Electric Six – Down at McDonnellzzz Lyrics 13 years ago
The night shift at "McDonnellzzz" ends and just as the lock up a "gang" shows up and demands that they keep the place open.

But Dick Valentine is a little ambiguous:
"The leader's gonna make you party
Preventing you from departing
The leader is the party
The party is the leader's mind"

So it sounds like the "leader" is only one guy, a psycho, that's harassing the night shift guys.

Great song, catchy as hell!

Weird Al Yankovic – Dare To Be Stupid Lyrics 14 years ago
mc chris did a cover of this! HOLY SHIT!

Anyway, if you heard the band Devo you'd recognize the style immediately. The music video is also a rip off of Devo.

DragonForce – Heart of a Dragon Lyrics 14 years ago
I always hear "the four of us". That kinda made me think of Dungeons & Dragons:

"Proud and so glorious standing the four of us
Our swords will shine bright in the sky
When united we come to the land of the sun
With the heart of a dragon we ride"

Like, we four adventurers standing together against the common evil or whatever.

I've been playing too much Neverwinter Nights 2...

Bloodhound Gang – The Inevitable Return Of The Great White Dope Lyrics 15 years ago
"The bona fide lo-fi high-octane philosopher"
"Genius with a penis the few the proud the me"
"I'm hard to come by like a straight guy working at Starbucks"
"Thank the thinkers that think they thunk the thoughts that theorized"
"I am the Angel of Def with my rhymes against humanity"
"One thumb on the pulse of the nation, one thumb in your girlfriend's ass"
"I struck gold but never took it for granite that's how I planned it so can it"

Lines like these make me think Jimmy Pop Ali is one of the few great songwriter left alive. This song leaves me in awe every time...

Rage Against the Machine – Beautiful World (Devo cover) Lyrics 15 years ago
TheProphetOfTruth, read the lyrics. See the last line? It flips the whole meaning of the song. Devo did that on purpose, but they made their song very upbeat and happy. So it decieved people into thinking that they're singing about a happy place, but RIGHT at the end the flip the meaning and say "To you it's great, we think it's shit".

And TornadoNHS? Lennon wouldn't write a song like this, this is pure Devo all the way

Electric Six – I Invented The Night Lyrics 15 years ago
Electric Six uses a reoccuring theme on their first CD which is men abusing thier power. This one is about a rich guy promising a girl fame and fortune, but she gets dragged into a more sinister business (either porn or stripping) where he threatens her to keep her where she is.

Electric Six – Naked Pictures (Of Your Mother) Lyrics 15 years ago
Sigh...
It's obviously about a person blackmailing a girl to sleep with him.

"Well nobody wants to burn in hell
But everybody's got a soul to sell"

That's pointing to the fact that no one WANTS to do anything wrong, but people will do anything for cash.

"When i was young my mama gave me some advice
She said boy don't you know everybody's got a price?"

His mother taught him from a young age that everyone is exploitable. This is where his mom's dialoge ends.

"I make lots of money, I make more money than you
I drive around in my limo that's what I was born to do
And i might like you better if we fought together
If its not to be noted i got somethin' better for ya"

Personally, I think is "I'd like you better if we fucked together" because this guy is obviously a rich asshole and "fought" doesn't make sense in this context. He drives around in his limo looking for people to exploit, showing that he doesn't slink around in the dark. He's proud of what he does cause it makes him powerful.

"Naked pictures, of your mother
Naked pictures of your mother
Naked pictures, of your mother GO!"

He's blackmailing the person by threatening them with naked pictures of their mother. Now, how would a person get hold of naked pictures of someone's mother?! He said in the first verse: "everybody's got a soul to sell", implying he first paid your mother to pose naked for him, now he's using these pictures to get to you.

"I dropped the bomb on Japan
I was a hostage in Iran
I'm the ugly american
Now, I'm a government man
A government man!"

