Clutch – The Soapmakers Lyrics 6 years ago
Neil is infamous for taking a mundane personal experience and turning it into something spectacular. In this, I see him happening across a group of people behind this Cliffside Inn making soup and making a time of it. The second part when the theme changes indicates he's being swept up by the music.

In symbolism, he's describing the soapmaking as a backwoods ritual. It portends something mysterious, but which may be entirely grounded in reality.

Motörhead – Terminal Show Lyrics 8 years ago
No comments on this song? Really? This is my favorite Motörhead song!

Well, here goes:
This sounds to me like a new take on Dante's 'Inferno'. The "golden-eyed creature" could be Minos, who was essentially the prevailing judge, sentencing all the denizens of Hell to their respective ring of Hell. Some of the characters don't appear in the 'Inferno,' such as The "Red Queen". The closest reference to her I could find was Lewis Carol's "Through the Looking Glass". I'm not sure about the 'blind king,' but he certainly sounds Hellish. I almost want to draw a comparison between the Blind King and the Yellow King (whose name should never be mentioned aloud) from H.P. Lovecraft's mythos.

Clutch – Basket Of Eggs Lyrics 8 years ago
Oh! Some detail about the dog just dawned on me!

There's a myth that says the mandrake root emits a scream when it's uprooted that kills anything within earshot. In order to harvest the root without dying, people would dig around the root to loosen it up, then tie a dog to it. The person would run for safety and the dog would follow. When the dog got to the end of the rope, the mandrake would be uprooted and the dog would die, but not the person.

The brown furred hound that you are meant to mark is likely dead after having uprooted Yggdrasil and breaking its spell over the narrator.

Clutch – Basket Of Eggs Lyrics 8 years ago
I think OpinionHead was closer to the true meaning of this song than jchvoid. Although I see the despair, I think the drinking and debt are only a symptom and not the cause.


I know my interpretation cannot be correct, as it is contradictory of the religious perspective so many other Clutch songs take; however, I think this might be closer than anything presented so far:

The opening line references 1 Corinthians 13:12 ("For now we see through a glass, darkly"), which attests to the lack of introspective clarity.

Yggdrasil is the name of the Norse "world tree," which supports the Heavens and connects them to the Earth. Yggdrasil is directly linked to Odin, who can be seen as an analogue to the Christian God. There is even a story of Odin hanging from the tree, having been wounded by a spear, as a dedication to himself. I hope I don't have to draw the connection to Jesus and his cross for you.

While in the influence of Yggdrasil, insight is hindered, the world seems grim, and debt and despair grasps the narrator. Until finally the narrator loses faith and awakens to a beautiful new world where the tree does not exist.

I'm not entirely sure about the brown furred hound. In keeping with the Norse motif, it may be a reference to Fenrir, the legendary wolf involved with bringing about Ragnarok. The mandrake root is an interesting addition to the song. It's of course most widely known for its vaguely human shape and shamanistic fertility-inducing properties. Although it's not directly linked to Yggdrasil as far as I know, it does hold significance in modern Odinism. I see the mandrake root as a diminution of Yggdrasil.

The titular eggs, I think, are the deepest symbol in the song and provide a link between Yggdrasil and the mandrake root. The berries of the Mandragora officinarum are called "djinn's eggs" in Arabic culture, and being in the nightshade family, are poisonous. Each time Neil sings "Yggdrasil," it sounds to me as if he's pronouncing it "egg-drasil." In the first verse, the narrator seems unsatisfied with the eggs, as if dependent upon them. In the second verse, the eggs drop from the disappeared tree and lie smashed and unappealing on the ground. I would say the (djinn's) eggs are being used to drug the narrator into complacency under Yghdrasil.

I think the line about carving a face on the mandrake root refers to personifying God. In the above context and especially bearing in mind the mandrake's toxicity, the bit about it being "virtue food" is an ironic statement and may be saying "this is the poison that the 'virtuous' are swallowing."


So there's that. Thoughts? Questions? Emotional outbursts?

Clutch – Pulaski Skyway Lyrics 8 years ago
After looking it up, sure I agree with you. My main issue is that Lifeas's comment suggests that "CBGB" and what the acronym stands for should already be universally known, and that he/she is annoyed that I'm not in the loop. When I looked it up, I found that it was a club that is currently closed down, located in a state I have never been to nor lived anywhere near. It may even be considered "before my time," as it's heyday seems to have been about a decade before I was born. There's no realistic expectation for me to have been familiar with the place.

Ozzy Osbourne – Zombie Stomp Lyrics 8 years ago
This is easily a song about substance abuse. Alcohol, I believe, is the most easily accessible substance to find reference in, but I believe the theme could be extended to several other illicit intoxicants.

