This Bike Is a Pipe Bomb – Drugtown Lyrics 8 years ago
seems pretty obvious to me. i think it's just about not liking the big city rock n roll lifestyle that the stars and their fans get into - the romanticism of heroin and being strung out and not caring. this is just against that.

Heatmiser – Antonio Carlos Jobim Lyrics 8 years ago
pretty much agree with cavauro. elliotts my favourite thing in the world and there are probably 9 or 10 great heatmiser tunes but theres also a lot of crap and a lot of the production on the albums sounds like shit. they made great songs into pretty average material.
which is why i reckon people dont comment on them much.

as for the meaning, not a clue im afraid

Dinosaur Jr. – Over It Lyrics 9 years ago
i think this songs about keeping your chin up and not being a sad sack all the time basically. musically its all pretty chirpy and upbeat and then the fact that he says 'im over it' and 'get over it' about a thousand times in the tune makes me think that its about just letting go of things which have gone wrong or could go wrong and learning to just go with the flow.
thats just my opinion though so...

pinpointed eyes are clearly a reference to heroin
that alone validates the drug argument on this song

Elliott Smith – Ballad of Big Nothing Lyrics 10 years ago

Femme Fatale – Into Dust Lyrics 10 years ago
I know it's hard for you,
It's all you've every known,

sick song.

Queens of the Stone Age – You Would Know Lyrics 10 years ago

these lyrics are so wrong

kind of completely changes the song

Hot Rod Circuit – The Pharmacist Lyrics 11 years ago
Good explanations so far.. to me this song speaks to the to the person who defines him/herself by their achievements. It's about someone who has thought that their worth could be measured only by how "well" they do in life. The author has obviously come to the realization that this can't be, that the struggle for perfection is in vain, and not worth the pain it brings to the individual. He doesn't think that striving for perfection is realistic. He wants to be able to connect with others and fears his desire for perfection will get in the way. If he continues on this path, he will become consumed by this desire and become detatched from his life and the people in it. He didn't realize how difficult this course would be and wishes that people would take him seriously when he expresses his pain. His journey to perfection has taken him to a place where he is alone and he has no joy. His mind is in turmoil trying to figure things out and his thoughts of giving up (possibly suicide?) are tempting him more an more. He feels as though nothing can release him of his misery, no one can rescue him from his feeling of inadequacy and detachment. These feelings are all he has. He deeply regrets starting on this quest for perfection and acknowledges it was the worst mistake he ever made. He knows that the pain and pressure will never end and questions if he really knew that to begin with.

Arctic Monkeys – Temptation Greets You Like Your Naughty Friend Lyrics 11 years ago
dizzees bit sounded to me like (similar to luvinthearcticm)

we used to be tight, me and my naughty friends,
caused pure madness in the ends,
i mean day and night,
we robbed, we stole, we loved to fight,
smoking, drinking, joyriding,
drugs, thugs, not law-abiding,
reckless youngsters no direction,
no sign of correction,
but then i switched it off,
changed my ways,
what the area
like oh my days,
but not my naughty friends,
naw they're not phased,
can't believe that this music pays,
see no reason why we can't do,
all the things we've always done,
still in my heart i know thats just wrong,
but its hard to fight the temptation son.

the only line i'm not sure about is 'what the area' - this has got to be wrong but i can't make anything else out of it.

Arctic Monkeys – Teddy Picker Lyrics 11 years ago
I don't think it's about giving head.
I think it's him talking about people being dumb. He's saying they're repeating old mistakes 'for the thousandth time' and yet they're acting all loud and arrogant about it as if they're totally right, but they're gonna get taken advantage of at every turn without even realising it.