So now we see where he gets his contacts and money from. He's a CIA or FBI guy that's abusing his power for his own enjoyment. He's a war hero, so you can't get him arrested and he knows it. So now he's blackmailing you with naked pictures so that he can do whatever he wants with you.

Electric Six – Jimmy Carter Lyrics 15 years ago
Definately my favourite song off their new album. I think it's all obscure referances to the presidents and what they did with their time in the office. But I haven't heard it enough to know for sure...

Gnarls Barkley – Transformer Lyrics 15 years ago
Isn't Dangermouse a bit of a nerd? I think this is also a bit of a referance to the old TV show and toys.

"Im a microchip off the old block
You know not but I was a robot"

Not saying the whole thing is about that, but I think that's where the insperation comes from...

Devo – Working In The Coal Mine Lyrics 15 years ago
Gotta dissagree with you there. Devo's all about "Joe Average" and how the common man is devolving. I think this song suggests that man isn't living anymore, we've become like ants who work to make money. Ironically, the miner in this song doesn't even spend this money on having fun, because he's too tired.

Evolution? Nay sir, DEVOlution!

Men Without Hats – The Safety Dance Lyrics 15 years ago
Exactly, it's about slamdancing. The singer talks about how his girl should leave her friends in the moshpit "'Cause your friends don't dance and if they don't dance, Well, they're no friends of mine"
The whole thing about "safety dance" is sort of "anti-slam dancing", how if you did the "Safety Dance" you wouldn't take someone's eyeball out ("everybody look at your hands" = Watch where you're dancing!)
I don't see anything about nukes in there...

Martika – Toy Soldiers Lyrics 15 years ago
I wouldn't put drugs to this one either, but the interpretation does make sense. I think this is one of those songs (like the Police's song that's about a stalker) that people don't really think about, which has a really good underlying meaning.

submissions
Daft Punk – Technologic Lyrics 15 years ago
TwistedElegance, you must not get laid at all if you gotta say stuff like that!

Anyway, I think the song's about man's mentality these days, that you can "Buy it, use it, break it, fix it...ect" without caring for it. We've lost our more loving side and become cold because technology has replaced the need for real people...

Devo – Praying Hands Lyrics 15 years ago
The song's lyrics are wrong, it should be:

you got your left hand
you got your right hand
you got your left hand
you got your right hand

With the left hand diddling
while the right hand goes to work
I said the left hand's diddling, now
while the right hand goes to work

you got both hands
you got both hands
you got praying hands
you got praying hands

they pray for no man
they pray for no man
o.k....relax...
assume the position
go into doggie submission

wash your hands three times a day
always do what your mother did say
brush your teeth in the following way
wash your hands three times a day

you got your left hand
you got your right hand
you got your left hand
you got your right hand

With the left hand diddling
while the right hand goes to work
I said the left hand's diddling, now
while the right hand goes to work

you got both hands
you got both hands
you got praying hands
you got praying hands

they pray for no man
they pray for no man

(roll over, play dead)
(get spiritual enlightenment)

o.k....relax...
assume the position
go into doggie submission

wash your hands three times a day
always do what your mother did say
brush your teeth in the following way
wash your hands three times a day

And the song's about masterbation. Easy as that.

Gorillaz – Clint Eastwood (Phi Life Cypher Version) Lyrics 15 years ago
Um, in the back story to Russel it says that he was in a massive drive-by, where all his friends' souls went into Russel's head. So I think the Gorillaz guys were playing with this idea of Russel having alot of DIFFERENT rappers stuck in his head, which would explain the lack of the blue guy on "Demon Days"

Devo – Come Back Jonee Lyrics 15 years ago
This is SUCH a good song, how can no one have commented? Anyway, I heard on the commentary on the DEVO DVD that this song's about JFK, a subject Devo often write about in their songs. I don't really know what the pawnshop bit is about, but I know that in the music video, Devo wears what they describe as "Nazi Cowboy Suits" which gives the song a sinister tone. Maybe the song is about JFK using his "Guitar" (his charasmatic speeches and his political power) to become famous. The Datsun could be his presidency while the "semi" (Which can be a truck or a semi-automatic rifle) killed him because of it... I really like this song

