Them Crooked Vultures – No One Loves Me & Neither Do I Lyrics 12 years ago
A few things... I don't think we're analyzing all of Josh's poetry to it's maximum potential. THe reason I love QOTSA lyrics and TCV lyrics especially is because Josh adds amusing plays on words and double entendres in all his songs. A few things that haven't been mentioned that I thought I should bring to your attention...

"you can't always do right, you can always do what's LEFT" (instead of "right" or correct. Just a little funny play on words he threw in)

"So I told her I was trash, so she winked & laughed and said I already know..." Earlier in the song he told her he was rich so he could convince her to have sex with him. Here, he's admitting he was full of shit. But she said she already knew so obviously she didn't care anyways. This song is entirely about have sex for the fun of it and giving into your desires.

"I know how to burn with passion
Hold nothing back for future ration
Give all you are, do not make haste
Savor every single taste you get
Cut

I know how to beat control
Do opposite of what you're told
Quick to react, to break the box
Turn on queue, as your cell door locks
Behind you

I know how to be lost in lust
Not because you should, but because you must
It burns white hot, and so clouds the mind
This lightning strike isn't always kind"

This part of the song is so deep! I guess in a nutshell, he's saying not to get caught up in relationships that aren't going anywhere or you'll feel trapped (in a cell for example)
The last stanza is my favourite: Lust is a natural thing that is completely uncontrollable. Whether you control your actions or not is something completely different. Lust clouds your judgement and makes it impossible to make decent choices and it's not always a good thing to have because you can't control when you lust or who you lust for.

TCV!! \m/

Queens of the Stone Age – Misfit Love Lyrics 13 years ago
Well, it's been al ittle bit since I posted for this song. Typically, I wouldn't feel the need to post again but wow... This song has totally transformed for me. It's gone from a catchy little tune to my own personal THEME SONG! What an awesome song that seemes to just exude a sense of narcicissm. I love it.

Andromeda – Star Shooter Supreme Lyrics 13 years ago
It's a fun "rocking out" song, I agree. Makes me feel like I should put on a leather jacket and some shades and beat the shit out of someone who deserves it lol. A song for B.A.M.F.s

Andromeda – In The Deepest Of Waters Lyrics 13 years ago
Wow... Way more people need to discover this band. Andromeda rocks. This is my favourite song off "Extension of the Wish" (yes I'm well aware that most people find this to be the worst song on the album but whatever. I think it's great). Being a guitarist myself, I'm in awe everytime I hear an Andromeda guitar solo. Not sure how he does it but... bravo. All power to you.

Thornley – Beautiful Lyrics 14 years ago
The most "Beautiful" rock song ever written. This song is cursed for me. I spent a whole day crying to it after a big failure in life. Listening to it still gives me the shivers and returns all those feelings to me. Every rose has it's thorns I guess...

KMFDM – Megalomaniac Lyrics 14 years ago
This song kicks so much fuckin' ass. There's no other way to describe how painfully bad ass it is. It can be used for anything from racing, to beating the shit out of some jerk, to fucking the living daylights out of somebody. It's fantastic.

I'm loving the dong references lol.

lol. Catch the sexual innuendo?
By the way, it's "We'll scratch THAT itch all over the floor"

Queens of the Stone Age – 3's & 7's Lyrics 14 years ago
The time signature has nothing to do with it. The song is in 4/4 time the whole way through. Thegreenwombat had something though. At the beginning and during the bass interlude, the drum plays 3 beats on the symbol and then 7. That's the only similarity I can find.

John Mayer Trio – Vultures Lyrics 14 years ago
This song is amazing. The chorus is so strong lyrically. I love it. However, I don't agree with the interpretation. I think he's refering to the media. Paparazzi and the like. The second verse is what gives it away. He compares them to vultures saying how they are looking for a "kill". They get famous and get money by bringing up dirt on someone famous (power is made by power being taken), but they haven't found any on John so they're "trying to ride it out" because they haven't gone this long without finding at least a little bit of dirt on someone.

Thornley – Bright Side Lyrics 14 years ago
the intro to this song is amazing. The Acoustic guitar adds a different flavour of heavy than the usual blazing metal distortion that comes right after.

Queens of the Stone Age – Who Will Be The Next In Line Lyrics 14 years ago
I wonder what possessed them to cover this song... I heard the original right after the QOTSA one. It's not all that interesting... Mind you, for some reason, Josh Homme likes Tom Waits. Ever seen him live? That man is crazy...

Charlie Daniels Band – The Devil Went Down to Georgia Lyrics 14 years ago
The Charlie Daniel's Band version is really an interesting original. And the country roots vs. Rock theme seems really on track. I enjoyed the fiddle solos probably because I find myself strangely drawn to celtic music. Not to mention, beign a guitarist, it interests me that a violin is tune exactly the same as a guitar, just backwards. G D A E.
On that note...
Nobody messes with Steve Ouimette! I don't care if Primus covered this song... When Steve Ouimette did it, I was in awe. I (obviously enough) heard it on guitar hero 3 and was absolutely amazed. This easily rivals or surpasses Buckethead's "Jordan".

Queens of the Stone Age – Battery Acid Lyrics 14 years ago
While I believe this is probably the worst song on Era Vulgaris (don't get me wrong, the CD's great!) it does get catchy and tolerable after a few listens. That's what I think is the hardest part about enjoying the music on the album. You have to get used to it. I don't think everyone truly understands that. Listen to it, full-length, two or three times and then see if you like it.

Queens of the Stone Age – In The Fade Lyrics 14 years ago
Mark was definitely the right choice to sing this song. I couldn't see Josh singing this and giving it the same effect (meaning the melodic, dreamy effect), thought his backup vocals certainly add to the song.
Great song.

