America – Ventura Highway Lyrics 5 months ago
@[beachdoc:31882] He is tripping on LSD; my husband says that is what they call sewing needles out there, so perhaps it is both the acid and the flying bugs in the air! Also, purple rain is the name of LSD, I will bet. We used to call it Purple MicroDot back in the early '70s. Hope this helps.

In 1999 cell phones are a status symbol and are gonna cause brain tumors; twenty years later they are a necessity and may cause brain tumors. Also included is the idea that people will not go anywhere without them. There's a cell phone dial pictured on the alien’s head on the album cover. Cool bass, took me a while to accept the vocal effects but I'm into more. 6/10

Tom Cochrane – I Wish You Well Lyrics 1 year ago
This beautifully sounding song is like a script or playbook of how to think about transforming a romantic relationship into an amicable one. The singer comes to grips with many realizations, and predicts how his love will react to many of the things he will say and do now that he has made the realization. Much of it is written to sound good with the music, but it does coherently describe much of of the feelings and realities that one would experience. It may be interpreted as grandiose to think they are worthy of a film script or a book, but how else can you motivate a fan base of listeners to believe his words if he were less dramatic ? Awesome song that I always turn up the volume to hang on every word.

Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young – Just A Song Before I Go Lyrics 1 year ago
it was indeed written in a short time for a bet with his low level drugs dealer, you can see him say it in interview on YouTube. So no time for very complicated meanings.
I think it’s about an affair he has while on tour. Not lots of affairs as he says he ‘held her for so long’ , he sounds sad, and he was going home. He had to be seen to be alone when the doors of the plane opened at his destination, obviously because he was married. So the affair lost out to the marriage. But interesting that he says that travelling at twice the speed of sound makes it easy to get burned. He is the one doing the travelling so the inference is that he got burned and was sad to leave the lady who was in love with him.

Fall Out Boy – Headfirst Slide Into Cooperstown on a Bad Bet Lyrics 1 year ago
Though I do think it is about an affair the tense and perspective of the song I don't think the narrator is being cheated on I think his is apart of the affair with lines like
"A footnote in someone else's happiness"
and "Does your Husband Know the Way that Your Sun Shines Beams from your Wedding Band"
along with "The Walls Lean In to Listen" (Might have gotten that wrong) the walls are leaning in on what he and the girl have to say

Danger Mouse and Daniele Luppi – Black Lyrics 1 year ago
I am afraid the people saying is just about individual's life or love story are thinking way too small.

The lyrics are actually an allegory of the travail of entire Roman and then Byzantine empire — the conversion to Christianity, the abandoning of Rome for Byzantium. The knowledge and voices which, weighed down too much by history and corruption finally succumbing to black. If you have not traveled their path you will never know what it is to go so far you can never go back.

Talk Talk – It's My Life Lyrics 1 year ago
Ive always loved and been intrigued by the meaning of this song since it come out in 1984 when I was 19, for some reason it resonates with the way I've always felt. I wonder if he is in love at all and not just compromising himself, convincing himself its want he wants (when its not). He knows its his life and half measures won't do, but if he could buy his reasoning he'd still do it. Ultimately he gets lost in the crowd, a bit like life itself, secondary school or work.

Modest Mouse – The Tourist and the Tortoise Lyrics 1 year ago
I think the biggest reoccurring theme in this song is the lack of choice that we have as individuals due to things out of our control which is reaffirmed by every chorus.
Each chorus is in agreement with the previous verse even though all the verses they refer to are unpleasant/wrong/undesirable. To me, it seems this is because it already happened/it doesn't matter if we do/don't because, as a species, someone else will.

The first verse alludes to the cultural influences beyond our control (tourists of the dead), the second alludes to the historical forces beyond our control that we can't do anything about (someone already sold out the "secrets of the universe" in a vile manner), and the third verse reflects the uncontrollable factors on the individual level.

