black Horse"? (2 heroin references right there..)

Pearl Jam don't do much heroin music, but they must of felt it's curse, given their early history.
No wonder this was left off their earlier recordings. It's clearly about smack..

Pearl Jam – Not for You Lyrics 5 months ago
I think he's talking to himself.


He's definitely not happy with his fame, not happy with who he's become:
"If you hate something, don't you do it, too"

Also, his success has alienated him:
"Scream my friends don't call me
Friends, they don't scream
My friends don't call my friends don't"

He's saying that his fans scream for him, but they're not his friends, and his real friends don't call anymore..

The Prodigy – Firestarter Lyrics 5 months ago
I always thought this was an anarchist anthem.

He's saying he's saying he doesn't fit in, but neither do you, so start a fire (?) metaphorically..
Also, there is a YouTube video of this song in reverse, it quite clearly says: yes! The devil sent us, fight the system, I stand beside you.

The Prodigy – Smack My Bitch Up Lyrics 5 months ago
I used to be a DJ in the local scene... Since this is obviously a party/dance tune popular on the dance floor at the time, my interpretation is this:

Change my pitch up=literally, change the pitch of the next track to match the current on; beat mixing.

Smack my Bitch up=slap the cross fader on your mixer around like a total legend...

Pearl Jam – Spin the Black Circle Lyrics 6 months ago
Hang on.. A thought occurred to me today. I was listening to this and thinking how good a driving song it is... Then I came up with this (bearing in mind I've read that Eddie loved his pick up truck...) :

See this needle,
Oh see my hand.
=
Looking at the dashboard, I see a needle on the speedometer, and my hand on the wheel.

Drop, drop, dropping it down
oh so gently
here it comes
touch the flame
Turn me up
won't turn you away
=
Slowly pushing down on the gas peddle, touch the flame could be a reference to an internal combustion engine,
Turn me up (the revs go up)
Won't turn you away: OK, getting a bit specific, but what if he's doing donuts in his car? He's not turning away, he's turning in to the turn.. Get it?

Spin the black circle = tyres spinning.

Pull it out = getting on the road, pulling out to drive.
a paper sleeve = maybe a road map?
Oh my joy
only you deserve conceit = my car makes me feel like a big man!
Oh I'm so big = again, I'm a big man in my car!
and my whole world
I'd rather you
rather you, than her = taking my frustration out by driving because my woman pisses me off.. (OK, that's a stretch)

Oh you're so warm = the engine is hot.
oh, the ritual
as I lay down your crooked arm = stick shift, the crooked arm of the gears..

Quite hilarious, but it might not have anything to do with drugs or music.. Just driving to vent frustration (like young men do..)

Pearl Jam – Spin the Black Circle Lyrics 6 months ago
This song is genius. The drug innuendo is obvious, but the vinyl reference is heavier, it beats it. To me, this song is about someone who has dealt with a heroin addiction, but now finds the joy in the music.
He wants you to think about smack, he compares it to music, using the same metaphorical writing as a heroin song.
This line clinches it for me: "I'd rather you than her."
Could be talking about choosing drugs or music over a woman. But I think he's preferring music over heroin. Heroin gets referred to as a woman in a lot of music.
Then there's the tempo of the song.. It's a bloody celebration! This is someone who's conquered addiction and is rocking hard! Awesome!

Rage Against the Machine – Bullet In The Head Lyrics 10 months ago
This song is clearly about how TV has become a tool to turn you into a mindless patriot and consumer.

Also I believe the line about a shout out to the 'living dead" is aimed at the hippies from the previous generation, who knew what what was wrong with the world but chose to do drugs instead of acting.

Red Hot Chili Peppers – Soul to Squeeze Lyrics 10 months ago
@[jungenbum:21060] for the most part I agree with you, but I think a couple of lines need clarification:
"With all the dying trees I scream" = the world is turning to shit... We are destroying our own environment. (hence I escape in my addiction.)

Today love smiled on me,
It took away my pain. = I shot up, I used today and forgot my pain...

Fatboy Slim – Everybody Needs a 303 Lyrics 11 months ago
Everybody body needs a 303.. Not a title, that's what I think it literally means.
I love this song. Based on it, I bought an mc 303 (not the devilfish refered to in the song).
Soon after, I bought a sampler, multiple effects units. Then I ended up with 2 turntables (and a microphone)..
I spent most of my spare time in my twenties making music on this equipment... It is the mist rewarding hobby a human can have...

Thanks Fatboy...
With love.

