The Wallflowers – Three Marlenas Lyrics 1 year ago
Mary Magdalena

Alone tonight in somebody's bed (she had another meaningless sex)
She gone and dyed her hair red (she wanted to look good for her new mate)
She only went and did what she did
'Cause he would drive her home then (she pleased him)
There's lipstick on her new dress
She hadn't even paid yet (desperate to find love)
But it doesn't matter where the money went
It wasn't how she paid her rent (she didn't use money right)

One, two, three Marlenas (three Mary's from scripture allusion to prostitutes)
There's got to be someone we can trust
Out here among us (this line is from wisdom calling)

Mary mother of Jesus

Now lookin' out across the city lights
She thought they'd be a good pair (she made it with a man so far)
Now he could make a living sellin' cars
Maybe she could work there
She's gonna pick a star in the night
And pray to make it all right (leaning on if he loves her)
She tried so hard not to pick a kite
She always prayed to heaven lights (she prays to gods to protect her from her husband not unloving her)

One, two, three Marlenas
There's got to be someone we can trust
Out here among us
One, two, three Marlenas
It's see no, speak no, hear no evil about us
The three Marlenas

Mary of Cleopas

Man, I think I'm gonna buy myself a Rolls
Maybe a Chevrolet
One where I can pull that top down
Just let my radio play
Now I'm headin' out on that highway
I'm goin' right out of state
Now I ain't lookin' back until I'm gone
Right through heaven's gates (Mary of cleopas looking for heaven not for anyone or anything bc they all hurt her)

One, two, three Marlenas
There's got to be someone we can trust
Out here among us
One, two, three Marlenas
Ya see no, speak no, hear no evil among us
The three Marlenas
Three Marlenas
Three Marlenas

The three marlenas want a perfect world and are innocent women. They have to learn to not be bitter and be more honest with themselves and stop seeing thru rose glasses but as things are. Not living other people's dreams, illusions, fantasies neptune shit just st8 real deal bc they have to cope with life .

Mary Magdalena, Mary of cleopas, and Mary of nazarene followed a cult leader of his day in Christianity today

Madonna – Ray of Light Lyrics 1 year ago
I feel like this lady Madonna is my mother. The pt is she is saying that I am in
bliss knowing the gods are in control and I cling to hope because of literature
I read.

For instance, if I need zephyr to bring me to the home of my gf I'll implore him.

If I need to figure out a math problem I'll pray to pythagoras.

Apollo is good for music duh he's the god of music.

The call of thunder is zeus threatening that's his job.

I actually am a reluctant happy medium.

Tears for Fears – Everybody Wants to Rule the World Lyrics 2 years ago
Welcome to your life
There's no turning back - the angel of the pit makes a deal with you after death
Even while we sleep
We will find You acting on your best behavior
Turn your back on mother nature
Everybody wants to rule the world - here its saying fuck your family do it right this time after your first death

It's my own desire
It's my own remorse
Help me to decide
Help me make the most Of freedom and of pleasure
Nothing ever lasts forever - here the desperate person is praying to it
Everybody wants to rule the world - they all want to get the cup whatever it is

There's a room where the light won't find you
Holding hands while the walls come tumbling down
When they do, I'll be right behind you
So glad we've almost made it
So sad they had to fade it - the beings of light killed the gay men and now they want to rule the world after they came back
Everybody wants to rule the world

I can't stand this indecision
Married with a lack of vision - gay couple reference that wants to rule with revenge
Everybody wants to rule the world

Say that you'll never, never, never, need it
One headline, why believe it? - they are saying they can get away with their plan whatever it is
Everybody wants to rule the world

All for freedom and for pleasure
Nothing ever lasts forever - cater to their whims and we'll rule the world sounds like gay businessmen
Everybody wants to rule the world

this song is about a gay or two businessman that died and came back to life to rule the world. maybe tears for fears is saying that they are they pinky and the brain that wants to rule the world with a vegence thanks to the angel of the bottomless pit that let them out for a vegeance.

lets pray they dont cause havoc pls whoever they are .they needed their cup of tea in heaven you get me.

