Parenthetical Girls – The Privilege Lyrics 10 years ago
"i know he left you to the savages
but save it for your endless"

should read instead as:

I know he left you to the savages
but save it for your analyst *

Parenthetical Girls – Sympathy For Spastics Lyrics 10 years ago
I believe the line

"as you take to task this great guildless gilded class"

is instead:
as you take to task this great guiltless gilded class

And the lines

"and bless these men of means
whose key bombs of ketamine "

should be instead:
and bless these men of means
whose key bumps of ketamine

That is, as in to snort a bump of ketamine off of a key. The same way one snorts a line or a bump of cocaine off a surface.

The lead singer, Zac Pennington, is not a girl.

The Good Life – Your Share of Men Lyrics 14 years ago
I believe the first line is "I'm sure you've had your share of men" not "I'm shyer than your share of men".

It also makes more sense that way.

Xiu Xiu – Ian Curtis Wishlist Lyrics 15 years ago
From a CBC radio show archive Jamie Stewart says, "An Ian Curtis wish list is a list of things that you have convinced yourself that you want to have happen, but you know that are never going to happen. But, you've sort of deluded yourself into believing that they're going to happen. So half of your... and then you feel like a total ass about it... like half of your body's completely fooled itself into believing something's happened and half of your body is totally beating yourself up because the other half of the body is fooling itself. So an Ian Curtis wish list is things that would fall into that category… like being crazy into this person.”

Jamie Stewart also talks about the drunk make-out story that horse_tamer mentioned, which is a funny story in a high school way.

You can find an audio recording of the interview online by going to the Brave New Waves website.

I believe that Jane S. is the girl he was obsessed with. In the interview he says, “There was something about this person who gets named in the song very specifically…”

So yeah… if you’re curious, try and find the interview.

At the Drive-In – Non-Zero Possibility Lyrics 19 years ago
"almost up there with Thursday. "

At the Drive-in's lyrics are much more complex than Thursday's lyrics. Whether this is due to allusion, symbolism, just nonsense, etc... they're much harder to decrypt.
