Majority Rule – Endings Lyrics 13 years ago
libbydo: yeah, this was the song that made me fall in love with them. they are, hands down, one of my two favorite bands of all time... the other being pg 99. i think those two bands together expressed everything about music that i ever loved.

Misfits – Hybrid Moments Lyrics 13 years ago
i've tried analyzing this song but i can never get anything out of it. i sing it hard and loud with my friends but i never know what i'm singing about. granted it could very well be what gabbagabba said, but how does that explain the entire first [and only] verse? and what exactly is a 'hybrid moment,' and why is danzig asking for a moment? i just.. don't get it. but christ, i love this song.

David Bowie – John, I'm Only Dancing Lyrics 13 years ago
i would see this pretty literally as the generic boy-dancing-with-friend's-girl story. also: the chameleons cover of this song rules.

Ed Gein – Nice Shoes, Wanna Fuck? Lyrics 13 years ago
you could be vindictive and say it's about a particular girl who someone fell for, only to be used, fucked, and left with lies, and empty, outreached arms. or, i could just be speaking from recent personal experiences. fuck girls.

Botch – Japam Lyrics 13 years ago
here i am a year late on this discussion, but honestly i don't see how it goes any further than a couple cracked out parents living in a shithole with their old worthless cars and thousands of empty beers, and yeah they're making meth and forcing the child to help. this isn't unheard of. some kids grow up in that shit not knowing any better. but the song ends talking about making meth.. there's no 'fire,' or 'getting the drugs out and letting the kids die.' the part about the propane is just referring to cooking it up. so the song, split up, goes like this

introduce setting, atmosphere, voice [a child]. introduce parents. point out how the child has to live with them. cracked out [living dead] mom is making drugs. dad forces the child to assist him in getting the ingredients out of the batteries [pill]. child is at the mercy of his cracked out parents, and means nothing more to them than their shitty beercan covered lot.

that's it. that's the whole song. so tell me, where is there a burning trailor and retrieval of drugs and letting the kids burn? honestly the song is just about really shitty childhood as a result of drug addicted worthless parents. i've known a couple people who grew up in that environment and it effects them for the rest of their lives. it's not really fair. parents like that deserve to have the shit kicked out of them.

Arcade Fire – Neighborhood #1 (Tunnels) Lyrics 13 years ago
my favorite part is

"but sometimes,
we remember bedrooms,
and our parent's bedrooms,
and the bedrooms of our friends.
then we think of our parents..
well whatever happened to them?"

and the ooo's at the end. those parts always get me. make me cry sometimes. sigh. this song.. it hurts.

Pg. 99 – The Lonely Waltz Of Leonard Cohen Lyrics 13 years ago
so i'm always left wondering, what does this song have to do with leonard cohen? did he write a poem about someone falling down stairs, or actually witness it, or what? as far as i know the guy is still alive. as amazing and creepy and awesome as this song is, i don't know enough about lc to get the meaning. someone help me out.

also. i think pg 99's 'creepy' stuff, ie the coc and mr splits, is some of their best. also btfpiw, sonnet to both ugly and murderous, etc. their weird, atmospheric 'horror music' really displayed their talent. god, i still obsess over this band constantly. as i said the other day.. i have a crush on pg 99.

Saves the Day – Jodie Lyrics 14 years ago
i was a pretty big std fan back in '00-'01, but got worn out on them once stay what you are came out. last summer i busted out can't slow down, through being cool, and sorry i'm leaving and rocked out while at the beach. since then i've been listening to can't slow down off and on every month or so. today i was listening to jodie while driving with my windows open during the sunset, where the shadows are long and blue, the light is dim and orange, and the air is cold yet crisp. a good start to the spring season. and i had a somewhat late realization that this is the best song that chris/saves the day ever wrote. it's so hard hitting throughout, lyrically and musically, and so intense and emotional. absolutely their opus. nothing else they have written, past or recent will ever compare to that song. i would say i was lucky enough to have seen them play this song live, only my memory of the two times they did play it live isn't all that great because i was a stupid teenager who loved to run around in moshpits at pop punk shows. so the actual experience of the heaviness and intensity of the song being performed live kind of slips my memory. anyway.. yeah. quite possibly one of the best songs of my life.

also, on a side note.. i'd like to request some kind of proof from anyone that this song is actually about a girl/mother that died? thanks. otherwise my 'interpretation' of this song is pretty straight forward. it says everything it needs to say on its own.