To me, the last verse is the most striking (especially if you're familiar with the principles of cognition and neuropsychology). I broke it down like this:

"Toss the map on the ground It isn't accurate anyways" (classic style of modest mouse acknowledging that the system is rigged/corrupted from the start)

The following portion shows the gradual and somewhat involuntary and insidious change as we are forced to grow in our society:

"We've been getting away
We've been getting away
We are strangers to ourselves"

This section alludes to jobs/responsibilities that take our time (and essentially life), things that we never thought we would end up doing:

"We sneak out
Drip by drip
Through paper cuts on our hands
Day after day"

This portion reaffirms that who become is foreign, even to us.

"Nothing's quite the same
We are tourists in our own heads"

Sometimes when you fall for someone you start to see things that doesn't exist. You can get all paranoid with people trying to open your eyes... and all you can think is that someone out there is lying.

Tracy is trying to say, IMO, in the end... that is better for the other person to stick with what he/she thinks its a lie. Because that is the truth.

Wow. The misinterpretation of this song amazes me but evey one like happy endings. Um. He is incapable of love. he wants to be set free. Hence" a movie quen to play the scene of bringing all the good things out in me.' He doesn't understand himself the feeling she left. " I never thought I could feel this way'? Means nothing. It doesn't say he loved her. The lyrics clearly show he's incapable of feeling and there gone and set him free. i'm a female and can decipher this. You have to e one to know one. hence why the song makes me sad because I'm the same..

Regina Spektor – Grand Hotel Lyrics 1 year ago
I think this song is about long-term depression (or sadness, or fear.) that little seed in your heart that feels like it's always in mourning, even when life seems fine. When you fight it or deny its existence, it's terrifying; when you learn to live around it it becomes benign in a way. it's still there, but it's always been there, and you know you'll be fine anyways. You can go back down to hell if you want, give your chronic lowkey sadness/human condition some company (or maybe it keeps you up at night). but you know it's not going to consume you anymore, it's not out for your soul. It's just a part of you. You stay for a day or a week and then you move on, again.

Marilyn Manson – The Reflecting God Lyrics 1 year ago
Your world is an ashtray

- We are elements on this planet (and on this universe) meant to be consumed for fulfilling the need of cosmic energy.

We burn and coil like cigarettes

- Therefore this is just what we are.

The more you cry your ashes turn to mud

- Being afflicted because of the original human nature is useless and indeed pathetic.

It's the nature of the leeches

- Humans are meant to be use and be used. It is their nature.

the virgin's feeling cheated

- Who repressed himself from the natural feelings will deeply regret it and feel cheated by the moral society rules which goes against nature.

You've only spent a second of your life

- You wasted the huge potential of life in limiting yourself, condemning life to a way lower density.

My world is unaffected

- I am untouched by the weakness of repression.


there is an exit here

- there is a way out from mental oppression.

I say it is and then it's true

- As I realize it, it become Truth.

There is a dream inside a dream

- There is another level of exhistence, besides the one that we see which is based of perception as a dream, and it is the subconscious, the place where dreams dwells, but actually real exhistence.

I'm wide awake the more I sleep

- The more time I spend in the subconscious the more I earn consciousness and I become awake and unblinded.

You'll understand when I'm dead

- You will realize what I am saying very lately.

I went to god just to see, and I was looking at me

- God is inside of Man. Similar to Dante's line in the Heaven, when he meets God and he sees himself reflected in an eye.

Saw heaven and hell were lies

- I realized that the structure of reward and punishment after life are lies, as it happens right here and right now.

When I'm god everybody dies

- In the moment that I realize I am the God of myself, my true individualism rises over the ego, I need no paragon to anybody else, and I get read of external influences.

Scar/can you feel my power?

- Pain and their consequences make me become more powerful.

Shoot here and the world gets smaller

- The more I got hurt, the more I grow, and the more the world around become smaller and clear in from of me.

Let's jump upon the sharp swords

- So let's not be afraid to hurt ourselves, let's be brave.

