Matchbox Twenty – If You're Gone Lyrics 3 years ago
@[greengreenleaf:27100] I like this part, and always thought the "I bet you need more than you mind" was a genius lyric. Rob's really underrated for his lyrics imo

Roger Clyne & The Peacemakers – Bottom Of The Bay Lyrics 3 years ago
just my take, seems like a couple was somewhere on a beach and made some sweet, sweet music together, and then lost it somehow when they went back to their lives...maybe Neptune/Posiedon heard it and liked it so much he stole it for himself and that's why they don't have it anymore.

Slipknot – Vermilion, Pt. 2 Lyrics 3 years ago
Always saw this as well as Vermillion pt 1 it as a metaphor showing that going from one relationship to the next to the next to the next because of some small problem as the same feelings/issues with being a serial killer. Vermillion pt 1 is before/during the relationship as well as the stalking/build up before actually murdering his victim, and the second part of the song is after the relationship/victim is killed how he realizes the perfect companion never actually existed, and he knows that, but he can't let those feelings build up again...then the videos came out, and it fit that image in my brain perfectly. always thought it was actually pretty intelligent if that's what he actually was doing.

Tom Petty – Refugee Lyrics 3 years ago
@[kmk_natasha:23130] This is exactly how I hear it. "We've both been hurt, doesn't mean you gotta seclude yourself and can't enjoy this now. we got something going here, and we both know it, let's not ruin it with our hang-ups from being hurt before"

The Refreshments – Nada Lyrics 3 years ago
I always saw the storm as something big coming at the narrator, or life in general even, and the narrator driving into it, then walking into it, giving up his vehicle, shoes on the other side of the river, and taking nothing but his bottle of tequila and lime and saying "fuck it, lets go!" and walking into the storm to see if it makes him feel more alive.

The Refreshments – Mekong Lyrics 3 years ago
There's a great and touching article where Roger talks about his trip to Thailand during or after college with his friend Micheal. The went with 300 bucks between them and made ends meet by giving guitar lessons for cash, and they drank Mekhong whiskey because it was cheap and strong (Roger always jokes that it'll strip the white off your teeth and advises not to drink it but keep it around for cleaning things). Micheal was with Roger in Thailand where he wrote this song.
Micheal later died a long, slow, hard death due to cystic fibrosis, and often Roger introduces this song by dedicating it to Micheal and giving the "Here's to this thing we all share, Here's to Live!" toast before they kick the song off. This song along with "Leaky Little Boat" inspired my tattoo and is one of my favorite songs of all time.

Roger Clyne & The Peacemakers – Loco To Stay Sane Lyrics 3 years ago
A few small corrections to the lyrics...First verse you have "I’m gonna feel better when I walk out your door" and it should read "I wanna feel better when I walk outside your door."

Second Verse you have
"Got a new uniform, do I get a casket
And a one-way ticket
or do I have a way back home?"
and it should be
"With my new uniform do I get a Casket?
A one way ticket, or do you plan to bring me back home?" and you also forgot the word "mighty" before "good question". Nothing huge, just didn't ring right in my brain lol

Roger Clyne & The Peacemakers – Counterclockwise Lyrics 3 years ago
A song that always reminds me of my friends, and how on our trips together time ceases to be important, and how that's the point.

Roger Clyne & The Peacemakers – Leaky Little Boat Lyrics 3 years ago
One of my all time favorite songs as far as lyrics ago, and inspired my tattoo (along with Mekong). This is a huge metaphor for life, and not just our life, but everyone's lives. We are each in our own little boat that's leaking and will eventually sink with no sail, no anchor and no land in sight... and it's scary, but take heart, because we are ALL alone adrift together, so smile, wave, share in our fear together and love each other..."Here we go!"
Youtube has an interview with Roger where he says he woke up in Mexico one day from a dream and had almost this entire song (chord progression, hook, lyrics, and the metaphor) all ready to just roll out of his head.

Roger Clyne & The Peacemakers – Green and Dumb Lyrics 3 years ago
There's a pretty cool interview with Roger out on youtube where he talks about two inspirations for this song, one was the migrant workers on his family's ranch when he was a youngster, that after work they always stayed to themselves and did their thing and the family did their own thing, and they didn't mingle much, and imagining this feeling of being outside the ranch house but looking in and seeing the family there, and the second being after a fight with his wife at his parents house and basically getting booted out for a while til he calmed down and looking in and seeing her dancing to the radio and wanting to be back together...just a beautiful song.
