REO Speedwagon – Golden Country Lyrics 8 years ago
Brilliant this song is just brilliant. so full of meaning. I agree with Inoticethings. The United States "Golden Country" is supposed to be a country of equality and equal opportunity, but it's not. The 'golden country' isn't really quite so golden. I'm not entirely sure if it's talking to the country as a whole or just the government when they say "Golden country your face is so red, With all of your money your poor can be fed, You strut around and you flirt with disaster, Never really carin' just what comes after." It speaks about the ignorance of our country and the selfishness. It takes on the attitude, that people don't care about one another, they only care about themselves. "With all of your money the poor can be fed" Rich people have more than enough money to live comfortably, many have money lying around in bank accounts that will never even be touched, yet they choose to ignore the millions of people that could desperately use even just ten dollars. Many choose to believe there is no world outside the cushy one that money brings them. Ignorance.
"You act concerned but then why turn away, When a lady was raped on your doorstep today, Well your blacks are cryin' but your back is still turned, And your freaks are dyin' but your back is still turned, You better stop your hidin or your country will burn" I believe this part is talking about the government. They act as though they are concerned about the people and issues struggling in our country, but when it comes right down to it, it's all about money and power. They will just hide out in hopes that all their problems and responsibilities will just go away and take care of themselves, so they can get back to focusing on themselves.
Finally it goes to "The time has come for you my friend, To all this ugliness we must put an end, Before we leave we must make a stand, oh yeah......" We must fight to stop the injustice. Stand up for what is right and try to stop the ignorance, carelessness, and selfishness. and realize that you (as in one person) is not the center of the universe.

REO Speedwagon – Son Of A Poor Man Lyrics 8 years ago
I love this song. It is quite obvious what it's about.
It's a story about a guy that is in love with a girl, and she loves him too. I don't believe they have every expressed these feelings, I think it's more of a "you don't know what you got til it's gone (or leaving)" type love. They've always been close but never together. She is leaving to try and follow her dream of being a big star, and she can't do that 'in a lonely farmers town.' He lets her go because he doesn't believe he is good enough for her and he believes that she deserves more.
'But if you ever get lonely, Just pick up the telephone, And the son of a poor man will bring you home.' He will always be there, waiting for her to come back to him, if she ever realizes that she loves him more than her dream.

Pink Floyd – Pigs on the Wing (Part 2) Lyrics 8 years ago
These songs obviously shows change. with the first and the second being complete opposites of each other it obviously shows growth. It is positive change and positive growth. I'm sure it goes deeper than what I am thinking but I kind of relate it back to the album in that, Pink Floyd wanted it to be seen as, In the beginning (of the album) you as a person are weak,scared, and alone. Then by the end after listening to all the songs and what they are saying(lyrics), they play it as you have grown. You are stronger, braver, and not alone.

Or maybe you can even relate it back to life in that, at the beginning your a follower and naive, you believe in everything the(dogs, pigs, sheep)or the government tells you and never think to look below the surface. You never look for the truth, your ignorant. Then, after listening to what they are saying and realizing some truth in it, you have grown. You finally stand up and realize that everything isn't so black and white.

I don't think that trying to figure out a meaning for only THIS song will work. I think that with this album you have to look at it as a whole. You have to think of all the songs as one and try to interpret it from there. At the very least you have to hook it up with Pigs on the wing part 1. but those are just my thoughts.

Pink Floyd – The Gunner's Dream Lyrics 8 years ago
The more I listen to this song the more the meaning becomes clear, to me. This is an amazing amazing song, one of my favorites, and I think one Pink Floyd's songs with the deepest story. The song goes into at least two to three different points of view depending how you look at it. I believe it starts off with the father of a family (possibly Roger's father) and his point of view as he is about to die in the war.

Floating down through the clouds
memories come rushing up to meet me now
in the space between the heavens
and in the corner os some foreign field
I had a dream
I had a dream

The first lyrics start off with him falling through the sky, probably being ejected from a plane that has been shot down, he knows he is going to die. Memories come rushing up to meet me now(your life flashes before your eyes.)But in the space between the heavens and the corner of some foreign field (further proof that he is floating to his eventual death.) I had a dream (he has a dream, the dream he is dying for, the reason he is fighting in the war.)

This either comes from the point of view of him visualizing his own funeral while he's falling or from his sons point of view.

goodbye Max
goodbye ma
after the service when you're walking slowly to the car
and the silver in her hair shines in the cold november air
you hear the tolling bell
and touch the silk in your lapel
and as the tear drops rise to meet the comfort of the band
you take her frail hand
and hold on to the dream

Goodbye Max goodbye Ma(he's saying goodbye to his son and his wife in his mind.)The middle lyrics speak solely of the funeral itself. And hold on to the dream (Remember what he died for. Always remember and always fight for what is right and hope that one day the world will be right. Don't let his death be a tragity, let it be further inspiration to strive for a peaceful world to live in. DON'T LET HIS DEATH BE IN VAIN.)

A place to stay
enough to eat
somwhere old heroes shuffle safely down the street
where you can speak out loud
about your doubts and fears
and what's more no-one ever disappears
you never hear their standard issue kicking in your door
you can relax on both sides of the tracks
and maniacs don't blow holes in bandsmen by remote control
and everyone has recourse to the law
and no-one kills the children anymore
and no-one kills the children anymore

These lyrics are the dream. The dream he fought to keep alive. That people will always have a home and food. Someplace where old heros who made this dream real are once again living their lives.A place where you can speak your mind without fear. A place where everyone follows the law and you don't have to live in constant fear that others will hurt you or your loved ones. A place where children live a full happy lifes that aren't cut short.

night after night
going round and round my brain
his dream is driving me insane

His fathers dream is driving him insane. He wants it to be real and true but how? He doesn't want his father to have died for something that will never happen. How could the world have strayed so far from what is good and right?

in the corner of some foreign field
the gunner sleeps tonight
whats done is done

In some unknown foreign soil(He died away from everything and evreyone he ever loved and possibly his body was never found.)The gunner sleeps tonight (he is dead.)What's done is done (you can't change it.)

we cannot just write off his final scene
take heed of his dream
take heed

We cannot just write off this final scene (You can't change what has already happened but you can do something about it, you can fight for the dream. You cannot forget what he lived for, what he died for. You cannot ignore the problems with the world. A quote that sums of this line perfectly is "Where ignorance is our master, there is no possibility of real peace."-- Dalai Lama) Take heed to the dream. Take heed (make it a reality.)

Pink Floyd – Eclipse Lyrics 8 years ago
The lyrics above forgot to include the final lines of the song, that you can hear if you listen hard enough along with a beating heart. "There is no dark side of the moon really. Matter of fact it's all dark."