And cut away our smiles

- Let's be honest with ourself and abandon our social masks.

Without the threat of death

- No pain...

There's no reason to live at all

- ...no gain.

"each thing I show you is a piece of my death"

- I am showing you my transformation into God.

Shoot shoot shoot motherfucker

- Keep on hurting me, you just make me stronger.

No salvation, no forgiveness

- The real reward is not salvation as there is nothing to be saved or forgiven from.

"this is beyond your experience"

- Once you realize this, it is beyond everything you have been experiencing before.

Forgiveness

U2 – Who's Gonna Ride Your Wild Horses Lyrics 1 year ago
This is one of my favourites of the Achtung Baby album and has many meanings. I believe the whole album is about faith and deals with the relationship between Judas and Jesus. Maybe Bono views himself as Judas who questions him beliefs and the messages of Jesus (region), and took the money (fame and career) before his faith.

The song is a conversation between Judas and Jesus where Judas express his confusion and his disbelief in the in the track Jesus is leading them. Leaving him empty/outside and viewing Jesus as dangerous (for himself and the group) - don't know what he wants.

The song can be seen in relationship to Until the End of The World where Judas finally betrays Jesus. Many of the songs can be interpreted in the same way and follows the relationship between Jesus, Judas and other before and after Jesus death. A little bit like Bono's Jesus Christ Superstar album. .

Midlake – Van Occupanther Lyrics 1 year ago
When I first heard this wonderful song I was in the process of approaching a major deadline in work. I had a given myself a lot to do through my own fault and I received a lot of criticism for it. Underneath it all, I was worried that my mental health would suffer with all the 'stress'. It was like this song was written for me.

'These buckets are heavy, I filled them with water
I could ask these people but I shouldn't bother'

I love the way he takes ownership for his predicament - I filled them with water. There is a real sense of annoyance towards other who won't help him in his hour of need and see through his shyness that he is in trouble. That get angry, laugh and put him down.

Then comes the change, although it is confusing. The line 'I'm Van Occupanther' reminds me of a Simpsons episode actually where Lisa was distraught when her inspiring substitute teacher Mr Bergstorm was leaving. 'When all else fails in life' he said ' just read this note'. It said 'You are Lisa Simpson'.

So the narrator triumphantly announces that he is has a value as he is an unique human being.

However instantly he moves towards a very gloomy outlook when he considers what he has just been running through his mind. 'This world causes me so much grief and I just want to stay alone and keep out social interaction'.

Utterly brilliant. I miss Tim Smith so much.

Billy Joel – The Ballad Of Billy The Kid Lyrics 1 year ago
Regarding the previous comments about the facts of this song being wrong, I think that's the point. It's a song about myth making. Every detail in the song is inaccurate--right down to the Rio Grande which does not flow from North to South, therefore there is no "East and West of the Rio Grande."

But it's not about fact, it's about myth. Billy Joel the singer is imagining himself as a mythical character, not a historical one, with a future worthy of his imaginary counterpart.

Bon Iver – Flume Lyrics 1 year ago
He truly is his mother's only one if he wasn't. Especially, since Emma is gone. It is enough. Basics. Primal.


If it shows he wears his garments he not afraid to live naturally. And if it's a life of survival, look no further. He and life are tough.

Only life and love are so maroon or painful.
Life on the water is, unbeknownst now of the foreshadowing of rope burn, a mess from the blood, dirt, feathers
How sky is providing (bird) motherly as she feeds him nightly after hunting all day.
The reward for pain and the hunt.

He is like his mother who sat on the wall watching over everything important. Like hunting, fishing, from shore to shore. Person that takes care of all one's and other's needs. Nothing more.

Lapping lakes like the crazy loons because he's going shore to shore to just bring them back with him. Never ending chase following leaving you painfully marooned even bloody. Reddish Rouge.

Keeps telling himself only love is that painful and the course of everyday is something he is grateful for being provided such gluey feathers on the river from the sky.
