Bee Gees – Cucumber Castle Lyrics 2 years ago
Yeah, my question is this. Did the fool who put up these lyrics (lyrics which Google has chosen to highlight, even though they are wrong) even listen to the song. "a thing gets inspired" is not correct, and if you bothered to play the song you would know that. The correct lyric has always been "a Pinkerton spy", idiots.

First off, 2018!!!
I am living, eating breathing Radiohead right now, it all makes sense to my life at least at this moment.
------------------------------------------

You are the sun the moon and stars
Are you and I could never run away from you
-(You are my everything, I love you, I could ditch everything and run away with you.)

You try at working out chaotic things
And why should I believe myself, not you
-(The couple (or one-sided love) is trying to work out chaotic life stressors, obviously this couple is trying hard to make it work, you even doubt yourself and take the blame, just to try and make it work.)

It's like the world is gonna end so soon
And why should I believe myself?
(When you feel like the relationship is going to HELL, everything else seems to be going the Hell too.. But why should I believe myself?

Yeah

You, me, and everything
Caught in the fire
I can see you drowning
Caught in the fire
(For me, there is so much chaos going on that is affecting both your lives, you and he, (I'm a female) seem to be just in this cross-fire with everything. You can see you beloved drowning.)

You, me, and everything
Caught in the fire
I can see you drowning
Caught in the fire

Djavan – Eu Te Devoro Lyrics 2 years ago
@[Boritato:26546]

Your signals
confuse me from head to toes
but in my inside, i want to devour you
your way of looking
it does not tell me exactly who you are
but still I want to devour you

I would devour you, at any price
because i either ignore you or know you
when its raining or when its cold

in another plane of existence
I would devour you like Caetano to Leonardo Di Caprio
(it's a joke the author makes)

it's a miracle
everything God created
thinking of you
he made the Milky Way
he made the dinosaurs
without thinking about anything
he made my life.
and he gave it to you

not counting the days
that make me die
without knowing about you
playing solitude
But, if you want to know
if i want another life?
no, no...


what i want is to live
to be able to wait... Wait
devour you
I want to live
and wait
you

Ladytron – The Reason Why Lyrics 2 years ago
Could be wrong, but for me, the words are right there and I relate.

I'm so infatuated and obsessed over the person I can't have that I fall asleep at my console, my laptop, my phone, exhausting myself to see them whilst researching on how to win them or just day dreaming of them. I don't remember my actual dreams I'm so exhausted.

I'm checking in my social media, just like any other, no big deal. It's not about them, right?

Signing off, signing out forever? Me deleting and attempting to stay off forever, just to get them off my mind and over it.

Your second hand, that's the reason why you're easy to drive.
My second hand is my weak side, I easily drive myself crazy.

You understand, that's the reason why you're easy to hide
I understand I can easily hide my feelings if I must

My heart says yes, but I was sedated
I'm more in love with this guy because he's like drugs to me, I'll say yes to anything he needs.

Signing off, checking in together. Singing off, hiding again, and there were times where he's actually met me or reached out after being away, checking in together.
He'll still check up with me. Maybe I'm hoping this time, he will.

You joined a band, that's the reason why you're easy to try
Here I am, obsessing over lyrics, writing my own, joining the sad poets because I'm so emotionally vulnerable.

Icon For Hire – Pop Culture Lyrics 2 years ago
I think this song is a critic to people who say they hate pop culture (pop music). The lyrics are ironic and are needling that kind of people specifically in some parts like the chorus:

"Pop culture does nothing for me
The American dream mainstream just bores me
'Cause I'm not like you, I'm immune, I'm immune"

Icon for Hire drops a hint that it's sarcasm when the lyrics goes:

"Say it over and over until it comes true" and

"And we all act like we see right through it
When we all know we're addicted to it"

This is my interpretation.

