Clutch – Wicker Lyrics 13 years ago
Actually, that should be "yoke" of faith, not "yolk" as in egg. A yoke is used to harness oxen to a plow or a cart.

Clutch – The Soapmakers Lyrics 13 years ago
I hear more echoes of "The Chemical Wedding of Christian Rosenkreutz" than Fight Club. How much mystical imagery was there in Fight Club?

The yolk of faith "splinters silent", not splatters.

Pop Will Eat Itself – Harry Dean Stanton Lyrics 13 years ago
I'm not sure what this song means, but it sounds good. In fact, it's probably my favorite song by the Poppies.

Pop Will Eat Itself – Axe Of Men Lyrics 13 years ago
After "Are you guilt-ridden?" comes "Is the real you hidden?"

Anyway, great song, just like pretty much everything these guys did from This is the Day until the end.

Parliament – Handcuffs Lyrics 13 years ago
Bondage.... You're a funny person, azkm.

This is a love song, a funny, non-serious love song. And a great love song at that.

Bananarama – Robert De Niro's Waiting Lyrics 13 years ago
"I don't want to feel your breathing, your touching"
"I never want this to happen to me"

Those lines sound like maybe, yeah, it's about rape. Which is what everyone says.

But what does "This is my only escape from it all, watching a film or a face on the wall" have to do with rape? That line, out of context, sounds like it's about teenage fantasies. How does it fit into the rest of the lyrics?

Raul Seixas – Rock Das Aranha Lyrics 14 years ago
This is really funny in Portuguese. He's singing about two lesbians, whose spiders (aranha, in Portuguese) are playing together, but his snake (cobra) wants to play, and he can't understand why they won't let him.

Manu Chao – Bixo Lyrics 14 years ago
I don't speak Galego (although everyone calls me "Galego", but that's a different story), but it's close enough to Portuguese. (And I'm not sure that this is Galego - I think it's more likely a mixture of French, Spanish, and Portuguese.) Mr. Chao further complicates things by peppering his lyrics with regional slang terms. The lyrics are, more or less:

The coconut bug entered my house
And my head started to shake
The coconut bug entered my house
And took with it all my illusions
Took with it all the "cartos", took with it my wife
It left torment, nothing to eat
The coconut bug entered my house
Looked me in the eyes, and the gentle one spoke
When the head gets fucked up
Until it's already exploding
When the head gets fucked up
The bug comes and gets it

The coconut bug entered my house
And my head started to shake
The coconut bug entered my house
And took with it all my illusions
Took with it all the "cartos", took with it my wife
It left torment, nothing to eat
The coconut bug entered my house
Looked me in the eyes, and the gentle one spoke

When the head gets fucked up
Until it's already exploding
When the head gets fucked up
The bug comes and gets it

Coconut bug sent me to kill
Coconut bug sent me to prison
Coconut bug cancelled/compromised liberty
Coconute bug left "maquelado"

The coconut bug entered my house
And took with it all my illusions
Took with it all the "cartos", took with it my wife
It left torment, nothing to eat
The coconut bug entered my house
Looked me in the eyes, and the gentle one spoke
