U2 – Exit Lyrics 12 years ago
Bono said, "This is a song about a religious man who became a very dangerous man when he couldn't work out the mystery, on the hands of love."

submissions
Radiohead – Creep Lyrics 12 years ago
In the book "The Radiohead Vision Creeps Onto Airwaves" it said the song was inspired by a girl that Thom Yorke had followed around who showed up unexpectedly during a show by the band. Although, I've also heard that Yorke said it was about a drunk man trying to get the attention of a beautiful woman he desires.

submissions
U2 – Exit Lyrics 12 years ago
I heard that Robert John Bardo (the murderer of actress Rebecca Schaeffer) was inspired to kill by listening to this song. I'd say the song is about a man that loves a woman in a very dark way.

submissions
Blindside – Caught a Glimpse Lyrics 12 years ago
I have no idea what the song is about and the part that really gets to me is the "I'm ready to give you my heart". Is this about a girl or religion or what?

submissions
Megadeth – In My Darkest Hour Lyrics 12 years ago
I read on wikipedia that David Ellefson co wrote the lyrics, I wonder if that has to do with the double meanings. It also said that the girl he wrote it about was named Diana and that Mustaine wrote several songs about her. Does anyone know what other songs are about Diana?

submissions
Coheed and Cambria – The Camper Velourium I: Faint of Hearts Lyrics 13 years ago
At the Neverender DVD Claudio said that he wrote this at the time he was going through a breakup and thus brought us the Al the Killer character.

submissions
Coheed and Cambria – Wake Up Lyrics 13 years ago
In the documentary "The Fiction Will See the Real" Claudio talks about how his girlfriend had broken up with him and he said that he was so into the relationship that he wrote this and played it for her over the phone.

submissions
Nirvana – Radio Friendly Unit Shifter Lyrics 13 years ago
Whether Kurt wanted there to be meanings to his songs or not, I think that people can still take their own meanings to his or anyone's songs. To me this song has something to do with unrequited feelings or jealousy with lines like "I love you for what I am not, I do not want what I have got" and "Bi-polar opposites attract".

submissions
R.E.M. – Losing My Religion Lyrics 13 years ago
Michael Stipe said the song is about "someone who pines for someone else. It's unrequited love, what have you." I try to see it that way by looking at the lyrics but I can't really make it out...

submissions
Megadeth – In My Darkest Hour Lyrics 14 years ago
After listening to the song again, I'm trying to figure out if Dave tried to use a double meaning with Cliff's death and this girl he's referring to in the song...

submissions
Silverchair – Pop Song For Us Rejects Lyrics 14 years ago
Years back I thought that this song was about the narrator talking about himself in the second person and how the drugs and addictions have ruined his life. I wonder what Daniel wrote this about though...

submissions
Mortal Love – All The Beauty Lyrics 14 years ago
I heard that this album with the same name as this song is the start of a trilogy. So I'm assuming that Cat is still with this person she's referring to in this song? The lyrics are kinda poetic.

submissions
Death – The Philosopher Lyrics 14 years ago
Does anyone know if Chuck wrote this about someone in particular?

submissions
Marilyn Manson – Tourniquet Lyrics 14 years ago
Also, someone on wikipedia posted that this song that "the image this song conveys is that of the the main character in a world of sorrow and self-pity, prior to his transformation into the Antichrist."

submissions
In Flames – Only For The Weak Lyrics 14 years ago
It seems like a romantic relationship to me but the first set of lyrics are confusing to me. Why does the narrator feel guilty when this person he speaks of laughs?

submissions
Silverchair – Petrol & Chlorine Lyrics 14 years ago
Combining two ideas that said Daniel referred to the song's meaning. I can see it being about someone who doesn't believe in them self and considers suicide as a way out.

submissions
Mortal Love – I Want To Die Lyrics 14 years ago
I've never heard an unrequited love song (if you can call it a love song) that's as straight forward as this. From what I gather, it's about the narrator who's only motivation in life is to be with someone who loves another and I guess this is their suicide note.

submissions
Sevendust – Black Lyrics 14 years ago
I think that trebleheart is on to something with black being on the lines of goth, never thought of that and it's a good point.

submissions
Marilyn Manson – Antichrist Superstar Lyrics 14 years ago
Can anyone tell me why the lines that start with "prick your finger it is done..." is also in the song "Cryptorchid"?

