"Love 2012" as written by Nathaniel Motte and Sean Foreman....
Flash, flash, television
Give me your new religion
Fast, fast laser beams
Dreams of robotic screens
Dance, dance while you can
This is your last chance
Bang, bang, shoot 'em up
This is love 2012

I'll be the one who takes all the blame
Going down, down in flames
You'll be the one who forgets my name
Play me, playing that game

This is me, I love myself
Yeah, fuck everyone else
I don't need nobody's help
'Cause this is love 2012

Up, up on the screen
I got a new disease
Cha-ching for your soul
Everything must go
Kiss, kiss on the lips
Of the apocalypse
Ring, ring, burn the cell
This is love 2012

Don't run away from what you did
I know, know what you said
I've been living with the mess we made
Get out, out of this maze

This is me, I love myself (myself)
Yeah, fuck everyone else
I don't need nobody's help
'Cause this is love 2012

This is the dawning of personal belonging
With sirens and violins
The sky above is fallin'
This is the eve of I don't believe
That's all we got in common
The sky above is fallin'
This is the dawning of personal belonging
With sirens and violins
The sky above is fallin'
This is the eve of I don't believe
That's all we got in common
The sky above is fallin'

    General CommentThis song is amazing!! I love it!! I'm in love with the part at the end

    "This is the dawning of personal belonging
    With sirens and violins
    The sky above is fallin'
    This is the eve of "I don't believe"
    That's all we got in common
    The sky above is fallin'"

    This speaks to me. I'm not sure why. But what I take from it, is that the 'dawning of personal belonging' is a metaphor for how everyone can have an opinion without being criticized for it. Our own personal belonging can shine now. Also, 'this is the eve of "I don't believe'... It seems like it could be referring to religion. It's down in number from what it was 50, even 10 years ago. The advent of technology as well as science has made religion squirm and most people 'don't believe' anymore. And that is something that 'we all got in common'...

    Lyric CorrectionI think it's dreams of robotic "screams" instead of "screens".
    I love how the beat for this song has a post-apocalyptic feel to it. I'm not sure what it's about though.

    General CommentI'm totally gonna be thought of as a crackhead, but seriously. "The sky above is fallin" and then listen towards the end of the song. It sounds like an alien spaceship flying off.

    Also. 2012 is the year where they say the next "doomsday" is. There's also theories that the date pertains to the New World Order and such. &Propoganda references with television?

    "This is the eve of "I don't believe"
    That's all we got in common"

    Perhaps asking people to open their eyes to what's REALLY going on in this world before it's too late?

    My Interpretation"Flash, flash, television
    Give me a new religion"
    Religion seems to be a topic that is discussed quite a lot on several different TV programs. Anything from news reports, to comedy, to drama... religion is all over the place. Even in commercials.


    "This is me; I love myself
    Yeah, fuck everyone else
    I don't need nobody's help"
    Possibly the 'narrator' of the song feels abandoned and is retaliating; or this person is very self confident.


    "Up, up on the screen
    I got a new disease
    Cha-ching for your soul"
    The part about the screen could be referring to the stock market, or the debt, or anything doing with fiance. I think this because of 'cha-ching for your soul' which is referencing money in my opinion. The 'I got a new disease' could be talking about how everyone is obsessed with money, and it appears to be all about money now in their opinion.



    "Of the apocalypse"
    Some people do believe that the world is going to end this year, 2012. There are several groups who think 2012 is the year of the apocalypse.


    "This is the dawning of personal belonging"
    Could be referencing several things; my ideas are possibly it could be referencing religion, beliefs, philosophy, nationality, ethnic, race, etc. It might be talking about what you really feel is important, your personal opinion and what you consider yourself a part of. An example is that many Christians feel a sense of belonging to their church and their religion. Another example is how people from a certain country personally feel they are a part of the people of their nation, that it's where they themselves belong - these people are their 'group' that they belong too.


    "With sirens and violins"
    Sirens could be referring to emergency help/responders (such as police, firefighters, EMTs - so cop cars, firetrucks, ambulances) especially in a big city or in a place that a disaster/tragedy has recently occurred. Or it could refer to sirens such as tornado sirens that go off to warn about ... well, tornados. So it could be talking about sirens for natural disasters. It could even refer to sirens warning of an air raid (if those still exist ... xD).
    As for violins, my thought is of the rumor/legend that Nero (a Roman emperor for those who don't know), played a violin while his city burned. He just sat and played a violin and did not try to help, just responded with music. It was said that he might have actually started the fire himself. But anyways, Nero was a Roman emperor who persecuted Christians & Jews, and is sometimes associated with the apocalypse. "Non-Christian historian Tacitus describes Nero extensively torturing and executing Christians after the fire of 64." (From Wikipedia's article on Nero). This adds to my idea that he was associated with the apocalypse because he was killing Christians (which could be seen as apocalyptic from their point of view) and the speculation that he was playing the violin during the fire, which could be viewed as mental insanity (also apocalyptic to some). "Some 2nd- and 3rd-century theologians, among others, recorded their belief that Nero would return from death or exile, usually as 'the Anti-Christ. He is also seen as one of the most savage persecutors of Christians.'" (From Wikipedia as well). This supports my thoughts again, because the Anti-Christ can easily be associated with the apocalypse.


    "This is the eve of 'I don't believe'"
    Could be a reference to religion and the lack thereof / having no religious beliefs or views / not believing in any gods or other god-like & holy beings.
    -------------------------
    That's pretty much my perception of the song. I've been listening it for a long time, over a year at least... and this is what I've come to perceive as the meaning of the song over the expanse in time of listening to this.
