"Take Me Somewhere Nice" as written by and Cummings O'hare....
Ghosts in the photograph
Never lie'd to me

I'd be all of that
I'd be all of that

A false memory
Would be everything
A denial my eliminent

What was that for?
What was that for?

What would you do
If you saw spaceships
Over glasgow?
Would you fear them?

Every aircraft
Every camera
Is a wish that
Wasn't granted

What was that for?
What was that for?

Try to be bad
Try to be bad

    General CommentThe song is about this weird effect that happens in Glasgow, Scotland. There are alot of chemical treatment plants that emit a weird mist that when combined with ambient light creates weird illusions. Many Glasgowians report seeing spaceships and ufo's in the fog. Some report abductions. This song is basically the writer begging to be taken somewhere nice by the aliens because he's sick of where he is.

    A goddamn beautiful song.

    My InterpretationI feel this song goes about believing and having faith, that everything is somehow good, all tales known are true and dreaming and yearning for things in life.
    He even has manipulated memories to make all seem nice, and lives in denial.

    But towards the end it speaks of how it has somehow crumbled , how you may fail, how your faith may be tainted when wishes aren't granted and how you may want to turn away from all the niceness, ...try to be bad.

    General Commenti believe that "take me somewhere nice" is the saddest song i know!

    well, now i would like to know more about the lyrics. they sound beautiful, but i really don't know if there is a deeper sense in it. would be nice, if you could tell me something about your assumptions...

    General CommentTo me this song would be fitting after being treated like crap after having complete optimism. It's about being let down. on the flip side. Everybody's has got friends or a sanctuary where somewhere is "nice". We all are like that.

    General CommentIts a song about when you have given up all hope in life and are about to commit suicide or leave everything and everyone behind. Then this music comes up to give you hope to carry on...

    Or at someone's funeral...

    General Commentthis is definitely a good night driving song. I don't think I'd ask for the meaning. This is one of those songs that's different for everyone (that I know, at least)