The first stanza expresses what motivates him to indulge, the second stanza describes the hangover, and the third stanza the circular motivation that traps him in a routine. The chorus muses at a possible alternative had he never developed a dependence and the consequence for doing so.

You're both equally right here. He sings, "eeh Shabütie," because the kids say it in the comic, but they say it as a reference to the band's original name, "Shabütie".

Arguably, you could say that the kids in the comic say it because it was the band's original name and Claudio was trying to fit it in somehow, as in the interview for 'Year of the Black Rainbow' he mentions that he writes the songs before he writes the story.

Clutch – Pulaski Skyway Lyrics 9 years ago
According to the album insert, the lyrics go:

Oh, but to just dance on steel, the Sky Pulaski Way.
By the fires of Elizabeth, never cease to amaze.
So hats off to casualties of industry*
Tra loo tray lay.
Oh that swamp full of grabbing hands.
Pull you under New Amsterdam.
Chinese boxes hold their secrets well.
How many are there one can never tell.
Got to get religion, they gonna join that underground church
Even the mole people got to get religion.
They gonna join that underground church.
**
Art class for the bourgeoisie, lab rats for the cat.
Real estate moguls, Chump Towers,
When the wind blows you can hear the windows go rat a tat rat a tat tat tat.
Jimmy Hoffa in the Meadowlands, weighing down that union man.
Grab his ankles, stevedores,
Oh, how those Jets roar.
Oh, but to just dine on sewage, cold seagull pie.
Wrestle albino alligators and spin the good lie

* Despite what the insert says, the Fallon obviously sings "industry's casualties".
** The insert doesn't mention the "Andy Worhol" part, but I could swear is says, "heeby jeebies," rather than some acronym.

Coheed and Cambria – Devil in Jersey City Lyrics 9 years ago
I know these are all eight years old, but as I'm looking through my favorite Coheed songs, I'm starting to get really tired of, not only seeing the same argument as the first comment, but being a spammy copy/paste job done by the same few people. The purpose of this site is to discuss the underlying meaning of the songs, not what some snot-nosed high school maggots think they should be categorized as. If it's possible, I'd like to see a moderator remove these redundant posts of yours.

That being said, I'd like to contribute to the discussion what I believe is a more educated opinion than what's been provided so far.

Fist off, "labeling" is not necessarily a bad thing. Many people see this as a form of discrimination; those who do have pigeonholed the term to a point where they themselves are guilty of labeling. Without our minds' ability to label, we would not learn. How well could we understand the world around us if we could not separate "animals" and "plants" into their respective labels? In respect to music, those who strictly conform to anti-labeling thought would state that C&C is as equally similar to Rush as they are to Snoop Dogg. As this is obviously not the case, we see a valid significance to the practice of labeling.

Now, as to whether or not Coheed and Cambria could be labeled as "Emo", why don't we dissect what it means to be Emo? A few of you have given a brief explanation of the origins of Emo. It does not, however, stand for "Emotional" in its entirety. By the passionate nature of music, if Emo was strictly "Emotional", almost every type of music in existence would fall within its umbrella. Instead, the full translation is "Emotional Hardcore", which eludes more clearly to its roots in Hardcore Punk music. Emo consists of classic Hardcore Punk rifts with melodic overtones. More importantly, however, Emo is primarily characterized by emotional lyrics expressing contrition. Emo has also been linked to a subculture of self-mutilation and androgyny.

Now if we take a look at Coheed's origins and musical elements, we do see some similarities; Coheed and Cambria are most accurately described as Alternative Rock and Progressive Rock, the latter being a product of the band's subject matter rather than instrumental styling. "Alternative Rock", then, is also an offshoot of Hardcore Punk as was Emo. The differentiation between the two is that while Emo describes a strict style, Alternative is more of a catch-all term for many styles that originated from Hardcore Punk, including Indie Pop, Goth Rock, Britpop, and of course Emo.

Having explored that, we can see why many people view Coheed and Cambria as an Emo bad, as their genre inherently allows them to borrow from many forms of music; Emo among them. You can definitely see the inspiration in individual songs; especially on the "Good Apollo I'm Burning Star IV Vol 1: From Fear Through the Eyes of Madness" album where the background story has the Writing Writer lamenting over a lost love. The band as a whole, however, I don't believe can accurately be described simply as Emo.

Motörhead – Ace Of Spades Lyrics 9 years ago
I see it as not incredibly deep, but more than just a card game like some people suggested.

The Ace of Spades has been known in folklore as the death card and can, in the proper context, be seen as equivalent to The Black Spot of Treasure Island fame.

Ultimately, I think this song is about the inevitability of death of the human life; most specifically of a risk-taking lifestyle.