submissions
Marilyn Manson – Tourniquet Lyrics 14 years ago
"I've always had these dreams about making a girl out of all these pieces of prosthetic limbs, and then taking my own hair and teeth that I saved from when I was a kid and very ritualistically creating this companion." ("She made of hair and bone and little teeth and things I cannot speak.") - Marilyn Manson

I always thought he was trying to make/find the perfect woman or person and you can never do this because the person you love is always the person that feels they're better than you.

submissions
Marilyn Manson – Slutgarden Lyrics 14 years ago
I agree with what everyone has been saying but what's up with the lines "I memorize the words to the porno movies
This is a new religion to me", does it mean that all that matters in porn is everyone gets laid and that's how this person's relationships always go?

submissions
Nirvana – Smells Like Teen Spirit Lyrics 14 years ago
I don't know if this has been said before but in the book "Heavier Than Heaven", the author says that this song can't be about anyone other than Kurt's ex Tobi Vail. I felt that this could be true because she had to do with the inspiration with the name because of that deodorant or whatever.

submissions
Crowbar – Existence Is Punishment Lyrics 14 years ago
I don't know if he's referring to a girl or just a friend/loved one but this one is certainly about betrayal and giving your all to someone who doesn't give the same back to you. Much like "All I Had (I Gave)", another great song by these guys

submissions
Aerosmith – Dream On Lyrics 14 years ago
"Dream until your dreams come true", I'm not sure if someone actually put up the inspiration behind the song, all I know id Steven Tyler wrote it but I think that quote pretty much sums this up. If you want your dreams to come true you have to follow them until they are a reality.

submissions
Slipknot – Vermilion Lyrics 14 years ago
It does sound like he's a stalker but after reading the lyrics again I think it's because he feels that she's the only one that can make him feel this way that he does. Then at the end of the song he says that she's not real because he can't have her.

submissions
Metallica – Dyers Eve Lyrics 14 years ago
I read somewhere that this was inspired by Dyers Avenue in New York. I wonder what has to do with this whole parent issue.

submissions
Faith No More – R.V. Lyrics 14 years ago
After hearing this, reading the lyrics for the first time and seeing Aneurysm1985's comment with the Patton quote, I think it's about people who are doing things that they know or have been taught are wrong but do them anyway. And they hate themselves for doing them.

submissions
Faith No More – Land Of Sunshine Lyrics 14 years ago
Yes to all the comments and I've also heard that this was written by Patton during his "experiments" or whatever. I just think that anyone can relate to this whether they believe in Scientology or not. I think he's just asking is anything in life more than just dull or forced.

submissions
Nirvana – Aneurysm Lyrics 14 years ago
I've heard it's about either Tobi Vail or heroin but the lyrics are so short and weird (like most Nirvana songs) that I have no idea.

submissions
Megadeth – In My Darkest Hour Lyrics 14 years ago
Okay with all that's been said... I heard that the lyrics are inspired by an ex of Dave's and the music (which Dave wrote in one sitting) was inspired and I guess dedicated to Cliff Burton's memory. I also heard that James and Lars didn't notify Dave of Cliff's passing as well.

submissions
Deftones – Rx Queen Lyrics 14 years ago
It seems like Chino uses a lot of interesting words to get a point across in his songs. With this one, I feel like he's just trying to say that in relationships it's all about give and take and no one is perfect. So, it's cool if she "stings" him now and then because he's into her and that's alright.

submissions
Marilyn Manson – Fundamentally Loathsome Lyrics 14 years ago
I agree with emilbusman, I think of that movie Clerks II when Becky says that she loves her parents, her car, her dog, etc. but we can't say that we love in the romantic, flowers and candy way because "we know it's not real". I wonder what this song was inspired by. I know there's some kind of weird Alpha/Omega songs on this album.

submissions
Injected – Bloodstained Glass Lyrics 14 years ago
I feel like this is about a so called perfect relationship that suddenly goes wrong and the guy finds that being with her was like living in a fantasy. ("I haven't felt pain in so long I forgot I was alive") And the perfect situation he thought he was in was all a lie ("sure in this life the ironies can turn so true").

submissions
The Smashing Pumpkins – Quiet Lyrics 14 years ago
Looking at the lyrics again, I'm getting the feeling this is about how people can't find meaning and hope in there life. Now, I have no idea how this has to do with being quiet but I feel like he's trying to say he's metaphorically been sleeping all his life and woke up to all the lies he's been told and wants to go back to sleep.

submissions
Black Sabbath – Sabbra Cadabra Lyrics 14 years ago
I kinda see where Kaji13 is coming from with the stalker and rape thing but what about the lyrics Feel so happy since I met that girl, When we're making love it's something out of this world"? Other than that I think that we can all agree that this is about how love and sexual feelings can affect someone.

submissions
Faith No More – The Real Thing Lyrics 14 years ago
I agree with Snake Doctor with it not being about drugs, especially if he read it was about a relationship. I find it weird that he wrote it AFTER they broke up by looking at the lyrics again. To me, if it's inspired by a relationship, I feel that it's just about all the emotions (negative and positive) that one goes through while with that person you "think" is the one as they say.