Red Hot Chili Peppers – Give It Away Lyrics 11 months ago
@[sokorny:20834] ok, let me refine my interpretation. The song is clearly a party anthem. Maybe not focused entirely on heroin. Do a little dance and drink a little water.. Probably refers to MDMA, but all the parts about "what I got" refer to heroin.
Give it away, is clearly telling you to lose your inhibitions.. Go wild.
Simply put, it's not about a stupid jacket.

Red Hot Chili Peppers – Give It Away Lyrics 11 months ago
OH MY GOD YOU IDOITS!

First off.. I like song, however..
Fact: written by a junkie.

What I got, you gotta get it put in you:

I'm using heroin, intravenously.. Literally, you have to take the drug and "put it in you".
I understand the sexual misdirection the song has, but if you believe that, you believe Anthony keidis wants to fuck your dad.. (give it to your papa).
He just wants everyone to have heroin.
Because he's in the fun stage of his addiction, then his music gets depressing..

The piggies get a mention too. Chris Cornell mentions the pigs too. Pigs are non functioning heroin addicts. Looked down upon by those that use but can keep it together and not be smacked out all the time..

Yeah... Smack anthem.

Green Day – Longview Lyrics 11 months ago
Okay team "Spank the monkey", listen up!

This is clearly not about doing the "five knuckle shuffle"... Why? He clearly states that "masturbations lost its thrill"... So, not about "jerkin the gherkin".

This song is about what he does to get off because every other part of his life is boring... Even "stroking the snake".

There's two clues to what it's actually about, firstly the chorus: "bite my lip and close my eyes".. I'll get to this.. But trust me, it's not about "tipping out"..

Most important clue: "I smell like shit"..
Okay, now, I'm basing this on facts about the author. This could mean he's simply too lazy to adhere to a strict personal hygiene regime.. But.. Fact, the author was a junkie.. After not much time on google, you'll find that heroin junkies emit a certain odour.. (it's why the lead singer of the fat white family smeared himself in feaces... It's a statement that he doesn't care about his habit)...

So.. When you shoot up, I imagine that you would really.. Bite your lip and close your eyes.. Then go to paradise.

So, not at all about "bashing the bishop".

Just another smack anthem...

Soundgarden – Black Hole Sun Lyrics 11 months ago
@[MrSwindler:20797] he wouldn't tell the truth about it, because it's about his "disgrace" he says this in the first verse...
Black hole = point of a needle when viewed head on.
Sun = the high from heroin.
Snake = syringe (obvious metaphor) note that it gets mentioned twice the first time it's in his eyes (like a proper hardcore junkie, shooting into his eye) that's why it's the black hole sun. Second time it gets mentioned, he's talking about withdrawal (time is far too long for snakes = too long between hits)
The high from heroin washes away the rain, heroin takes his emotional pain away.
Research other Chris Cornell songs on this site, heroin comes up far too often to be ignored. He grew up in a heroin epidemic, he lost friends to it (all my friends are skeletons, spoonman)..
Accept it..
But it doesn't mean the song is awesome..
It is truly an amazing piece of art..

Eagles – Hotel California Lyrics 1 year ago
On a dark desert highway, cool wind in my hair
Warm smell of colitas, rising up through the air
Up ahead in the distance, I saw a shimmering light
My head grew heavy and my sight grew dim
I had to stop for the night
=
The dark highway is a journey, it starts with colitas (weed), but it leads to the shimmering light (a stronger drug), and he stops for the night (journey over).

There she stood in the doorway
I heard the mission bell
And I was thinking to myself
'This could be heaven or this could be Hell
Then she lit up a candle and she showed me the way
There were voices down the corridor
I thought I heard them say

=

Only one drug is referred to as "her".. And, you'd probably need a candle to use her too.. Heroin. You cook heroin in a spoon, using a candle.. hence showing him the way. Intravenous heroin is supposed to be the most intense (at the time) drug experience, showing him the way, on the highway he's started with colitas..
The voices down the corridor are previous addicts, warning him of what's to come..


Welcome to the Hotel California
Such a lovely place (such a lovely place)
Such a lovely face
Plenty of room at the Hotel California
Any time of year (any time of year) you can find it here

=

OK, weed back then would of been seasonal, whilst heroin is available all year round and there was plenty of it...


Her mind is Tiffany-twisted, she got the Mercedes bends
She got a lot of pretty, pretty boys, that she calls friends
How they dance in the courtyard, sweet summer sweat
Some dance to remember, some dance to forget

=

People are getting rich off heroin,
People are enjoying heroin,
People are using it to have fun, people are using it to forget pain..