The Blood Brothers – Love Rhymes with Hideous Car Wreck Lyrics 14 years ago
OKAY so apparently there isn't a character limit, but rather a "you can't post links so we destroy the rest of your post" thing. so let me try to post this properly.

while looking for 'newspaper gowns' on google, i found this-

jsonline.com/lifestyle/jump/feb05/303434.asp

hello blood brothers fan. nice dress. and pretty cute for a highschool freshman. ;o

oh, one more thing i wanted to comment on. they say 'you got no visitors at all,' but at the beginning of the song they say 'wincing relatives' and then there's the 'love rhymes with pity/sympathy now' which is like anyone who cared about him at all now just pities him. cry about it. feel sad, etc. the point being that, he has visitors at some point? heh. this song is a bit self contradicting it seems O_o

The Blood Brothers – Love Rhymes with Hideous Car Wreck Lyrics 14 years ago
okay it looks like the meat of the song has been hit on.. but there's a couple things i need clarification on because i'm stupid.

first off, the way the song starts out saying

you bid her fairwell then got in your car
and that's the last thing you can recall

does that mean that he got in the wreck the day that he 'left' jane? so when he's in the hospital and thinking about all this, and the song says

she met him a week after you left her
when you tossed her out.. etc

does that mean she makes the choice not to come see him before she hooks up with this guy, and therefore is just being mean? [what i'm saying is maybe the infliction of pain wasn't entirely one sided.. but that's probably not true] i mean yeah she would be hurting from the end of the relationship, but that close to the time that it happens, who DOESN'T want an excuse, deep down, to see that person again? and who wouldn't feel pain from knowing they were hurt? those emotions hang around for a while. so i'm just lost on the time-line here. it feels like there should've been a gap between the time he left her and the time he got in the car accident, unless he had hooked up with this 'hot' bitch before he left jane. i don't know i'm running in circles. someone clear up the timeline for me. thanks.

also, i'm still trying to figure out this 'newspaper gown' thing. i think people are probably right about it being 'cheap,' but when i hear it i actually think of a dress printed with newspaper headlines [which would sell like mad to scene kids ;x], and the part where it says

she visits you in your sleep
but that newspaper gown is always on fire

makes me think that he dreams of her, but rather the dreams are nightmares, where the dress she wore when he met her is literally ON FIRE, because newspaper burns easy, etc, giving a sense of pain and seperation and overall shittiness. but i'm probably entirely wrong. i usually don't put this much work into interpretting songs. i'm just bored i guess.

heh. i was looking for stuff on 'newspaper gowns' [

Pg. 99 – By The Fireplace In White Lyrics 14 years ago
let's try and figure out some more of the lyrics. for kicks. you know? pg 99 doesn't exist anymore.. those guys won't get mad if i misinterpret some stuff.

the drifting night
begets my footsteps
against this pavement
something something

...
the drifting night
begets my footsteps
i press this pavement
until my feet scrape
in the back of my head i
saw you in the back of
my head i found a knife
dangling from your face
something something

...
'til the end of life
'til the end of life
'til the end of life
'til the end of life
something something

...
and you'll remember
a part of me
something something

etc.. that's all the better i can do for the actual song. and now i'll attempt the crazy ending.

the fear was so powerful, that it seemed to make my personality completely evaporate. i do not think that my ordinary humanity survived the transition into this little room. i died. and a wild animal appeared in my place. not everything was gone though; what remained, although small, nevertheless was occupied with an essential task of [?] ... i was looking around and as i recall ... the small circular room had a dulled, grayish tan ceiling with the walls appearing at intervals of about a foot. across the room to my right, some clothing was thrown on the floor. as a matter of habit the thought really crossed my mind they smelled actually dirty. ... tight, enclosed. time ... speed that cripples ... disturbing. in a mysterious way, ugly. ... being in a trap ... it was a truly awful sensation, accompanied as i was by the sense that i was absolutely helpless at the hands of these strange creatures. i was seated on a bench leaning against a wall. the predominate colors were tan and gray. the bench was the same colors as the walls, and was ... dark brown. it was something quite beautiful i think. having to do with the [?] in the ceiling.

..it just gets more hard to interpret as it goes. finishes with this line:

i became aware, or i think i was told, that they proposed to insert this, into my brain.

i had always assumed that whole two minute sequence at the end was about being abducted.. and now that i've finally sat here, losing my mind trying to interpret it, i've looked a bit of it up and discovered that it's a passage taken directly from the book 'communion' by whitley strieber, which is a true account of alien abduction. awesome. what that has to do with the song, we may never know. it sure is scary though.

seeing them finish up their last two shows in baltimore and dc with this song was absolutely face exploding. i'll never forget it.

BoA – Duvet Lyrics 14 years ago
du·vet
n.
A quilt, usually with a washable cover, that may be used in place of a bedspread and top sheet.

perhaps? anyway. i came looking for the lyrics to this song because i love it and it's beautiful and blah blah blah the same reason everyone else comes here. anyway. i personally think the shortened version for the show is best, and the way it fades out in the middle of the breakdown is really pretty. also, i think the visual aid of the lain intro works magic with the song. the part at the end where the wind blows and everything stops and she walks away and the breakdown starts.. i will get chills every time i witness that for the rest of my life.

Modest Mouse – Float On Lyrics 14 years ago
you know that feeling you get when you're driving down the highway with your arm hanging out the window-- you know it's going to be sunburnt when you get home-- and the wind is whipping your hair into your eyes, and you've got the stereo at a volume that may not be safe for driving.. and for a moment, nothing means anything at all.. and you feel like crying. maybe, sometimes, you do cry. that's a good feeling. it's a reminder that you're alive, and that being alive is okay. ..that's how this song makes me feel.
