P.O.S. – Never Better Lyrics 5 years ago
This is a motivational song, telling the listener that the time has come to do something bold to reach your goals and not fall into complacency.

"Every never is now" means that everything that "never" happened ("Never people in place", "Never fill in the blanks", "Nothing ever gets done") become "now" - now the people in are place, now it's time to get things done.

The song also warns to not become a slave to your situation and mocks those who brag about their superficial accomplishments: "Nothing's better than aiming at nothing and hitting your mark" and "Skipping the change, keeping the fool's gold".

Anything but forward is a waste of time.

Set Your Goals – Put Yo Hood Up Lyrics 9 years ago
Anyone who takes this cover seriously needs to get their head checked. It's hilarious.

B.o.B – Airplanes Part 2 Lyrics 10 years ago
Great song. Where the first "Airplanes" is about wishing that he was back in a simpler, more innocent time, "Airplanes, Part II" looks at success from the point of view of someone who is already successful, thinking about what their life would be like if they never made the choices or had the life that got them where they are today.

Eminem's verse hits this theme hard, saying that if you spend all your time never taking risks and acting like things are just going to fall into your lap, then you'll never get anywhere and you'll just keep on wishing on 'airplanes' instead of making your dreams come true by yourself.

Ke$ha – Tik Tok Lyrics 10 years ago
So, what does P Diddy feel like in the morning?

Miley Cyrus – See You Again Lyrics 10 years ago
Haha, I'm another of those guys who don't like Miley, can't stand Miley, but love this song. It's awesome.

Owl City – The Tip of the Iceberg Lyrics 10 years ago
Love the part where the music fades out then in again at "And your lungs crystallize"!

Ten Second Epic – Welcome To Wherever You Are Lyrics 10 years ago
Great song to wake up to!

Angels and Airwaves – Some Origins of Fire Lyrics 10 years ago
Agreed, the melody line is too similar to The Adventure, you can pretty much sing them side by side.

Wester – The Fifty Year Storm Lyrics 10 years ago
The lyrics of this song are composed entirely from lines of dialogue from the 1991 film "Point Break" starring Keanu Reeves and Patrick Swayze.

The Maine – I Wanna Love You (Akon cover) Lyrics 10 years ago
In the original song, Snoop Dogg says "D-O double G" (his name which always recites), and then "and I'm here to put this dick on you" (which is pretty self-explanatory).

The Maine's version censors the song, somewhat.

The Gaslight Anthem – The '59 Sound Lyrics 11 years ago
I love when the distorted guitar kicks in on "The chains I've been hearing now for most of my life."

The All-American Rejects – Gives You Hell Lyrics 11 years ago
I he accidentally his comment.

The WHOLE comment.

David Cook – Mr. Sensitive Lyrics 11 years ago
This is what David said it was about in that EW interview with Chris Willman...

Was the title of "Mr. Sensitive" meant to be ironic in any way?

David: The song was unintentionally ironic. I had the harmonic riff in my head for five months. In my lyric journal, I had "Mr. Sincere" written down, and sincere turned into sensitive. I wanted to write about something outside myself and get a little metaphorical. He lives in a village devoid of feeling. They get so afraid of this child who has feelings that they kill him. It kind of took on this Tim Burton-like, twisted vision of James and the Giant Peach for me. But I know people look at me as that sensitive guy.

Army of Me – Perfect Lyrics 11 years ago
yal1091 - The correct line is "How did you erase all but gorgeous from your face." He says 'but' if you listen carefully, and it goes with the lyrics about how he'll one day be so amazing that people will be blown away.

Jack's Mannequin – Hammers And Strings (A Lullaby) Lyrics 11 years ago
"Just promise you won't let it be
Just the keys that you touch."

Amazing song.

Anberlin – Haight Street Lyrics 11 years ago
Such a fun song!

Eminem – Till I Collapse Lyrics 11 years ago
This song gets me pumped.

The Offspring – Why Don't You Get a Job? Lyrics 11 years ago
"My friend's got a girlfriend
Man he hates that bitch"

One of the great opening lines in the history of music.

Ten Second Epic – Avenue Days Lyrics 11 years ago
This song kicks ass.

Anberlin – Feel Good Drag Lyrics 11 years ago
Damn, this song kicks ass.

Anberlin – Disappear Lyrics 11 years ago
"The lyrics are about not forgetting the homeless."
- Stephen Christian

The Mile After – So Damn Easy Lyrics 11 years ago
Such a bitterly upbeat song.

Marianas Trench – Alibis Lyrics 11 years ago
Having just heard this song for the first time, the song doesn't necessarily have to be about bulimia, but you can put that interpretation on if you want.

To me it sounds like he's disappointed in himself and what he's become. It's gotten to the point where he's lying to others about who he is ("all my faces are alibis".)

Akon – I Wanna Fuck You (feat. Snoop Dogg) Lyrics 12 years ago
"And besides, I got a thing for you."

Hahaha. Awesome.

God or Julie – Nothing Further From Truth Lyrics 12 years ago
This song sounds like Muse, and that is totally a good thing.

T-Pain – Bartender Lyrics 12 years ago
Damn, this is one groovy song.