Led Zeppelin – Over the Hills and Far Away Lyrics 3 years ago
Hey lady, you got the love I need
Maybe more than enough
Oh darling, darling, darling
Walk a while with me
Ohh, you've got so much, so much, so much

(he is beckoning the girl of his dreams after a long search)

Many have I loved, and many times been bitten (no good luck in love thus far)
Many times I've gazed along the open road (loneliness w/ an open heart)

Many times I've lied, and many times I've listened (lied to get his way and was frank)
Many times I've wondered how much there is to know (hasn't got a clue about most relationships , lack of exp. )

Many dreams come true, and some have silver linings (ponders about people having their dreams come true, and some see the light)
I live for my dream, and a pocket full of gold (living to live the dream and reach his gold- metaphor for the girl he is beckoning)

Mellow is the man who knows what he's been missing (men are not lit on fire by man a women)
Many, many men can't see the open road (the open road now is opportunity for true love)

Many is a word that only leaves you guessing (now he knows men are lost in the forest on how to look for true love)
Guessing 'bout a thing you really ought to know, oh, oh, oh, oh (don't know how to search for their twin flames!)
Really ought to know
I really ought to know
Oh
You know I should, you know I should, you know I should, you know I should

Iron & Wine – Boy with a Coin Lyrics 3 years ago
A boy with a coin he found in the weeds (he found a treasure amongst the dead or it was dead and he thought it was treasure)
With bullets and pages of trade magazines (he glossed over the story)
Close to a car that flipped on the turn (he almost had an accident with it)
When God left the ground to circle the world (when God stopped looking after him for a second to care for his heart's treasure)

A girl with a bird she found in the snow (that's his token. that bird or man was cold)
Then flew up her gown and that?s how she knows (she found out something after she had a private moment with him)
That God made her eyes for crying at birth (she is a bitter woman )
Then left the ground to circle the Earth (she circled the earth for love)

A boy with a coin he crammed in his jeans (he put her in his pocket, found her but comfy w her)
Then making a wish he tossed in the sea (his wish got lost in the emotions)
Walked to a town that all of us burn (he retreated in a godforsaken town)
When God left the ground to circle the world (God felt it was hopeless and stopped helping or searched for another couple to rectify the earth)

I feel this is warning for myself shit...

America – A Horse With No Name Lyrics 3 years ago
On the first part of the journey (in his childhood of life)
I was looking at all the life (he was exploring his childhood)
There were plants and birds and rocks and things (he was carefree wild eyed observant child)
There was sand and hills and rings (he went on journeys/camping)
The first thing I met was a fly with a buzz (the fly with a buzz was a foretelling of his sickness that would soon follow)
And the sky with no clouds (its foreboding that lasts a short while)
The heat was hot and the ground was dry (things are getting bored in the hot sun)
But the air was full of sound (full of temptations)

I've been through the desert on a horse with no name (his vehicle through a city desert had no name or no known status)
It felt good to be out of the rain (the rain was oppression)
In the desert you can remember your name (lonely deserted area)
'Cause there ain't no one for to give you no pain (he was too alone to have pain)
La, la (so his la's were cooling)

After two days in the desert sun (two day advent something's brooding or coming)
My skin began to turn red (his skin turned to red or blazed by the sun's rays of oppression by his isolation so he's turning to something...)
After three days in the desert fun (he turned to having fun in the desert for 3 years maybe?)
I was looking at a river bed (he was peering into danger)
And the story it told of a river that flowed (his dangers overtook him bc of temptation)
Made me sad to think it was dead (he must have escaped death and it made him sad)

You see I've been through the desert on a horse with no name
It felt good to be out of the rain
In the desert you can remember your name
'Cause there ain't no one for to give you no pain
La, la