Van Morrison – Rough God Goes Riding Lyrics 2 years ago
Who doesn't get a rough deal in life at one time or another?
Look at Movie Stars crying for attention: needy vacuums, you think, sometimes.
Look at the poor: some shine from the inside, while cleaned up & given an opportunity to change top to bottom, some return to the bottom without a thought.
Is that God Rough Riding? Where are we in the midst? It's hardly 1-dimensional.
And what about the hand we are dealt? Our health, looks, parents, conditions?
So is the song something laid on us? Van has said it. He's just a Songwriter.
He's in the mix....we are in the mix Rough & smooth: Sand paper applications.
Imagine learning as working with being wrong. If not, we couldn't improve on us.
See what I mean? We have to experience consequences to improve or be numb.

I think this song is about a loved one who is already in heaven..
Feels just so fine
When we touch the sky me and you
This is my idea of heaven
Why can't it always be so good

But it's alright, I know you're out there
Doing what you've gotta do
You are my soul satellite
I'd be lost in space without you ...

The Contortionist – Reimagined Lyrics 2 years ago
i see this song as someone realizing the meaning of life and portraying it in its form of communication, the "it was a different kind of speech" i tend to read this in a lovecraftian way, as he learned a way to speak of things that transcends his knowledge, therefore only adressing something so great just by "different kind of speech" like his mind couldnt conceptualize all that he discovered
and by discovering that he also began to see other things, such as the shape of sound (another link to communication) and he express all he learned through the phrase "breathe and breathe in, once you find the breath you lost, breathe again"
meaning only once you figure out what takes your peace from you, relax and focus on other things in your life

Graham Nash – Better Days Lyrics 2 years ago
I believe the song is about two individuals in love, she is pursuing something she thinks will make her happy. But when she gets there the reality of disappointment occurs. "chasing mirrors through a haze" its an illusion. When that person realizes its all BS the other lover is there to say there is nothing stopping you from coming back, knowing full well she had to at least go see for herself. "don't you cry because she is gone, she is only moving on" to find the truth, which will ultimately put right back where she was.

I came to this because Im currently going through it, she had to go see for herself...
It just matches and hits every one of my internal chords so dead on.

Slipknot – Snuff Lyrics 2 years ago
I agree with a lot of what you all have said... I just have a more personal take on this song because it has been.. there has been no other song that closely matches how I've felt recently with things that have gone on in my life.

I was in a relationship for three years, engaged for one year of that, lived with them for two. I know, it seems like a short lived relationship but so much went on in it that this song has been.. oddly helpful in my trying to cope with everything.

The song describes so much of what happened between us but I felt abandoned in the end. I was left to deal with their secrets, the shames, their problems and then they left me with a clear conscious despite all they put me through... And like so many before him, he abandoned me. He left me to rot after having taken so much of his demons out on me. And I don't care if he says he still cares for me, I don't want to know because I don't want to feel like there's hope right now. He's done too much damage to me and I've been left feeling bitter.

This is how the song has felt to me. I had my own demons from my life but things had been going so much better and then I thought he was the ultimate symbol that my life was finally on the right track, but in the end he just.. left his sins in my soul and left.

That is basically how the song feels to me, if it makes any sense.

Coldplay – A Message Lyrics 2 years ago
This used to be my ex and I's song. Over time, it's had different and very personal meanings for me. At the beginning, I was transfixed with the "on a platform" lyric as it seemed to convey my confession of love for her and wanting to shout it from the rooftops to everyone. As time went by, our relationship slowly and selfishly became less and less about each other and I became more transfixed on the sort of heartbreaking and somber nature of it. It speaks softly but surely about a sort of unrequited, unreturned, undeserving kind of love... A love you have to give too much of yourself to have. Needless to say our relationship wasn't ever meant to be and after years of on again off again trying over and over to make it work we finally had to let go. It was awful, and it's been years since I've brought myself to listen to this song all the way through. Funny enough this is right around the time of year I first really heard it and shared it and my feelings with her so long ago, and I've got to admit it makes me really kind of sad. Especially when thinking back now on how things turned out with us, but you know things change, time goes by, you move on, you fall in love all over again, and in the end life ends up full of little bittersweet remembrances just like this damnable song.