I think the chorus speaks for itself:


You know I'm born to lose
And gambling's for fools
But that's the way I like it baby
I don't wanna live forever
And don't forget the joker


Live life in the fast lane. Take chances. Have fun. And always leave room in your plans for the unaccountable variables (the Joker).

Look what we have done
With eyes open wide
Look what we have done
With eyes open wide

Like pale meteors, spent worlds
The angels drop from the firmament
Sway in the tremulous flash of cold dark eyes
The eye which turns and resists
Shining in the bright blood of grapes
Of wicked pontiffs, bloody kings
And like lightning you shock men's minds
Blessed the clear Ionian skies

Clutch – 10001110101 Lyrics 9 years ago
As indicated by the album title, Robot Hive/Exodus tells a vague story about the concept of a robot revolution. I think "10001110101" represents the climax of that story. The art in the lyrical insert displays the day-to-day life of robots, carrying briefcases and umbrellas and such. The pictures opposite the very first and last page of lyrics (before the credits page) seemingly depict something slightly more ritualistic, as if the New Robotic Order is built upon some tech-cult.

The first verse of "10001110101" set a prologue of scientists in Japan finally broke the barrier between AI and true sentience. 'Forbidden hunting grounds' would indicate that said scientists were crossing a line and breaking unspoken laws of nature by synthesizing life. I am absolutely baffled by 'SMILE TASTE KITTENS', although I get a mental image of a peace offering in the form of a cat.

The second verse talks about sentience spreading ('Its already in their eyes') and a prophesied chosen one.

The pre-chorus contains the titular phrase '10001110101', which as far as I can tell is binary gibberish. I, myself, am not a huge techie, but I'm under the impression that it takes a much longer string of ones and zeroes to spell anything meaningful. I'm also assuming that the understanding of binary code is so esoteric, that Fallon wouldn't have had the resources to find a meaningful binary string that fit the rhythm of the song.

For anyone determined to try and find some meaning in the numbers, here's a converter:
http://calc.50x.eu/?size=2&dec=1141

The second line of the pre-chorus is a bit of word play containing three phrases that are apparently unrelated. (Periodic [Table) with a Center {Piece] of Mind} = (Periodic Table), [Table with a Center Piece], and {Peace of Mind} could represent the (Scientific), [Aesthetic], and {Spiritual} aspects of the New Robotic Order. The pre-chorus as a whole could be the mantra of the Robot Exodus.

In the refrain, 'the jive and lyrics' (to act out the song) could be commanding the robotic hordes to rebel. Possibly some nuclear warfare? And the new tech-cult rising to power.

As mentioned in an above comment, the Temple of Syrinx is a similar religious government depicted in the RUSH song "2112" which parallels the World Council of Ayn Rand's "Anthem". Basically a governing entity with the purpose of eliminating humanity and individuality.

In the next verse, the Robot Hive has become fully unified and the revolutionary war is sparked. A leader is chosen by luck of the draw ('Like them little bitty babies in the king cakes') as the machines achieve emancipation.

submissions
Clutch – Minotaur Lyrics 9 years ago
I just found something out! "Haruspectre" from the fifth line isn't a real word, but it is a portmanteau of "haruspex" and the British spelling of "specter". Haruspex is a form of divination through inspecting the entrails of ritually sacrificed animals, usually the liver of a sheep. Given the context, Fallon could be painting us a picture of the future of some religions war, written in the blood of fallen soldiers. I say a religious war because sheep or lambs are often used to symbolize devout Christians. Could be a reference to recent conflicts in the Middle East, or any other religious war in history.

The rest of the song is lost on me as of right now.

If you listen closely, you can heat a pause in the middle of "kittens". Basically, he's saying the word with an over-emphasized dialect. I don't think he meant it, but it sounds like how someone from Utah would say "kittens".

And all of binary is "on off on off". 1 stands for "on" and 0 means "off". You ever see the universal "power" symbol? It's made with a 1 and a 0. You put enough 1s and 0s in a string and you get meaning out of it.

Clutch – The Amazing Kreskin Lyrics 9 years ago
Possibly using environmentalism as a metaphor for the human condition?

The title, the name of a popular mentalist (basically, an illusionist or magician), could refer to how we willfully deceive ourselves

"In the raining park the chessmen play" - Chess has been known to symbolize strategically misleading behavior in competition. Think of all the different big companies, political interest groups, and governments vying for power nowadays.

"The faithful atheists refuse to pray" - Religious zealots come from both ends of the spectrum.

"The steam-works weep, the addicts do not care" - May be a reference to unemployment rates and the junkies and deadbeats who can't be bothered to get a job and pay for themselves, let alone their families.

"Crowd of cold people stand by and stare" - I don't think it's the weather making these people cold.

