Depeche Mode – Policy Of Truth Lyrics 6 months ago
To me, this feels like it could be sung at an abusive ex or someone in your life with Borderline Personality Disorder.

"Never again is what you swore the time before" - pwBPD have terrible impulse control. Also what someone might say to themselves after the pwBPD raging at them/mewling about being an abandoned victim.

Many pwBPD start out behaving "civilised" but then their mask slips of you make the mistake of getting close enough to them.
And the people in the pwBPD's life are left reeling at the push-me-pull-hou-I-hate-uou-you-can't-leave-me-or-i-will-die mentality and behaviour.

"Now you're not satisfied - - not listening to advice": pwBPD will look for any way to seem more.innocent, constantly in need of being saved and avoiding accountability. Maybe the following line is about how pwBPD's reality comes from (potential) childhood abuse or something?

And the harder the pwBPD's punching bag tries to get the truth out there, the harder the smearing campaigns/bad behaviour from the pwBPD. All because they choose to pretend to think they hate being ashamed.

Fuck Cluster B.

V V Brown – Shark In The Water Lyrics 6 months ago
If this isn't about Borderline Personality Disorder, I don't know what is...
The fairy tales, deliberately causing drama for attention and "love", the paranoia, winding people up and telling them it's not serious...

Unless you've been on the receiving end, it's impossible to understand what that's like. And even on the receiving end it's hard to understand.
I've got all tn education about Cluster Bs I need and then some, thanks. No need to pretend it's misunderstood or got stigma when Cluster Bs are doing quite well perpetuating their own stigma for no valid reason :)

Assemblage 23 – Smoke Lyrics 4 years ago
This song is intended to postapocalyptic, from what I can tell.

However, I can't help but think about how apt its lyrics are as a metaphor for the current political climate in the UK (and elsewhere).
To be a bit more literal about it, I can imagine scenes from the Blitz.

Please note that any opinions are mine and mine alone.

"Nothing ventured, nothing lost," - People are too afraid of change and radicalism. They're too afraid of losing what few comforts they currently have, even if they'd be better off under a less conservative government
"We paid the price, but at what cost?" - I don't know... the privatisation of the NHS? Disabled people being declared fit for work and having their financial lifelines cut; as they die at ATOS assessments or by their own hands or by the cuts the government is making?
We sold our future to the past." - voting for conservative parties and ignoring their pro-nazism

Accept a necessary doom,
Too easily and way too soon,
Ignore the wisdom we amassed." - I don't like to think of doom as necessary, but our current government just wants us to roll over and accept what they deem as necessary, even if it involves nuking the whole world.
In the meantime, leaders who question nuclear war and terrorism are completely ignored. The smear campaign that has been happening against Corbyn has been relentless and gleeful, and - I believe - totally unfair.

Breathe Carolina – Get Off Easy Lyrics 8 years ago
Now here's a slightly more personal, and somewhat jumbled, interpretation.

I'm a fan of Dangan Ronpa (Not played the game yet but I enjoy the anime and manga), and for some reason, I associate this song with Maizono, Naegi and Leon.
WARNING: SPOILERS AHEAD.
TO summarize it: 15 students are trapped in an academy for the elite. Students can only graduate by killing someone and NOT getting caught, and are forced to go through court-style trials in order to work out who the culprit is each time a student dies.
Naegi is the main character. Maizono and Leon are two of the first three to die. Maizono befriends Naegi & swaps rooms with him one night, allegedly because she's scared (But it's really because she's that desperate to get out of the academy and killing someone without being found out is the only way out. I'm sure she was legit scared as well, but anyway).

Throughout the rest of this interpretation, 苗= Naegi 舞=Maizono 怜 = Leon. This is just for abbreviation purposes, because I think that just typing L, N and M just as roman letters would be confusing. Apologies if Japanese characters don’t display properly on your computer.

Dangan Ronpa was originally a videogame but has also been an anime and a manga. If there’s not manga!/game!/anime! before a character’s name (e.g. game!怜 etc.), that means whatever it was happened in all three media, from what I remember.

* * * * *

"OK, cameras rolling. We are now in the residence... The first level living room area, wherein victim No. 1 was found. There is evidence of ransack in this room". (苗stepping into his room the morning after 舞 was killed, when everyone else notices she's not there for breakfast. There were slash marks all over the walls and floor from a sword.)

