Mudhoney – Pokin' Around Lyrics 7 years ago
I can't tell if this is about drugs or a vibrator or if it's some huge metaphor.
Or, instead of it being something they do by themselves, perhaps it's looking through the guy's stuff out of suspicion.

As if you didn't sound ignorant enough, you had to throw a 'literally' in there for good measure.

Kudos.

Oasis – Morning Glory Lyrics 7 years ago
As others have said, one song can have a billion meanings, and we can never truly know what it meant to it's creator. However, I think, as others have said, this is about addiction (keep in mind, though, that I don't know much about drugs, so I could be wrong on a few points I'm about to make), especially when you combine the lyrics with the seemingly-incoherent music video.

"When you're chained to the mirror and the razor-blade" -- I think the mirror is self-reflection, and the razor-blade is addiction. Your addiction has most likely estranged you from your loved ones and your life -- not completely, but somewhat -- and so you have all this time to reflect on it while you continue to get high.

"Another sunny afternoon, walking to the sound of my favorite tune" -- I think this could be exactly as it sounds; he's on the sidewalk in the city, ear-buds in. Perhaps it's noted because it's become one of the few normal facets of his life left. Or he could be going to meet his dealer. Or perhaps he's high and he has music on to enhance the effect, and doing drugs has become something as mundane -- yet as pleasant -- as simply taking a walk.

"Tomorrow never knows what it doesn't know too soon" -- he never knows when the drugs are going to permanently, suddenly fuck up his life. He's playing with fire. Or perhaps it's as simple as, when you get high frequently a certain number of times, eventually it stops giving you a high although you remain addicted and don't give up for fear of withdrawal. He knows this is impending, but he's in deep and doesn't want to stop.


"Well,
What's the story, Morning Glory?"

"Need a little time to wake up,
need a little time to rest my mind"

"You know you should,
so I guess you might as well"


In the music video, people are coming up to his door and trying to get in. Inside, it's dim, and he's just lazing about. I think this could be people he knows trying to reach him, trying to confront him about his drug use and how it's changing him and affecting his relationships/life, or maybe they're not aware, but they see he's changed and are demanding an explanation. When he deflects, waking up, tell-tale signs of use left over from last night -- "Need a little time to wake up, need a little time to rest my mind"-- they give up, rather bitterly, "You know you should, so I guess you might as well."

This could be way off, I probably don't know what the fuck I'm talking about, but there it is.
Good day.

That might make sense if this track wasn't from Bleach, their first album. This was before they got famous/got any media attention.

R.E.M. – You Are The Everything Lyrics 7 years ago
Perhaps it's about losing that feeling of security you had as a child, having new conflicts and responsibilities. Hardly being able to remember the last time the way you felt that way, until recently remembering those times in the car as a kid. Looking carelessly out the window, just getting lost in imaginative thought instead of worrying/overthinking everything. Wondering why, how, and when that feeling went away. Like Cosumel said.

R.E.M. – You Are The Everything Lyrics 7 years ago
I think music holds a different meaning for every listener, as well as the creator -- I can't say what it means to Stipe -- but when I actually listen to the lyrics, I can relate to this song a lot, in a more literal sense.

"Here's a scene, you're in the back seat layin' down
(Say, say, the light)

The windows wrap around
To sound of the travel and the engine
(Say, say, the light)
All you hear is time stand still in travel
And feel such peace and absolute
The stillness still that doesn't end
But slowly drifts into sleep"

I remember when I was little, riding to (or maybe it was from) my cousins' house, and -- I probably wasn't supposed to -- but I layed horizontal in back-seat of our Hyundai, and listened to the Oldies music that was playing, and looked up out the windows. It was just really peaceful and comfortable. Car rides have always been really special to me for some reason, even though it's nothing unusual. I just relate it with good memories, I guess. It makes me relate to this song on a very visceral level, and I think perhaps he uses that common memory to describe his feelings/thoughts about something else. I'd have to analyze it more to think of what exactly would be, however.

Nirvana – Negative Creep Lyrics 7 years ago
This is just my interpretation -- music holds a different meaning for everybody -- but here it goes;

Kurt was always striving for his father's approval and was often bullied by other students in school, mostly jocks. Kurt was never really into sports, and preferred artistic pursuits instead, which -- among other conflicts probably -- disappointed his father. The kids at school assumed he was gay because he had a friend who was gay, and they verbally/physically abused both him and his friend a lot. Kurt said he "started to feel proud of the fact he was gay even though he wasn't", and that he hates all the macho bullshit (listen to 'Buffy's Pregnant'. It seems he's singing about jocks and valley-girls and whatnot there, as well). Hence 'daddy's little girl ain't a girl no more.'
Kurt was also vastly changed after his parents divorce. He became a lot more withdrawn and bitter towards people in general (I'm a negative creep, this is starting to be, this is starting to be, drone!) and in his teens he hung out with the stoners/outcasts in his school, hence 'I'm a negative creep, and I'm stoned!'

I think perhaps the bit about 'this is out of our range and it's grown' is saying he can never get along with his family and the building conflict is just over his head, they can never be compatible or see eye-to-eye, and perhaps he feels this way about the majority of society and just isolates himself because he feels so different.

I don't know, honestly, that's just my analysis of it. None of us know, only Kurt did.