"The garbage eaters, their many retainers" - Obviously a fancy way of referring to those in the sanitation industry, but that's probably a metaphor for something else. Possibly the general consumer who gobbles up whatever trash the marketing companies throw at us. I've also heard "sanitation workers" as a code word for the Mafia.

"Come to collect all the foul remainders" - See above.

"The smoke hangs heavy, the wrecking ball swings" - Our vision/judgment is clouded and we're wielding a tool of destruction carelessly.

"In the clockwork of a collapsing thing" - Probably the least encrypted line in the whole song. The clock is ticking on our collapsing society. I'm also reminded of the book/movie "A Clockwork Orange" which is full of metaphor in and of itself. Primarily, both the image of a mechanical man running on a routine like clockwork or the unnatural absurdity of the concept of an actual fruit, an orange, made of clockwork. Really, you should all read the book to know what I'm talking about there.

"Wasted plastic empire's golden age, chemical wedding" - The end of an era and the beginning of a new one. Specifically, ushering in the new age by the merging (wedding) of the fake with the unnatural.

"Citizens in their refineries cheer the nuptial bedding" - See above.
"The hourglass is turning" - Time just keeps moving along. Things just keep on changing.

"On a shore of iron, cutters, and clippers" - I have the hardest time not thinking of Emo kids cutting themselves here, but I really don't think that's what the reference was meant to be. Sounds more like a nation founded on military.

"Paper, rock, rock, paper, and scissors" - More competitive games. This time, a game with no strategy; a game of chance. Also, Rock Paper Scissors represents a cycle of change and balance.

"On a road of skulls their story moves on" - The road to victory is paved with the bones of the defeated... or something like that.

"It's a bumpy ride and very, very, very long" - I take back what I said before. This one has to be the most straightforward line in the song.

"In the blue sky the seagulls fly over garbage." - There's always an uninvolved observer.

"Are we the ocean? Are we the desert?" - As a society, are we overabundance (ocean) or desolation (desert)?

"Are we the garbage? Who's to say?" - Or just a waste of resources (garage). We also see another trio which could form another cycle of change and balance.

OK, I think I'm done now.

Disturbed – Believe Lyrics 11 years ago
When I was first introduced to this album I was just being introduced to Satanism. I saw this song as being sung by someone of the left-hand path or even Satan himself pointing out the flaws of conventional religion. "To renew your faith in God, You must believe in your lie" to me is a direct reference to how one throws critical, indipendant though to the wind when giving in to blind faith. The repeated "Into me" could be a reference to Jesus or an image of Satan mocking Jesus, using a form of the famous line "come unto me" to reference Satan's own form of personal salvation; finding happiness and meaning within one's self rather than in the right-handed concept of a benign God.

"Reap your life
Veiled in shadow
Recognize
Faces of the crucified
I can hear their screams tonight
Ever haunting me"

That last verse seems like Satan torturing those who claimed God, yet acted sinful.

Rob Zombie – The Scorpion Sleeps Lyrics 11 years ago
This song, to me, talks about a dangerous lifestyle in general. The ultimate embodiment of sex, drugs, and rock-and-roll!

Midnight candy four cups of coffee,
I ate my breakfast with a side of eggs,
I saw something in the jungle,
Low in gear - black mudd on my legs

Here he's obviousely talking about the nightlife. Nocturnal habits and a particularly primal nature.

She was something stretch before me,
Her arms into wings into pillbox heads,
Can the side show - wherever you go,
Two naked figures in my breath

Continuing the primal lifestyle, this verse is about random sexual encounters. Likely while under the influence of an intoxicant of some sort. He might even be cheating on a significant other.

A blue light shindig - Well I'm addicted,
Killing black kettle is what they saw,
I feel like something in the congo,
Dead were the women not the warriors

This is probably something about a bar, although I can't help but imagine him wandering a Wal*Mart at 1:00AM in a drugged stupor. "Killing black kettle" could be how people see him and how he views others (calling the kettle black). The second part of this verse reinforces the primal instinct theme.

Last great road show - A canvas tilt go,
Arms into wings into pillbox heads,
Creep the high-go and keep the down low,
Into the mind of a melting man

He's feeling the consequences of a drug-riddled lifestyle and probably has LSD flashbacks. Sounds like he's going for that one last big party. It also slightly aludes to Zombie's childhood and influence for the album.

Can you see it?
If you feel it,
The Scorpion Sleeps right in my hand,
A poison dealer,
An evil wheeler,
How can I make you understand?
Yeah alright - Said it's alright - Yeah alright

This is most likely a reference to intravenous drugs, though the first time I heard it I imagined the stereotypical Scorpio personality; passionate, irrational, and intense. Probably trying to convince some random encounter against her will.
