Rudimentary Peni – Cosmetic Plague Lyrics 7 years ago
This is probably one of the best songs I've ever heard that exemplifies punk rock. It's lo-fi, muddled, angry, raw, spoken like vitriolic discharge out of disgust.

I'm in fucking love.

The Flatliners – He Was A Jazzman Lyrics 7 years ago
"I'll keep scratching at your sympathy
until you're good and ready to leave
until you feel a lot like me"

Just trying to force someone to see things the way you see them...

NO-CASH – Gasoline Lyrics 7 years ago
Best song, been there, angry day drunk and depressed, got nothing to do but get fucked up and not care where you're at.

Booze, drugs, anger and accepting it.

I'd like to believe that this song is meant to be satirical.

If that's what they call normal, then I'd rather be insane.

Makes me feel sane.

Leftover Crack – The Drug Song Lyrics 9 years ago
wow, there are some fucking idiots interpreting these lyrics.

This is a place to discuss the MEANINGS of SONGS, not talk about how awesome you and your robo-trips are.

Anyways, I think this song is about the love-hate relationship LoC has with drugs, they make them feel shitty, depressed, and feel like they're wasting their lives sometimes, but at least they aren't the 9 to 5 rat race fools who never experience drugs, ever, the good and the bad.

Polar Bear Club – Hollow Place Lyrics 9 years ago
a boy, possibly addicted to a substance? it would make sense if this whole album was about losing friends, family, yourself to a drug addiction, "Sometimes Things Just Disappear". "Eat Dinner" would be about losing your girl, this song would be about losing his confidence and dignity, "Heart Attack at Thirty" would be him finally losing his life and "Convinced I'm Wrong" could be like a tribute to his death, if he could write a song afterward.

maybe

The Cranberries – Zombie Lyrics 9 years ago
"Given the times and only listening to the song once my first interpretation was to think that it was about how people could sit around and let all of this happen and not care and get up and do something about it, you'd have to be a zombie, the only way to not take action with all that's wrong in the world today would be to convince yourself that it's all in your head."

this is a really good interpretation, nice way to think about it.

The Cranberries – Zombie Lyrics 9 years ago
possibly references PTSD?

"In your head, they're fighting... Zombie"

How crippling PTSD can be, with constant flashbacks to fighting "In your head".

Cake – Comfort Eagle Lyrics 9 years ago
"The wacky morning DJ says 'democracy's a joke.'"

The false rebellion that comes with genre's like Emo, Pop-punk, and Industrial.

submissions
The Mad Conductor – Tomb Diggin' Shovels Lyrics 9 years ago
I think this song is about drugs (possibly highly addictive drugs) and how doing them is like digging your own grave. Probably he's talking to a kid who thinks that heroin or something makes him write better lyrics.

The Mad Conductor – Louisiana Truth Potion And The Human Thought Recorder Lyrics 9 years ago
agreed, The Mad Conductor has to be one of the smartest hip hop groups to have ever existed.

The Mad Conductor – Louisiana Truth Potion And The Human Thought Recorder Lyrics 9 years ago
"how do you like your music?
ill and fresh or dumb and stupid"

obviously a blast on mainstream rap being retarded and the same formulated bullshit since it became en vogue.

glorious song, my interpretation is that it's about abandoning old conservative tradition and embracing progressivism.

Polar Bear Club – Heart attack at Thirty Lyrics 9 years ago
probably some sort of substance

submissions
Polar Bear Club – As 'twere the mirror Lyrics 9 years ago
I think this song is about the bygone uprising of bullshit "emo" and "scene" bands.

"if it's not clear, this is a love song"

might be a reference to the formulated lyrical styles of many bands that write easy to sing along lyrics for angsty teenagers.

submissions
The Thermals – Now We Can See Lyrics 9 years ago
actually, on second thought, it's mostly about each new civilization thinking they know the truth.

the Greeks, Romans, Americans, they all had history to see not to make the same mistakes as the last, yet they keep making those same basic mistakes that lead to the fall of their empires.

submissions
The Thermals – Now We Can See Lyrics 9 years ago
Along those lines, but I don't think it's a reference to Adam & Eve, just a commentary on human nature.

From the first neanderthal to modern man there's been almost no evolution in the way we treat each other or resolve conflicts.

but I think the writer of the song has an optimistic view of what humans can do in the future, since we're more connected as a species.

or he's being sarcastic and saying we're fucked.
