Bob Marley and the Wailers – Redemption Song Lyrics 10 years ago
These lines were taken from a speech given by Marcus Garvey in Nova Scotia during October 1937 and published in his Black Man magazine

"We are going to emancipate ourselves from mental slavery because whilst others might free the body, none but ourselves can free the mind. Mind is your only ruler, sovereign. The man who is not able to develop and use his mind is bound to be the slave of the other man who uses his mind ..."

Geoff; Sorry for your loss. She must have meant a lot to leave an impression like that.

Thursday – Signals Over The Air Lyrics 11 years ago
Okay. I totally get this song. Whatever message he's trying to get across is not being understood, or being misunderstood and misinterpreted. People are listening, but not really listening. It's not about sex. It about taking the least desirable part from him, from his art, from his feelings, etc and glorifying it(at least that's all that is broadcast), but never scratching the surface and really knowing him. He sounds very frustrated.

Being a performer, an artist, etc and being on stage or in the public eye is constricting. Hence the incandescent corset drawing tight.

We you say his name, he wants to take that away from you. He wants to take your essence, your being, your soul, your blood and have you experience the same as him.

This song is very forthright and open.

Geoff; People are listening. Say what you have to say. You can't expect everyone to understand, but there are people who do.

Great Song! It really makes you think about how much we actually listen to people.

George Strait – Run Lyrics 12 years ago
I saw the tribute special on CBS to George Strait and the version by Taylor Swift was excellent! I downloaded the video in HD. Wish she would put it on one of her albums. I'd buy it just for that song.

Hum – Suicide Machine Lyrics 13 years ago
This song is about one person and one person only. It's about two parts of the same person. It's written from a very interesting perspective and that is himself speaking about the part he's upset with and wants to change. He wants to end the sleeplessness, he wants time for himself, and he doesn't want to feel any guilt about making this change. The suicide machine is built for two(the two parts of himself). After they are dead he will leave behind the guilt and the two parts will become one.

From the interviews I've seen of Matt Talbot, this sort of introversion fits him perfectly and a lot of other vocal artists as well. This is a great song. All of the imagery and symbolism is there to make this song decipherable. It's not a sad song or about someone literally committing suicide. It's actually a song about looking at yourself, wanting to make a change, and having hope for the future.

Hum – I Hate It Too Lyrics 13 years ago
CORRECTED LYRICS:

Morning gray ignites a twisted mess of foreign shapes and sounds, I wish the ceiling was the ground.
I'll send you flowers made of silent tiny pieces of the sun to help me make up for this one.
While you send me tidal waves of love when you're alone and I can't remember what you do to find a way to turn the signal back to heaven sounding blue and bring me faithful back to you.

And she don't hold me right, she's never going to get me there.
And she don't hold me right, she's never going to get me there, not tonight.

If we break off gently in slow motion spinning outward into space,
my hand, always firm and gently at the wheel, while you sweetly hold my face.
And I need you to give it meaning, I need you to share the view or it becomes a time for me to love myself like every other thing I do.

And she don't hold me right, she's never going to get me there.
And she don't hold me right, she's never going to get me there, not tonight

Hum – Green To Me Lyrics 13 years ago
HERE ARE THE REAL LYRICS

The morning image from the satellites is all blue and green.
And we've all got wounds to clean, here's a rag, here's some gasoline.

She wakes up fine and rested well, released at last from in the sleeping cell, breathing comes with ease.
It's a sweet revenge,
built on a chemical ride, my medicine man is the best wires to the temples,
place them on let's see how we sound.

It's all green to me.
What a sweet revenge.
It's all green to me.

See them lift off one by one, I see a cool spot here let's bring her down.
Level to the ground, a lovely mess that I am blessed to see, of me, of me

She lifts her wings up high, sensors show a lifetime until we die.
And all the dreams' details perfected in the colored sky.

The morning image from the satellites is all blue and green.
And we've all got wounds to clean, here's a rag, here's some gasoline.
It's all green to me. (Lift up your skies and all the other times, you realize.)
It's all green to me. (It lifts up your days in a single phase, I felt your hand.)
It's all green to me. (Lift up your skies and all the other times, you realize.)
It's all green to me. (It lifts up your days in a single phase.)

Hum – The Inuit Promise Lyrics 13 years ago
The rest of the song is missing. At the end when "come down and see" is repeated, the following is what is being sung in the background:

Your solvents frozen here on the petal rung
is all we have to see
enlarged inside as we espy
the warming sea.
Your breath diffused and never realized
aside from where the panicked hide
and I
just a subtle lift
provider on the other side

Thursday – Ladies And Gentlemen: My Brother, The Failure (with Tim Kasher) Lyrics 14 years ago
Great Song Thursday!
Sounds like when someone has a problem(drugs, drinking, etc) and is hitting bottom. When you get that feeling that no one cares or even notices you. People with addiction problems begin to lie to get by and it's so easy to believe them because you never had any reason to doubt them in the past.
I like the interlude part of the song where everything is a dream and the exact opposite of this reality.

Sparta – Red Alibi Lyrics 18 years ago
I think this was written when his girlfriend broke up with him due to everything that built up to that point. It sounds like he wanted to overlook things that had happened in the past, but the past came back to haunt him.

There were only two errors I spotted in the above lyrics.
1. From the truth down "through" the past
2. Will pierce "this" anecdote

Lyrics -
In the back of my mind a voice speaks
spells out the master plan
now I know
she swings with the ease of a hammer
from the truth down through the past
and I know

What's right, went wrong
from when it started
to this the finish
I'll try to find
a place in your new life....
To set the fire
and cover your tracks
Time will tell, the past laughs last

syllables will try and judge you
will pierce this anecdote
now I know
your plea is a case of reason
and this deletes your alibi
and I know

once tried, left wrong
from where it started, to here the finish
I'll try to find
a place in your new life

The traps have been set
and this will change everything


Great Song!