Anarchy Club – Collide Lyrics 14 years ago
This song was described on guitar hero as something like a love song for the end of the world. Considering one of the band memebers is actually one of the makers of the game, I would come to think that they'd have this right. So my vote's for that one.

Incubus – Dig Lyrics 14 years ago
I thought of my long-term girlfriend the first time I heard this song. We've supported each other through some really thick problems and she's really helped me to realize things about myself when my ego got too bloated or I was too pig-headed to realize what I was doing. Pride gets in the way. You can get burried in it. But, she'll always be there to dig me out. I think it's the same for him.

Queens of the Stone Age – Better Living Through Chemistry Lyrics 14 years ago
I really like the bongo drums. I think they really differentiate this song from others. Not to mention, the opening guitar and bass riffs are extremely catchy. I think I'd have to agree with uncletommy in terms to the meaning of the song. Josh pretty much said it for himself.

Queens of the Stone Age – Sick, Sick, Sick Lyrics 14 years ago
Josh is crazy. I mena, I love the guy, he's got talent, but he's flat out crazy. Where does he come up with this stuff? I think that guitar chord is tied with the main chord in "Times Like These" by the Foo Fighters for "the ugliest chord ever used in a song". *Shakes head* But then again, just like in Times Like These (which is also a great song by the way) the chord seems to work.
The Song seems to have some BDSM undertones to it, and considering who Josh is married to, are you suprised? Brody looks like she would KILL a man. But she's a good looking woman nonetheless. "The tongue is a twist, perpetual bliss" Unprotected sex, maybe? Hmm...

Queens of the Stone Age – Make It Wit Chu Lyrics 14 years ago
Josh said in an interview that this was one of the best sex songs he'd ever been associated with and that's why he put it on Era Vulgaris. It's so different. From the feel and sound of it, it almost seems like and new version of an old song. It's sexy though. It gets the point across and I would not hesitate to have sex to it lol. The Guitar solo, as simple as it may sound, is actualy quite inventive but at the same time, very Josh. Check 3:18 - 3:30 that's the shit I'm talking about. Well done QOTSA (as always).

Queens of the Stone Age – Turnin' On The Screw Lyrics 14 years ago
I was thinking about the actions performed by a screw and I took into account what rabbithowl said about the expression meaning making things worse. Though I've never heard that expression before, I can see how it came about. A screw turns and as it turns, it drives itself deeper into whatever it's lodged in. So if you're turning on a screw lodged in trouble, you're driving yourself deeper into trouble, I guess.

Queens of the Stone Age – Misfit Love Lyrics 14 years ago
This song is really strange... But in an addictive kind of way. I'm not really sure what it is about this song that I like so much. It's just so weird, it's good. *Shrugs* I thin kthe key to figuring this meanign out lies in whatever it is that Michael Shuman is growling in the background durign the second verse. I can't quite figure out what it is he saying and it's driving me nuts! I think it's something like
"I need a crown,
A crown,
I need a crown,
I want a crown"
Or something to that effect. Does anyone know what he's saying? I saw QOTSA's performance on the Henry Rollins show and you can see Michael saying somethign but I sitll can't make it out. Some one help me out!

Dave and the Foo Fighters never cease to amaze me with their musical brilliance. Everythign from their strange chords chord structures, to their vocal harmonies, to their lyrics. Fantastic, brilliant, powerful. "The Pretender" is all these things and more. I'm sure the entire album will have that same flare.

Count Zero – Sail Your Ship By Lyrics 14 years ago
I can't believe there aren't any coments on this song! I mean, how long has Guitar Hero been out? This song is brilliant! Count Zero has to be one of the most unique bands in exsistance. They seem to have this robotic, dreamy sound that makes every song seem like an acid trip.
As for the song's meaning, I believe it's making reference to when the Europeans landed in the new world. It seems to be told from the aboriginal's point of view, explaining how the Europeans acted when they arrived and their relations with them. Again, awesome song!

Queens of the Stone Age – Leg Of Lamb Lyrics 15 years ago
What the hell does this song mean? The Lyrics seem so random and the ideas and pictures portrayed seem to change from verse to verse. I'm most curious about the meaning of the bridge and the last verse... "I'd get up if I knew I fell? Did he mean "fell from grace"?

Queens of the Stone Age – Monsters In The Parasol Lyrics 15 years ago
I'm not really sure if I agree with everyone. I mean, the song's great and everything but I feel there's a more direct meaning to the "Monster in your Parasol" line. I'm not really sure what it is exactly but I think Josh meant something specific by it. Not just "Oh looky there! I'm on drugs and I'm seeing monsters!" But I do not deny that there is a strange sexual implication within the song.

Big Wreck – Ladylike Lyrics 15 years ago
WOW! Nobody has commented on this song? That's rather unfortunate given its high calibre. It's a fantastic song. At first I thought it was about women having ot be obediant but now thatI look at the lyrics, I'm not really sure. If anyone DOES decide to comment on this song, perhaps they could help me out by shedding some light on the subject.

Count Zero – Radium Eyes Lyrics 15 years ago
lol Thank god for guitar hero. I've been introduced to so much much that I never would have listened to because of it. This song is a perfect example of that. So a robo love song set during the phillipines war. That's an odd concept.

Drist – Arterial Black Lyrics 15 years ago
This is a great song but the "waking up at the beginning of the earth" idea doesn't seem to hit home with me. The sinking ship line is the one that throws it off... I think it's a general look at one of the bad sides of life, e.g."Along the way we learn things too hard" -- Throughout life, the only way to learn is the hard way.
