Red Hot Chili Peppers – Scar Tissue Lyrics 9 years ago
Every song isn't about drugs. Every song isn't a personal confessional.

This one is about alienation involving fictional characters who have nothing to do with Anthony Kiedis.

Wondrous stuff, still.

Collective Soul – Run Lyrics 10 years ago
This song is about not selling out; being true to your craft.

He's talking about being a musician. That's what he is. The song is applicable to any craft, though.

R.E.M. – Green Grow The Rushes Lyrics 10 years ago
Exploitation. Yep. Right on.

Bruce Springsteen – Tunnel Of Love Lyrics 11 years ago
Blue Monkey nailed the biggest part of this song.

Still, I get a religious feel from this one ... and I'm not the kind of guy who finds religious wisdom in unusual places. I sense that the Tunnel of Love is a reference to God's love. You may get lost, lose each other, but the tunnel can guide you. This entire album has religious overtones.

Great stuff.

Atreyu – Becoming the Bull Lyrics 11 years ago
Taking charge of a situation ... or of your life.

Become the bull. Set the tempo. It's all waiting on you.

Five for Fighting – The Riddle Lyrics 11 years ago
Answer to the riddle: Love, emotion, experience = life.

Bruce Hornsby – Walk in the Sun Lyrics 11 years ago
I don't think the guy in the song really has a relationship with this chick.

He wishes he did, but he's only a ticket-taker. Ain't happening. So he dreams about it and you hear about it in the song.

Coldplay – Speed of Sound Lyrics 11 years ago
I think some of this song is nonsensical stuff that sounds good.

The song is urging someone to ignore the madness around them and find a more profound meaning.

If you're trying to make sense of "birds came flying from the underground," well, good luck.

Coldplay – Fix You Lyrics 11 years ago
I think it's about looking down a path with someone who is troubled. They need inspiration. You think you can provide it. Is that what's supposed to happen? Is this the path?

Nirvana – Rape Me Lyrics 11 years ago
The article was in Vanity Fair. Sorry.

Nirvana – Rape Me Lyrics 11 years ago
It's about being "raped" in the media.

Not necessarily by the media itself. He sings: "My favorite inside source," which is a reference to a Rolling Stone article that referenced Kurt's odd behavior. The story attributed a lot of stuff to an "inside source." I've always assumed the source was Courtney Love.

Bruce Hornsby – Circus On The Moon Lyrics 11 years ago
Strikes me as a would-be Columbine situation. Kid seems still in touch with reality, though, so it's probably just talk.

Bruce Hornsby – Every Little Kiss Lyrics 11 years ago
Bruce despises this song now. Won't play it. Said the emotions that yielded the song no longer are relevant.

Silversun Pickups – Lazy Eye Lyrics 11 years ago
It's about struggling to approach someone you're into ... or think you're into.