After nine days I let the horse run free (after 9 years he let his belongings behind)
'Cause the desert had turned to sea (his lonely seeking had turned emotional)
There were plants and birds and rocks and things
there was sand and hills and rings (he went back to a carefree life)
The ocean is a desert with it's life underground (he swam into the sea of life maybe his senses came back to him)
And a perfect disguise above (he realized the reflection of the sky of futility and love and life was reflecting in his emotional state of mind)
Under the cities lies a heart made of ground (he went within and had a heart to give love)
But the humans will give no love (but the city life was stony so it didn't reciprocate)

You see I've been through the desert on a horse with no name
It felt good to be out of the rain
In the desert you can remember your name
'Cause there ain't no one for to give you no pain
La, la

(so he went back to being a lonely wanderer

The Verve – Bittersweet Symphony Lyrics 4 years ago
'Cause it's a bittersweet symphony, this life (the sound of my life is like a bittersweet symphony- compartmental and synchronistic to my bitterness)
Try to make ends meet (all I do is work to make ends meet)
You're a slave to money then you die (this is how i feel day to day)
I'll take you down the only road I've ever been down (this is what rut my mind dwells on)
You know the one that takes you to the places (it always boils down to money in my life bc I struggle w this thought)
Where all the veins meet yeah, (its all coming from my heart I need healing. maybe I should read wisdom books like the bible)

No change, I can't change (I am always going to be ill I can't change how can I be whole they say I'm sick)
I can't change, I can't change
But I'm here in my mold (my mold is my clay like body I was born w a disease its schizophrenia)
I am here in my mold
But I'm a million different people (i feel like different people bc I sense them too much I need to focus and get healthy)
From one day to the next
I can't change my mold
No, no, no, no, no (i feel one but sick and alone, need love and healing)

Well I never pray (I don't believe in anything that can heal me but...)
But tonight I'm on my knees yeah (but i'm going to pray and hopefully heal w diet)
I need to hear some sounds that recognize the pain in me, yeah (music soothes my disease- it is good for me)
I let the melody shine, let it cleanse my mind, I feel free now (it does heal me but not completely, I am incomplete)
But the airways are clean and there's nobody singing to me now ( i have no romance probably bc I am different or busy working)

No change, I can't change
I can't change, I can't change
But I'm here in my mold
I am here in my mold
And I'm a million different people
From one day to the next
I can't change my mold
No, no, no, no, no
I can't change
I can't change

'Cause it's a bittersweet symphony, this life
Try to make ends meet
Try to find some money then you die
I'll take you down the only road I've ever been down
You know the one that takes you to the places
Where all the things meet yeah

You know I can't change, I can't change
I can't change, I can't change
But I'm here in my mold
I am here in my mold
And I'm a million different people (i know what people think bc of my schizophrenia i am unfiltered, they say in native american medicine i am a shaman the west claims I am supposed to be on meds bc of work and society standards)
From one day to the next
I can't change my mold
No, no, no, no, no

I can't change my mold
No, no, no, no, no,
I can't change
Can't change my body,
No, no, no

I'll take you down the only road I've ever been down (all I have known)
I'll take you down the only road I've ever been down
Been down (down w out romance but thinking too much)
Ever been down
Ever been down
Ever been down
Ever been down
Have you ever been down? (anyone like me?)
Have you've ever been down? (anyone cause me too)

I can relate to this song :)

Beach House – Myth Lyrics 4 years ago
Drifting in and out, see the road you’re on
You came rolling down the cheek
Say just what you need
And in between it’s never as it seems

(It means someone like me is living in and out of touch with reality. They came as a tear in an eye of a mother meaning and when they say what they need its not explicit there is something in beneath there so there is a hidden dilemma)

Help me to make it
Help me to make it

(this person is needy)

If you build yourself a myth
Know just what to give
What comes after this
Momentarily bliss
Consequence of what you do to me

(if you live a lie or a label out there like "hey i'm a doctor" or "hey i'm a spouse" or "i'm a mother" then you'd feel related to and have a "life" bc then you are a part of the matrix and no longer truly needy.