Relient K – Faking My Own Suicide Lyrics 12 years ago
This song's lyrics by themselves would be totally creepy. But the upbeat way they're sung makes it sweet, and the song is awesome.

Powerspace – Right On, Right Now Lyrics 12 years ago
Great song. I love how the music is upbeat but the lyrics are really sad.

Powerspace – I Put the 'Abs' In Abstinence Lyrics 12 years ago
The song title alone is enough to make me fall in love with this song.

Blink-182 – Adam's Song Lyrics 13 years ago
I actually think the apple juice line fits perfectly. When you're depressed like that, you start to think about the little things, those tiny actions, and suddenly they're such big things, and think "maybe if I didn't do that, then things would be different."

Linkin Park – Valentine's Day Lyrics 13 years ago
This is about the death of a lover. At first it seems like a broader situation of a lover leaving, but the lines "the ground below grew colder / as they put you down inside" makes it pretty clear.

Relient K – Who I Am Hates Who I've Been Lyrics 13 years ago
This song is about forgiving yourself.

Linkin Park – Shadow Of The Day Lyrics 13 years ago
Great song. I noticed it sounds a lot like U2's "With Or Without You", especially the chorus.

Fort Minor – There They Go Lyrics 13 years ago
Great song to get pumped.

Atmosphere – Trying To Find A Balance Lyrics 13 years ago
"Yeah I got some last words, FUCK ALL OF YA'LL!
Stop writin' raps and go play volleyball"

Pretty much the best rhyming couplet in history. This song gets me pumped, especially when the beat kicks in.

Aqualung – Easier to Lie Lyrics 13 years ago
Hey these are some great interpretations, henrycharles, TheSink, and Ispeakthelaw. Probably some of the best I've seen on the site. Thanks for giving me new perspectives on this beautifully sad song!

Omarion – Ice Box Lyrics 13 years ago
The first time I heard this song, I thought he was saying "I got this Xbox where my heart used to be." That'd be pretty sweet, you could play Gears of War through your eyeballs.

Lifehouse – Take Me Away Lyrics 13 years ago
I love it when it builds up to the final chorus then smacks you with the massive bass drum. Awesome.

Anberlin – Godspeed Lyrics 13 years ago
"They lied when they said the good die young."

Consider the lyric in the Billy Joel song, "Only The Good Die Young." That song is about a Catholic girl who is pressured into having pre-marital sex, and includes the lyrics:

"They say there's a heaven for those who will wait
Some say it's better but I say it ain't
I'd rather laugh with the sinners than cry with the saints
Sinners are much more fun."

I believe the message in Godspeed, is to dismiss the idea that the sinners live better, more exciting and adventurous lives. That idea is just a lie, and the truth is that the good people, who don't succumb to society's decadent temptations, are the ones who will really lead the most fulfilling and satifsying lives.

With that said, this song absolutely rocks.

Angels and Airwaves – Star of Bethlehem Lyrics 13 years ago
It gets a bit repetitive near the end, but a cool song nonetheless.

Jack's Mannequin – La La Lie Lyrics 13 years ago
I love the way he sings "Palm treeeeee". It's not what you'd expect to hear at that kind of buildup.

Underoath – In Regards to Myself Lyrics 13 years ago
This song is freakin' brutal. I love it.

Underoath – Moving for the Sake of Motion Lyrics 13 years ago
Ok, this song was just put up on their Purevolume page, and the lyrics are completely different. Anyone have the real ones?

Underoath – A Moment Suspended in Time Lyrics 13 years ago
I've reported that the titles are wrong in the forums, they should be corrected soon.

Underoath – Writing on the Walls Lyrics 13 years ago
I've reported that the titles are wrong in the forums, they should be corrected soon.

Run Kid Run – We've Only Just Begun Lyrics 14 years ago
This is the song that you play when stepping out of the house on a sunny day.

Dead Poetic – Molotov Lyrics 14 years ago
The name "molotov cocktail" is from the Russian name Vyacheslav Mikhailovich Molotov, a Soviet politician who was the People's Commissar for Foreign Affairs.

Before WWII, when Finland refused to surrender some land to the Soviet Union, the Soviets invaded. The Finnish Army, facing Red Army tanks, borrowed an improvised incendiary device from the Spanish Civil War.

When Molotov claimed in radio broadcasts that the Soviet Union was not dropping bombs but rather delivering food to the starving Finns, the Finns started to call the air bombs satirically "Molotov picnic baskets". Soon they responded by saluting the advancing tanks with "Molotov cocktails."

^ Paraphrased from Wikipedia. It has little to do with the song, however...

Discover America – Call It In The Air Lyrics 14 years ago
Yeah, it's about making a decision. The name of the song comes from sports, where two teammates are under a ball they have to catch. One of them has to "call it in the air" and make the decision to be the catcher, or else they'll probably collide and not catch anything.

Silverstein – Discovering The Waterfront Lyrics 14 years ago
This is the song you play when you get every card she sent you, every photo of you and her together, and every soppy love letter she gave you... then shred them up, put them in a can, soak it with meths, light a match and watch it shrivel up and turn into ashes under the flames.

Dead Poetic – Dimmer Light Lyrics 14 years ago
love this song... lol I totally didn't know there was a cello in it until I saw the liner notes... then on the next listen I suddenly hear all these string plucks! Brilliant!