Shut the fuck up! (POSSIBLY 怜 going berserk during the trial, but that doesn't fit with the chronology of the rest of the song or the stories I feel it tells.)
• City girl with the pretty eyes (舞)
• Sittin' pretty in her disguise (Being an idol, 舞’s public persona is very chirpy and she doesn't really show negative emotions until after the students are forced to watch DVDs giving them a motive to kill).
• All alone and I don't know why (In the DVD 舞 is forced to watch, she’s performing with the rest of her group, but then the scene suddenly changes to them lying on the floor. 苗, however, only finds out that’s what 舞’s DVD is after her death.)
• Looking good like she don't try (舞 That’s an idol’s job, right?)
• Sweet talking to paralyze (舞 writes a note inviting 怜 into 'her' bedroom on the night of the room swap & the fact that any man would be interested in a female idol on some level is brought up at the trial; 舞 sweet-talking to Naegi in the subtlest way possible )
• Wouldn't know she’s a dirty dime (I reckon “Dirty dime” = prostitute in the actual song, but 舞is hardly sexy or sexual so I’m using it to mean she’s not as sweet and innocent as she seems. Even if she was a sex worker, I wouldn't personally refer to her or any other sex worker using derogatory terms)

Story's changing, color's fading (POSSIBLY manga!怜 panicking & working out how to explain he didn’t intend to kill 舞 and was defending himself; both in the immediate aftermath of her killing and during his trial. One panel of the manga shows 怜 literally fading during the trial, but “colour’s fading” could also mean that his mind is near enough blank when he & 舞 are fighting. Whatever the medium, 怜has a pretty massive breakdown when found guilty)
You are nothing more than a thought (After 怜 & 舞’s deaths, another character called Kirigiri goes into苗’s room and talks to him about 舞. Although 苗 is affected by their deaths, he doesn’t show it & just carries on as best as he can)

[Chorus]I've never seen your eyes so red (In the anime Where They Cry, the female character’s eyes turn red and catlike when angry. Although 舞 doesn’t do this when she & 怜 are fighting – and those characters in Dangan Ronpa who have red eyes have red eyes all the time anyway - I imagine manga!怜 thinking that he’s never seen manga! 舞act so aggressively.)
Familiar stranger slips into my bed (舞 & 苗 knew of each other in middle school before being locked in the academy but didn’t speak back then, hence ”familiar stranger”. 舞 slips into 苗’s bed because of the room swap)
I should have killed you when I had the chance x2 }
To get off easy } (舞 thinking of all these lines. Right up until her death, she’s hesitant in killing and in framing 苗 as they're both very friendly to each other. Manga!舞 chose 怜 as he was - from what I remember of the manga - the only other student she had any real chance to get close to.)[/chorus]

• Only pretty on the outside, }/Full of nails on the inside, }(舞 puts 怜 in the frame with the dying message she writes and befriends 苗. Manga!怜 thinks 'Bitch!' and similar things about 舞 during the trial)
• I guess lust is blind (Replace ‘lust’ with something else less sexual bit still potentially leading to lust on 苗’s part for 舞)
• (I cannot feel)
• Red nails and a butcher's knife (In 舞’s case, it’s "plain nails and a kitchen knife", but anyway)
• I don't care cause she's looking fine (Manga!怜invites 舞 for a meal in the cafeteria to talk music with her as he wants to become a rock star. However, this is LONG before 舞’s death)
• She's a good way to die (Not true! 怜 is absolutely petrified when he finds out he’s killed 舞 and his terror is palpable throughout the trial. He screams for his life right up until his dying moments in the game and the anime too.)

[Chorus]

Next time I won't be so weak (苗 made it out alive from 舞’s betrayal) } x3
I made it out alive } x 3
Next time I won't be so weak

Story's changing, color's fading, (Another potential interpretation of that line is that everyone accuses苗of killing舞initially)
You are nothing more than a thought

[chorus] – see before

I thought all girls wanted fellas to take them to fancy places and spend lots of money (irrelevant)

Breathe Carolina – Get Off Easy Lyrics 8 years ago
I'm SURE that this song was inspired by an actual murder case of some kind, judging by the sample at the beginning of the song.