Maybe Patton thought this girl he was dating was perfect and turned out to be something completely different.

submissions
Injected – Faithless Lyrics 14 years ago
About a person that's truly a nice person and wants nothing more than to stop playing the fool for people that are heartless.

submissions
Finger Eleven – One Thing Lyrics 14 years ago
With just the chorus in mind, I always felt that it was a guy giving up his past or something that haults the girl from being with him so he can be with her.

submissions
Marilyn Manson – I Put a Spell on You (Screamin' Jay Hawkins cover) Lyrics 14 years ago
I don't know if it's a stalker or if it's just someone so obsessed with the idea of wanting to controll someone they think they love.

submissions
Marilyn Manson – Coma White Lyrics 14 years ago
I agree with gia.eon and sometimes I feel that the whole M. Animals album is about how addiction and drugs and all that affect people. Interesting how the "last" song of the album is about how drugs never help or change problems, they just help you "runaway".

submissions
Marilyn Manson – The Nobodies Lyrics 14 years ago
I guess whoever his referring to is "forever dirt" and if it's the Columbine kids then I guess Manson is saying they did this because they felt like horrible people and became famous for being horrible people. Thus, becoming dirt and nothing forever even though "They know just who the kids are".

submissions
Marilyn Manson – Heart-Shaped Glasses (When the Heart Guides the Hand) Lyrics 14 years ago
He said on BBC radio one that "I was reading the book Lolita and it was something inspired by my current girlfriend Evan Rachel Wood who's obviously much younger than me, but having the sarcasm to make the point of that and showing up to visit me once wearing heart-shaped glasses which is the same as the Kubrick movie poster for the film Lolita and me saying what I say in the chorus of the song."

Pretty cool play on words "don't break my heart
And I won't break your heart-shaped glasses" I guess it's a give an take thing in the relationship or an understanding between two new lovers and the narrator is afraid of getting hurt and wants to make a deal with the new girl.

submissions
Nickelback – Old Enough Lyrics 14 years ago
I agree with sliverside, I always thought the "old enough" line was supposed to mean she's too young and possibly with what you were saying is the fact that the parents dissaprove of that because of it. Not like a huge age difference but one that's like she's not mature enough or something you know? Or possibly the parents making up reasons why they don't want him to date her and the stress it's caused him...

submissions
Killswitch Engage – This Fire Burns Lyrics 14 years ago
I agree with AndJustice4All because the lines in this song scream determination, it's a real uplifting song with great metal energy.

submissions
Black Sabbath – Megalomania Lyrics 14 years ago
Yeah I can see this about cocaine and trying to get away from an addiction to it, just using religious plays on words. I think it can be applied to any kind of addiction though...

submissions
Black Label Society – In This River Lyrics 14 years ago
Here's what Zaak said about the song - "The river is a metaphor for life in general, all the bullshit that you deal with from being a kid growing up. The whole thing's just about life and death."

submissions
Ozzy Osbourne – So Tired Lyrics 14 years ago
I agree with Phoebe with lines like "But you belong to another my love" and "While you're out with you know who". It's possible this is about the girl's husband rather than she's found a new guy instead of Ozzy.

submissions
The Smashing Pumpkins – Bullet with Butterfly Wings Lyrics 14 years ago
I think a lot of this has to do with them being put into the "grunge" genre just because they became popular at that time and because they had distortion and so on. Even though they weren't from Seattle and all that.

Also, Corgan had stated that the line "but can you fake it / for just one more show" refers to the Pumpkins headlining Lollapalooza tour.

submissions
The Smashing Pumpkins – Tonight, Tonight Lyrics 14 years ago
Someone told me that the Mellon Collie album is a concept album, does anyone know the story with that and how this song plays into that?

submissions
Skid Row – Breakin' Down Lyrics 14 years ago
Looking at the lyrics again, I'm getting the feeling that this song is about how the narrator loves another and wants to be with them but the person has a "reason" why they can't be together. Then the chorus is all how the narrator is pleading to show them how they won't let them down in the end.
