Alkaline Trio – My Little Needle Lyrics 18 years ago
i think this song IS about not being able to find a girl...the needle-in-the-haystack thing is referencing it..."the stack's been burned away," so the needle is left, but "i'm so inebriated i, i cannot see, three feet in front of me," he's so drunk he still can't see the needle / find the girl. it makes much more sense then saying it's about heroin because of the word needle, and i don't see ANYTHING in this song otherwise that would make it about drugs. the "lately i've been feeling dead inside / like my guts have dried up and died / every night, i water 'em back to life" is that he is lonely, so he drinks. and somehow i doubt that skiba's "doped-up ass" would want to "beat the fuck out of" me for fucking "misinterpretating" this song...because that's definitely a word. jackass.

Alkaline Trio – Bye Bye Love Lyrics 18 years ago
hey...i think this song was on a split with the blue meanies but it's not "also by them"...and is it just me or in the last chorus does he say "it's a stupid fuckin' lullaby...bye bye love"

Alkaline Trio – Keep 'Em Coming Lyrics 18 years ago
this is the very first alk3 song i heard, and i didn't know it was them- i had to search the lyrics all over the place, and the only ones i could remember were "i've got toothpicks in my eyes..."

Alkaline Trio – Blue Carolina Lyrics 18 years ago
isn't it "i've got the SCARS to remind me..."? and i always thought i heard "SMOKE! WEED!" too. but i don't think they tried to make this a "weed song". i don't know...this song kicks a lot of ass, i prefer the alk3 version myself, mostly because i like matt skiba's voice better, but they're both good

Alkaline Trio – Enjoy Your Day Lyrics 18 years ago
ah...this is probably my least favorite alk3 song...i like the lyrics and everything, but dan's voice starts to grate on me...it's so slow i can start to hear kind of a lisp, like on "obviOUSHly you were busy..." does anyone else hear that?

Alkaline Trio – My Standard Break From Life Lyrics 18 years ago
i think it's about a guy who's so lazy that his girlfriend either cheats on him or breaks up with him...the standard break from life is just his laziness, but standard? so it's an on-going thing...

Alkaline Trio – Cooking Wine Lyrics 18 years ago
i love this song ever-so-much...at first, i thought it was about drinking to avoid the pain of seeing an ex with another guy...but now i think it's just drinking...and his vision is blurred so he sees two of the girl...whereas before it would've been either you and the new guy look pretty together, bitterly...or he sees just the girl and the guy is blurred.

Jimmie's Chicken Shack – High Lyrics 18 years ago
this is just about why people get high, i guess..."Make light of the weight, time off from hell"...escape the bad situations you might be in. "To change the seat you're in; in time you won't come back again." "What does it take, to get, you, high?" at this point he is asking not like what drugs or whatever, but what will it take to make your life better...or something.

Jimmie's Chicken Shack – Let's Get Flat Lyrics 18 years ago
ahh...ahh...we both have alkaline trio-influenced screen names...excellent.

anyway. jcs is very underrated. this song is about love, i think, and giving up..."somehow this shape i still sustain" i've made it so far, then "let's get flat"...give up, lose the shape you've worked to maintain.

Calibretto 13 – Little Gay Man Lyrics 18 years ago
alright...despite what it explicitly says...i think this IS a gay-bashing song...title = horrible. beginning of song = horrible. middle of song, hey! things are looking up. "Oh yeah, I'm so cool. I just told a little gay man to kiss off. / Am I a Christian or what?" that's the right (sarcastic) thing to say! so for a line or two i was reassured that this wan't all bad. then i got to..."Hey little gay man, you can like girls again." no! well number one, if this speaker actually believed that it wasn't christian to persecute people by their sexual orientation, he wouldn't spend this refrain shouting "HEY LITTLE GAY MAN." why should people have to be defined by who they fuck? number two, if the speaker believed "God still loves you," the line "you can like girls again" completely negates any sense of acceptance of people for who they ARE. and "hey little gay man, drop that sin." SIGH...ok if the bible says that homosexuals are "wrong," and it probably does, i've never checked...but if the religion declares that it IS a sin, and this "little gay man" won't be loved by God or the speaker until he "drops" it, then what's the point of this fucking song? i'm not gay, i just enjoy a little TOLERANCE. is that so wrong?
