|AFI – Death of Seasons Lyrics||13 years ago|
I think this song's about the kind of feeling where it's "like the end of the day where you feel nothing has been achieved and you're in a hurry to get the day over with so you can start the next one. You tell yourself you're going to do lots of positive things. But the next day is just like the one before. Sometimes it goes on for weeks. " -Robert Smith
Seasons are used as a metaphor for change...Death of seasons, a period of stagnation where everything's the same.
Of late, it's harder just to go outside
To leave this deadspace with hatred, so alive
Writhing with sickness, thrown into banality, I decay
^The narrorator is plagued by banality- like everything is so mundane he's having trouble feeling anything at all besides hate.
Not being able to change anything and such, in the chorus, etc.
|The Dresden Dolls – The Kill Lyrics||13 years ago|
I am eleven feet
Six foot three
^That's talking about arrogance, like what Rachelragamuffin said.
I fought the British and I won
I am a rocket ship
A jet fighter
A paper airplane
^If this is about America (I think it is) then "I" is kind of ironic- actually, a bunch of rebels a long time ago did, so it's implying a sort of arrogance as well. And rocketship, jet fighter, paper airplane...again, eleven, eight, six foot three. Something extraordinary, not that extraordinary, and something completely and utterly normal, almost petty 'cause you're bragging about it.
Say what you will, I am the kill.
^That sounds pretty confident to me...too confident...again, arrogance...
The Dresden Dolls have a penchant for heavy sarcasm and I think this matches up pretty well with that- "Put Pat Sajak back in office" is a play on the enormous entertainment the American culture derives from politics, I think. And it's kind of sarcastic and self-degrading- hard to take seriously.
ZOMG can't wait for the new album, it comes out six days after my birthday C:
