Starfucker – Rawnald Gregory Erickson the Second Lyrics 1 month ago
This song is named after an old friend from high-school, which gives a little more insight on what the song itself is about: the inevitable fading of relationships between yourself and the people you used to know.

AJJ – People II: The Reckoning Lyrics 2 months ago
@[buggie92:28844] I noticed that a lot of folk-punk incorporates an extremely toaist mindset into their lyrics. I love it a lot.

AJJ – Kokopelli Face Tattoo Lyrics 2 months ago
In reference to the line where Sean (the lead singer of AJJ) sings, "I've got a bad case of the yellow flashlight blues.":

In 2012, in the band’s hometown of Phoenix, AZ, someone left a series of yellow flashlights around town which had been turned into explosives. When people picked up the flashlights and turned them on, they exploded.

It’s unclear whether Sean has the blues from the cruelty of a world in which people injure strangers with improvised explosives, or whether the world’s ugliness makes him feel like inflicting random pain himself.


AJJ – Getting Naked, Playing with Guns Lyrics 2 months ago
It makes sense. Just think about it. The feeling of nostalgia says it all.

"Is this the way the future is meant to be? 'Cause it looks a lot like yesterday to me."

I'm so so so in love.

Slothrust – Horseshoe Crab Lyrics 1 year ago
I think this song is about derealization/depersonalization.
This song makes me feel understood. I enjoy it a lot.

Beach House – 10:37 Lyrics 1 year ago
God, I love Depression Cherry. Thank god for Beach House.

Angel Olsen – Unfucktheworld Lyrics 1 year ago
I think this song is about someone realizing that they basically sold their soul to the one that they love, and coming to the fact that the one they love might not always be around in their life, but they themselves will be. So they need to be their for themselves.

Japanese Breakfast – Everybody Wants To Love You Lyrics 1 year ago
Simple. A song about wanting someone.

I really love this one. So beautiful and unique.

Department of Eagles – Family Romance Lyrics 1 year ago
I feel like this song might be about a relationship between someone and their own family member, hence the title: Family Romance.

"There's every good reason / To let down your hair / It's nobody's business / And nobody cares." I think this is the singer talking to his relative, trying to convince her to partake in sexual interactions with him.

"Ask our neighbors," makes me think that maybe even the neighbors have heard them and/or seen them have sexual relations with each other. "I would know," sounds kind of like he knows that the neighbors know about their relationship, maybe because he's heard them talk about it and spread rumors?

"In spite of the weather / We can have a good time." I feel like this insinuates that the two are stuck at home together a lot, but despite that they can still 'have fun together' -- as in having deeper relations with each other.

"...You don't have to close your eyes / The way you used to do," makes me believe that at one point before, she knew it was wrong. Maybe she still does, but she's not as worried anymore? Just thoughts, I don't know.

Anyways that's just my interpretation. I really would like to know what this song is actually about. I really dig it. It's a chill tune.

The Shins – Fantasy Island Lyrics 1 year ago
I think this song is about someone reminiscing on his own childhood and how much he's seemed to have changed but realizing that deep down he's pretty much the same -- and he doesn't like that. He'd rather run away "to fantasy island" and pretend to be different to please those around him.

CBMC – Not Your Pretty Boy (Ruin My Body) Lyrics 1 year ago
Accept people as they are, not as you'd like them to be.

Bruce Springsteen – Hungry Heart Lyrics 1 year ago
I love Sexton Blake's version of this song.

I think this song means what is says: "Everybody's got a hungry heart." Everybody's heart continues to long for something -- to fill something. Another notable underlying "theme" of the song is that our desires may never be completely fulfilled -- our hearts will never cease to be hungry.

Beach House – Heart of Chambers Lyrics 1 year ago
love to trip to this song. it sounds so beautiful and different every time.

Alex G – Gnaw Lyrics 1 year ago
This song reminds me of something bad that happened once. Maybe that's not what it means, but that's how it seems to me.

Dr. Dog – Where'd All the Time Go? Lyrics 1 year ago
makes me think of getting old and dying -- with a head full of nostalgia and memories that are growing farther and farther away every day.

Unknown Mortal Orchestra – Multi-Love Lyrics 1 year ago
This song makes me imagine a man who falls in love with an intersex person and doesn't know how he feels about it. That's probably not what it means, but hey. It fits in my imagination.