Gordon Lightfoot – Canadian Railroad Trilogy Lyrics 2 years ago
This song is a Masterpiece and I agree, should be Canada's second national anthem.....Gordon weaves his words and music into a Majestic Tapestry telling the story of Canada and the building of the Canadian Pacific Railroad.....Open 'er heart and let the life blood flow.....to me symbolizes the progress of the construction of the railroad as it reaches the center of Canada, the Prairies, the heart of our country, opening the way to move grain and goods across the land.......the lyrics paint a beautiful picture, but the music, done in 3 distinct styles as the progress of the railway travels from the Eastern Shores, to the Prairies and then through the Rockies to the Pacific Coast is a marvel in itself.....listen closely and you will hear how the guitar music mimics the rhythms of the train & the speed of the travel which comes to an abrupt stop at the Rocky Mtns... the point of the song where "across the blue Rockies our loved ones are sleeping".....the verse continues to tell the tale of the Navvies work & sacrifices on the railroad, which is solemn & slower during the verse to reflect the slow speed of working to lay down the tracks & the back breaking work of the Navvies. At the point where the song comes to the end of the line, Bending our backs til the railroad is done', the music again switches, again mimicking the sound of a train, slowly at first & then gains in speed as the lyrics retrace the course of the railroad, going back to where it began "Over the mountains and over the plains, into the Muskeg & into the rain, Up the St Lawrence and down to Gaspe".....from the Pacific to the East Coast. The railroad is built, their work is done.....it truly is a remarkable music composition on it's own. Combine it with the well chosen lyrics and it's probably the best song ever written,certainly Mr Lightfoot's best, and without question the greatest song to ever come out of Canada. Commissioned by the CBC to commemorate Canada's Centennial in 1967, it is truly a Canadian standard, written and performed by the best song writer Canada ever produced, a man we Canadians are so very proud of......

Icicle Works – Whisper To A Scream Lyrics 2 years ago
I agree that the lyrics are wrong here and elsewhere:
We are MATURE children

also, in many places it says "Changes forever" when it's "Take us forever", like here.

Now here's my interpretation, and I have to say one tiny line has really had a HUGE impact on my life: "Whisper to a scream"

To me, this song is about the difficulties of discussing, debating, and in the end arguing. It's such a necessary part of doing anything together in a group. But in both personal relationships and in politics, it so often degrades into everyone screaming at the top of their lungs, and never getting anywhere. We choose the loudest words, the words that most hurt, over the words that would really make a difference in getting us somewhere.

If I were to write this song, the parallel I'd try isn't with birds, but with fighting dogs. When I was a kid, I had a pitbull, really a sweet thing, but would get in a lot of scraps with other dogs... As a kid, I would sometimes have to pull them apart, and it was there that this song really started resonating with me: I found that the more I yelled at my dog to stop fighting, the more excited he got. So I had to learn to jump in the middle of the violence, and start soothing him. Soft words, petting, anything to calm him down and "change the subject" - a whisper to a scream.

And this is what I see over and over again with people: the worst thing you can do when you disagree is to yell at them, but it's the hardest thing to do, to learn to pull back and speak in a whisper rather than adding fuel to the fire. "Take us forever" has a double meaning to me: it seems like it takes forever to get a point across when you decide to slow down and cool off. And, it will take forever for all of us mature children to learn how to whisper to a scream.

The Heavy – Short Change Hero Lyrics 2 years ago
I think this song is about a PTSD "hero," which is why it is used in Strike Back and Borderlands. Basically, people with PTSD are dysfunctional in regular society, however, they thrive when all hell is breaking loose - in fact, it is where they feel most comfortable. For example, in a battlefield environment, the goal is simply ... survival - at any cost; so the world is black and white.

However, in the "regular" world there are shades of grey and so in the regular world there is no place for a hero (of war). And in regular society, the PTSD "hero" needs a lot of support because the world is no longer black and white. So I think it's relatively cathartic because the "hero" is only a "hero" when shit hits the fan, but when everything is "cool" the hero becomes an anti-hero since they are so fucked up from dealing with all the shit when shit hits the fan.

Great song about perception and reality.