Iggy Pop – The Passenger Lyrics 15 years ago

Rob Zombie – Pussy Liquor Lyrics 15 years ago
I think this is all from Earl's perspective. All his children were insane, so he goes down to Pussy Liquor to "get fucked up and fuck up with you". Then, one night in a drunken stupour he gets an idea to rid the world of "his" evil children. Burn the house down...

Rob Zombie – The Scorpion Sleeps Lyrics 15 years ago
OMG! Anyone think of KISS when you heard this song? Anyway, it's a Zombie song, so if there's a meaning it's REALLY cryptic. I think it's just to say how badass he is. But I also think it's probably got to do with his car too, with Zombie anything is possible.

I love the Educated Horses CD, it's a nice change. This is my favourite track, it's so catchy and fun to dance to!

Mindless Self Indulgence – Unsociable Lyrics 15 years ago
"I've never had too much
I've never had to lie
I've never had to sacrifice
my life"

Meaning: He's never had a life that was too challenging, things were easy until he became different.

"One of these shapes is not like the others "
Meaning: Common question on aptitude and IQ tests, suggesting that HE is not like the others in his surroundings.

"I'm Socially Unacceptable, Unexceptional, Unsociable"
Meaning: He broke from his unchanging world to become socially outcast, but at the same time people still speak to him because by breaking out he joined another stereotype.

All in all I think it means that he's fustrated that he can't get rid of stereotypes, by freeing himself of one he becomes another, Socially Unacceptable, but unexceptional stereotype.

Polly Paulusma – Mea Culpa Lyrics 15 years ago
I really like this song, I think she's talking about Jesus, but more personally I think she's talking to a Christian that has left her life. So she sorta blames his religion for what she knows is her fault ("Mea Culpa" means "My own fault" in Latin)

Fischerspooner – Emerge Lyrics 15 years ago
This is my old friendship group's "PARTY SONG". Every party we had, there was only one rule: If this song plays, you HAVE to dance. Even if you're REALLY drunk and sick. Good times.

But I got to thinking about it over the last few years.

"Hyper mediocrity" is the state all humans are in at the moment. Our lives are filled with things that seem interesting, but are actually boring and monotonous. Fischerspooner is saying (with sarcasm, I hope) that you don't need to be special, that you must be what everyone expects from you, because it all means nothing in the end.
The distorted screaming also shows the pain that people who like be extravagant feel when forced to be like everyone else.

That's my opinion.

Ministry – Bloodlines Lyrics 15 years ago
Wow, how can no one have said anything about this song yet?! I love it! The game where it comes from is about vampires, so I think it's about becoming a vampire and realising that your humanity is gone, you see people as food just because of the cursed bloodlines that have infected you.

Awesome game, had horrible bugs that ruined it and the art was a little bit shite, but the story was amazing...

The Offspring – Me & My Old Lady Lyrics 15 years ago
It's obviously about an odd couple, one you wouldn't normally put together, but they understand each others needs and sexual desires that they don't mind what you think about them, they're happy.

Also, they're not married, hence the part where when one of them tells the other that they love them they're too scared to admit that they love them too. But they understand each other, so they don't force it. It's the type of relationship I wish I had..

Gorillaz – Sound Check (Gravity) Lyrics 15 years ago
I think it's about pleading to someone about something you know is futile.

Personally, I think this is Damon Albarn telling his fans hat this is just a re-hash of his original idea that he had with Blur. Now that Blur's famous, he doesn't feel like he's having fun anymore, so now he's using Gorillaz to play around. And if Gorillaz messes up, it doesn't touch Blur's reputation...
