Enya – Wild Child Lyrics 9 years ago
Sadly, feral children tend to sicken and die very quickly when removed from the environment the grew up in, and tend to die very young even if left there.

Leaves' Eyes – Take The Devil In Me Lyrics 10 years ago
Something about this song rubs me the wrong way. It feels to me like a last minute conversion to monotheism, and just makes me want to cry for the Gods being abandoned.

Epica – The Divine Conspiracy Lyrics 11 years ago
Funny, maybe it's just my mindset, but this scream Eden metaphors to me.

Once we had been
Rich from within
Did not try to reach
What we couldn't achieve

Very much invokes the image of innocent paradise

Nightwish – Wish I Had an Angel Lyrics 12 years ago
First off, when I first heard this with Tarja I thought it was decent butt not amasing. Hearing Anette perform it, it sounds absolutely perfect. It works as a duet between Anette and Marco.

Second: to those of you who say the lyrics have no meaning, you are giving a great insult to Tuomas' writing, which is generally very insightful and spiritual. I cannot pretend to know what he intended with this song, but it is obvious the theme of beauty and innocence is a part, and how possesing a great beauty is at the cost of the innocence therein. By becoming a possession, something of the purity is lost.

I can see the Paradise Lost angle there, but its been a bit since I read it, so I can't give specific examples.

Within Temptation – Somewhere Lyrics 12 years ago
Every time I hear this I feel like crying. As a pagan, I love the general spirtuality that infuses this without excluding anyone. Whenever I need a good cry, this is the first song I come to. Beautiful. Sharon's voice is angelic.

Within Temptation – The Howling Lyrics 12 years ago
Sharon's voice seems rougher in this song than in others (Ice Queen, Mother Earth, etc) and it fits the theme. Makes me want to look into this game..

Deine Lakaien – A Fish Called Prince Lyrics 12 years ago
Oddly enough, the fish in the story is named "Princess"

also, I believe the line is "The Golden Past" not pack, as Pious is reminiscing about the past and the golden age of silent movies.

"Affairs of lust and power lost on" the Queen of Sheba

"I called you home and cried for you" - Essie and the piskies of Cornawall, maybe?

Within Temptation – Ice Queen Lyrics 12 years ago
Sounds like the HCA story to me as well, with generic winter personification as well. Beautiful song, the musical equivalent of sunlight on a snowy field.

submissions
Nightwish – The Islander Lyrics 12 years ago
I keep listening over and over to this song. Like the video, I see an old sailor whonow keeps a lighthouse. The 'princess' seems to be a wife he might have lost (now his loves a memory) and the children probably grew up while he was at sea, so he never knew them much, just the image of them playing. And of course, he feels he's had a long enough life and ties himself to the anchor.

Such a beautiful song, I never heard Marco sound so... Wonderful. And when Anette joins in, their voices mix perfectly, it makes me want to cry, such a sad beauty. Good job guys, more songs like this in style if not lyrical theme would be great, the Celtic overtones work for you.

Inkubus Sukkubus – Reptile Lyrics 12 years ago
this is the classic abusive relationship, with a mythological or spiritual twist, it seems. The addition of the teacher role enforces the dependence and the desire to please. Beautiful, but terribly sad. Especially when the line "What a trophy to inscribe beside the one who've gone before" is considered, the implication previous apprentices/lovers/partners/students have died because of the relationship.

submissions
Inkubus Sukkubus – Rune Lyrics 12 years ago
the whole song feels like a spell or ritual, and I've used it as such several times. The beat is intoxcating, the lyrics so celebratory, it brings a energetic peace. Wonderful, straightforward empowerment and celebration.

submissions
Thea Gilmore – Even Gods Do Lyrics 12 years ago
as said above, Shadow is the main character in American Gods, which the song is based on. So many references, gods, coins, cutting down from a tree, they all are based on events and objects in the novel. A great song about a great book.

Future Bible Heroes – Mr. Punch Lyrics 12 years ago
such a fun song, and perfectly fitting the grim topic so oftenplyed for laughs, as in the Neil Gaiman work the song is based on. Wonderful.

Inkubus Sukkubus – Young Lovers Lyrics 12 years ago
for me it seems the young woman fell in love with someone who may not have treated her well, but when he met an untimely death, the pain continued, even years later she still sorrowed for him.

Inkubus Sukkubus – Erotic Angel Lyrics 12 years ago
In case the song isn't clear enough, a look at Lucifer from a different angle, the change from a knight of Heaven to the Tsar of Hell, and all that goes with it.

Within Temptation – Crucify (Tori Amos cover) Lyrics 12 years ago
I dunno, something about the cover softens the song. In a way I think it takes the power out. Tori's version seems more, I dunno, strong, a statement of fact. This seems more a lament. It's good, but the feeling it evokes just doesn't seem right to the lyrics. It's definitely the vocals that do it, making it just too pretty, ya know?

submissions
Within Temptation – Angels Lyrics 12 years ago
I think this is a far more beautiful song than any mere breakup theme. Truely evil? Maybe not, but it has qualities of a love betrayed. Not any relationship, soulmates, maybe even angels themselves, torn apart by the lies of one, Fallen, and the lingering love mixed with the anger and sorrow. Beautiful.

such a fun bashing of Bush Sr. 'vision thing' is one of his famous Bushisms, and in that context everything else falls into place.

Inkubus Sukkubus – I Just Can't Get You Out Of My Head Lyrics 13 years ago
wrong. the correct lyrics are:


Can't get you out of my head
Got a devil here inside of me
Can't get you out of my head
The dead in Hell are calling me

Can't get you out of my head
As a razor tears into my flesh
Can't get you out of my head
When drowning in this misery

Everynight, everyday
Just to be there in your arms

Na na na, na na na na na
Na na na, na na na na na
Na na na, na na na na na
Na na na, na na na na na

Can't get you out of my head
When the soul is ripped right out of me
Can't get you out of my head
When the cloak of death is over me

Everynight, everyday
Just to be there in your arms

Can't get you out of my head
Can't get you out of my head
Can't get you out of my head
Can't get you out of my head

Na na na, na na na na na
Na na na, na na na na na
Na na na, na na na na na
Na na na, na na na na na

DragonForce – Dawn Over a New World Lyrics 13 years ago
You can really see how fantasy novels and rpg's influence the band when you look at lyrics like this. It's obviously another tribute to the great epic heroes and their ability to never give up.

Nightwish – Beauty And The Beast Lyrics 13 years ago

Siouxsie and the Banshees – Israel Lyrics 13 years ago
Israel is where it all began, you know. And 'Happy Noel' screams Christmas to me. The whole lyrics, it evokes this sense of happiness because, like it says, they're singing, not literally singing per se, but just celebrating life.

Siouxsie and the Banshees – Voodoo Dolly Lyrics 13 years ago
I too see this is a phobia personified as the 'voodoo dolly'.
When you have something that scares you to the point of paralysis, it is debilitating. You don't want to face it, you just want to cut out the thing that causes the fear from your life, making you lazy as you cut out things that keep you busy to avoid the fear.

Inkubus Sukkubus – Underworld Lyrics 13 years ago
B12, get a life. This song references Egyptian mythology, and uses the archaic terms to evoke the feel of the Egyptian Book Of the Dead translations, which use them to make it clear these are spells, rituals, sacred texts.

"The heat of Ra" Ra, Amon, Amon-ra/re is the sun god, each day he drives the sun across the sky and each night he carries it through the underworld safely.
"The womb of Nut" Nut, or Nuit, is the Earth mother. Easy reference there.

"Utchat" Is the eye of Horus symbol.