So I called up the Captain
'Please bring me my wine
He said, "we haven't had that spirit here since nineteen sixty-nine
And still those voices are calling from far away
Wake you up in the middle of the night
Just to hear them say"

=

Basically, alcohol does nothing now, compared to heroin.
And you wake up in the night wanting heroin...

Mirrors on the ceiling
The pink champagne on ice
And she said, 'we are all just prisoners here, of our own device
And in the master's chambers
They gathered for the feast
They stab it with their steely knives
But they just can't kill the beast

=

Not sure about the first two lines, but "we are all just prisoners here, of our own device" definitely speaks of addiction, proper addicts, who don't care that they're addicted.
The masters chambers is the place where the heroin runs free, a place a true rock band would have access too (if they choosed). The feast is all the heroin you can take, but, they're chasing the dragon.. They're stabbing it with their "steely knives" (needles) but they just can't kill the beast.. They're not getting that original high.

Last thing I remember, I was
Running for the door
I had to find the passage back to the place I was before
'Relax' said the night man
'We are programmed to receive
You can check out any time you like
But you can never leave

=

This verse is just about him trying to become sober (the place I was before), but realising he's addicted to heroin (you can never leave..)...


Yeah?

Nine Inch Nails – Closer Lyrics 1 year ago
Ahem....
This is about one particular person.
Before I say who, let's all agree on something, NIN is dark, yes? Really dark.
Okay, so:
You let me violate, desecrate, penetrate, complicate you..
Key points : you let, as in this person is allowing this to happen. And desecrate.. You can only desecrate a holy place, a tomb.. Or a dead body.
Help me, I'm broken, got no soul etc.. I'm a tortured person, the only thing that works for me is this.. (the only thing that gets me off..)
I wanna Fuck you like an animal.. Obvious.
I wanna feel you from the inside.. I want every part of you.. Literally.
My existence is flawed.. I am broken.
You get me closer to God.. I get real power doing these things..
You can have my isolation and hate etc.. He's taking his issues out on this person..
Tear down my reason, make me perfect etc..
I'm out of control, doing this makes me feel right..
Okay.. So here's the big hint, the last verse is sung so quietly.. I don't understand the above the trees bit, but, "in my stomach"..
I drink the honey from your hive, your the reason I'm alive....
He has eaten the person..
This song is about Jeffrey Dahmer..

Soundgarden – Kickstand Lyrics 1 year ago
Cocks and motorcycles? You losers..
His mother's said it's alright? About his cock? Are you even thinking?
Let's apply the old "if you don't know what a soundgarden song is about, it's about heroin" logic..
Kickstand = bent spoon to cook heroin in
Getting loose and throwing up? Somethings wrong with the spoon.
It has the juice to fill his cup because, hello.. Heroin in the spoon..
My mother says it's alright /only life. In heroin circles a "mother superior" is a veteran junkie, because of the length of their "habit", it's a thing, I'm not making it up.. So the veteran junkie is telling him it's ok, it's the only life..
Other than that, I don't care to put more effort into this song because it's shite, it has to be the worst soundgarden song ever...

Soundgarden – Spoonman Lyrics 1 year ago
Erg.. Awesome song, but yes, if you're a heroin addict at a shooting gallery, the spoonman is going to save you (with his hands). His hands are also going to "come together" (rubs hands greedily), and you're going to be together with his plan, because you WANT to buy his drugs.. Also all your friends are skeletons because they've died from heroin overdoses, and all your friends are brown and red because heroin is brown when you buy it, and then red just before you shoot it (in the syringe, as you pull back, just before you shoot).

Brown and red gets referenced again in the day i tried to live.. (blood and mud), with all goes other pigs (shooting gallery)..

Wake up people..

Soundgarden – Jesus Christ Pose Lyrics 1 year ago
Nice.. Given the whole heroin thing, as others have commented on with slaves and bulldozers and burden in my hand. This would appear to be about a heroin dealer telling the addict that,
A, I have no heroin for you (addict throws his arms out...) or,
B, I'm not selling heroin anymore (addict throws his arms out...)

Staring at me like I'm driving the nails.. I'm not making you shoot up.. (nails represent syringes) I sell the drugs, but it's your fault you're addicted.

Would it pain your more to walk on water than to wear a crown of thorns? =
From other posts on this site I believe every reference Chris makes to water is about heroin (that's what it looks like in a syringe), so to walk on water, is to rise above the heroin (the addiction) and to use it. Most dealers only sell to support their own habit.


I just wonder if this stuff is written from a 3rd person perspective or from real life experience..

From what I can see, the vast majority of soundgarden songs are about heroin.. I still love it all though..