"OK, cameras rolling. We are now in the residence... The first level living room area, wherein victim No. 1 was found. There is evidence of ransack in this room".

* * * * *

However, I think this song's title is a double-entendre. "Get off easy" can mean to orgasm easily, to get away lightly from a bad situation, or to be given a sentence that's not as heavy as the crime committed would warrant.

I'll post what comes into my head personally in another post as two smallish walls of text are better than one enormous one, I think.

Taylor Swift – I Knew You Were Trouble Lyrics 8 years ago
Is it just me or does Taylor seem to incorporate slut-shaming in a lot of her music?

Maybe it's just me, but it sounds to me like it's yet another song about how she was stupid to lose some of her 'purity' to some guy.
That's one of the main things that gets me incredibly angry about her and her music... not to mention that video for You Belong To Me!

The first time I heard this, the lyrics just took my breath away.

I'm not from Liverpool, but it's my spiritual home and I honestly felt like I was there with Akira as he told his story.
What's more, he tells the story with a lot of honesty, humour and warmth. It's not a very cheery story, but the fact that such a bad situation can be turned into something of beauty... wow.

The Left Rights – Magic Bone Lyrics 11 years ago
This one creeps me out and at first I found it really depressing, but now I like it.

I think it could have several different meanings. The ones I've come up with are:
trying to express yourself but not being able to do so because others would object
depression
necrophilia


Just one qualm I have about the song... his finger wouldn't really be able to reach his lips that easily if he was lying prone i.e. on his front!
Unless his finger's up to his lips anyway and he's not bothered about the discomfort of his hand squashing his face. Or something.

Eh, I dunno.

How lame am I commenting on my own writing?! XP

Hepburn – Waiting for God Lyrics 11 years ago
To take a wild guess, this could be about how someone feels after a friend of theirs has committed suicide (not that likely, seems excessively grim to me) or run away or is living rough because of an argument the friend and the singer - or whoever the song's about - had.

Maybe the friend's running away from a bad situation and waiting for something good to happen, I don't know.

Whatever the case, this is my favourite song of theirs, without a doubt.

Beautiful interpretation.

I'm currently studying in Japan and my social life is the best its ever been.... on the outside.
However, no matter how much fun I'm having, inside there's a terrified, overwhelmed young girl with Aspergers' trying to get out.

I try my utmost to reach out to people and even the person here who I feel most comfortable confiding in - in my mind at least - has no clue how traumatic every social event is for me and a lot of the time I feel like I'm just outside of the group and not able to break through...

The girl in the song is a heartbreaker and likes to lead people on, or she's the sort of person who likes to make people think she loves them then just uses them for a shag (but the lines There's no love in her/She just used her heart for a bullet) indicate that the first is more likely.

She's cold and seemingly heartless

Retard-o-bot 2000 – Swiss Cheese Lyrics 12 years ago
This conveys very similar sentiments to 'Generic Crunk Rap' by MC Lars i.e. Too much rap these days is about how tough and rich the 'rapper' is, when they're usually neither; how people you don't like should be shot.....

I think the line 'Your whore name (?), that's right' should be "Burbank, that's right". If so, then it'd allude to how many rappers big up their hometown, no matter how poor or unspecial it actually is

Coheed and Cambria – Welcome Home Lyrics 12 years ago
My boyfriend played me a couple of CDs he'd burned himself and this was on it. Before I listened to the words, I thought 'Awwww, how sweet. He's more romantic than I realised'.

But now I've read the words to this, I know that this song - for him - is about one of his exes.

She had SERIOUS issues (Foster care, many attempts at suicide and sleeping with every boy she could, as well as becoming pregnant and having an abortion).

And yet, he still pined for her and would've done anything for her. I'm just glad that he ended the relationship, both for his sake and mine.

The song itself is obviously about a girl who seems innocent and sweet, but is really a liar. Boy feels crucified by her. He hates to condemn her because he doesn't believe in condemnation, but yet he does condemn her nonetheless.

I don't understand what these lines, mean though....

"Hang on to the glory of my right hand
Here laid to rest is our love ever longed?
With truth on the shores of compassion
You seem to make premise to all of these songs"

I reckon the 'Uncle' bit is in there just for the sake of being random... but I'm probably wrong.