Help me to make it
Help me to make it

(therefore she is still needy)

Found yourself in a new direction
Eons far from the sun
Can you come when they come to reach you
Let you know you’re not the only one

(the new direction eons far from the sun means they've experienced an awakening but in darkness. like an epiphany but if someone reaches out to this person to share in the sunlight she will not feel belonged bc in metamorphosis stage)

Can’t keep hanging on
To all that’s dead and gone
If you build yourself a myth
Know just what to give
Do you lie?
We’ll let the ashes fly

(same themes keep coming. dead and gone people come and go. but the process of living a label is unappealing now should one make money and be fruitful and multiply or should one die to this life?)

Help me to make it
Help me to make it

(still she realizes she can't live with or without them. its a pardox)

I think this song is mystically about myself. I struggle w mental illness and sometimes feel in a different world though sadly part of it.

When my love
Stands next to your love
I can't compare love
When it's not love

(they are so in love they don't know the feeling of not being in love)

It's not love
It's not love
Which is my face
Which is a building
Which is on fire
On fire

(he building on fire is his house, its his face bc the world sees his home life on fire with love)

When my love
Stands next to your love
I can't define love
When it's not love

(he can't define love bc he is always in love and there is no , "no love")

It's not love
It's not love
Which is my face
Which is a building
Which is on fire

(the house is on fire with love and its something he shows the world w/ his face , it seems to be known)

I've got two loves
I've got two loves
And they go tweet, tweet, tweet, tweet, tweet, tweet, tweet, tweet like little birds

(his two loves are his children)

They're my two loves
And they go tweet, tweet, tweet, tweet, tweet, tweet, tweet, tweet like little birds
They're my two loves

(his children are his two loves that go about the house tweeting in an air of love)

Count them one, two loves
Count them one, two loves
Which is my face
Which is a building
Which is on fire, on fire

(he counts them one, two loves bc they are twins)

When my love
Stands next to your love
I can't define love
When it's not love

(same as above, he is so in love , he's enmeshed in it)

It's not love
It's not love
Which is my face
Which is a building
Which is on fire

(same, his family life is on fire, he's in love w himself bc of it and he is so in love akin to flames. i suppose he lives with his twin flame)

U2 – Raised by Wolves Lyrics 5 years ago
to understand bono's lyrics you have to understand he was raised by political strife and a religious upbringing.

the wolves symbolize people that are inclined to hate by belief whereas their victims are the people that were raised by them.

so if you have a family member or guardian that is like a wolf, you can get into trouble bc of your family bc you are more sheepish.

makes sense since if you are raised by a shepherd then they will take care of your sheepish self that is more humble and good but if your raised by wolf society or a wolf family your probably in jeopardy.

the whole wolf stereotype comes from the teachings of jesus. wolves in sheep clothing, meaning they mingle in society as "good people" but inwardly are raveounous wolves.

Arcade Fire – Wake Up Lyrics 5 years ago
He is saying children need to be guided. They have no guides. They are told things that are lies when they are children. Its the blind leading the blind. And the narrator is saying its now time for his death and he is going wherever they are telling him to go and now he wants to warn people on earth but its not even heard from people on earth bc they are living while he is now dead.

All he is saying is hold your mistake up (sin or fear of sin or reasons to be in heaven or not) and the lies they tell you about heaven and hell and really guide yourself about where your going after you die bc no one is preparing you for it but you.

Their hearts are torn while their growing up and they end up in a lightning bolt place. Because they couldn't heal themselves or guide themselves .

Very true .. proud to have an arcade fire photo on my wall :)

Modest Mouse – The Ground Walks, with Time in a Box Lyrics 5 years ago
a laugh at humanity's attempt at peace and a way out of this existence. modest mouse feels like humans are experiments in a rat cage. and that what else is there but ...

"greased all the roads" means they've been there and done that
"we're floating in the light" could be rebirth to him or afterlife?.
"we're gonna break the borders" humans will break down the barriers limited on them
"we're gonna travel time" time travel is a possibly way out of this existence

he's kind of saying is this all there is? the way the singers are singing it sounds as if its redundant and there is nothing left to do.

it feels as if there is no joy in life.

he should write more about the experience of love in many forms. <3
