"Love Bomb" as written by Pharrell L Williams and Chad Hugo....
Sitting Here in this white patterned room
Imagining I'm a meteor flying out through the distant space
How does tiny speckle earth destroy tomorrow
So capable of so many things
Why make life taking planes
I believe, that when you lose your root
Choose the sunlight
It could be your guide
No more political dreams
Not another excuse
Don't need another love song when you the love bomb

[Chorus:]
To just blow us away
To freakin' blow the lights out
Turning night to day
Hear it from miles away
Just to make it right now
Fuck what the government says
We gotta save some lights now
Is that OK?

Can't you see?
This is the Truman show baby
Cause when they fight who dies is you
Oh what if you unscrew me
We've got the same gears and same tools
But how you gonna catch up with your head hanging down
What'cha see staring at the ground
I believe, even without a clue
You've got sunlight
And it can be your guide
No more political dreams
Not another excuse
Don't need another love song when you the love bomb

[Chorus]

[Bridge:]
I'm trying to imply the few,
By removing propaganda but,
The must of fused a dove with super-glue,
I'm tryin' to take a machine apart yea,
What I'm simply trying to do
Is have the business take a pause,
I've been down every avenue,
But every body's good as gone

[Chorus]

    My InterpretationI think when people hear this song, they must be confused about what it means, but the beauty of the song is that you can interpret it the way you like it.

    Many people are saying it's an anti-war/anti-government song, but I think it's more of a cry of frustration.

    I feel a little crazy too, thinking that a lot of my efforts are futile. The lyrics seem to proclaim that the hippie-style "peace and love" doesn't really do it ("don't need another love song" and "they must've fused a dove with superglue"), and even the political course doesn't get it done either. In the end, we're all the same, so it seems silly that we would get caught up in these "avenues" of what would make the world better off.

    Even the protests, the anti-war propaganda is in the end propaganda--something that needs to be dismantled like the rest of the "machine" of war. Not that anti-war is bad, but it's become something that doesn't mean "peace."

    I think the chorus is something of a plea to find some magical bomb that will get rid of all the mazes and routes that aren't really cutting it. The government and a lot of sane, intelligent people say that it's impossible: that we need to do this or do that to guarantee peace, but a love bomb could just blow away all the walls we built up between us and let us see the inner workings of each other. Something like, what's the point of taking a side, if in the end, it's creating more separation between people? And, then the separation becomes the reason why we can't get along. I love the rhetorical "Is that okay?" line.

    It's a great song and tells a great story.

    General CommentThis song is beautiful. To me, it's about creating a "love bomb" and recognizing that the governnment is full of shit and does NOT care about the well being of the country. It [indirectly] says that we need to pull together as one and spread the love, because as time goes by people are getting more and more hopeless and looking down upon themselves and others. BIG props to Pharrell for writing something so epic and beautiful. For anyone who doesn't have it, this CD is fantastic. =]

    General Commenti just want to add that this is my favorite song on this cd and the guys did a good job on this cd much better than the last debacle... i know that this is probably wrong but i think that pharrell is just singing about how we could just change the hate into love that this world would be better off and most people would agree that even if i am wrong with what the song means that i am 100% right about the haqte aspect of my dumb post... much love from VA to everyone on songmeanings

    Song MeaningDefinitely a GREAT song by N*E*R*D.
    I think they're trying to say that the government should really realize what's going on in the world.
    Also, it's most likely an anti-war song.
