Under The Influence Of Giants – Mama's Room Lyrics 12 years ago
I think the guy in this song is depressed and lonely, because he feels that something missing in his life:

"Something's got my fear,
And then won't get through my head,
But there's something missing,
There's something missing here....I can't sleep alone,"

and he tries to make himself happier by doing things that cause instant gratification. He goes to parties in order to fill his "void" for a mere couple of hours:

"Here I go again,
React without a plan, oh,
...Everybody dance, everybody feel right,"

The lines that make it most obvious that hes trying to find an easy way to satisfation are:
I like the pain that comes out at night,
Everybody dance, everybody feel right,
I like the pain that comes out at night,
Everybody dance, everybody feel right."

At parties everyone is realeasing their stress, their "pain" with others by partiying.

Margot & the Nuclear So and So's – Skeleton Key Lyrics 12 years ago
I stand corrected, tammalicious925. Great interpretations on this song.

Musiq Soulchild – Time Lyrics 12 years ago
Although this could obviously be viewed as a love song, I think this could also be seen as a song about respecting time as a teacher.

Margot & the Nuclear So and So's – Skeleton Key Lyrics 13 years ago
First of all, I just want to say that I'm am honored to be the first to talk about Margot's lyrics, and song for that matter--what beautiful music this band makes!

Here are the facts laid down as I see them within this song:

A man cheated on his girlfriend ("iI did a sick, sick thing to my love. My lack of loyalty, it swallowed her up.") when he raped a girl ("I did a horrible thing to that girl.I bred my misery and drowned it in her.
And she got me high,And I hardly noticed there were tears in her eyes") . From these lyrics, it suggests that the man is gay, or is at least bi, and depressed as he sings: "She left her man unattended to me.
" and "And I miss you less and less everyday.
This stream of whisky helps to wash you away."
I'm not exactly sure what a skeleton key is within the context of this poem except that this key isn't special or original...maybe a key that can fit in any lock or even a key that doesn't fit within any lock at all...I also don't know what it means within the lyrics of "you've gotta let me know" which is repeated many times over in the song...

But, to go off on a different direction, Margot and the nuclear so & so's have written very beautifully honest and original lyrics that entertain yet depress the listeners within this song. It's very brilliant.

I think the lyrics are missing a line after "cause you know that ain't ture", but I cannot tell what Margot sings, so i cannot help out with the lyrical content. And I think it's "and she got me HARD, and i hardly noticed there were tears in her eyes".

Oasis – Wonderwall Lyrics 13 years ago
btw...has anyone heard the Ryan adams version? It's beautiful. Check it out kids.

Oasis – Wonderwall Lyrics 13 years ago
I was thinking that maybe "wonderwall" could be thought as a wall. Not a wall as in a boundary, but giving a sense of security. So wonderwall could be translated into a guardian for security for life in which one loves.

Also, what does the line "Today is gonna be the day that they're gonna throw it back to you" mean? It doesn't seem to make sense in the context of "you're my friend and i secretly love you" deal.

A Perfect Circle – The Nurse Who Loved Me (Failure cover) Lyrics 14 years ago
Here's a little different interpretation:

The nurse IS the drugs. He believes the nurse, or the drugs, are making him feel better, as that is what a nurse is supposed to do (although this is a different kind of nurse i must say).

"I'm taking her home with me all dressed in white
She's got everything I need pharmacy keys
She's falling hard for me I can see it in her eyes
She acts just like a nurse with all the other guys "

I'm taking her home with me all dressed in white translates into, i'm bringing home the drugs (drugs... pills that are white, cocaine... your choice)
"She's got everything I need pharmacy keys" as in the drug is doing everything he 'needs' (addiction) and is maybe even leading into other addictions to other drugs (pharmacy keys)

She's falling hard for me I can see it in her eyes: no clue... doesn't fit with my theory.

She acts just like a nurse with all the other guys: THe drugs do the same thing to his friends, other people etc, creating the same effect, and maybe love for this drug.

Say hello to all the apples on the ground: Maybe his father/mother did drugs (apple doesn't fall far from the tree), or some sibling taught him this addiction of "the nurse"
They were once in your eyes but you sneezed them out while sleeping: Maybe effects of the drugs... who knows.. this doesn't quite fit either...
Say hello to everything you've left behind: maybe the people you've let down when taking a drug and the dreams...
It's even more a part of your life now that you can't touch it: the deep addiction..

THe song sounds dreamy and stuck in a state, as the lyrics suggest.

This could also be interpreted as a love addiction song. He is so in love with a woman, who is helping him "spiritually heal" from his last girlfriend, but maybe she's a "whore" because he's laying down facing the floor, knowing maybe this won't help and she's a nurse with "all the other guys"

This is just my interpretation. Take it as you like

Coldplay – We Never Change Lyrics 14 years ago
I believe that I have a completely different interpretation of this song from everyone else, that it actually might seem bogus as it does not go along with any other themes on coldplays cd. Yes, In a way, I do believe that when he speaks of “I wanna live ina wooden house” that he wants to live simply. If any of you have studied Thoreau, he was a man who took simplicity to the extremes and left a materialistic life and lived in a wooden house. But this wooden house can also be interpreted a completely different way. Eveyone rmembers the saying of the glass house, correct? That friends can “shatter” this unsupposrtive place – your feelings, your soul etc. But living in a wooden house would block out all the people who have hurt you and only let in your “true” friends, no matter how little there are. What this does is helps one live in happiness, “live where the sun comes up”. Furthermore, to say “we never change, do we? No no. We never learn, do we?” is to give up changing who you are, which is what many people do. TO be your true self – to qit trying to change, is happiness as you accept fully who you are. As you accept who you are, you do not change for anyone, so your true friends are revealed in your eyes. So, if you were your true self, seeing only your true friends, living in a wooden house where only the true come, makes sense to me. “I wanna live life and always be true”.
