Regina Spektor – 8th Floor Lyrics 14 years ago
i don't speak russian, so i don't know how accurate it is, but i found this from lyricwiki.org:
Восьмой этаж
Восьмой этаж
Все высоко
Все надо мной

Вот идет домой
Карман пустой
Хоть милостыню просите
Три рубля на водку и буханку белого хлеба

А теперь, наверное, все дороже
И дорожки те забыты
А над ними паруса

Первый этаж
Я маленькая
Все высоко
Все надо мной

Восьмой этаж
Америка
Я высоко
Все подо мной
Я высоко...

translation!

The eighth floor
The eighth floor
Everything's high
Everything is above me

Somebody is coming home
Pocket is empty
You could go begging
It's three rubles for vodka and a loaf of white bread

But now, for certain, everything's more expensive
And the old paths are forgotten
Above them we set sail

The first floor
I'm really small
Everything's high
Everything is above me

The eighth floor
America
I am high
Everything is below me
I am high...

like regina said herself, this is about someone who wants liberate all of the artwork in a museum because they thought it was trapped, and in pain. she does not agree.

Regina Spektor – Edit Lyrics 14 years ago
I think feelthewaltz has pretty much summed this up. However, I think asteroid also has a valid point. I don't think it's a mistake that this song makes such ambiguous drug references (white lines, keeping it steady, not being ready for the lies, the song doctor robert by the beatles being about a doctor known for supplying celebrities with drugs). Basically, I think it IS about writing, but Regina has incorporated these drug references in there for some reason as well. I don't really know what it is, though.

The Smashing Pumpkins – Porcelina of the Vast Oceans Lyrics 16 years ago
I agree entirely with RainbowDemon. ALL of the lyrics make this song: not just a few lines that make sketchy references to drugs.

The way I see this song, it's about a girl. Through her he learns many important aspects of life. The ocean is deep, mysterious. Maybe Porcelina is a character he formulated in his mind to help him learn and comprehend various things in life?

This Mortal Coil – Song Of The Siren Lyrics 16 years ago
Firstly I'd just like to say that this song is actually titled "Song to the Siren" not "Song of the Siren", and it was also written and originally sung by Tim Buckley.

With that out of the way, I'd just like to say that this tribute to the song is beautifully and magnificently arranged and composed. It is so beautiful and lucious and just absolutely haunting and I personally believe it is better than Tim Buckley's version.

This song is being sung TO a siren (hence the title) and it's basically about a man who has been tempted by a woman who is rejecting the man now that he is hers. The references to the boat being broken and whatnot may be about how this man has thrown everything in his life away for this woman. In the end of the song the man is just in love with the woman and being refused and is sort of like "what do I do now?"

The Beatles – Across the Universe Lyrics 16 years ago
[this] is a beautiful song and lyrically it means a lot to me. i think it's about holding onto your innocence in the face of everything; it's such a celebration of life.
