Queens of the Stone Age – The Vampyre Of Time And Memory Lyrics 6 years ago
Im 50 and I totally agree you could interpret this song that way...however i feel its most likely about being dead, then revived and not feeling great about it...in fact hes depressed as hell as his wife and family are overjoyed he survived...kinda like people that survive plane crashes and can never put together WHY? how come 151 died and i survived?

Portugal. The Man – Someday Believers Lyrics 6 years ago
Every song is more overwhelming then the one before it! I know im a broken record but except for a few tracks John stays on the same basic theme alot of letting us know that thinking something out there is going to save us we are screwed. ALSO once again he hints at having his secrets...again I dont know what his issues are but hes not afraid to put them out there for us to speculate...

Portugal. The Man – Waves Lyrics 6 years ago

Portugal. The Man – Modern Jesus Lyrics 6 years ago
Cool song, slight variation from Johns self loathing, but just slightly! Anti religious theme continues, well not anti religious totally because he mentions the devil in all 4 tracks so far, usually equating himself to the devil...Im just delving into John, what a great songwriter....it really sucks that danger mouse contractually is given cowriter on every song...I know he adds a feel but these are Johns songs..

submissions
Portugal. The Man – Evil Friends Lyrics 6 years ago
AGAIN John is telling us that hes damaged goods, stay away...I dont want or need friends...he talks alot about "sinning" and how people dont approve of his lifestyle choices..again I only have 2 albums form the dude but sexuality and maybe suggestions of being bipolar surface in this track...one thing for sure, all 3 tracks are completely SELF LOATHING...believe me i struggle with many issues of self esteem that seem to be a theme here...cant wait for others to tell me if im just hearing my own issues or what lol

Portugal. The Man – Creep in a T-Shirt Lyrics 6 years ago
One of my favorites on the record...Seems like it follows the same theme I commented on the first track...Hes tortured, and if you dont fucking like it, too damn bad...also i dont know a huge amount about John but the lines:

Never was a child, I was born this way
Always there but always out of place
Feels so alien

seem to suggest sexuality issues is John gay? I have no problem if he is it would explain some of his lyrics

submissions
Portugal. The Man – Plastic Soldier Lyrics 6 years ago
This is such a great record I cant believe im first to comment...Seems like a breakup that John cant really wrap his head around but he knows hes shallow as hell but really doesnt care LOL...I feel alot of his songs have the message "yea im a complicated, fucked up dude..deal with it"

Queens of the Stone Age – ...Like Clockwork Lyrics 6 years ago
as someone that turned 50 this year i see it as coming to grips with life being very short and regrets are many...Josh isnt 50 but even at 40 he may be feeling alot of those same feelings...

submissions
Queens of the Stone Age – Smooth Sailing Lyrics 6 years ago

Queens of the Stone Age – Fairweather Friends Lyrics 6 years ago
Kinda like when Dulli wrote "Bonnie Brae" for Mark some years ago now

submissions
Queens of the Stone Age – Fairweather Friends Lyrics 6 years ago
Seeing Mark lanegan in writing credits we must assume it has something to do with getting Mark clean from heroin and away from his lifestyle.

Queens of the Stone Age – My God Is the Sun Lyrics 6 years ago
very simple one...watch the show 'No reservations" with Josh and he talks about his love for the desert and how it defines his life...the nature, the sunrises...Sometimes we try to read way too much into these lyrics...he is just talking about his home area that he loves very much...

submissions
Queens of the Stone Age – If I Had A Tail Lyrics 6 years ago
Im surprised Alex Turner didnt have a hand in writing this...maybe Josh tried to write an Arctic Monkey type feeling song for his collaboration...

Red Hot Chili Peppers – Even You Brutus? Lyrics 8 years ago
WOW nobody yet? This is one badass song on a great record...

submissions
Red Hot Chili Peppers – Police Station Lyrics 8 years ago
Heres a weird thought: Could the verses be about the over abundance of spoiled, misguided young woman of hollywood? Lyndsey Lohan, Brittney and to some extent Mylie? I know it seems weird but read the first 3 verses...AK loves talking about LA and these idiots have really been in the news these last few years...

submissions
Frank Turner – Redemption Lyrics 8 years ago
A major theme of this album: REGRETS...I guess with Frank getting older he is realizing what alot of us do in middle age...regrets get fucking bigger and worse the older you get...you start to see things (choices parents made) differently..you now know some of the things you THOUGHT you knew when you were younger...now knowing you didnt know SHIT..powerful stuff people

submissions
Frank Turner – Peggy Sang the Blues Lyrics 8 years ago
a lot of dream references on this record....

Frank Turner – I Am Disappeared Lyrics 8 years ago
Thats cool if you know Frank but i think he wasnt telling you EVERYTHING about this wonderful piece of work...It says so much more...it talks about living with regrets and how they can haunt you as you get older...He tells us we need to do everything we can when we are young or we will be sorry later..it also touches on a theme that is brought up elsewhere in this album : think for yourself, you dont have to swallow what the corporate world is selling you...thats just my opinion of course

Smile Empty Soul – Don't Ever Leave Lyrics 10 years ago
This song is about the concept of CO-DEPENDENCY. As a previous poster pointed out, who would be cool with being spit on in the face? someone with zero self esteem that is willing to put up with all kinds of shit as long as, what? as long as they are not abandoned. Clearly he doesnt care what the fuck she does as lond as she doesnt EVER LEAVE! The part about wetting the bed, just asking to be held. Very serious subject matter, very well done.

Scars On Broadway – Whoring Streets Lyrics 10 years ago
has anyone seen what daron looks like at this point? dude looks like hes been crawling around iraq..im not saying this to be a racist idiot im just saying i think these songs are way deeper..i really believe this song is being narrated in the eyes of a terrorist..more specific maybe one of the terrorists getting ready to slam into one of the towers on 911..it carries the very judgemental muslim attitude when it talks of "whoring streets" and that the terrorist is sort of bitter about the fact that he has to die to show all the "whores" (americans) that the way we live is wrong and that even though he will be did once he does his deed so will so many of the "whores"

Scars On Broadway – Insane Lyrics 10 years ago
I think the last dude kinda hit on it..for ME it tells about using drugs (mainly opiates like hydros or heroine) because it touches on WHY people use: escape..it also talks about the pain..which to me talks about the pain of withdrawals..you try to get clean but with opiates its tough, and for me when i decide to use again i also decide to bring on the pain of withdrawals again, seeing it as a cost of doing business but accepted..

The Gutter Twins – Circle The Fringes Lyrics 10 years ago
if you like this see "front steet" from same album..the reason greg dulli continually writes amazing songs about
addiction, depression, suicide and the unhappiness of living in todays fucked up society is that he speaks from
experience...

submissions
The Gutter Twins – Front Street Lyrics 10 years ago
wow where do i start..first off Greg Dulli is criminally overlooked as a songwriter in the mainstream world (thankfully a world i dont reside)..to say this is one of gregs best is a mouthful, but it covers so many deep topics...as usual for dulli its clearly about addiction and depression...a cynical look at "straight" life where the is no future except pain..lyrically tied to "circle the fringe" also on this album...anyone that has struggled with life and addictions NEEDS to listen to gregs music
