Sleater-Kinney – Get Up Lyrics 10 years ago
there's this interesting shift in the music rhythm which starts with with "I hit the mark!
I target moon, I target sky, I target sun. Fall down on the world. Fall down on the world. Fall down on the world...before it falls on you." singed by the backvocal with a sense of permanence, deeper feeling, that is somewhat antithetic in relation to the main vocal and makes a perfect "coupling by contrast".

The Smiths – William, It Was Really Nothing Lyrics 10 years ago
precisely,and he also try to explain to his friend he might have embraced such a boring relationship because their town is somewhat depressive and he just wanted someone to be with: "The rain falls hard on a humdrum town this town has dragged you down"
at the same he says he doesn't want to sound as if he's butting in his friends' live:
"And everybody's got to live their life and God knows I've got to live mine"

The Killers – Where the White Boys Dance Lyrics 10 years ago
in my opinion singers have all freedom to "tell stories", people tend to identify these foretold stories as if they were part of artist's life for real, that might not be the case sometimes. it could be based on some real fact, heard from friends, or maybe the ambiance he recalls from a film, so on. singers are creative spirits, they have this freedom to do much things even personify other genders, represent characters, so in my opinion that shouldn't be taken as if they're necessarily talking about themselves (indeed most do, but that's not necessary the case always) - that restricts one creative potential somewhat, in my opinion.

to conclude, whether it's about Brandon sexuality or not isn't important for me, I wouldn't dislike or like his musics better if it was the case.

if you like to put it that way, death, i'd say it's not about death as a concrete thing - i.e.someone who's really dying, but it's one of another kind: it's about someone who's letting go her usual beliefs and rationing. She feels now as if everything (from beggars to stars, whores and all of us) have a different meaning and "shoot straight for (her) heart" and seem clearer than ever.

so it's about 'getting up', you could say getting over long lasting beliefs in one's life which are 'dying'.

Bloc Party – She's Hearing Voices Lyrics 10 years ago
I've a impression it's about someone (probably the narrator himself!) who is getting out of control (bad trip) after using too much of some psychedelics, and starts feeling some uncontrollable fear, remembers earlier warns from friends, etc, is having signs something is going wrong ("She's hearing voices call her, She's hearing voices warn her"), and took a lot of it:

"She got a red pill, blue pill
Red pill, blue pill" (x14)

in the last part, there's some confusion between "she" and "I", maybe a reference to some dissociative (despersonalization) effect of the drug, maybe he couldn't remember who he/she was ("milk of amnesia", a reminiscence of his 'sober' consciousness telling him what could help him put it away "milk of magnesia", a laxative, but he couldnt figure it out during the bad trip). The confusion of mind progresses and at the very last he doesn't know even if he's alive ("I'm tearing down posters, I was never ever alive.")

yes, that is my impression, seems a lot like someone (possibly, the narrator himself) was getting too much on drugs, psychedelics, despite being warned or having signs something is going wrong ("She's hearing voices call her, She's hearing voices warn her") but got way too far on the quantity consumed, that is reinforced by the verses

"She got a red pill, blue pill
Red pill, blue pill" (x14)

in the last part, there's some confusion between "she" and "I", maybe a reference to some dissociative effect of the drug, maybe he couldn't remember who he/she was ("milk of amnesia", a reminiscence of his consciousness telling him what could help him put it away "milk of magnesia", a laxative, but he couldnt figure it out during the bad trip). The confusion of mind and progresses and at last he can't even figure if he/she is alive ("I'm tearing down posters, I was never ever alive.")

The Smiths – The Boy with the Thorn in His Side Lyrics 10 years ago
i mean "can't", instead of "can":

How can't they see the Love in our eyes
And still they don't believe us ?

How can they see the Love in our eyes
And still they don't believe us ?

not important, but shouldnt it be:

"How <> they see the Love in our eyes
And still they don't believe us ?"

instead of

"How can they see the Love in our eyes
And still they don't believe us ?"
