Tune-Yards – My Country Lyrics 5 years ago
Economic inequality in the US, not just from the perspective of minorities, but from the stance of an average american citizen; the wealthiest 1% of the country controls 43% of the $$$, while the least wealth 80% of the country only holds 4% of the wealth.

In one of the opening shots of the music video for this song, a child stands in trickling water... The US economic system is supposedly meant to work as a "trickle down" system, but it's really corrupt, and the extremely poor have nearly no safety net or hope of ascending to the middle class no matter how hard they work.

"At the salvation amy making us all stand in a line" shows how many people are waiting for the help they need.
"We cannot have it; Well then why is there juice dripping under your chin; When they have nothing, why do you have something" represents the greed of the extremely wealthy that refuse to spread the wealth.
"Sweet land of liberty why can I not see it" Why is the US still referred to as land of the free, when it has become one of the LEAST equal developed countries?
"How come I cannot see my future within your arms" Maybe she plans to become an expat, relocating permanently to a land with more humanitarian values.

Regina Spektor – Hotel Song Lyrics 11 years ago
ScorpioRising mentiopned "Her dream are not so innocent. Who ever this girl is (and even she's not sure) she's a predator. Orca whales and owls are skillful hunters who rely on camouflage and stealth."

maybe in her dreams of whales and owls (which scorpionrising said are predators anyway, in her dreams SHE is the predator, the one in control. and then when she wakes up she realizes that she is living in fear, and that she is not the in control at all. she has actually lost control of her life byt doing cocaine, and having an affair.
"so whos the girl wearing my dress"
it is HER wearing her dress, but she is leading a life that she never imagined she would. her saying 'whos the girl' implies that she cannot believe it is her

Pinback – Fortress Lyrics 11 years ago
"You and I. Uneasy. Livid."
livid, meaning bruised or strangled in a sense, is showing that a relationship is not going so well.

"Stop it's too late
I'm feeling frustrated
I see no sign of fortress"
he see's no place of security or comfort within the relationship either.

"Safe as a cootie wootie with you.
Never pretend the chill.
Too many shadows, Too many sails."
perhaps a 'cootie wootie' is not a safe thing after all? maybe he means that the relationship is in danger of ending, and he doesnt feel safe or comfortable, or secure with the other person. the 'too many shadows' is maybe refering to all the problems they have going on between one another.

"Too many fallen, Too many failed. Nobody Move."
although the relationship is not ideal (to say the least) the singer feels as if he has gone through too many fallen/failed relationships to end this one. for it would just be another one added to his list of "failed" relationships. so rather than ending the bad relationship, he is just staying put. hence, 'nobody move'

i dunno...maybe this song wasnt made to have any meaning. but i thought i'd give it a shot

whether i am on track, or completely wrong ...i dont care either way. the song is still great, no doubt about it

Death Cab for Cutie – I Will Follow You Into the Dark Lyrics 11 years ago
i reallly love this song. its odd though, because i've heard from a few different people that they think it is about suicide. i disagree, i think it is just about ben loving someone forever, even after death.

but the other interpretation (about suicide) is interesting......
