The Mountain Goats – Palmcorder Yajna Lyrics 14 years ago
I think the "scale maps of the ocean floor" are talking about the laugh lines on their faces.
That through all their laughter, their wrinkles sort of become a map for disaster?
The ocean floor meaning that they've been sucked into an abyss?
I dunno, I'm just pulling this outta my ass.
I just love this song regardless of the meaning.

Beulah – Warmer Lyrics 15 years ago
"And wait to a brand-new day"
should be
"And wake to a brand-new day"

"Lock's cards kids are okay"
should be
"Lost cause kids are okay"

And, this song is amazing.
Beulah, though they had their differences, were a poetic band.

Grandaddy – Elevate Myself Lyrics 15 years ago
I think this song is about elevating himself out of his current position in life.
Perhaps he wants stardom.
He wants to rise up from being an obscure indie rock band and be known.

The Comas – Invisible Drugs Lyrics 15 years ago
This song is track 1 on the soundtrack to your addiction.
I'm not kidding.
You don't realise these things when you are sober, but once the invisible drugs nabs you, it's got you.

"Fall asleep and dream of flyin'
Wakin' up to find us sinkin'"

Mogwai – Kids Will Be Skeletons Lyrics 15 years ago
the title of the song, to me, signifies children growing up and becoming the skeletons they hold in their closet. The lies that they've lived and the experiences they've had. It's all about growing up and becoming alone, like a skeleton.

The Mountain Goats – Palmcorder Yajna Lyrics 16 years ago
I think that this song could also be about trying to get sober off of the meth.
"Every couple minutes someone says he can't stand it any more"
Which could possibly be about the withdrawals that they're getting from the meth.

And when he says "Headstones climb up the hills" maybe he's saying that everyone gave up and then maybe overdosed and now they're all dying and being buried under the hills.
The headstones "climbing" could possibly mean that they're covering all the hills.
That alot of people are dying.
